5.0 out of 5 stars ~Rihanna In The Zone~ 4.5 Stars!, November 19, 2012
This review is from: Unapologetic (Deluxe Edition) [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
Like Octomom and Anna Duggar, Rihanna keeps spitting them out one after another and is rightfully deemed the busiest woman in music. She releases yet another solid winner with 'Unapologetic', an album that is one part 'Loud' and one part 'Talk That Talk' and stewed into a delectable dish. Here are some comments on my favorite cuts from the CD.

~"Phresh Out The Runway" is the one to crank up to get in the zone. Frenetic, braggadocious, and urban, this is a banger!

~"Get It Over It" is a gorgeous, unusual duet with hitmaker and songwriter James Fauntleroy and is my favorite cut from this CD! Their voices complement one another perfectly. How intervals in the melody glide beautifully over sustained chords throughout the song is intriguing to hear. "Look up, the sun is just a cloud away..."

~"Diamonds" is the perfect lead single that celebrates the strength of a particular bond. The clarity of her diction is amazing.

~"Numb" ft. Eminem is hard to describe, but I love the hell out of it. Eminem is brilliant as usual (listen for his police siren - LOL)!

~"Jump" is drenched with the signature sound of producers Stargate ("Rude Boy" & "What's My Name?"). Containing elements of Ginuwine's 'Pony', Rihanna is point blank about how she handles a player.

~"Nobody's Business" ft Chris Brown is a fun, upbeat flashback that salutes 1980s R&B (similar to Luther Vandross' "Never Too Much").

~"Love Without Tragedy-Mother Mary" starts off like a 1980s pop hit that Cyndi Lauper or Sting would have recorded. The song is a personal expression that not only sounds honest, it feels sincere.

Other songs on the CD are getting great feedback even though they haven't made as strong of an impression on me at this point. "Loveeee Song" would have been *much* better without Future's distorted, autotune vocoder. It just kills the mood. "Skin" from her 'Loud' CD got it right! Radio is so just oversaturated with euro-dance cuts, but Rihanna is comfortably in her zone on "Right Now". And fans really seem to love piano ballad "Stay". But if I never gravitate to the other songs on the CD, 'Unapologetic' is well worth the purchase based on the songs that I do like. Rihanna remains a musical diva dynamo who at age 24 (Wow!) is doing what she was born to do! 4.5 stars!
