So don't expect amazing lyrics, perfect vocal pitches and amazing songs, but...
The songs are all catchy and Rita has a lovely voice. Bar the first song "Facemelt", there isn't a single song you need to skip. The songs all carry a nice message and are upbeat and well-sung. My personal favourities are "Roc The Life", "Radioactive", "How We Do", "Been Lyin" and "Hot Right Now". These are the catchiest, most upbeat songs on the album and all the potential singles.
The other songs are pleasant, but they feel a little like filler tracks and can be a tiny bit repetitive. The main reason for this, is Rita hasn't written most of these songs or contributed to the writing in any way. And, because of that, it feels more like the work of a singer rather than an artist. There is something missing.
Thankfully, that something is very minor and we must remember this s a debut album and an outstanding first attempt. Nothing new is covered here and this feels like a Rihanna-meets-Nicki-meets-Gaga-meets-JessieJ...it lacks personality on the whole. But occasionally, Rita shines through and she is amazing.
The album is great for exercising to and I am sure it will be a grower! Well done, Rita!
My only issue is that she needs to find her own personality and develop a little. But, practice makes perfect. In some ways. This feels like a Rihanna-inspired album. I love Rihanna, but I feel this is very similar in style. Too similar.
But Rita's voice shines through and is lovely to listen to. I think you should buy tha because you won't regret it! It want be a firm favourite, but is pleasant and will keep your need for music satisfied for a while.
