I cannot help compare Carly Rae Jepsen’s The Loneliest Time with Taylor Swift’s Midnight. Both released on the same day, it has been interesting listening to them side-by-side. Whereas Midnight is somewhat contained, Jepsen engaged with various writers and producers to carve out the album. Although there is an overall feel of reflection throughout, the album is definitely more of a journey than Midnight. I wonder what difference it would make if Jepsen worked with one producer / team? Then again, maybe it is just her nature to bring together a range of sounds?
