    By stomping just at the edge of parental propriety and sneaking in (mostly) well-crafted lyrics, her new record confirms her place as the loosest of the dance divas, one who not only preaches on the art of the party like few since Andrew W.K., but who also delivers the message through inventive, beat-heavy musical cannonballs, most produced by hitmaker Dr. Luke, that pummel with pleasure.

    It's a wall-to-wall party for the freaks, burnouts, outcasts, and misfits and if you don't get it that's your fault, not hers.

    Anyone up for giving her a second chance--or recognizing she has actual singing, writing, and performing talent--just might be pleasantly surprised.

    Taken as a whole, this is another surprisingly enjoyable album from a pop singer who has managed to broaden her approach without losing her USP.

    There's no revelation here, only strong fun.

    Warrior, a moderate improvement of her disappointing debut Animal. [Jan 2013, p.106]

    Auto-Tune, deployed all over the record, turns Kesha's voice into a robo-squawk, and not in a good way.

    Best album from Ke$ha without doubt ! Each song really shows who she is ... Warrior, Crazy Kids, Love Into the Light and Past Lives: theseBest album from Ke$ha without doubt ! Each song really shows who she is ... Warrior, Crazy Kids, Love Into the Light and Past Lives: these tracks are those that relate more to the personality of the singer and this time the fans really had a greater perspective about Ke$ha. Amazing record, perfectly blending the styles ''rock'', ''country'' and ''dance pop'', masterpiece ! Expand

    Ke$ha is back, and better than ever, with her critically acclaimed sophomore album, "Warrior". This record, which features a duet with IggyKe$ha is back, and better than ever, with her critically acclaimed sophomore album, "Warrior". This record, which features a duet with Iggy Pop, not only makes you want to sing along, but dance along too! With lyrics that discuss self-empowerment and love, the album incorporates dance-pop and electropop styles with elements of electronic rock and hip hop.

    Track-by-Track Review:
    1. "Warrior" 9/10; one of the best ways to start an album is with a fantastic track, like this
    2. "Die Young" 10/10; the lead single from Ke$ha's second album, "Warrior", is a fantastic mix of electropop and '70s rock
    3. "C'Mon" 9/10; the second single from the album is a song that makes everyone want to sing along
    4. "Thinking of You" 10/10; a terrific track that showcases a break-up
    5. "Crazy Kids" 10/10; the second best song on the album
    6. "Wherever You Are" 8/10; a great song, but not anything that's too special
    7. "Dirty Love" 10/10; with verses from both Ke$ha and Iggy Pop, this is indeed the best track on the record
    8. "Wonderland" 9/10; an amazing song that is so different from Ke$ha's other material
    9. "Only Wanna Dance with You" 10/10; a wonderful song that takes you back to the '80s
    10. "Supernatural" 10/10; words can't even explain this song
    11. "All That Matters (The Beautiful Life)" 10/10; 'baby all that matters' is this song
    12. "Love Into the Love" 9/10; what a perfect way to end the album

    Great album with great duets. Begins with Kesha doing what he does best and then plunges into a world of references. With hints of ClassicGreat album with great duets. Begins with Kesha doing what he does best and then plunges into a world of references. With hints of Classic Rock, indie rock, electronic and intimate with few tracks, is the most diverse of Kesha before. And definitely the level of letters greatly improved.

    Highlight for Crazy Kids, Supernatural, Dirty Love and I Only Wanna Dance With You But of the title track to Last Goodbye, no disappoints.

Ke$ha brought out the big guns on this one and didn't look back, I personally was not aware that she had talent of this magnitude. I hate to bring up an artist's past when judging a new album, but i was not expecting much when reluctantly digging into this piece of work; next thing i know i was humming along, as well as my son, on the first playback to several songs. Sure she can get a bit sexual into some songs, but it is not as bad as her past work. This album gives everyone, even the old and grumpy hags, a peak inside the world of young love, fast life, and just how to have fun wherever you are. Makes everyone want to say " is it summer yet?" standout tracks; "c'mon", "wherever you are", and "thinking of you". also AVOID "crazy kids" around children. awesome tune but drops F bomb constantly Expand
