A Brighter, Bolder and Louder Rihanna.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Loud (Audio CD)
A brighter, happier and poppier Rihanna is present on Loud. The dark snarling synths and hip-hop edge of Rated R is gone in favour of a brighter, brasher rihanna dabbling in pop, dancehall, reggae, and EDM. But it's less consistent less experimental than Rated R, less fun and catchy than Good Girl Gone Bad. Yes the hits are amazing and keep the album from falling too far into boring but it is padded by so so filler that does keep the overall album from excelling. That said it is still a solid album worth a listen and ranks as one of her most mainstream if not interesting listens.
