I'm downright obsessed with this. Surprised with the lack of love for Summer Love tho.

I can buy this as her most consistent but I don't think a string of 4/5 tracks is quite a 4.5 record. I need my highs with Carly so I slightly prefer Side A. Here's my cross-ranking of this era:

1. Julien [4.5]
2. Summer Love [4.5]
3. Happy Not Knowing [4.5]
4. Real Love [4]
5. Want You in My Room [4]
6. No Drug Like Me [4]
7. This Love Isn't Crazy [4]
8. Solo [4]
9. Party For One [4]
10. Now That I Found You [4]
11. Too Much [4]
12. Automatically in Love [4]
13. Heartbeat [4]
14. This Is What They Say [4]
15. Felt This Way [4]
16. Right Words Wrong Time [3.5]
17. Now I Don’t Hate California After All [3.5]
18. Let’s Sort the Whole Thing Out [3.5]
19. Stay Away [3.5]
20. Window [3.5]
21. The Sound [3.5]
22. Everything He Needs [3.5]
23. Comeback [3.5]
24. Fake Mona Lisa [3]
25. I’ll Be Your Girl [2.5] (skip)
26. Feels Right [2.5] (skip)

I can appreciate that, and I agree this doesn't have quite as high of highs. But for me Side A is so hit-or-miss. Real Love, Want You In My Room, and No Drug Like Me are probably my 4.5's, Happy Not Knowing is my 4, but then the rest of Side A is around a 3.5/5 or lower (for me). Side B is as you said straight 4's (although I'd argue a handful of 4.5's exist) and to me that makes for a better album. Obviously our views on Side A differ though.

I don't have the words to explain it but that song makes me feel vaguely ill. everything about it sounds like Carly doing a cut-rate impersonation of another artist who I'd never listen to unless The Avalanches used them in a sample



...also be real compared to When I Needed You, Love Again and Real Love it pales as a closer
