Review: Carly Rae Jepsen's Kiss

Carly Rae Jepsen has finally released her first international album, Kiss.  And let me tell you, it will kiss your ears with infectious beats and super fun lyrics!  Carly had help from super producer Max Martin and also Mariana’s Trench’s Josh Ramsay.  (Josh was the mastermind behind Call Me Maybe, taking it from folksy to number one.)  The songs are fun and the lyrics easy to learn with the overall result being pop heaven.  Carly’s voice sounds great on most tracks and her unique sound is able to stand out among what could have been “just another pop record”.  If you liked her previous acoustic sound, you will find none of that on Kiss.  I would have liked maybe one song to pay homage to her roots, but I also love that there aren’t any ballads on this album.  The only songs that slow it down a bit are Your Heart is a Muscle (with a beautiful piano melody) and her duet with Justin Bieber, What Makes You Beautiful

Everyone who I know that’s heard the album absolutely loves it.  I’ve had it pretty much on repeat for the past three days.  Carly is 26 and I think that sets her sound apart from other young pop stars.  Other tracks I like on this album are This Kiss, Tiny Little Bows and Tonight I’m Getting Over You.  If you’re looking for a fun, up-tempo album, this is definitely for you!
