    This album is a huge letdown compared to her debut "In A Perfect World...". A lot of the material in the album sounds a lot like what Rihanna has already done. Also, the cohesion between each song is very poorly linked. The only good songs, in my opinion, are "Pretty Girl Rock", and "One Night Stand". "Lose Control", in my opinion, is a poor remake of Rihanna's "What's My Name". I wasThis album is a huge letdown compared to her debut "In A Perfect World...".

I was shocked when listened to "The Way You Love Me". It is very oversexed, and her chanting "F*** me, f*** me" sounds very strange. Expand

    There are a few tasty future-pop moments, but mainly it's predictable r&b, weighed down with tiresome, ersatz sexiness.

    Her second album is hit-or-miss, with failed attempts at pop crossover (the Timbaland collabo "Breaking Point") and sub-Rihanna reggae moves. Still, the high points are worth digging out.

    Impressive, then, that this boy-army, one-girl team was able to pull off a contemporary R&B album so feminine, breezy and thankfully low on ballads.
