"You Da One" is pretty boring and "Where Have You Been" sounds like it belongs in a cheesy spy movie. "We Found Love," "Talk That Talk," "Cockiness," "Birthday Cake," and "Do Ya Thang" all range between pretty good and slightly above average, but the other 10 tracks on the deluxe edition are super forgettable. Overall it's a pretty weak album imo.

Good review, although I think the score is a tad high. Agree with you about Birthday Cake. Love the beat, I just wish it was an actual song rather than an interlude.

This was better than her first two albums, but 3, 4, and 5 were better than this, in my opinion

This is still a notch below Loud for me, but it's grown on me a little. LOVE the first four tracks.

on a side note, I left a little something for you in my review of Punk Goes Pop 4 ~

Thank you, and I agree that it should be longer! I think she may release it as a long song.

Trey Songz made an interlude song that was like 47 seconds long, and on his next album, he made a longer version that was about 4 minutes long, so anything can happen!

I don't agree with Where Have You Been sounding like a LMFAO song and Farewell blows California King Bed out of the water. California King Bed is an awful song. Other than that, good review.

Oh and there is hardly any traces of dubstep. People who actually do listen to real dubstep will disagree with you

When I first heard it, it reminded me of a female version of an LMFAO song..I don't feel that way anymore, though

And I have to disagree with California King Bed being an awful song. I think it's amazing

There's a little dubstep.. not that much though

Idk, that song just never clicked with me.

And I heard very faint dubstep in We Found Love. The album is definitely packed with club music though

Not a fan of Rihanna's singing but the beats are great. I got annoyed at We Found Love being a single. That song is complete garbage in my opinion.

Lol when I mentioned the dubstep, it was for "Red Lipstick," not "We Found Love"
