Album Review

Pro-Social Content

“I’ve Been Thinking About You” describes falling in love with a long-time platonic friend. The title track thanks a lover for his faithful support in hard times (“When I am low you wash away my tears and take me through the loneliness and emptiness”). Carey seeks and pledges lasting devotion to her man on “All I’ve Ever Wanted” and “Never Forget You.”

Objectionable Content

Some lyrical ambiguity leaves it up to the listener to determine the relational context of several love songs.

Summary Advisory

Carey’s soulful vocals are the best in the business. Gladly, she uses them to enhance predominantly positive messages on Music Box.
