Product Description

Product Description

Talk That Talk is the sixth studio album from Bajan superstar Rihanna, the follow-up to the phenomenal success of 2010's Loud. The album includes the single "We Found Love" featuring Calvin Harris (Rihanna's sixth UK Number 1 in five consecutive years, a record unequalled by any other female solo artist), as well as "You Da One" and the Jay-Z-featuring title track.

BBC Review

An artist experiencing diminishing returns since 2009’s startling reinvention album Rated R – from victim to victorious in one long-player – Rihanna’s latest can’t stop the rot that set in with the mixed messages of 2010’s Loud. Not that said set was poor – it just failed to match the pop highs of the Umbrella-packing Good Girl Gone Bad and Rated R’s darker tones. The tracks of sixth LP Talk That Talk make a lot of noise but move lethargically – familiar tropes surface in the lyrical content (sexy times being the core focus), and musically it’s a smorgasbord of European dance trends and contemporary RnB production, showy but soulless. Of course there are ballads, too – but after all the saucy front, the slowies feel utterly blunted.

The album begins at a low, the staccato vocal hooks of You Da One irritating rather than engaging. The squelchy, buzzing Where Have You Been is one of two productions from Calvin Harris – indicative of the mainstream dance scene of the UK and Europe making steady progression into the US RnB market. It’s an inoffensive pairing of building beats and sliced-and-diced vocals: to the right feet on the right dancefloor it’ll be manna itself manifested as an arms-in-the-air clubbing highlight. The second Harris hook-up, We Found Love, swells with fevered keys until it explodes, blinding neon like, all over its frenetic, repetitive chorus. It’s by-numbers fare from Harris, given edge by a quite deliberately provocative music video – just the 47 million YouTube views since mid-October.

A forgettable vocal from Jay-Z on the title-track foreshadows an awful exercise in quasi-erotic wordplay on Cockiness (Love It) and a wholly pointless minute-something in the company of star producer The-Dream, wasted on the boring profanities of Birthday Cake. At its halfway mark Talk That Talk takes a turn for the downbeat, the Beyoncé-style paean to perfect monogamy We All Want Love sitting awkwardly beside questionable sexual morals presented by earlier cuts. And Drunk on Love, for the second time in as many weeks release-wise after Rihanna’s guest slot on Drake’s Take Care, matches the Barbadian singer with a Jamie xx (Smith) production, the backing a slightly tweaked take on The xx’s Intro. It feels lazy, an impression that runs the course of this collection, which never convinces the listener that the artist on its cover is fully committed to the cause. On the commercial dubstep rumble of bonus track Red Lipstick, produced by Chase & Status, she sounds as if she phoned in her (again, drearily sexual) vocal five minutes after waking up.

In the recent past Rihanna exhibited a cool nonchalance; here, she’s trapped between playing the characters of a ruthless dominatrix and a docile sort willing to be putty in a boy’s hands. If the real Rihanna doesn’t stand up for her seventh LP, one has to wonder if she’ll ever find herself again.

Whilst she may dismay some out there I have to confess- I am a huge rihanna fan. And I think there are few out there who don't like even 1 of her songs (although they may never admit it.)

Some may think it excessive, this being her sixth album. But she doesn't seem to be boring everyone quite yet, with her hits racing to the top of the charts. And it seems like there are more to come if "Talk That Talk" is anything to go by.

"You Da One" begins the album, and it instantly gives you a "Caribbean feel", and is vastly reminiscent of Rihannas early days. You will find it hard to get this track out of your head. 8/10

"Where have you been" is the album club banger. I predict a spring/summer release for this, and boy will it smash. This is the albums "Don't stop the music" and if you only listen to one song from the album make it this one. 10/10

"We found love" was the debut single for the album. It was the obvious choice, and clearly the best one with the worldwide success. 9/10

"Talk that Talk" is the albums only collaboration, which joins rihanna and Jay Z. The song may not be the next "umbrella" but it's a solid track, and I found myself with it on repeat for weeks. 9/10

"cockiness" is an even more sexed up (if that's even possible) version of S&M. It's fairly safe to say this won't be released as a single due to it not being very radio friendly. "Suck my cockiness lick my persuasion" rihanna sings, and the rest of the song have zero subtlety. However, I for one love these tracks, but if you prefer music that is not so sexually explicit, or you have have children listening, maybe best to hit the skip button. 10/10 (because I personally LOVE IT).

An interlude "birthday cake" follows.

Please note there are FOUR versions of this album. Deluxe clean, normal clean, Deluxe explicit and normal explicit. Make sure you purchase the right one because the explicit are very sexually explicit and do not leave much to the imagination. Go on Youtube and listen to the album before you buy it so you won't end up being dissapointed and giving it a one star!

All I can say is that I have been on Youtube all day listening to this album and, I bloomin Love it. It may not be for everyone but I like it alot (jim Carey stylie). I will be buying the Deluxe edition because Do Ya Thing is too good to miss. My Favourite songs are

1.You Da One
2.Where Have You Been
3.Talk That Talk
4.Cockiness
5.Birthday Cake
6.Watch n Learn
7.Red Lipstick
8.Farewell

In fact, I think I just love the whole album. PS I still love Loud and think it is a Brilliant album, Talk That Talk is just different, and brilliant ha ha! Love ya Rihanna Keep Doin Ya Thing Girl, You Da One I Think About All Dayyyyyyyyyyy!!!

Rihanna's latest album 'Talk That Talk' is a predictable affair, and doesn't quite live up to the hype of her last few albums like 'Good Girl Gone Bad' and 'Rated R'. But even with the tried-and-tested album formula, there are still some club-banger songs and catchy melodies, making it an altogether enjoyable, but not exceptional album.

''You Da One'' - The album kicks off with one of the lesser songs, It's sugary sweet, but not in a good way. It's repetitive and soon gets very dull and boring, something you can't usually say about a Rihanna single. The fact that it's one of her only singles in recent times to not even hit the top 20 says it all.
''Where Have You Been'' - The second track is thankfully much more enjoyable, it has a mash of trance and dance-beats and electronic effects mixed with a strong vocal by Rihanna that make it almost perfect for club-play. Expect this one to be a single at some point in the future.
''We Found Love'' - Third is the album's first smash single, again with Calvin Harris, which is still hovering around the number 01 spot weeks after it's release. One of the best dance songs Rihanna has recorded, it's simple but infectious and the best song on the album by a long shot.
''Talk that Talk'' - The title track comes next, with Jay-Z making a guest appearance. The rap isn't exactly memorable, but it's bad either, and the song moves along nicely, while still not being quite what you'd expect from Rihanna.
''Cockiness (I love it)'' - Mixed feelings about this one. The beat is fantastic, frenetic and quite Beyonce-like, but the lyrics are a let down. They're sexual in an overly explicit way, and come across as just vulgar rather than sexy.

But as with Loud not enough time was given to creating it and it ends up feeling rushed halfhearted and lazy. It has it's moments and does shine on songs such as We Found love, Where Have You Been, Drunk On Love, Red Lipstick where she takes risks and creates different sounds but again not enough time was given into making them amazing not just good. Another issue is the constant ramming in your face innuendo, smut, sleaze, and sex sex sex i have no problem with it but whn done in such a way that she might aswell just spit it out and say ti it becomes tedious and pathetic and if she had held back again could have been good not. so all in all an album that could have and should have been a great pop album even genre defining and a classic but alas she rushed it and you definitely get that from Talk That Talk.
