    A neat album of only 10 tracks. We find her in life-admin mode, clearing out any dispensable trash that she no longer has time or the inclination for. ... Sublime.

    On her 15th studio album, the breezy, pleasingly defiant Caution, she finds a freshness that’s been missing from her recent material.

    With tracks produced by Timbaland, Skrillex and DJ Mustard, Carey duly pays homage to the sounds prevalent at different stages of her career whilst remaining fresh and contemporary.

    No songs are highly energized, but Carey sounds like she's deriving joy from each one.

    On Caution, she is still doing it better than most of her students, and sounds more comfortable than she has in quite a while.

    She’ll employ of-the-moment producers to add current touches to her tracks, but the way she uses them on Caution results in her fine-tuning her aesthetic, not bending to current playlist-friendly trends.

    Previously, Mariah Carey has made it clear that she’s been through too much to care what anyone else thinks, shrugging off critics and denying all drama. On Caution, Carey has channeled that energy into the music itself.

    Given that this is a "romantic" album, it is clear how the singer managed to prepare the ground well and develop great ballads to compose theGiven that this is a "romantic" album, it is clear how the singer managed to prepare the ground well and develop great ballads to compose the tracklist. R&B is a very powerful weapon in the hands of Mariah, who brings us sensual songs, but at the same time super light, with beautiful messages from behind. It is precisely when she restricts this number of partners that Carey delivers to the audience some of her best compositions. Sentimental and poetic fragments in which the singer's voice gains strength and grows, pointing to a still recent past in her own career. Expand
