Mariah no pariah


SHE'S been on a bit of a run of form of late, has Mariah Carey - Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel follows the ridiculously successful E=MC2 and The Emancipation Of Mimi, which between then spawned 10 hit singles.
So it's a cert to expect a few more pop R&B chart-troublers from this, her 12th studio effort.
However the surprise here is that these singles, such as ponderous lead release Obsessed, are among the weakest moments here.
Instead as the LP progresses Carey begins to let a welcome sense of humour creep into her polished pop product.
I must declare a disinterest and say it may not be my kettle of fish, but it's a pleasure to hear a star of Carey's maginitude, who must carry a huge weight of expectation, having so much fun with her art.
