SoundTable Discussion: This. This Is SoulBounce…Reviewing Mariah Carey’s New Album

Track 6: “Make It Look Good”

Butta: Who sequenced this album? How you go from turning up to this doo-wop-pop-pop (c) Tamar Braxton track?

D-Money: Maybe after Stevie Wonder did his harmonica cameo, they had him draw song titles out of a hat in a dark, soundproof booth. That’s the only way to explain this.

Butta: That makes the most sense because I can’t find any sense in this. Nonetheless, the song is rather lovely.

D-Money: Yeah, this is a standout. From the tight backgrounds to Stevie’s playing to the the hi-hats, I was feeling it.

Butta: Yo, that’s Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox on backgrounds with Mimi. They might need to start a duo for a side project.

D-Money: J.D. was singing on this? Butta, stop playin’.

Butta: Read the liner notes, man!

D-Money: *looks at liner notes and gags* Well, I’ll be damned.

Butta: This song makes me want to put on a poodle skirt and saddle shoes and slow drag with a honey dip in jeans, a white t-shirt and leather jacket.

D-Money: Yeah, this is that good sock hop slow dance music. But yet, they still allowed it to have a modern flair. Ain’t mad at this at all.

Butta: Exactly. It’s has a throwback sound without sounding tired like a lot of the songs that rode that recent wave.

D-Money: And it’s almost impossible for anything Stevie Wonder touches to be bad...emphasis on that almost though.

Butta: Let’s not bring Stevie’s hairline into this.

D-Money: *hollers*
