    A wronged album. Once for all, its one of the most inteligent work of pop music. The Way Mariahs wanted to make the music match with movie is so fantastic. And finally the best dance album of her, differentiating her from boring singer of R&B Like Celine Dion.

    Besides the deadly mistake of this soundtrack be released precisely on the 11th of September, Mariah wrongdoing with the overflow of guests on your disk, end up leaving it as an guest to their own work. Mariah brings the your best 90s in "Lead the Way" and "Never Too Far", rescues the disco era on tracks like "Wanted You" and 1982 cover the Indeep group, "Last Night DJ Saved My Life".

    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]
