    Glad we don't have to wait too long for this. Hopefully that means they won't be releasing the album in Japan long before everywhere else this time around.

    I hope Carly builds on the songwriting style of EMOTION and explores some new sonics on the album. The singles feel like a re-tread of what we've gotten before, but with lyrics that seem a bit more one-dimensional.

    If the three singles were anything to go by, then this may end up as one of the bigger disappointments this year. All of them were weaker than most of the "Emotion" and "Emotion B-Side" stuff. Fingers crossed there are some real bangers on there.

    Still excited, mid May is much sooner than I expected!

    Maybe Carly released the worst songs to lower everyone’s expectations but the album will still be amazing (I hope lmao)!

    I hope she steps up her game and comes out with better songs than the three singles so far. I like them, but they're not on par with her previous material.

    I actually like her last three album titles:

    Kiss
    Emotion
    Dedicated

    Simple but still strong

    I'm surprised at the lukewarm reception to the singles as I think they are quite good! They are not really that different to her former songs in terms of quality to my ears. I'm sure she will have some pearls on the album as she usually does.

    That would be a better back cover picture I think.

    Agree with the general opinion here. She needs more slap for the album. The singles were just ok.

    Apparently, these are the other songs that will be on the album:

    Automatically In Love - 3:33
    Happy Not Knowing - 2:41
    Feels Right - 2:43
    Everything He Needs - 3:38
    Right Words Wrong Time - 3:20
    Julien - 3:54
    I'll be Your Girl - 2:58
    For Sure - 3:04
    Real Love - 3:54
    The Sound - 2:51
    Too Much - 3:17
    Want You In My Room - 2:46

    However, the pre-order was taken down from all streaming services yesterday. I hope the album doesn't get pushed back or canceled.

    I'm a bit sceptic when I see a pop album with 12 tracks and all below 4 minutes. Usually not a sign for awesome quality... 'Run Away With Me' is one of the best pop songs of the past few years and I would love to see her release another song in that league again.

    With streaming expect all songs to be shorter in future. Shorter songs means you can get a bigger number of streams in repeat listens. That's a trend lately.

    Im very unexcited for this era. I hope that once it arrives Im pleasantly surprised but so far everything she has released off it seems lacklustre.

    The album is good but definitely no "Emotion". If she wouldn't have released some brilliant pop tunes in the past, I'd probably enjoy this a lot more, but that way I'm actually slightly disappointed.

    I like the album. I was worried it was going to be an Emotion re-hash, but it’s definitely a different vibe and there are some really good songs. I would say it lacks the highs and song-craft of Emotion though

    This is quite instant, but from what I’ve heard so far I’d say Julien is my favourite.

    I’m positively surprised, the album is really good. “Everything He Needs” is among her career highlights imo.
