What's the story?
Is it any good?
Given the surprise runaway success of "Call Me Maybe," there was probably a mad dash to get an album out for Jepsen. Although there are some solid tracks and it's clear that Jepsen has the vocal chops to carry a record, the songs on Kiss are mostly cookie-cutter synth-pop that get redundant after the third track. "Beautiful," with JB, is the only song that slows it down, with some acoustic guitar and a slightly grittier sound that's refreshing compared with the rest of the record. "Tonight I'm Gettin' Over You" lets Jepsen stretch her vocals and stands out as one of the better singles.

Do you think Jepsen is a positive role model? Why or why not?
