The Emancipation of Craptacular Music

Mariah Carey's latest offering of over-produced musical pablum, The Emancipation of Mimi, knocked Audioslave out of Billboard's number 1 spot. This injustice proves yet again that most people don't have a freakin' clue when it comes to decent music:
Still, on ballads like "Mine Again," she wails notes that don't need emphasizing, then whispers what would ordinarily be climactic phrases, and the outcome doesn't make emotional or musical sense - Rolling Stone

So even with the help of some serious talent (Neptunes, Kanye West) the album is considered mediocre, at BEST. Oh and Mariah, lay off the industrial tan in a tube, you look slightly nuclear.
