  1. Rihanna works with edgier and wittier verse than on her two previous albums.
  2. Beyonce's superstar status is not in danger, but she should hand her A&R man a copy of this album.
  3. An unexpectedly varied and satisfying listen.
  4. Frankly, any track from this set could work as a single.
  5. Lyrics are once again an Achilles high heel for Rihanna.
  6. Good Girl never settles on a sound, and Rihanna vacillates between aping Gretchen Wilson, Ashanti, Gwen Stefani, and Pink. Nonetheless, she often sounds every bit like the superstar she clearly intends to be.
  7. Truly, this is music for the ringtone generation.

    Seriously, this is one of the best, if not the best album of 2007. All but two of the songs of this album are great, catchy songs, worthy on Seriously, this is one of the best, if not the best album of 2007. All but two of the songs of this album are great, catchy songs, worthy on anybody's portable music player!!! Rihanna really knows how to make a good album. Even the slower songs like "Lemme Get That", "Rehab", and "Good Girl Gone Bad", she still seems to make interesting and entertaining!! Expand

    I think people are afraid to give Rihanna the credit she deserves. This is surprisingly a great album, made even more impressive when you I think people are afraid to give Rihanna the credit she deserves. This is surprisingly a great album, made even more impressive when you realize how far she has come in 2 years. Umbrella, Breakin' Dishes, and Sell Me Candy are my songs for the summer. Whatever critics may think. Expand

    "Umbrella", the song, after which I started being totally obsessed with the girl from Barbados island.
    This album is pretty much fine,
    "Umbrella", the song, after which I started being totally obsessed with the girl from Barbados island.
    This album is pretty much fine, excluding the most irritating song by Rihanna so far "Push Up On Me". I just hate this track .The reason why I think so is that however it is not bad production, Rihanna's interpretation and vocal are childish. "Say It", the case is repeating in some measure. Actually, her voice during the whole album is sugary xD
