A big let-down

on 5/29/2007

I find myself to be one of Rihanna's fans. I purchased her recent albums when they were released. This time, I decided I would try something new and download the album before I heard it. I must say that I was rather speechless when I heard her album. Rihanna is a beautiful girl and has a beautiful voice, but the whole little tyring something new is just not fitting for her. Some of the songs are decent, but must say that is about 3 out of the 12 songs. Don't get me wrong, the use of the electric guitar is something new, and I like it, but for the most part...nah....its just not doin u any justice :( I'm sorry Rihanna, I applaud you for trying something new, but this one just did not cut it for me. Hope to listen to something a little better from you next year :(

One Good Song!

on 6/3/2008

I purchased the CD for "Don't Stop the Music". The song is excellent. Didn't care for the rest of the CD unfortunately.

Although it was released in June of 2007, Rihanna's GOOD GIRL GONE BAD refused to quit well into the summer of 2008, lingering on the Billboard charts and sending up single after single, including "Umbrella," "Shut Up and Drive," "Hate That I Love You," and "Don't Stop the Music." The RELOADED edition of the album contains three bonus tracks: Rihanna's #1 single "Take a Bow," "Disturbia," and a cover of Maroon 5's "If I Never See Your Face Again" (which she performs with Maroon 5 itself). The limited edition disc also comes with a DVD of behind-the-scenes footage.
Artist Overview
Growing up on the fairly remote island of Barbados in the West Indies, Rihanna never foresaw international stardom and a regular presence atop charts from Germany to Japan. The singer established herself big time in 2005 with her debut hit, "Pon de Replay," and continued to demonstrate her smash-hit potential in subsequent years. It was Good Girl Gone Bad (2007), a first-rate dance-pop album, that solidified her standing, with "Umbrella" and "Don't Stop the Music." In the wake of a public altercation with then-boyfriend Chris Brown, Rated R (2009) featured a darker sound, while Loud (2010), Talk That Talk (2011), and Unapologetic (2012) balanced emotive ballads and brighter dance-pop sounds. ~ Jason Birchmeier
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.p.79) - "Rihanna's tangy tremolo is unmistakably reminiscent of early hip-hop-soul divas Monica and SWV's Coko....A thrilling throwback to more than a decade ago."
Uncut (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] shiny, trans-atlantic blend of Europop vim, R&B grit and Caribbean bounce."
Vibe (p.69) - "[A]n adventurous reinvention....Rihanna's strength still lies in uptempo numbers..."
