Review: Mariah Carey – Dreamlover (Pop)

This review covers the pop track Mariah Carey – Dreamlover.

This track was released in 1993 on the album Music Box.

The track starts with a chime melody. The vocals make a subtle appearance. From there, the drum kit comes in as the vocals take a bigger presence in the track.

After this, the vocals take the track into the first verse. Backup vocals make appearance. The vocals then take the track into the main chorus. The backup vocals take a bigger role at this stage. This section is capped off with some whistling.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse as a piano makes an appearance on a more subtle level. An organ also makes a brief appearance. After that, the vocals take the track into the next round of the main chorus. This is capped off with some organ piano work as well as some whistling.

The vocals then take the track into another round of the main chorus. After that, the backup vocals lead the track out.

My first impression is that this is a very unremarkable track. The vocals are pretty mediocre and the backing instruments don’t do a whole lot.

Probably the best part about the track are the backup vocals. They are a pretty decent element in the track. Unfortunately, this is about the only thing I can think of that is a positive aspect in this track.

Overall, this is a very mediocre track. The vocals and backing instrumentation just don’t do a whole lot to add to the track. The backup vocals do sound pretty decent, but that’s about the only thing that actually elevates this track. I tried to find anything else that is interesting, but there just isn’t anything else there. A very mediocre track.

Score
5.5/10
