Mariah Carey’s collection of unused hidden gems is a complete delight for her #Lambs. Covering almost all of her eras of her music and released as part of her #MC30 campaign celebrating 30 years in the business.
As on her albums, she had a hand in writing and producing most of the songs here, and despite being culled from across three decades, “Rarities” is a testament to her consistency as an artist. Unlike many of the pop queens that followed her up the charts, she can craft a hit without a cast of millions — most of the songs here are credited to her and just one other collaborator — and even as she switches up her emphasis from crossover pop to hip hop to adult soul, there’s a common thread of Mariah-ness running through everything.Variety
