Remember when Mariah Carey was THE vocal star of the world, well, with the release of “The Star,” we see her legend slip further and further.
It’s no secret that Carey isn’t the vocal powerhouse that she once was, you only have to YouTube recent performances or last years New Year’s Eve show to see that, but her recent ballad, “The Star,” makes this more evident than ever before.
Her ballads are the stuff of legend, you can listen to “Hero” or “Vision Of Love” and still be amazed by her vocal prowess – and now we just get this middle of the road ballad.
To be fair to her, the vocal isn’t terrible, it’s just not Carey vocal that we have become accustomed to, but other than that, the song is shit – least it’s not her single, just the title track to an upcoming soundtrack.
Even the power notes her lack enthusiasm and power, maybe it’s time for Carey to hang up her singing boots – unless she has another “We Belong Together,” “It’s Like That” or “All I Want For Christmas.”
