5.0 out of 5 stars My, how my fan tables have turned December 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When she first came out, I just couldn't handle her voice. It irritated me so much and I still can't stand that "Umbrella" song. I don't remember what made me finally give her a shot. Maybe it was that "S&M" song. All I know is that I got her last CD "Loud" and now I'm a fan for good. I let this CD ride all the way through. I love her singing. The beats are hot. The lyrics are definitely on the raunchy, edgy side but then she gets to be sweeter on certain songs. She's the perfect blend of funk ("You Da One," "Cockiness" and "Watch N' Learn"), party ("Where Have You Been"), pop ("We Found Love" and "Roc Me Out"), and R&B ("We All Want Love" and "Drunk on Love") and soul ("Fairwell," I have the feeling that song is going to be on some military film).

The beats to "Cockiness" and "Birthday Cake" get me charged in the health club every single time. I thought LMFAO's "Sexy & I Know It (2-Track)" was going to be my workout song for the year. Rihanna came in and took that spot, too. "Watch N' Learn" is my other favorite track, but again, I could listen to them all.

Her last two CDs make me want to visit her earlier work. For Rihanna fans from the beginning, were the rest of her CDs this good? Please leave comments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rihanna's 6th Album Does Not Disappoint (Too Much)! January 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
When it comes to music sales, it's a fairly obvious fact that a large percentage of those sales occur within the first week of release. With that in mind, one can conclude that most members of Rihanna's Navy have gotten their hands on a copy of "Talk That Talk" by now. As for everyone else, whether you are a casual Rihanna fan or have been too busy to pick up this CD, you are most likely reading reviews of people expressing their various thoughts and opinions of Rihanna's latest musical effort. I'll get straight to the point- while I do consider myself a fan of Rihanna's work, I have to admit that some of my expectations were not met. For the most part however, I thoroughly enjoyed this album and I will be listing to it for a long time.

I hate to restate the obvious, but this is clearly Rihanna's most sexual album to date. If "Loud" was about sex, then, by comparison, "Talk That Talk" would be about a group orgy in the campaign offices of a GOP nominee. Not every song is about sex, however; there are also a few songs about love and acceptance in the form of mid tempos, ballads, and even dance tracks.

"You Da One" opens the album with Rihanna singing about a man she's allegedly in love with. In case you haven't already heard this on the radio, this is a mid tempo track with an uplifting mood. This is not a bad way to start the album, and makes the song a reasonable choice for a second single. The bridge of the song features a dub-step breakdown and Rihanna teases "You shouldn't have hit it like that, [you shouldn't have] had me yelling like that." The incorporation of dup-step was somewhat predictable given the current `trend' in radio music, but in this case, the breakdown does not necessarily detract from the song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Rihanna's best, but still pretty good February 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Rihanna's sixth studio album, "Talk That Talk", is a decent album. As a Rihanna fan, I like this album better than "Music of the Sun" and "Rated R" but I don't like it as much as "Good Girl Gone Bad", "A Girl Like Me", or "Loud". "Talk That Talk" is upbeat almost the way through and is balanced between American R&B/hip-hop and European electro-house. Unlike her other albums, there is only one slow ballad on the album and no occasional rock track. And at under 40 minutes, it is Rihanna's shortest album to date.

Many of the album's songs have good beats. My favorite song on the album is "You Da One". It's a mid-tempo song with a very catchy chorus and elements of dubstep and reggae. "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been" are produced by British electro-house DJ Calvin Harris. Calvin Harris is one of the best at what he does, and these tracks are no exception. Unless you've been living under a rug, you've heard "We Found Love". The title track, "Talk That Talk", has a fast, heavy hip-hop beat; "Cockiness (Love It)" is dancehall infused; "Birthday Cake" is just a minute and a half long and features a slowed down electro beat. The latter two are the, umm, racy side of the album.

However, the lyrical content on the album is lacking. "Talk That Talk" was released less than a year after "Loud", and it shows. Many of the songs feature the same lines repeated over and over, and have lyrics that are not clever or inventive. The album only ballad, "Farewell", is underwhelming. "We All Want Love" is a mid-tempo song that does have good lyrical structure.

Even though I like six or seven of the songs on the album, none of them stand out like "Umbrella", "Unfaithful", or "What's My Name?" however.

If you are a Rihanna fan or a fan of pop music that is R&B-based or club-based, you may or may not be satisfied with this album.

(3 1/2 out of 5 stars)

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I just got this album yesterday and im am beyond in love.... Its rare that i find a album i can listen to the entire way through... Some people have their opinion about different artist turning to dance music... But i say its about time they changed it up a bit.... Everybody wants to stand on the wall and chill... or look like robots while every one does the same dance! This album makes you wanna move, and just enjoy the music for once.. I think this one and "Loud" are the best to date! Big ups to RiRi! Lovin this album keep makin that "Move it" music!

Rihanna is not afraid of saying it like it is and i love it. This is not music for children because of her lyrics, but man is she amazing. If you start your day sad, put this on.
