    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.

    Apesar de ser um álbum sem muita identidade, é um álbum bem divertido e com qualidade

Selena is not that pretty little girl anymore. Now she's trying to be a woman, and she's doing it right. The album is so good and you feel like you're in a party all the time, but when starts "Love Will Remember" is like you remind all your love problems back. The only one song is not good is Write Your Name, but I still can listem to that. 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.

And it is her worst album. It includes bangers such as Come & Get It, Slow Down, Stars Dance, Love Will Remember or Undercover. However, the auto-tune on her voice is not helping, and it's not making the songs more "danceable". Expand
