    mariah should look inside herself and stop trying to be a teenybop star. showing alittle emotional depth(even if theres some insanity down there)would be good for her down the road. shes as fake as her boobs.

    While the album may have its flaws, it is for the most part a successful period piece that clearly displays Carey's appreciation for all that has come before her.
  2. While Carey has never been a particularly confessional musician, Glitter seems a step in a more cathartic direction, from which subsequent albums should no doubt benefit.

    After years of trading her signature flourishes for a radio-ready purr, she's left with almost no presence at all. [Aug/Sep 2001, p.118]
