All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
When you've released a pair of albums containing a few monster singles and a considerable amount of unsteady, unassured material, why mess around the third time out? From beginning to end, Good Girl Gone Bad is as pop as pop gets in 2007, each one of its 12 songs a potential hit in some territory. Unlike Music of the Sun or A Girl Like Me, neither Caribbean flavorings nor ballad ODs are part of the script, and there isn't an attempt to make something as theatrical as "Unfaithful." There is, however, another '80s hit involved: just as "SOS" appropriated Soft Cell's version of "Tainted Love," "Shut Up and Drive" turns New Order's "Blue Monday" into a sleek, forthcoming ...

Unlike Music of the Sun or A Girl Like Me, neither Caribbean flavorings nor ballad ODs are part of the script, and there isn't an attempt to make something as theatrical as "Unfaithful." There is, however, another '80s hit involved: just as "SOS" appropriated Soft Cell's version of "Tainted Love," "Shut Up and Drive" turns New Order's "Blue Monday" into a sleek, forthcoming proposition, one that is as undeniable and rocking as Sugababes' 2002 U.K. smash "Freak Like Me" a cover of Adina Howard's 1995 hit that swiped from another '80s single, Gary Numan's "Are Friends Electric?". "Shut Up and Drive" is part of an all-upbeat opening sequence that carries through five songs. Rihanna knows exactly what she wants and is in total control at all times, even when she's throwing things and proclaiming "I'm a fight a man" amid marching percussion and synthesizers set on "scare" during "Breakin' Dishes." The album's lead song and lead single, "Umbrella," is her best to date, delivering mammoth if spacious drums, a towering backdrop during the chorus, and vocals that are somehow totally convincing without sounding all that impassioned -- an ideal spot between trying too hard and boredom, like she might've been on her 20th take, which only adds to the song's charm. The album's second half is relatively varied and a little heavier on acoustic guitar use, but it's not lacking additional standouts. Three consecutive Timbaland productions, including one suited for a black college marching band and another that effectively pulls the romantically codependent heartstrings, enhance the album rather than make it more scattered.

    This one brought me back to today

    I'm 44...straight up classic rock, some Luther, Sade...I wasn't even listening to anything after 80s U2. This CD changed that. It's in my player right alongside Zepplin, Stones, The Who, Dylan and others. I'm reborn!

    Wasn't expecting it...

    When I first saw Rihanna's video for "Umbrella," I had to do a double take. I wasn't sure if it was really her. Not only did her style in fashion change, but her style in music did and I think it's for the better. I love almost all of her songs on "Good Girl Gone Bad." There are probably one or two songs that I don't really like, but I can listen to without wanting to go crazy. At first I wasn't really feeling the whole pop/ rock thing that she had going on, but the more songs I listened to, I realized that she was bringing something new to the music game. All of her songs are single material. I recommend this cd to anyone who likes hip hop, r&b, pop, or rock because you will find a variety of those genres on her album. Two thumbs up to Rihanna!!!

    Rihanna brings a whole new meaning to R&B!

    Rihanna has produced an outstanding third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, which is in my opinion her best one yet. She has really stepped up a knotch with her music, producing songs such as Breakin' Dishes, Shut Up and Drive, Rehab, and her all time hit Umbrella. Although being popular in the R&B genre alongside singers such as Beyonce Knowles and being a very young singer for that matter, Rihanna has shown that nothing stands in her way from being one of the best! WAY TO GO RIHANNA!

    Great Girl Still Great

    I thought I was going to dwell on the way she used to sound and be dissatified with her new sound. So WRONG! This cd is her best yet! I love every song on this cd. She walked out of shallow water and dove into the deep end and she is swimming! I love the consistence of this album and the delivery is wonderful. My fav songs are Breakin Dishes, Rehab, and Say It. I recommend this cd to everyone. Keep doing what you are doing Rihanna cuz I will be listening.

    I'll Stand Under her Umbrella

    It was back in 2005 that Rihanna dominated the summer charts with her dance hall hit, 'Pon De Replay' and it was only a year ago that she released two smash hits 'SOS' and 'Unfaithful' from her sophomore album 'A Girl Like Me'. Now, Rihanna's back with a new album, 'Good Girl Gone Bad'. Her third album in two years is going in a different direction with dance-pop songs like 'Don't Stop the Music' and 'Push Up On Me', the latter of which show s a more playful and sexual side of the Barbadian songstress. And of course, everyone knows 2007's BIGGEST song, 'Umbrella' featuring Jay-Z which is an absolutely brilliant combination of pop, r&b and even some tinges of rock. 'Sell Me Candy' is probably the best song on the disc, with a danceable, sexy feel, that just makes you want to get up and shake it.Two other Timbaland produced tracks, 'Lemme Get That' and 'Rehab', a nice r&b, pop jam are also standouts. As a matter of fact all the songs are standouts, even the weird and confessional, 'Question Existing'. Good Girl Gone Bad, is definitely one of the best albums of the year. Buy it and enjoy yourself. I know I will.

    She Hasn't Gone Bad, She's Just Gone Pop

    Rhianna has abandoned the Caribbean flavored sound that many are used to on her earlier releases, and moved into the mainstream pop scene head first. The only real hint of tropical hip-hop comes from tracks (8) "Sell Me Candy" and (9) "Lemmie Get That" which tells us that Rhianna is still Rhianna. "Good Girl Gone Bad" seems to develope late in the album, as the tracks become gritier and the rhythms become heavey but it doesn't hurt the CD one bit. It may take a little time for fans to ajust to her new sound, but there is no doubt that they will also embrace her new image.

    Good girl gone Great!!!!

    Rihanna's third album is a great effort. She is young, energetic, and is showing a little longevity. By the way Rihanna can't be trying to be Jamaican because she is not from jamaica. She is from Barbados and she is reppin' to the fullest.

    Rihanna: Good Girl Gone Bad With A Great Sound

    Okay... so she's doing something new, she's showing off an edgier side of her, but that's okay! She's growing up and she doesn't want the world to view her as this little innocent person who doesn't take risks. She's a woman now, and she's embracing it. Don't try to stop her from growing up. The new sound is amazing! I love Umbrella, it's catchy and it's something that sticks with you (which is a good thing!). I also love the video, it's artistic and sexy, how does it get better than that?
