It's gotten to the point that I've gotten so frayed by this. There's this constant tearing down of Carly Rae Jepsen's first album Kiss and this over the top praise for Emotion.
This blog hasn't accurately reflected how much I like Carly Rae Jepsen. I've mentioned Emotion once or twice in compilation posts of other albums to buy, but I've yet to sit down and tell you in six hundred words or less how much I like Carly Rae Jepsen.
I lived for this album. If I was blogging at this time I would have put Kiss as one of the best albums of 2012. This album came out the same week as P!NK's The Truth About Love. I know, because I had to choose which one to buy with allowance of $20 a month.
Kiss was just such a good album, but everyone over looked it because of how over they were “Call Me Maybe”. That was okay with me. I bopped to this album.
Kiss was a masterpiece. And, so is Emotion. But, there not even that different. It's not as if this a new Carly Rae Jepsen. It is not that. It's a vague update of the same eighties influenced pop she started out with. These albums are clearly by the same singer.
I'm just done with Kiss being torn apart. I love that album. I love every song on there. Maybe, not that duet with Justin Bieber. But, that album has a warm place in my heart. It's my baby.
I just need people to stop coming for Kiss and praising Emotion. These albums are gold and I'm sorry you missed out on it round one.
The funniest track to me is “La Hallucinations”. It's catchy. It's good, but it's about the media and all the lies they've said about her. I know she's famous. But, she's always been squeaky clean to me. Like I've never heard of her getting naked with some boy. Breathing on some bong. I guess she needed to address the haters, but I didn't even know this was a problem. If you're watching TMZ, then your not really looking for quality reporting.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, buy Kiss and Emotion. Complete your Carly Rae experience.
