Usually, I tend to listen to every new Mariah record a lot when it's fresh, but my love for it wanes over time. Or in E=MC²'s case pretty quickly. Sure, I might play a couple of tracks but the whole thing beginning to end not so frequently.
However, that's not the case with MIAM. I noticed that since its release I still listen to this album regularly and, if not top to bottom, usually only skipping one or two songs tops; in fact, since its release three years ago, it has barely left my weekly top 10 most listened to albums (per last.fm).
I still love this record so so much. It's definitely a Mariah Carey classic in my book, I can safely say by now. There are so many terrific songs (#B, "Cry." YDKWTD, "Meteorite," "Dedicated," "Make It Look Good," "Faded," "You're Mine," "Supernatural") that I consider stone cold gems. As a collection of songs it's definitely stronger than E=MC² and Memoirs for me, and even better than TEOM as well as Charmbracelet. And Rainbow and Glitter. Up there with Butterfly I'd say. I just stan for this record!!
Do you still love MIAM? I remember us all, well the majority, raving about it and being so content with what Mariah had put together and released after such a long wait. I'm asking because it's her last album for the time being and your feelings might have changed since 2014...
