Dedicated Side B Tracklist:
So I’ve had this on repeat since it was released, and my only critique is that I’m angry that she had the AUDACITY to market this brilliant collection of pop songs as b-sides. Literally any other pop artist would be lucky enough to record an album of songs this good. My hope is that it is received by the GP as the truly outstanding pop album it is. It deserves to be viewed as its own/stand-alone era in the CRJ timeline, and I believe we will look back on it as such. No one (and I do mean NO SINGLE CONTEMPORARY POP ARTIST) has the talent to craft such perfect pop melodies in this consistent of a fashion. No one. This Love Isn’t Crazy is the highlight here, along with Fake Mona Lisa, Solo—ok, the entire album is bliss. Thank you, CRJ for blessing us with this perfect collection of songs in the midst of these troubled times.
Hey, Queen! Girl, you have done it again, constantly raising the bar for us all and doing it flawlessly. I'd say I'm surprised, but I know who you are. I've seen it up close and personal. Girl, you make me so proud, and I love you.
Carly Rae Jepsen has been known as pop music’s biggest underdog, and with Dedicated Side B she has proven that she can do no wrong. Side B comes after the mellowed vibes within Dedicated. However, Side B offers higher highs than its predecessor with many songs often sounding like they belong on her 2015 album E•MO•TION — Side B is a perfect mixture of both Dedicated and Emotion and will please both parties equally. Overall, Side B is a wonderfully crafted album that mixes in 70s,80s, and 90s stylistic choices perfectly.
