There are to types of people: the one's who like Ke$ha, and the one's who don't.
First off: this CD won't turn around any haters to her side, nor will she gain any new fans that didn't like her debut disc "Animal".
"Cannibal" is like the separated at birth twin sister to "Animal", the beats, song messages, and vocals are consistent and similar in every way. So if you liked "Animal" you will like "Cannibal". Ke$ha sings about bad boyfriends, partying, being who you are (even if you are freaky) and the beauty of her life.
The nice thing is that this disc is 9 songs short, no filler to be heard. I would say the production on this disc is touch more interesting than "Animal". My favorite song is "Blow" which literally chops up Ke$ha's vocals in a really unique way. And even in the title track "Cannibal" you can hear a glimpse of Ke$ha's real vocal power in the bridge. Every song is entertaining and Ke$ha always pulls out crazy lyrics that you wouldn't expect, especially on the song "Sleazy".
The only song I would skip over is "Grow A Pear", were she uses words like "vag" and "mangina". The song is catchy but somewhat grating. It is similar to "DINOSAUR" from "Animal" because it is so cheesy and outrageous.
With Ke$ha you get no apologies. She is who she is. Her songs are outrageous and electro-trashy. But you have to admit she is original. Most artists sing about how classy and rich they are, and don't even admit they party hard. Ke$ha seems to stay true to her Tennessee trailer trash self (and I mean that in the nicest way). The most self-revealing song about her life would have to be not shockingly "Crazy Beautiful Life". Somewhere behind the Auto-Tune, glitter, and stockings ripped up the sides is a girl with introspective, talent, and wit.
