  1. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    "Love me like a sugar daddy, love me like a pimp Caddy," she pleads on the feather light Candy Bling. You can't help but do so

  2. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Carey's most sonically and tonally coherent release
    Read Review

  3. 6.0 |   The Independent

    It's all pretty much the same drum sounds, the same tempos, the same keyboard textures, fronted by the same downy vocal timbre expressing the same small range of emotions.

  4. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    A closing trilogy of ballads sends us crashing back to the Carey of old. Her robot alter-ego is more fun

  5. 6.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    Even at her most aggressive, Carey sounds like she might lick you to death

  9. 4.0 |   The Times

  10. 2.0 |   The Sunday Times

    Carey should take a long vacation; it isn’t as if she wouldn’t know where to go, or what to pack.

  11. 2.0 |   The Scotsman

    ""You're a mom and pop, I'm a corporation, I'm a press conference, you're a conversation,"" she trills with a little airbrushing from Auto-Tune. Take that, Shady!
