# 1

This album is kind of an interesting direction for her..
I like some of the songs

# 2

I like it!!!! Nothing is over the top it’s great! I have already pre-ordered from iTunes and I will happily go to target to pick up a CD for the car!!

# 3

…sooo mediocre….not worthy of the hype…..

# 4

Meh, I think I’m over her…..
She took the low road and totally overexposed herself (in more ways than one)
Now, She’s just another *eye roll* poptart

# 5

Pretty lame. I expected more after all the hype.

# 6

The execution is not bad but her voice is underwhelming.

# 7

Girl needs to do something about her hair. It looks so dry that it’ll break off.

# 8

:) like it

# 9

This was what the wait was for?
Disappointing.

Did Rihanna write any of these songs?

Even Gaga kicks her ass these days.

She really needs the guest vocalist.
It’s what props her up.

Not a huge fan of the excerpts but I’d like to hear the full album instead of a sampler.

Why not do the whole thing like Beyonce did? This was not enough to peak some ones curosity and that’s what they are hoping.. If you have that much faith in your girl label, release them all. Beyonce did and just about every single she released went plat except for Diva I think. Rihanna needs a long vacay home with her make believe family.. She went dark and she’s not coming back.. Another picture for this CD was released and she is still showing way too much skin. Rihanna let me give you some good advice; you’re not GAGA!

i liked the song hard…but overall it sounds like they were trying too hard to make her hard, too hard to make her seem really strong and kick ass, sometimes it’s ok to seem hurt…i think that in the process she started believing more and more in her image, rather than her songs…maybe it was jay-z’s doing, that guy thinks he’s the genius of the new millenium because he’s able to rhyme things in interesting ways, and put beats against it…that whole crowd jay-z, kanye, and now rihanna i think believe their hype way too much. rihanna didn’t seem like that before, but maybe i’m wrong. i think they,, her team, focused too much on the rihanna brand, and when you start controlling your image too much, some things get left behind in the process, like interesting music. even with gaga, during her first album, every single song was a hit, and now when u listen to her new album, there are just a few good songs, like bad romance, and maybe dance in the dark…it’s because people start believing their hype/image way too much, and they can’t focus as much on the good music, because they’re focused too much on the former.

Agree, need more to judge this on…will wait for the entire CD before I form a full opinion.

sit down rihanna

Im not really a fan of hers… but I liked these songs
In my opinion…its her best album so far

Althought, her voice is truly annoying..she’s defintely not Christina Aguilera or Mariah Carey..

I think the songs are ok, she just doesn’t have a powerful set of pipes. Not everyone can be Whitney Houston though..not even Whitney’s Whitney anymore.

C- so far.

If they gave me a free copy, I’d listen and maybe sell it on Ebay later.

Stay strong, don’t let CB bring you down. Your album will rock!

Me and myself @ 11/12/2009 at 4:15 pm
