The new Carly Rae Jepsen album is actually fantastic



I wasn't expecting to say this, but Carly Rae Jepsen's new album is one of the best pure pop albums of the decade. No, really, the whole thing is fucking great. No filler. There isn't a song that isn't perfectly executed and imbued with great vocals and personality. On top of that, it branches out into some very successful 80s revival sounds. It's like Call Me Maybe meets Haim meets Kaputt. Top notch production.

For me, it's right up there with 20/20 Experience Part 1, Beyonce's self-titled and The Fame Monster as one of those awesome pop records that I wasn't expecting to enjoy but wound up very surprised. Please buy it or listen to it on your streaming service of choice. Critics are really digging it too, 79 metascore right now.

A few of the great singles from it:

Gonna have to listen to this over the weekend. Run Away With Me is one of the best pop songs I've heard all year. Light years better than I Really Like You.

Had to think for a minute or so about who she is, and then I remembered.

Very glowing reviews.

I'll try it, maybe.

While saying that I enjoy every track on the album, and I'm very serious about that, I will also say that I Really Like You isn't terribly representative of the album and is one of the weaker tracks overall. It's like Call Me Maybe without the jubilant strings that put that song over the top for me.

Finally, I can be in style or something. I've been living in a cave (metaphorically) when it comes to music and listening to Stone Roses and the Smiths for a while

Wow that is super high praise. I feel like you are nearly talking just to me with your comparisons haha. I was thinking about listening to it because I enjoyed the first or second single, whatever it was, and even though you get the kudos here I am claiming the overall title as I think I posted it first

Yeah, you posted All That in RMT months ago. But it got Best New Track first.

Ha mentioning Kaputt is the perfect cobbler bait. It works for me as well.

Not sure if I've heard the new singles but Call Me Maybe is fantastic so I'll definitely give this a listen. Right now actually.

Damn, the album isn't on Google Music. I hate it when that happens.

It's free to listen on the browser version of Spotify. Just going to have a few ads along the way.
