So I am sure I have already apologized for having a sweet tooth. I like sugary pop and anything with a sweet innocent sensibility usually stands a better chance of grabbing my attention vs some of the darker more metallic sounds I also enjoy.
So my turn around surprise favorite new album of 2015 was Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion album. I loved everything about it. It is so sweet and pure it is almost divine in its implementation. From the first track on the album “Run Away With me” listen for a earnest plea from one of pops cutest young hipster to get lost in her own voice and drown out the night with a sweet sax/synth line combo. It is great. The first single to come out of the album “I really like you” is also great. The hook is so innocent it is a wonder to believe Carly has ever been in a real relationship yet the song is so careful and modest I wonder if she doesn’t know exactly what shes saying and so is modulating her expectations maturely and precisely. reportedly twenty songs cut from two hundred written Carly has a song writing credit on every song on the album, and even though there is a smorgasbord of pop music talent behind the album Carly’s unique voice and ethos remains present throughout the length of this delight.
