Through the Rain

Wisely, Mariah Carey forgoes her hip-hop dalliances on her post-”Glitter” comeback single, ”Through the Rain.” A competent ballad in the ”Hero” tradition, ”Rain” feels tame, as if she’s overcompensating for recent insanities, personal and musical. ”Demure” isn’t a word we use often to describe Carey, but for once, a little less dignity is called for.
