Editorial Reviews

There's nothing like the warm spirit of the caribbean, to re-energize a dry, stale season of the same old song & dance. Introducing Rihanna, a stunning 17-yr-old from barbados who's poised & positioned to take the music world by storm. Already on teen peoples's hot list, Rihanna's powerful singing voice conjures up feelings & experiences way beyond her years....while still maintaining her youthful spirit. Besides ripping traditional reggae tracks like a seasoned dancehall Queen, she exudes the kind of energy that solidifies her as one of 05's top emerging artists. Her debut album Music Of The Sun, includes the mega summer hit 'Pon De Replay' as well as the sultry ballad 'last time', & the track masters produced 'If It's Lovin That You Want'. Island. 2005.

By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 16, 2005
Format: Audio CD
A fresh new female face of reggae has hit the USA, compliments of Jay-Z and Def Jam, and to the vacationing producer and his wife who stumbled upon Rihanna in her home turf in Barbados.

Lucky to be in the right place at the right time with the right voice and song, Rihanna captured the dance scene with her catchy single "Pon De Replay", a dancehall track with Sean Paul type rhythms, and Lumidee appeal.

To lovers of Caribbean music, this is standard fare, played at parties everywhere, and although the rest of the album is likeable, there's nothing spectacular. The second track "Here I Go Again" is what we call "Lover's Rock", with a beat as old as the hills, a genre that inspired millions of bump and grind slow dances. "You Don't Love Me (No, No, No)" is another Lover's Rock remix, and although she's only 17, she sounds much older singing this type of ballad.

"Music of the Sun" is a good track, with a chorus sounding like Debarge's "Rhythm of the Night"

Debarge:

Feel the beat of the rhythm of the night

dance until the morning light

Forget about the worries on your mind

you can leave them all behind

feel the beat of the rhythm of the night..

oohh the rhythm of the night...

First off I must say that Rihanna is a beutiful lady and is extremely talented. I'm going to do a song by song diagnosis. So to start off:

1) Pon de Replay-infetious dancehall song with a booming bass and a catchy hook so irresistible, no matter what mood your in it just makes you wanna get out of your seat and dance. With that said the lyrics aren't really all that complicated but it's just a fun song to dance to- 3.5/5

2) Here I go Again- this song is off the chains, the beat is so laidback and sounds likie something you'd find in an old Kingston record shop her vocals are on point and the lyrics match the song perfectly and the rap from J-Status fits the song perfectly. A single worth song that would do extremely well. 4.5/5

3) If It's Lovin that U Want- 2nd single that will blow up on radio for sure, personally the second single should've been "here I go again" but this still works well. Produced by the trackmasters it has a nice guitar and the layered vocals and the only problem with it is that it really has no bridge but she brings it home at the end by hitting some high notes and influencing a reggae track with some slick r&b vocals. 4/5

4) You Don't Love Me (No No No) f. Vybz Kartel- Cover of Dawn Penn's original version but Rihanna's is so much better it's a shame, she covers this song so well infusing her own itwist and adding her own trills and adlibs (which she does very well) Then with the addition of Kartel on the track makes it so much better, this song has sooo much personality and is just a excellent song to lay back to and rock to. 4.

Rihanna, a new artist signed to Jay-Z's Def Jam, comes with a straight fire debut. She combines R&B and Caribbean/Reggae together and it comes out great. Definately a great buy which everyone needs to purchase.

Pon De Replay - 10/10 - The first single, and everyone's heard it. Definately fire.

Here I Go Again - 8.5/10 - Not the best beat, but Rihanna kills it!

If It's Lovin' That You Want - 7/10 - Nice beat, but not a good performence by Rihanna. Not my choice for the second single.

You Don't Love Me (No, No, No) - 5/10 - How many times has this song been redone? Jae Millz definately killed his version though. Anyway, Rihanna does do a good job on the chorus, and I just don't like the verses, along with the beat and the whole vibe of it.

That La la La - 9/10 - A CRAZY beat, which Rihanna gets a good chorus over. Nice job.

The Last Time - 9/10 - A slower song with a soothing guitar. A breakup song basiclly. The R&B side, which this song she pulls off great.

Willing To Wait - 6/10 - Another R&B song, which isn't too good this time around. Seems like it lasts forever, which isn't a good sign.

Music of the Sun - 7/10 - Being that the album title is basiclly Music of the Caribbean, I would predict a much more up-tempo song here like earlier in the album. But, no. It's still okay, a little more up-tempo than the last two songs, but it's not good, a little repetitive. More like an intro, or at least a song early in the album, not halfway through.

Let Me - 7/10 - A nice start, and Rihanna jumps in and kills it! Nice beat, and a more R&B inspired Hip-Hop kind of song. Really reminded of Amerie. If I heard this on the radio, I might've thought it was her!
