    God I love Everything He Needs *so* much. That late 80s vibe pop R&B mid-tempo bawp. Tom Tom Club been left shaking.

  2. First time I played the album I heard it and thought it was dreadful. But now, it's my absolute favourite. A bop and a half.

    I love the side of the album that moves her sound on from bubblegum synths of Side B and more...I wanna say “80s R&B” but it’s not quite that. It’s more akin to the sound of Let’s Get Lost.

    Everything He Needs, Want You In My Room, Automatically In Love, Right Place Wrong Time and Feels Right definitely feel like they belong on a slightly different album to Party For One, Now That I Found You etc which feel more faithful to the Emotion sound.

  4. This awkward dd.

  5. "Automatically in Love" is particularly noteworthy. That Carly-fied Mariah bop.

  6. Listening to Carly geek out over a record I enjoyed so much in my early 20s made me happy. I love listening to her talk about music. She is so genuinely excited about it.

  7. Everything He Needs was my favourite from the second I heard that intro. Goosebumps. The "burned out streetlight" part is one of my favourite things she's ever done.

  10. Wow, Let's Be Friends is actually way better than I was expecting. It would definitely be top 3 on Dedicated.
  11. The mastering is a mess but I’m not understanding the disdain for Let’s Be Friends. I would rank it higher than most of what’s on Dedicated.
  12. Automatically in Love rivals just about anything from EMOTION for me. The romanticism of it all.

  13. Just bought a ticket for her Berlin gig. Yay. Anyone else from here who will be there?
  14. What time is she normally due on stage for the European tour? Going tonight in Cologne

  15. Was the LQ mastering of Let’s Be Friend intended to make it sound like a 2007 96kbps leak?

  19. Okay, no. It's great and some people have done too much here, but this is also doing too much because every song on Dedicated is either equal to or better then this.
  20. She was an absolute joy in Cologne tonight. Disappointed by the set being cut down though. I imagine it was due to her voice, or maybe due to the audience who mostly seemed incredibly disinterested. I don't know how tbh.
