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.

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.

In 2009 and 2010, Rihanna quickly released her fourth and fifth albums 'Rated R' and 'Loud' which were musically opposite, with 'Rated R' (2009) being a dark music album with songs about violence, darkness and sadness while 'Loud' (2010) being a fun album with dance-pop songs. I don't own 'Rated R' yet (just heard the singles) so I can't rate it, but I thought 'Loud' was a fun album but it seems it was just too fun for my taste and lacked something, a sound (I'll be posting a review of the album soon). In 2011, she decided to continue with the "an album per year" formula and released this album 'Talk That Talk', which for me is her best effort to date and combines 'Rated R' and 'Loud' making it a masterpiece. I'll review the songs now:

1. You Da One - The album's first track and second single. A nice fun song, but it gets a little repeatitive after a while. I give it a 9/10

2. Where Have You Been - The album's second track and fourth single. This was co-written and co-produced by Calvin Harris, the same person who wrote and produced her hit 'We Found Love' also on this album, so it sounds similar to that song. I love this one, it should be a single. I give it a 10/10

3. We Found Love - The album's third track and first single. We all know this one, this was Rihanna's eleventh #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 and is a very fun song to dance to, Calvin Harris is a genious writer and producer! I give it a 10/10

4. Talk That Talk - The album's fourth track and third single. The album's title track features Jay-Z and it's the third time they make a major collaboration after 'Run This Town' (also featuring Kanye West) and the classic 'Umbrella'. This was confirmed by Rihanna as the third single and a video will be shot maybe in February 2012.

Is this album gonna be big compared to her album "Loud"?
Hm, someone who finally agrees with me. "Loud" wasn't even Loud. I am madly in love with the entire "Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded" and "Rated R" albums, and frequently listen to "Music Of THe Sun" and "Girl Like Me" too.
