4.0 out of 5 stars Loud, September 25, 2011
This review is from: Loud (Explicit Version) [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
I like Rihanna and I like her singles but that's all this album really is in the end, singles. It might as well be a singles collection. She didn't write any of the songs on her album and that's always been a pet peeve of mine. It's not as if pop music is great art or anything, but this album is nevertheless disappointing. Rihanna is a talented singer and I honestly believe she is capable of much more than Loud. With the exception of a few songs, this album is fairly shallow.

The singles are all very good. Great hooks, fun music and strong vocals. Basically perfect pop songs. But what's the point in buying an album unless the rest of the tracks measure up? The album tracks are generic and forgettable. The album itself feels very careless, a bunch of random songs thrown together. The best songs that aren't singles are Complicated and Love the Way You Lie Part II. And the second one is simply another version of a single! It's disappointing to say the least. From the impressive singles, I thought the album would measure up.

So it's decent enough for a pop album, but even among pop albums there have been better. Still it's fun enough and Rihanna sounds amazing. I don't regret my purchase.
