    Rihanna’s most intriguing project yet, even if there’s no clear smash amongst its 13 tracks. In many ways it’s her most deliberately uncommercial album yet, but don’t let the low-key THC vibes fool you: every harmony, drum beat, and transition on Anti is painstakingly finessed.

    By the end of Anti, Rihanna may not arrive at any definitive conclusions about her art but she's allowed herself to be unguarded and anti-commercial, resulting in her most compelling record to date.

    It's confusing, with flaky endings and mood swings, and an utterly compelling mix of not caring at all and desperately caring. [Apr 2016, p.87]

    What we have instead is a brooding, oddly sequenced, and scattered collection that defies easy categorization.

    As a whole, Anti might not be as provocative of a statement as Rihanna hopes for it to be, but it’s still fascinating to see an artist in the midst of a metamorphosis.

    With its sense of unease, quiet, and longing, much of Anti is unlikely to grab ears on first listen or play well to Rihanna’s broadest base of fans. But it is an interesting artistic curveball in her heretofore hits-driven career.

    Sadly, with Anti the intent and promise is more admirable than the end result. There’s a certain dreary joylessness to it that saps any energy the songs might possess.

    Totalmente inesperado e diferente de tudo que Rihanna já fez. Conceitual, boas batidas, boas construções harmonicas. Valeu bastante esperarTotalmente inesperado e diferente de tudo que Rihanna já fez. Conceitual, boas batidas, boas construções harmonicas. Valeu bastante esperar por esse tempo para ouvir um álbum com tamanha qualidade como musicas como Kiss It Better, Love on the Brain e Higher. Rihanna terá que lutar agora, mais do que nunca para se superar cada vez mais. Expand
