"Equipian"

..Equipment for Life.. since 2005.. Welcome to Equipian, our previews, views and reviews! enjoy!

What should be in your ipod this week? (vol.1)

Every Friday, I'll try and recommend something to put into your ipod for the weekend. [equipnote]

I'll start off this week with Mariah Carey's all new album "The Emancipation of Mimi". The word Emancipation, in case anybody who doesn't know what it means, means "to free from restraint, control, any controlling influence, to give equal rights to; of women and minorities etc." Mariah made sure that you know the meaning of this word before listening to the album by putting the dictionary definition on the inside cover. So what has this "Emancipation" done to Mariah? It has turned her into Beyonce! The first look at the attractive album cover will definitely remind you a lot about Beyonce. It tells you that this is not the same Mariah that released the last album :"Charmbracelet" which failed to revive her career.

Going through the tracks, you'll find that the sound of this album is quite heavy yet it has an attractive retro and chill-out ring to it. The songs all follow the same heavy mid tempo beat template with rappers featuring here and there. Mariah's vocal is a lot more tame than some of her past materials, with less unnecessary "over adlibs" which make it's a lot more comfortable to listen to.

This album is definitely NOT the best new release in town but it has a certain coolness to it and all your friends will want to listen to it. For those of you who are looking for another "Without You" or "Hero" can look elsewhere, but this is definitely modern R&B pop at it's best and it's for sure something to put in your ipod.
