ALBUM REVIEW: ‘E•MO•TION’ by Carly Rae Jepsen- A Pop Album That Falls Short

When I first heard Carly Rae Jepsen was putting out a new album, I went into shock; I thought that she was a one-hit wonder who disappeared off the planet.

I only knew her from “Call Me Maybe”, which hurts me. The lyrics are bad, the track is bad, everything is bad. The only good thing about it is that the guy is gay at the end of the music video, which made me laugh so hard.

E•MO•TION is the third album from Carly Rae Jepsen, a Canadian singer and songwriter. She reached fame when her single “Call Me Maybe”, which reached number one in eighteen countries.

So, “E•MO•TION”  is apparently inspired by 80’s pop, and she worked hard on it. Over 250 songs were composed, and she pushed the album release date so she could work on quality. It was met with positive acclaim.

Jepsen’s aim is to make an album that captures people, makes people know that she’s still around, and for us to learn more about her. And we don’t find out anything new.

The album in itself is a good album for its genre. It’s fairly spotless, and her lyrics are okay too. However, it doesn’t do it for me.

Firstly, it doesn’t give me a reason to want to wait for her new single or album. It doesn’t make me interested in her, so it fails its goal.

Secondly, it’s not my type of album. I’m not a big fan of the pop genre and the things that come out of it aren’t the best. I mean, I can see how people can like it, but it’s not for me.

I suggest you have a listen. You might like it, you might not. But I didn’t, and that’s my taste, not yours.

Give The Flak Rating: Negative, 4.5/10
