    As a whole, the album offers a decent enough package; it's generic pop at it's simplest, and while it packs some excellent songs ("Run Away With Me" and "Gimmie Love") it also proves to have a fair number of dud's ("Let's Get Lost" and "Black Heart" as well as the title track) yet as an album it's something which I would happily listen to, albeit skipping a couple of tracks.

    She doesn’t do anything to stamp her identity on the songs: good as they are, you’re struck by the sense you could be listening to anyone. It’s one problem that all the expensive names in the credits can’t solve, a single glaring imperfection in an album of otherwise perfect pop.

    E MO TION is no fluke. It doesn’t grip you by the heels but instead lures you into a full-bodied embrace that is iron-clad, it’s simply up to you to give it the chance to do so.

    Emotion succeeds on its own terms, arguably remaining truer to the spirit of the era, not to mention Jepsen’s stated aim of taking the time to craft an album rather than rushing to cash in on a YouTube sensation.
