Wow! I bought this CD on a whim after reading a review by Mike Ragogna on the Huffington Post. He said this was the album Rihanna needed to make, not an album the record label would have necessarily chosen for her to make. It almost sounds like it could have been recorded in 1980's Eastern Europe with so many heavy techno beats and crunchy synths and simmering industrial arrangements. Apparently Rihanna's Caribbean accent is more present on this album than her previous work. I'd never been drawn to Rihanna's earlier work so I can't qualify that assertion, but I think her accent works for her and I hope she continues to brandish it in her future work. If you are a fan of blended musical genres and artist experimentation and still enjoy popular music, this CD is a goldmine. Not a single dud track and it flows nicely. It may take a while for people to realize it, but this is going to end up being a landmark CD for Rihanna. It's an amazing piece of work by a young person so early in their career. I can't wait to see where she goes next in her sound. This is a young woman firmly in control of her music and her life.

After a couple of years, the lovely Rihanna returns with a new album (not just a re-release--THANK GOODNESS!!!). After going through the domestic violence case this past year, she claims in interviews that she has grown a lot, and has transferred it into her work. And how did that turn out? Read on for the Track by Track Review.

1. Mad House - Nice Intro..dark tone and setting for the rest of the album (I'm not going to rate this track, though)
2. Wait Your Turn - Very reggae-feeling with Rihanna's voice. Not the normal RiRi that we all grew to know and love on GGGB. The minute I heard the F bomb I was really shocked (I don't really like vulgarity in music that much). The chorus is the best part for sure. 3.5/5
3. Hard (featuring Jeezy) - The beginning is a little awkward. But after that, it only gets better. The chorus, once again, is probably the most memorable part, along with the verses by Jeezy. Stellar production makes this a solid track that is definitely one of the better of the "new-Rihanna" tracks. At first listen, you may not like it (like I didn't enjoy it when I first heard it), but give it a second listen and you might like it. 4/5
4. Stupid In Love - Whew. Now that the gangsta-tracks are over, we hear a ballad by Rihanna. This track, aided greatly by a piano background, is a stand out track. I believe that this track exemplifies the emotions of Rihanna greatly. 4/5
5. Rockstar 101 (featuring Slash!!) - Back to rocker Rihanna. Something just seems to be missing from this track to make it epic. Oh well. Another example of the edgier Rihanna that everyone is talking about...and I'm not a huge fan. But another good track (where you should probably give it a second chance after you hear it for the first time). 3/5
6. Russian Roulette - Lead Single.

With all the negative reviews prior to release, I was expecting to be seriously disappointed. Yes, the album is dark, and rightfully so. As most artists do, Rihanna pulled her life/experiences into this album, as clearly referenced in, among other songs, "Cold Case Love." During my first listen through, I caught myself rocking out to several tracks like "Hard," "Rockstar 101," and "Rude Boy." Rihanna still keeps it sexy and even ventures on the edge of 'curiosity' with the rejection filled track "Te Amo". If your a Rihanna fan, you'll probally still love a few to several tracks on this one. Buy the whole album and find out which ones you love! I definetly recommend getting the EXPLICIT version, otherwise you'll probably be left with a ton of dubbing. Plus, you won't really be getting the true and full vision Rihanna created with this album.

Okay, I loved "Good Girl Gone Bad" regular version, and the Reloaded/Remixed version. So, when I first listened to "Rated R", I thought most of the songs were too slow, not enough upbeat tracks. But, with this album "Rated R: Remixed", it changed the songs to be more upbeat, and just plain better. If you're like me and wasn't that thrilled with the original, get this Remixed CD, you'll love it!!!

This is an album that grows on you. Upon first listening to it, I definitely felt somewhat let down by 'Rated R'. The music is not as catchy; nothing leaps out as a Billboard hit like her signature songs "S.O.S" or "Umbrella". In fact, Rihanna ditches the pop/dance track and takes on a hip-hop/rock vibe instead. 'Rated R' is a page turner in Rihanna's career; just like the title, this isn't something for kids. There's cursing, there's violence and in many songs it feels as if this is Rihanna's therapy album, featuring moments of the old, sweet, and innocent pop star being hushed and silenced by a vulnerable, angry woman.

The Good: After a few listens, 'Rated R' is definitely not a bad album. I heard (like many) the preview samples and clips. Those did nothing for many of these songs. After being able to slip in this disc and listen to each song in its entirety, I can say there's a lot more depth and personality in this than in Good Girl Gone Bad or in Music of the Sun. Considering how much Rihanna has been through over the past year personally, I felt like the 'Rated R' tracks were far more realistic and authentic than her previous hits.
