Editorial Reviews

Breakout pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen releases her eagerly anticipated U.S. debut album, entitled, Kiss, via 604 Records/Schoolboy Records/Interscope Records. The Canadian singer and songwriter wrote or co-wrote songs on the album, collaborating with songwriters and producers Max Martin, Dallas Austin, LMFAO's Redfoo, Toby Gad, Marianas Trench singer Josh Ramsay and Matthew Koma. Jepsen's single Good Time, a duet with Owl City, has climbed to No. 3 on the Pop Chart, No. 5 on the iTunes Singles chart, and No. 13 on Billboard's Hot 100, while the video, featuring Jepsen and Young, has racked up more than six million views on VEVO.

Recently, Jepsen hit the road with Justin Bieber as a very special guest on the multi-platinum Pop/R&B star's 2012 headlining tour of North America.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy It Maybe September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
With its unembarrassed set of slick pop confections, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Kiss" - her major label debut and second full-length - hearkens back to those Mandy Moore-Jessica Simpson days of the early 2000s.

Heavily padded with classy, agreeable filler - light on memorable hooks, heavy on high fructose corn syrup - "Kiss" is certainly frontloaded with its strongest tracks, none of which come close to the relentless appeal of summer 2012 chart blaster "Call Me Maybe." Still, listeners craving guilty pleasure pop have some lollipops to suck on until the next Britney or Kylie record.

Her breathy, professional performances almost make anonymous hi-BPM dance tunes such as "Turn Me Up" and "Hurt So Good" sound memorable. In fact, her cooing, confident vocals are consistently her biggest asset, turning even the album's weakest moments into boldly executed excurions which, in spite of themselves, are far from faceless.

"This Kiss" sounds like a hit from one of Britney's first records, complete with sugary, swirling, vanilla-coated beats - Jepsen makes it clear from the outset that this is music made for fun's sake, with no deep feelings in sight. The comparatively thoughtful "More Than a Memory," for instance, still surfs on dance floor-ready waves.

These tunes are designed purely to make listeners forget their troubles. "Tonight I'm Getting Over You," a pulsing slice of Eurodance, is the most exemplary:

"No more crying to get me through," she sings over the track. "I'll keep dancing 'til the morning with somebody new."

"Kiss" is a typical pop album with one very strong single, several other juicy tunes and many album tracks that are both listenable and rather unmemorable.

Format:Audio CD
"Call Me Maybe" is the highlight of Canadian Idol contestant Carly Rae Jepsen's U.S. debut Kiss. While successive singles "Good Time" featuring Owl City and "This Kiss" are solid, they are less impressive than the aforementioned juggernaut. Overall, Kiss is an average affair that suits is purpose as an album of `records' but nothing more. Some cuts are more distinct or notable than others, but most use the same blueprint, which underwrites Kiss as an entire entity.

"Tiny Little Bows," produced by Dallas Austin and Cory Enemy, yields a solid neo-disco sound. Catchy, the chorus highlights as Jepsen sings "How do you think it goes/with those tiny little bows/you're the one I want/you're the one I know/and everywhere you are/is a place I wanna go..." "This Kiss," produced by Redfoo (of LFMAO) and Matthew Koma, is slightly more distinct despite similarities to the opener. Sound proves more important than Jepsen's voice ultimately, with the chorus again being a highlight.

"This Kiss" certainly does not outperform "Call Me Maybe," which eclipses everything. Josh Ramsay produces/co-writes the `big-time hit' every artists wishes they could land. The refrain is easily memorable: "Hey just met you/and this is crazy/but here's my number/so call me maybe/it's hard to look right/at you baby/but here's my number/so call me maybe..." Locked into the neo-disco sound and confirmed by those lovely signature disco string swirls, "Call Me Maybe" is `larger than life'

"Curiosity" isn't incredibly distinct, particularly since it follows up the `queen' of the effort. The biggest flaw is an odd key change which isn't smooth in the least. While it is meant to intensify, it just comes off as clunky.

By noszero

I don't buy much music like this. I mostly listen to hard rock but this one had a catchy sound so I grabbed it. I'm not gonna go on and on here. If you like call me maybe then buy it. I liked all the songs and will bet you were gonna here a few on the radio because this girl is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am very happy with this album March 23, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
When I bought this album I already knew some of her work from owl city and other songs on the radio, but when I got the album i was a little afraid that it would not be a good exercise or work album, maybe even a little too bubble gum. I was happy to find that not only did it fit in well in every situation but also left be feeling better for having bought it. No cussing, makes this a good album for the whole family and the up beat nature of the album leaves you happy to leave it on repeat all day long.

This is a great album to have going in the background of a party or BBQ. Yes, after awhile the songs do sound the same but they're quite enjoyable

One of the all time best dance and feel good cd's I have ever bought! Enjoyed Carly more then all the other CD's I have bought of all the current stars that you get tired of hearing about! Wish more people could discover this music. Call Me Maybe is the reason I purchased it but the entire cd is just as great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid album March 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album shows that Carly has more to offer than a one-hit wonder. Kiss offers 16 strong tracks for more than the teen audience. The album is fun, well-produced, & the ultimate is super-pop music. Stand outs on the record include: Guitar String/Wedding Ring - a heartfelt mid-tempo song produced & co-written by the remarkable hit-maker Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench; Turn Me Up - a dance track co-written by Kevvy Mental of Fake Shark Real Zombie; & a Tonight I'm Getting Over You co-written by pop powerhouse Max Martin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Late '90s-early '00s Throwback Maybe?
'Kiss' (major label debut - 2nd album overall) is an underrated album from Carly Rae Jepson. Honestly, one of the most catchy albums I've heard in a while. Read more

You know the one hit from this one-hit wonder. The rest of the songs just annoyed me - trite lyrics, hollow production, and no melodic hook to speak of.
