Mediocre MY ASS, this is just a perfect collection of sweet, catchy, early 2010's pop music. And aside from the egregious fact that Jusin Bieber is on this album, it actually really slaps. It's not really a revolutionary piece of pop or anything, but it's not trying to be.

Also, it's cute. It's really cute. Carly's voice is cute, the lyrics are cute, Carly herself is cute. It's a cute record. But not like a pitiful cute, it's more like a "this album is cute as hell and I love it" ... read more


Though Kiss feels disjointed at moments, it’s undoubtedly a good album and better than it’s predecessor. Plus, it has Call Me Maybe.


im kissing all sense of sanity goodbye bit by bit


While showing promise of her future greatness, "Kiss" is a charming if pretty average pop album, complete with mega-hit ("Call Me Maybe"), massively underrated banger ("Tonight I'm Getting Over You"), terrible acoustic cut ("Beautiful") and the world's most awkward key change ("Curiosity").

Favourites: Tonight I'm Getting Over You, Call Me Maybe, Good Time, Tiny Little Bows
Least Favourites: Beautiful


A formulaic bubblegum pop record that tries too hard to make every song sound like a hit. The first 5 songs absolutely slap tho
