  1. Rihanna works with edgier and wittier verse than on her two previous albums.
  2. Beyonce's superstar status is not in danger, but she should hand her A&R man a copy of this album.
  3. An unexpectedly varied and satisfying listen.
  4. Frankly, any track from this set could work as a single.
  5. Lyrics are once again an Achilles high heel for Rihanna.
  6. Good Girl never settles on a sound, and Rihanna vacillates between aping Gretchen Wilson, Ashanti, Gwen Stefani, and Pink. Nonetheless, she often sounds every bit like the superstar she clearly intends to be.
  7. Truly, this is music for the ringtone generation.

Una canción pop dance que es uno de los mayores éxitos de Rihanna. El fuerte de la pista son los estribillo, son muy pegadizos y comerciales, cada vez que la escucho no me puedo sacar de la cabeza los ella ella... La canción me encanta y creo que es de mis favoritas de Rihanna, su voz tan profunda y oscura pero a la vez llena de fuerza en un estribillo fantástico. De las mejores canciones de Rihanna y yo diría que una canción muy representativa de la década. Además fue la que llevo a Rihanna al gran éxito.. Expand

    unlike other users who've rated this zero based on Umbrella without listening to the album, i've listened to it start to finish and unlike other users who've rated this zero based on Umbrella without listening to the album, i've listened to it start to finish and it's great, only one dud track and that's the bland 'Say It'. Rihanna may not have the best voice, but she knows how to work what she's got, especially on guaranteed hits (and next singles) Shut Up And Drive, and Don't Stop The Music. Even the slower songs work well, with Rehab and Good Girl Gone Bad being among the best tracks on the CD. This is the kind of album that the likes of Beyonce should be making but aren't, and Rihanna's edging ahead of them, in terms of music quality anyway. Expand

Variando entre os gêneros do R&B e do Hip-Hop, o álbum em si é recheado de pontos fortes. Em cada uma das 15 faixas, Rihanna apresenta composições simples, porém bem trabalhadas, além de ritmos espontâneos e pegajosos. Sendo o hit “Umbrella” o abre alas do CD, a tendência de gerarmos grandes expectativas é inevitável, e felizmente Rihanna as corresponde magnificamente. “Breakin’ dishes”, “Don’t stop the music”, e as faixas do pós relançamento, “Disturbia” e “Take a bow”, são alguns dos vários motivos que fazem o disco realmente valer a pena. Somente em “Questing existing” e em “If i never see your face again” a barbadiana deixa um pouquinho a desejar, porém nada alarmante o suficiente a ponto de tirar a integridade do álbum. Contudo, “Good girl gone bad” possui um charme esplendorosamente atraente o suficiente para convencer jovens e adultos com temas variando entre carros, guarda-chuvas e alguns conflitos amorosos.
