E·MO·TION by Carly Rae Jepsen
The music, too, is hell-bent on that joy-rush, no matter what. These songs are absolutely overstuffed with hooks and flourishes and whizjets. Listening to the album, in the wrong mood, can be as exhausting as actual emotion. But those packed, jumpy arrangements, when they hit you right, can feel like a ray of sunshine piercing right through your soul.
This record is pop magic.
