Good Girl Gone Bad

Todays Review is one I just couldn't resist. This artist is one of the few female faces of the now dysfunctional Roc-A-Fella Label. She has been a club hit maker for a while now, and for good reasons. Last year her songs S.O.S and Unfaithful dominated the airwaves. The artist is Rihanna!!

The one thing Rihanna has goin for her is her soothing R&B rhythm, the production work has always been amazing, when you have Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo and the production team Stargate behind Shakira and Beyonce's "Beautiful Liar" your bound to have a hit on your hand. The New Album is Good Girl Gone Bad!!!

Clearly this is not my style, but i did highly enjoy S.O.S so i had hope. Unfortunately i found that this album was actually just annoying. The beats were good, they held up for sure but at the same time when you listen to it there isn't any song that makes you wanna dance as much as her previous stuff. A couple songs have a good feel to them, a bunch are just redundant. Her lead single right now "Umbrella" is a song that i couldn't wait to end. I just dragged on and on, if you don't really care about music and just want a cd to dance to, i guess this works. I just really couldn't really just continually listen to this style but keep in mind, its not my style. If i was out with friends maybe i could do it a bit better, but it was definitely nothing compared to "Like a Boy" by Ciara. There are songs i can stand "Rehab" produced by Timbaland with backing vocals by Justin is a really easy listenin song, it's slower in tempo. On a whole I think even for an R&B CD there are better options out there than this one, a sad let down for sure.

My Review 4/10
You like this style 7/10
you hate this style 0/10

So ya i am workin on this, i got some really awesome feedback from some friends yesterday so thanks a million. Honestly people keep checking back, its growin daily and its been awesome havin people comin back. I honestly thank you because i officially hit my goal of 200 unique visitors this past weekend far before i thought i would. So thanks and i will keep doin this, and if you want me to do a certain CD just tell me.
