Shhh...Because She Will "Hunt You Down..."

Dear Holy Diva,

I know you must be pretty hot right now. (and I'm not referring to your physical appearance at the moment, nor your current possible geographic location.) Your album, E=MC² has leaked in entirety online, and has spread quicker than wildfire.

I've listened to the album thoroughly a few times, and I will honestly say that I'm pleased for the most part. The studio version of "Migrate" is just as blazing as I thought it would be, and there are a few more songs that truly captured me with their seemingly instant hit appeal. However, I do feel like the overall feel of the album is quite static, and I truly wish there were more tried and true uplifting/emotional tracks. (i.e. "Fly Like a Bird," "Mine Again") than "I Wish You Well." Not saying that songs like "Bye Bye," and "I Stay In Love" aren't emotional songs; quite the contrary, they are. I just honestly wish that these and the other emotionally-tinged songs didn't sound like a variation or remix of "Don't Forget About Us."

Even with the aforementioned disappointment, I still love the album, as it is extremely listenable from beginning to end. Here are my current favorites from E=MC²: (no particular order)


"Touch My Body"
(I still stick by my words, but damn it, the song is addicting at the moment)

"Cruise Control"

"I Stay In Love"

"Love Story"

"I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time"

"Thanx 4 Nothin' "

"For the Record"

"Bye Bye"

That's over half of the album. Well done Diva.



P.S. I thought about posting my usual listen only music format to accompany this composition, but I'm not even chancing it because I know that you, Miss Carey, would have my sh*t deleted in a diva snap.
