Carly Rae Jepsen – The Loneliest Time Album Review
Carly Rae Jepsen – The Loneliest Time (Album) Review. For years, Carly Rae Jepsen has honed her talent for creating the most relevant and ideal pop tunes.
She is the queen of crafting songs that express both ecstatic longing and the pain of a broken heart, and she never holds back in expressing all in her music.
Even when she deals with heartbreak, her songs brim with self-awareness and wide-eyed optimism; she celebrates self-love just as much as romantic love.
Carly’s music shares a theme of experiencing too much all at once. But on her most recent album, “The Loneliest Time,” the Canadian singer strips back various layers of her style, drawing inspiration from her predecessors Stevie Nicks and Cyndi Lauper, and she puts the emphasis on herself.

Although the soundscapes on “The Loneliest Time” aren’t as opulent or sweet-toothed as we’re used to from her, the sensations are nevertheless intense.
Carly’s album “The Loneliest Time” is unquestionably her most personal work to date because it focuses on her own concerns and security rather than her relationships with the past and the present. It serves as a reminder that being alone is acceptable and does not equate to loneliness.
The opening track on the album is the synth-pop fervor of “Surrender,” and it’s all classic Carly. But the singer isn’t interested in pigeonholing herself into a particular style of music or even a particular decade.
There’s the campy, absurdist, funk-inspired “Beach House,” which is an ode to the horrors of online dating; the subdued “Western Wind”; the electropop of “Bends”; the grooviness of “So Nice”; and the calming “Title Track,” which features a guest appearance from Ruf
The song examines the various facets of loneliness and its various connotations. While creating the album and residing in LA at the height of the pandemic, Carly was dealing with the loss of her grandmother as well as emotions of homesickness.
There are various types of loneliness, including the kind that makes you feel as though you want to be near someone even when you’re with them.
Being alone is difficult, and writing about it is even more difficult. But Carly demonstrates that it’s very acceptable to occasionally feel a bit lonely — and you will, too.
