About this album

Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel is the twelfth studio album by Mariah Carey and it was released on September 29 2009. She has written all the tracks on the album (except “I Want To Know What Love Is”) and co-produced them with The-Dream and Tricky Stewart. Inspiration for the songs are some times of her life, things that happened to her or to friends. The project is the most personal and is really dedicated to fans. She tries to conclude all her musical styles in just one album. Maybe this is the reason that it didn’t go well in the sales. It is her least commercial album by now.

On the other hand MOAIA is the album with the most favorable reviews from music critics. They appreciated the fact that music flows costantly and that she is not so stressed to show off her voice, since it is the first album she is whispering so many times.

    This album has some of her best ballads. Angels Cry, H.A.T.E.U., IWTKWLI...

    Seriously, one of my favorite Mariah albums. I'd say its her most interesting album in terms of production and flow. It's a sonic masterpiece.

    This album is definitely a grower, which is perhaps why it didn't perform so well on the charts. At first I didn't like it very much, but after listening to it for a while, it's clear that there are many great tracks. It's such a throwback r&b album and has a great chill-out vibe. Songs like The Impossible, Betcha Gon' Know and Candy Bling are standouts for me. I still think there's too much whispery vocals, but it's a great album overall. [2]

    Mariah gets a pass because she KNOWS she's camp.

    Mariah giving R. Kelly a run for his money in the cringeworthy lyrics category.

    I have a feeling there are two or three outtakes that would have potentially brought this album to the next level...

    Mariah tem álbuns unanimes, nenhum deles é melhor do que o outro, eles são todo topos gigantescos e ela consegue sempre superar a minima dificuldade que teve no anterior, até mesmo transforma essa dificuldade em uma qualidade. Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel é a prova disso, ela conseguiu transformar as dificuldades do E=MC² em qualidades. E acho que se ela lançasse o Angels Advocate, Memoirs teria flopado mais ainda, grazadeus ela não lançou...

    I admit I didn't like this when it first came out but now its one of my favourite albums from her. Her vocals are strong on all tracks.

    No other album displays Mariah's personality as much as this one.
