RiRi's not afraid to slow it down and show her sensitive side and how she's a hopeless romantic on tracks like ''We All Want Love'', ''Drunk on Love'' and ''Farewell''. This is one of the few Rihanna albums where I don't have a favorite song. The whole ALBUM is my favorite song. It's very mixed and diverse and it's not as personal as some of her other albums but that's ok. I enjoyed it nonetheless
My favorite tracks are... Farewell, Cockiness(Love it), Birthday Cake, Where have you been, and Drunk On Love. =D
WE ALL WANT LOVE gave me a "hmmmm" moment, I like the sentiment of the lyrics but it's not an inspired track; FAREWELL - sounds like something they'd play for ousted American Idol contestants and FOOL IN LOVE - very ok, nothing special to it except the guitar solo.
On to the good, which the album has plenty of - catchy, melodic, fun, danceable tracks! My instant faves:
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN - I go into an imaginary dance trance on this one
TALK THAT TALK - although I could've done without Jay's verse and one more pre-chorus from Rhi this is one of the tracks that I catch myself humming during the work day
WATCH & LEARN - oh, the double entendres on this track! Love the breezy arrangement and her quick singing the chorus
DRUNK ON LOVE - this is one of those tracks where I wonder what it would sound like if Rhi was a better vocalist because as is she has to virtually shout the lyrics to convey emotion which can be unpleasant to listen to but yet and still I really like this song
YOU DA ONE - another breezy fun track (although I don't think it was strong enough for a single release ya never know how the public will respond to a song)
COCKINESS - more double entendres but such a catchy track
BIRTHDAY CAKE - naughty interlude (can't wait for the full track release)
DO YA THING - don't care for the lyrics (allowing your guy to disrespect you?) but the arrangement is reminiscent of RUDE BOY
The songs that are "ok" to me are: WE FOUND LOVE - it's growing on me but I'm still kind of 'meh' about it; RED LIPSTICK & ROC ME OUT
I also want to comment about the cd packaging - with the deluxe version you get an expanded digi-pack casing which I am getting sick of because they do get damaged over time no matter how well you treat your cd collection. You also get a booklet full of pics of Rhi and postcard like copies of both TTT album covers and finally a very sparse album liner that is a little difficult to read because the info is all squeezed onto one side while her 'R' logo covers the other (waste of space) but in total makes a good presentation and collection item for fans.
My gripe is that I wish instead of so many pics of Rhi they'd done a better job of presenting the album liner information. Looking back at her RATED R album liner there were a lot of pics of her along with the album information and it worked so I guess they were trying to reward her fans this time around with the pictorial. I also wish that they had added a "making of" dvd - I enjoyed the dvd that accompanied her LOUD cd because it allowed us behind the curtain to see her working on her album.
Overall though, I would strongly recommend getting this album - there are just too many catchy songs that you'll have a great time listening & dancing to.
