Jul 22, 2013From 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.
Jul 23, 2013It is one of the best albums of the year! 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
Jul 29, 2013This album is fun, delightful, and enlightening. All music is dance, which blands it out a little nu ti enjoy the songs. If you're taking it on a real serious note then you have to get a hold of yourself. Of course its some pop crap but its enjoyable. There are only a couple of songs with very little amount of meaning but it directs more of the dance culture but its a feel good album. Her voice of course isn't great, and what we are listening to is nothing too are from a scale from 1 10 of inappropriateness for the youngins would be 4 or 5 depending on how you feel for your child's ears. Nothing explicit. No original content, but its for fun. Show some love and lighten up a little. Quality and production is cool. Vocals are below average.… Collapse
Oct 8, 2013Her debut album without her band, Selena Gomez and the Band, was released by Selena with a new, sexier, yet 'PG' rated image, which makes sense beause she is still with Disney when this album was released.
The tracklist of the album were okay for a debut album. The sexy opening song of the album, Birthday, seems to be a more 'PG' rated version of Rihanna's 'Birthday Cake', only the song is more catchier, more longer and the point of the song is there, it's about a freaking birthday. The closing song, Love Will Remember, is the best song to close this album. Even though it addresses to her ex, Justin Bieber, the electronic feel of the song does not feel emotional at all despite its catchiness.
There are not much highlights of the album which is disapointing. The highlights were Birthday and B.E.A.T., a sexy song that channels Dev.
The best highlight of the album was 'Forget Forever', which could have been a better lead single than its Indian music-inspired, Come and Get It.
Even though it's a great debut album from Selena Gomez, it lacked diversity in its production.… Expand
Dec 21, 2013Admittedly, 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
Oct 27, 2013This album sucks and Selena Gomez is the definition of no talent, pop star wanna be, look at me i am pretty and white therefore i can get whatever i want, let me date people more famous than me so i can move up in case system .
