Customer Reviews

The lyrics are well written albeit they are fun and catchy..
Antonio Romo
These songs sound more like outtakes from her first CD, not much new here, and I might add her voice seems a bit irritating.
V. Lane
I am a fan of Lady Gaga and Rihanna, and pretty much you name any strong modern female pop artist.
J. Walsh

The people giving this album one-star reviews because Ke$ha "has no talent" etc, have a very simplified understanding, I think, of how records like this (and her first) get made, and how difficult it is.

First, the majority of the work here is in the production. She was at least partially involved in this process, probably on the creative, if not the technical, end. This becomes clear if you watch any kind of in-depth interview with her, and if you compare her sound to others, and to her influences.

Second, writing "meaningless, catchy" pop songs is not easy. I know this because this is something I do. Packing this kind of brain-sticking power into snarky, compact rhyming couplets, and stringing those into a song in an attractive cadence and with a juicy melody (autotuned or not; it doesn't matter-- should we not use electronic instruments? do we live in the stone age? if it sounds good, do it) is not easy. or lazy. it's very, very hard. that's why people get payed extraordinary amounts of money to do it. Try it sometime.

Her image and personality are all part of the package too. Say what you want about her; she's interesting. Statistically, probably more interesting than you. If not, you should work on becoming famous, because in that case it shouldn't be too hard.

This is an extremely addictive, ass-moving, impeccably produced dance record with wit and provocative power (judging by the bristling reactions to her lyrics i keep hearing), and that, despite the opinions of many of these reviewers (I don't know what their experiences are with making music are; I won't assume) is not something simple, effortless, to render incarnate, though Ke$ha may make it seem so. It isn't genius; it isn't the best out there. But it's a respectable and well-crafted work of pop, and I'm not sure how many people actually know what that means.

There are to types of people: the one's who like Ke$ha, and the one's who don't.

First off: this CD won't turn around any haters to her side, nor will she gain any new fans that didn't like her debut disc "Animal".

"Cannibal" is like the separated at birth twin sister to "Animal", the beats, song messages, and vocals are consistent and similar in every way. So if you liked "Animal" you will like "Cannibal". Ke$ha sings about bad boyfriends, partying, being who you are (even if you are freaky) and the beauty of her life.

The nice thing is that this disc is 9 songs short, no filler to be heard. I would say the production on this disc is touch more interesting than "Animal". My favorite song is "Blow" which literally chops up Ke$ha's vocals in a really unique way. And even in the title track "Cannibal" you can hear a glimpse of Ke$ha's real vocal power in the bridge. Every song is entertaining and Ke$ha always pulls out crazy lyrics that you wouldn't expect, especially on the song "Sleazy".

The only song I would skip over is "Grow A Pear", were she uses words like "vag" and "mangina". The song is catchy but somewhat grating. It is similar to "DINOSAUR" from "Animal" because it is so cheesy and outrageous.

With Ke$ha you get no apologies. She is who she is. Her songs are outrageous and electro-trashy. But you have to admit she is original. Most artists sing about how classy and rich they are, and don't even admit they party hard. Ke$ha seems to stay true to her Tennessee trailer trash self (and I mean that in the nicest way). The most self-revealing song about her life would have to be not shockingly "Crazy Beautiful Life". Somewhere behind the Auto-Tune, glitter, and stockings ripped up the sides is a girl with introspective, talent, and wit.

Its def not supposed to be taken as a serious piece of musical and lyrical artwork. The lyrics are well written albeit they are fun and catchy.. I like this girl, she does what she does and says what she says and I feel she is still finding herself.. but then again aren't we all trying to find ourselves? Thumbs up on this. Wish her some amazing success!

Much like the Pontiac Aztek, you either love or hate Ke$ha - there's no middle ground.

Personally, I think she's creatively dirty and ridiculously entertaining. Her vocals may not win awards, but she can put on quite a show.

Also, if you've ever been to college, you'll find her songs aren't as irrelevant as you'd think...

Try the previews. Her songs have a good beat and never fail to make you laugh.

Short and sweet EPs seem to be the hot commodity nowadays, with everyone from Lady GaGa to Flo Rida to electro-pop tartlet Ke$ha releasing `albums' with fewer than 10 tracks. It's unclear what they're supposed to represent; Lady GaGa's `Fame Monster' went from previous-album-extension to special edition to placeholder LP to more or less full-blown second album in a series of weeks, and Ke$ha's `Cannibal' may end up doing the same, depending on its success and how many singles it produces.

Packaged as both a deluxe edition with `Animal' and separately as its own EP, `Cannibal' essentially offers more of the same, and doesn't diverge radically from the boozy electro-party of Ke$ha's debut. Opener and lead single "We R Who We R" is a fizzy, upbeat romp very similar to the four hits that came before it, but it serves its purpose and will get most parties started. If you're getting fooled into thinking she's taking a different route lyrically because of the vague `be yourself' theme, don't; boozing, sexing and partying are all still the highest priorities here.

The title track rides a booming beat to a questionable metaphor (and off-color Jeffrey Dahmer reference), but remains passable ear candy thanks to its soaring chorus and peppy backbeat. "Sleazy" is a so-so hip-hop cut, while "Blow" makes such heavy use of auto-tune you'd think it was manufactured entirely on a computer. The latter, however, makes unique use of the vocal effects and ends up being a solid thrasher.

Although her pounding party jams are what she's known for, Ke$ha is at her most fascinating when her vulnerability shines through, as the stellar "Hangover" and "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes" displayed.
