Background and production

In early 2009, singer-songwriter The-Dream stated that he and Carey had already begun working on her next studio album: "I think it's about just writing an album that includes the focus of all the hits that she's had. She can't take a loss; she has to do everything to the T. So it's basically like we're trying to make a greatest hits album without using the greatest hits".[2]

In May, Carey revealed that she was calling the album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel because it was going to be "very personal and dedicated to the fans".[3] She says that the reason she chose to use three images for the cover art is because "there are a lot of different emotions and stories revealed on this album".[4] Carey also stated that she loves "the whole album" and she's "completely immersed in it".[5] On June 16, Carey said on Twitter that there will be "big ballads" on the album.[6] Carey also said that she "tried to make something for all who love Butterfly, and even older albums".[7][8][9] For the first time in her career, Carey worked with American Grammy Award-winning hip-hop and R&B record-producer Timbaland. They worked on a number of tracks, and although well-documented, none of them made it onto Memoirs. The reasons for which are unspecified. Another song called "Imperfect" written by Carey, dealing with societal pressure on women to "be perfect and look a certain way", also failed to make the track listing.[10] In an interview with BET, Carey said that she also worked with Jermaine Dupri,[11] however, none of his songs made the final track listing. Despite the majority of the project being written and produced by Carey, Tricky Stewart and The-Dream, the main goal was to avoid having a "redundant or stale" album.[10] In an interview with Elle Carey described the sound of her new album: "Each song is its own snapshot of a moment in a story. But overall, the vibe is R&B hip-hop with a lot of slow jams. [...] Each song has its own mood; some flow seamlessly into each other, and that was the purpose, and others are very different. The album has a sense of humor, [you can hear me laughing out loud at certain points], but it also has deep and introspective moments."[12]

Concept and packaging

During an interview with music retailer Amazon.com, Carey revealed her inspiration and motivation for the album. "Each song tells its own story. Each one is like an intimate conversation or entry in a private diary. A lot of the songs reflect specific, different times in my life, actual events that happened to me, some of which are from way back in the past. Others were inspired by movies or from a friend of mine that may have told me their story.[10] People can listen to it and pick out certain songs that mean something to them - women especially. It's about women's empowerment and overcoming certain things. It's fun too though. It's got a little bit of something for everybody".[11]

Amazon.com revealed that the physical release of the album would come as a 3-panel softpack as opposed to the usual plastic CD casing. This was due to the inclusion of two discs, the first housed the album itself whilst the second housed an enhanced CD featuring the music video for lead single "Obsessed" as well as the video for "Obsessed" (official remix featuring Gucci Mane) and three other remixes. The packaging includes a 34-page Elle mini-magazine which takes an exclusive in-depth look at Carey's life and career.[10] The mini-magazine is mixed in with lyrics and other traditional liner-note materials as well as upscale ads to cut the production costs of the booklet. The ad-supported booklets — available in a digital format for downloaders — appeared in the first 1 million U.S. copies of the CD and the first 500,000 overseas.[13]

It was also revealed that a limited edition collectors' version of the album would be released on October 20, 2009.

Marketing and promotion

Carey first made a promotional appearance on August 2, 2009 on Americas Got Talent, where she taped her performance of "Obsessed". The episode aired on August 5, 2009. The album was initially pushed back from August 25 to September 15 so that more recording in the studio could take place but it was then revealed that the album was to be pushed back once more to September 29, 2009, with all promotion being delayed so that Carey can put finishing touches on the album.[15] As per most releases, the album was released several days earlier in international territories/markets. Since then the UK release was pushed back from 24 August, to September 14, to October 5 and finally to November 16. British newspaper The Daily Mirror, got a preview of six tracks on the album, these being "Obsessed", "Standing O", "Candy Bling", "H.A.T.E.U." (which stands for "Having A Typical Emotional Upset"),[16] "Impossible" and a cover of Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is".[17] Media playbacks of these six tracks were held in Tokyo, Hong Kong, London and Berlin in August 2009.[18]

Then in September Carey began performing at her Live At the Pearl concerts in Las Vegas on September 10 and September 11, where she sang several of her famous hits, the first two singles from Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, "Obsessed" and "I Want to Know What Love Is" and premiering two other songs from the album, "Angels Cry" and "Up Out My Face". These were followed by appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show on September 18, where Carey gave an interview with husband Nick Cannon and sang "I Want to Know What Love Is". On October 5, Carey performed a concert for select contest winners at the P.C. Richard Theater in TriBeCa, New York where she sang "Obsessed", "H.A.T.E.U.", and "I Want to Know What Love Is" from the album. Also, she sang "Always Be My Baby" and "We Belong Together".[19] Carey resumed her Las Vegas shows at Live At the Pearl concerts on October 9 and October 10, this time changing the setlist and performing songs which she has either not sang live this millennium or debuting live performances of songs from previous albums. Carey also sang "H.A.T.E.U.", in order to promote it as her third single, in addition to "Obsessed" and "I Want To Know What Love Is".

