The 'Rated R' album, was always going to be a very hard act to follow, although a little darker than previous offerings, still some of her finest work to date.
This new album is a continuation of her musical development, with quite a mixture of tracks. The outstanding track is probably 'only girl in the world', which proved its credentials by rocketing to the top of the charts. I like 'what's my name' and 's & m' a lot as well.
Interestingly, a strange ommision is 'love the way you lie'. However, included is 'love the way you lie (part 2)', which does really grow on you.
So there is lots to like about this album and is an absolute must for fans.
