    What's left, then, is a collection of 11 shinily produced pop songs that find Gomez trying on a series of different personalities with her slight-yet-capable vocals.

    Thanks to the strong songs, Selena's reliably strong vocals, and the variety of sounds, it adds up to be another fine entry in her catalog and just another example of why Selena Gomez is one of the best pop stars making music in 2013.

    The whirring Stars Dance is a confident but not aggressively blatant move to a more grown-up pop playing field.

    From the electro-punk opener Birthday onward, she's competent and entirely impersonal. But that's no impediment to enjoying the record, which darts efficiently from EDM to Bollywood to--Beliebers, look away now--sappiness inspired by her on-off boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

    Though she nods at Rihanna-style slither and Britney-esque grind, this is the sound of Gomez gliding gracefully into adulthood.

    Other than the sultry Stars Dance, much of this sounds like songs Rihanna rejected.
  7. It's a pop record, which means one killer track would redeem everything. Predictably enough, it never comes.

With good vocals, very catchy tunes and two amazing singles released before hand Selena has really outdone herself proving that she is definitely one of the leading pop stars of 2013. The album itself is very diverse, with Like A Champion having a jamaican vibe to it, to Come And Get It with a hindi tune to the dance heavy B.E.A.T and Birthday to the more intimate Love Will Remember and Nobody Does It Like You to hopefully the albums next single Save The Day. The album has a great resemblance to a Shakira or perhaps Rihanna album and is definitely worth the wait! Expand

    Selena Gomez' latest is evidently a dance oriented work, with no further intentions, and I have to say that it fills the expectations. TheSelena Gomez' latest is evidently a dance oriented work, with no further intentions, and I have to say that it fills the expectations. The most important thing of this album is something that lacks in others: balance. Plus, the songs are well-sequenced, which gives the album some extra points. Songs are funny, despite the massive use of autotune. You can listen the album from beginning to end easily. "Come and get it", "Save the day" and "Music feels better" (this last one with a slight eighties touch) are catchy, and that's more than you can ask from a Selena Gomez album. The production is also clean, and finally, this maybe is not a great album, miss Gomez vocals are not the best in industry,. but ithis work shows more pros than cons and that's why I'll give this release a positive score.

However, to me, this album just lacks a whole lot ofAdmittedly, it is evident that Selena Gomez has grown from her previous album. However, to me, this album just lacks a whole lot of authenticity. Sure, the songs are great to dance to, and most of them are pretty catchy, but is this album memorable? Sadly, no. Furthermore, the heavy-reliance on production was a little disappointing; I would have loved to hear Selena's raw voice instead of computers singing for her. The problem with this is that her live performances become let-downs, because she is incapable of efficiently showcasing her vocals. Selena has such a lovely voice, but her soft voice is all masked away. In saying that, if Selena chooses to venture out more in music in the future, hopefully she can lose the electronic feel and try something more acoustic. Stand-outs are Come & Get It, Save The Day and Like A Champion. Expand

    Que álbum terrível, Selena Gomez não tem um mínimo de talento como cantora e acho ela uma atriz tão sem graça, por favor que músicas chatasQue álbum terrível, Selena Gomez não tem um mínimo de talento como cantora e acho ela uma atriz tão sem graça, por favor que músicas chatas assim como as de todos os seus álbuns com o The Scene, credo, uma das piores artistas de hoje.
