AllMusic Review by

From the back cover of this budget compilation: “Mariah Carey was the first recording artist to have her first five singles top the U.S. Billboard Top 100 chart.” A disc with a definitive title like The Collection -- one featuring a statement such as that on the packaging -- should contain those five songs. But it contains none of them. Instead, The Collection is a random assortment of low-rung singles and album cuts. Nobody needs it.
