Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.4/100, a mean average of 75.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.5.

Some tracks are pretty repetitive but overall good album.
Could use some deeper lyrics tho.

@Boltzmann - Sorry, but "your high rating is simply uneducated" is such an atrociously pretentious statement and a complete insult to this album. Implying that people who like it and have a differing opinion are somehow inferior to you and yours because you listened to Britney Spears beforehand.

For me, this isn't any normal record. This is a record that helped me really expand my musical horizons. It was the album that let me understand that pop music wasn't just generic radio schlock, that it could have feeling and (pun entirely intended) emotion. This is my FAVORITE album of all time. No matter how much death metal, art rock, neoclassical darkwave, or (yes, really) other pop records I listen to, THIS is the one I can always go back to. From the blaring, triumphant synth saxophone intro of "Run Away With Me" to the warm and uplifting chorus of "When I Needed You", this is a borderline airtight 12 tracks with zero filler.

Everything on this album hits. The production is warm and rich, letting each individual element of a song shine through with ease. The instrumentation is fun in every sense of the word, and the bass on this thing is an unsung hero with lots of funky lines throughout. Not to mention the colorful synth leads, wonderful layered vocal performances, electronic influences that sound Daft Punk-ish at times, rewarding pacing, etc. And of course, Carly herself is a fantastic vocalist, bringing each emotion she wants to portray in full force with her own quirks and style to make it her own. The lyricism isn't complex, but it works with what the song want to portray, and doesn't personally bother me, though I can understand criticism of it.

It's 44 minutes of pure, unbridled, romantic energy. Above all else, it's FUN. And I don't care that the fun I have listening to this is "uneducated".

The first 10 songs are sick and are pretty solid. It trails off after that. But on the deluxe, I didn’t just come here to dance is a great song too. I like her vocal performances.

@Pretender: Ooh, Tove Styrke is great indeed. Her first album mostly.

There's so much good bubblegum pop out there, no reason to focus on just one (which is not even close to the rest in terms of quality). Nowhere is herd mentality in humans clearer than on online forums about music. When everyone else is saying bubblegum pop "is good, actually", then suddenly everyone beats you dead with the same arguments you have used for years to defend pop music, and everyone who disagrees is just anti-pop and close-minded, even though that person listens to tons of more and cheesier pop music. So here some suggestions for people who listened to this album and thought "that's the stuff":

Tove Styrke - Tove Styrke
Kylie Minogue - Kiss Me Once (and much more)
Madonna - Like A Virgin (probably the cheesiest)
Perfume - Game (if you're okay with heavy auto-tune)
Britney Spears - Blackout
Little Boots - Hands
Ariana Grande - Yours Truly
Lady Gaga - The Fame (Monster)
Miley Cyrus - Bangerz
Fergie - The Dutchess
Nelly Furtado - Folklore

I could probably go on. Note that ALL OF THESE were made before E-Mo-Tion and all sound very alike (especially Kylie Minogue I think), so I don't care if you like this album - sure, I do too - but your high rating is simply uneducated, because this is the first and only time in your life that you could be bothered to take pop music seriously, because now for the first time everyone else is doing it.

It's a pop album. This couldn't be mistaken as anything else. As such, it relies on its collaborators and producers (which is an amazing list here) but is guided by the vision of Jepsen. Put this alongside any other release in the genre, forgetting the bias of nostalgia and any prejudice from sales or perceived popularity - this album stands proud amongst the giants of pop for the sounds on the record. That's what we're here for, isn't it?

Yeah, it's not "deep" in any way, shape or form, but it delivers tune after tune after tune. It's pretty much bangers front to back, and I don't really understand why some of these songs weren't huge hits. A great, fun pop album that I will definitely be coming back to whenever I need an easily digestible pick-me-up.

I also was amused by the fact that I didn't need to look at the credits to know Warm Blood was a Rostam production. It's the pitch shifting that gave it away, hehe.