Angels Advocate

Following the announcement of the Angels Advocate Tour and special plans for the left over songs from the recording sessions of Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, Tricky Stewart revealed to Rap Up magazine that there were plans for a remix album to be titled Angels Advocate. The album would include a Tricky Stewart remix of "I Want to Know What Love Is" as well as the remix to "Obsessed" which features Gucci Mane and a remix of "Inseparable" featuring Trey Songz.[24] Jermaine Dupri was one of several new producers for the project and helmed the remix of "H.A.T.E.U." which samples Ghost Town DJs' "My Boo" and features rap verses from Big Boi (of Outkast), Gucci Mane, and OJ da Juiceman. It was first time since 2006's So So Def remix to "Say Somethin'" that Carey has recorded new vocals for a remix.[25] New versions of the songs "Betcha Gon' Know (The Prologue)"[26] and "Candy Bling" respectively featured R. Kelly and T-Pain. The latter also sampled a sped-up melody from Jamie Foxx's "Blame It".[27]

The purpose of the album was about ensuring that Memoirs appealed to more people by putting guests on 90% of the songs.[26] Carey was also planning to collaborate with Westlife which would have been exclusive to the UK version of the album and a future single release.[28] Throughout the development of the project Carey regularly updated fans through her Twitter account. She stated that there were several previously unreleased tracks from Memoirs that would appear on the project including one Dupri song and several Timbaland songs.[29] Swizz Beatz was also linked to several productions for the project[30] whilst Yahoo! music linked Snoop Dogg and Fabolous to remixes.[31] Finally a press release also confirmed contributions from Mary J. Blige ("Its a Wrap"), The-Dream and Ludacris ("Ribbon"),[32] Akon, K-Ci & Jojo.[33] It was confirmed that the missing Dupri track was actually "100%" which was recorded for the movie Precious but then released from the AT&T U.S. Winter Olympics soundtrack to raise money for the U.S. Olympics Team.[34]

Angels Advocate had been confirmed for release on March 29, 2010 in Poland[35][36] and the Philippines,[37] March 30 in the United States,[33] March 31 in Japan as both a deluxe and standard edition,[38] and in the UK on April 26, 2010.[39] Had it been released it would have been Carey's thirteenth studio album following Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel (2009) and second remix album following The Remixes (2003). However Rap-Up magazine, HMV Japan,[38] and Carey's manager Chris Lighty all confirmed the album's cancellation.[40][41] It had been slated as an exclusive iTunes Store and Target release in the U.S. before cancellation. The "MC vs JS" album, which was scheduled for release around the same time,[42] was also subsequently cancelled. Following the cancellation of both remix albums, it was announced that Carey will turn her attention to recording a new full length thirteenth studio album from scratch which will feature production from Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox.[43][44]

The album has received generally favorable reviews from music critics. According to the music review aggregater Metacritic, it has received an average score of 69/100 indicating generally favorable reviews, higher than her previous albums The Emancipation of Mimi and E=MC2.[71][72] Allmusic gave the album three and a half stars (out of five) and called it "her most interesting album in a decade", commenting that "Even if it doesn't smack of the confessional autobiography of the title, there's no denying that Memoirs is an album, not a collection of tracks, possessing its own flow and mood, which gives it a personality the slightly desperate E=MC2 lacked" though "it never manages to kick out a song that is all that distinctive on its own terms". Another issue pointed out was that the album lacks "the pandering, heavy-handed sexuality Mariah has relied upon too heavily this decade — and in doing so, it feels age appropriate in a way she hasn't in a long time, despite a collection of silly, jumbled lyrics".[73] The A.V. Club also gave the album a positive review with a grade of B-, commenting, "Their team-up with Carey is canny: Stewart and Nash loosen up the diva’s sometimes overblown on-record persona, and in return she gives definition to some of their more meandering tunes and backdrops. Memoirs is Carey’s least pyrotechnic album, its flow is as important as its tunes, and while Carey is still given to acrobatic vocal displays, her lattice of subtler vocal overdubs softens and strengthens those flights."[74]

A mixed review came from Slant Magazine, in which music critic Sal Cinquemani called the album "one of her most sonically consistent". However, finding the album "soulless", he noted that the aural similarity of the tracks led to the production sounding "cheap and same-y, lacking the fullness of her best work". He continues, "Mariah is in fine voice throughout the album, and there are plenty of inspired moments to be found... Which makes it all the more disappointing that the album's final stretch devolves into a mess of old-school Mariah rehashes that should have been left in the past."[75] Entertainment Weekly music critic Leah Greenblatt gave Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel a B, noting that the album neither impresses nor disappoints, but is merely satisfactory: "imperfections are nowhere to be found on Memoirs, but neither are many true revelations."[76]

Jon Caramanica from The New York Times gave the album a mixed review, writing that the album "manages simplicity and clutter all at once". Caramanica also criticized Carey's vocal performances, decrying her overuse of her softer vocal registers at the expense of her more powerful lower and mid registers: "When exactly did Mariah Carey stop singing? Even when she began flirting aggressively with hip-hop in the mid-1990s she was happy to impose her titanic vocals atop even the scrappiest production... Of late though, Ms. Carey has been whispering, as if newly scared of grand gestures."[77] A positive review came from Billboard music critic Mariel Concepcion, who wrote that "Mariah Carey is not only revisiting her past appearance-wise, but she's also taking her sound back to her R&B roots...Overall, Carey's throwback vibe on "Memoirs" is refreshing and much welcomed."[78]
