Unapologetic (Edited)

About this item

In 2012, right on schedule, Rihanna delivered her fourth annual November album. The singer took a different route with the lead single. She didn't go with a dramatic ballad like "Russian Roulette" or a big dance number like "Only Girl (In the World)" and "We Found Love." Instead, the nod went to a midtempo pop ballad, "Diamonds" -- as in "We're like diamonds in the sky" (rather than stars in a mine), a simple and effective, light in meaning yet massive in sonics, quasi-processional. Even with that change of pace, the possibility of it signaling an overall change in direction was slight. Not only is Unapologetic just as varied as Rihanna's past albums -- it's another timely refresh of contemporary pop music -- but it's a little more exploratory and a whole lot deeper, too. Continuing the trend that began on Rated R, Rihanna's at her best when she's flaunting. This goes for "Pour It Up," a characteristically chilly and booming Mike Will collaboration that might as well be a sequel to "Bandz a Make Her Dance," the producer's hit with Juicy J. Wrapped in a serene sneer, Rihanna's trash talk is something else. Moments such as that one are so convincing that the few everywoman heart-on-sleeve songs -- with the exception of the massive, slamming, wailing power ballad that is "What Now" -- don't sound all that natural. Two of the album's most intriguing, contrasting, and not-so-everywoman tracks appear consecutively during the latter half. Both of them were written and produced by Terius "The-Dream" Nash and Carlos "Los" McKinney. "Nobody's Business," flecked with elements from Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel," is a beaming if somewhat belligerent disco-house duet with Chris Brown. Rihanna's partner proposes to make out in a Lexus prior to proclaiming that the relationship "ain't nobody's business." The celebration is followed by "Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary," conjoined songs with a wide theatrical scope akin to that of the-Dream's own "Nikki, Pt. 2/Abyss." Over a swelling and receding production with echoes of Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis' Eyes," Rihanna mourns ("Felt like love struck me in the night/I pray that love don't strike twice"), then confesses ("Mother Mary, I swear I wanna change"), then surrenders ("I'm prepared to die in the moment"). Perhaps no one should read anything into it. The same could be said of "No Love Allowed," which comes along a little later. Even with a captivating, drum-less reggae groove, it's hard to hear lines like "Your love hit me to the core" and "It's so foolish how you keep me wanting more" and think that she's fine and could be singing about anyone. While this is a fine, if uneven album, the only way to enjoy a significant portion of it is by taking it as pure entertainment. Good luck.

Rihanna’s Victorious Musical Reign

Customer review by wisdomseeker1980

5.0 stars by wisdomseeker1980

Let me start off by saying that I enjoyed “Talk That Talk” by Rihanna, but I unexpectedly like “Unapologetic” even more. She really made a creative effort in creating songs that convey a kaleidoscope of emotions while still preserving valiant musical undertones. Obviously, millions of Rihanna listeners already have the songs in mind that resonate with them the most. I would have to humbly list the following songs as the ones that gave me a feeling of a party for the mind: “Phresh Out The Runway”, “Numb” (featuring Eminem), “Pour It Up”, “What Now”, “Loveeeeeee Song” (featuring Future), “Jump”, “Right Now” (featuring David Guetta), and “Nobody’s Business” (featuring Chris Brown). I also decided to download a couple of tracks from her deluxe edition and really enjoyed “Half Of Me” and the remix of “Diamonds” (Dave Aude 100 Extended version). “Unapologetic” by Rihanna is best if you enjoy any of Rihanna’s previous music and/or music genres that mix R&B with both electronica and dance elements.
