Is it serious?? It only can be some kind of joke. This album is rated higher than a lot of classic pop albums, even higher than some of the Michael Jackson's and Madonna's greatest albums. If Emotion had been a huge hit, it would probably have received a low rate, this is how BEA members judge pop albums quality. I only heard the first three tracks. The first two songs are the best rated here, but I think they are just accessible (6/10). "I really like you" is also accessible (6/10) but it has an annoying chorus, that's when I gave up listening to the whole album.

I love the album, but its obvious this wouldn't be this highly rated if it was a mainstream hit. Its just cooler to like this album than, say, 1989.. which is a decidedly much better album.

I mean, I don't think anyone is going to argue Carly Rae Jepsen's importance. But sometimes, an album, like this one, is just really damn good.

Why does THIS get so much love? I mean I would be the last to say that pop is a lesser genre, but Carly is not really the most important figure in the genre. Taylor, Britney, Kylie don’t even reach the 70/100, this album even has a higher rating than any Madonna album. You guys think this is even remotely comparable with anything what Madonna made??? xD

Is it because some critic at Time thought it was neat? Or any critic for that matter? Do you really need that before you realize pop music is not necessarily bad and it just has a bad reputation? And what’s the deal with the critics themselves too? Is it just because Carly sounds like an obedient school girl who listens to her daddy when he tells her not to fuck around and polygamy is a sin? Her lyrics only screams that she has an unhealthy obsession with some guy. And I think it’s great that she’s honest about her feelings how ugly and manipulative they might be, but why is it suddenly a bad thing when Madonna is honest about her sex life, or when Nicki is honest about how her ass drives the men crazy?

I just don’t get it.

It's kind of sad that CRJ has fallen somewhat out of the public eye considering how great of a pop album this is. Catchy beyond belief and something everybody should at least give a try.

I didn't want to give this a chance until I saw it in Time's best albums of 2015. I wish I hadn't been so resistant. It is fun, harmless and creative pop. You can't be mad at it

Wow, just wow. It's so catchy it's hard to believe it didn't sell millions, so well written I can't believe it sold as much as it did. Great modern retro pop music.

@babyBlueSedan believe it or not, slick production, fun bouncy sensibilities, funky basslines and engrossing synths amongst gorgeous pop melodies appeal to some people. But, hey, we're just trying to be "edgy" by proclaiming our love for Carly Rae Jepsen pfft.

Fun, catchy, sweet and completely harmless, with everything it implies. Not deep, not enduring, not unforgettable. Just fine for the moment and admittedly entertaining, but there's no emotional impact at all. What I don't get is why this particular album has been so acclaimed within the framework of contemporary mainstream dance-pop music. I would dare to say that Taylor Swift's lyrics on "1989" are better written and Lady Gaga's "The fame monster" is bolder and weirder (again, for a pop album). I include "Emotion" with the aforementioned records in the same category: Pop albums that are at least mildly interesting for some reason and work better than your usual mainstream stuff, but that's about it.

Having said that, I must admit that I usually find myself coming back to these kind of albums once or twice before forgetting them completely, for one reason or another. In this particular case, I'm mainly enjoying "Emotion"'s explosive, lush production and catchy melodies and doing my best to ignore the bland lyricism.
