Dando continuidade a discografia da Mariah Carey, realmente ter deixado este álbum como um dos últimos para ouvir foi uma EXCELENTE estratégia, este álbum é um outro degrau da carreira da Mariah Carrey, “Butterfly” é um álbum amplo, denso, com melodias extravagantes, um leque de opções, para compreender este álbum o ouvinte deve ter já uma boa base, para enfim chegar a conclusão que ele é um ... read more
