Overview

Just when it seemed 2009's trash-brat electro scene (3OH!3, LMFAO, Shwayze) was about to crumble under its own weight, rapper/singer/songwriter Kesha became the genre's biggest star, graduating from being Flo Rida's backup singer (she provided the hook on the rapper's massive single "Right Round") to superstar when her debut single, "TiK ToK," set a digital sales record with over 600,000 downloads in a week. Her climb to the top includes bizarre factoids like she once lived in the house where the Eagles recorded Hotel California, plus she once vomited in Paris Hilton's closet. Working on Hilton's album was the reason she was at the house, so it's hard not to appreciate how Animal makes Kesha sound nothing like an industry vet who used to write for the Veronicas. Here she's a gum-snapping, alcohol-abusing Facebook jockey straight out of the suburbs, who spits sophomoric but fun putdowns, come-ons, and sig files all over electro beats. Opening with "Maybe I need some rehab/Or maybe just need some sleep," Animal is up front about its unwillingness to face the real world, and prefers a garbage chic reality with a liberal shot of the '80s. "Party at a Rich Dude's House" could have fallen off the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack, while the word "gross" makes a serious comeback throughout the album. The music is heavy on gimmicks -- Auto-Tune, vocoders, and silly samples are all in abundance -- while able folks like Dr. Luke, plus Mim and Liv Nervo, are in charge of the colorful electro-pop productions. With so many fun, "TiK ToK"-type tracks, Animal is recommended for both brats and the bratty at heart. [The Deluxe Edition added a second disc with remixes and videos.]

I heard the song by kesha called tik tok and I thought about getting her album when it came out, I thought tik tok would only be the only song that I liked on her cd but actually I like just about every song on here, Kesha has cool danceable songs on her album, I like the songs your love is my drug, tik tok, take it off, kiss n tell, stephen, blah blah blah, hungover, party at a rich dudes house, blind, dinosaur, dancing with tears in my eyes, boots and boys and animal. Kesha might talk in most of her songs but it sounds fun and robotic.

This cd is REALLY good, especially for dance music (and I'm not just talking about clubs). I dance and her songs would be really good for jazz...oo0o0o really good for jazz dances. Anyway, her songs will cheer you up if you're having a stressed or generally bad day! I like soft, soulful, meaningful music like John Mayer and Racheal Yamagata and others no one knows about. I just like the good music from all genres and Kesha is definetly one of my favorites now in pop/hip hop and I'm picky with these types of music; I only like 2 songs from Cobra Starship, a few by Lady Gaga, and almost all from Kesha so she's really good and this cd is worth the price!??

i love this album. It just makes you want to get up and dance. Her voice is semi-robotic in most of the songs but that doesn't mean that she can't sing. She reminds me of Lady Gaga but less eccentric. She has had to work her way up and life is just starting to work out for her. So she wants to part and celebrate. She just wants to live life and not have to care for the consequences. It's just a really feel good album.
