All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Loud, Rihanna's fifth studio album, is a significant change of pace from 2009's platinum Rated R. While much of Rated R was a cathartic and dark, Loud is relatively lighthearted and geared for dancefloors. It's led by the sleek, euphoric, and up-front "Only Girl (In the World)," produced by StarGate. Overall, the album efficiently balances Rihanna's playful and sinister sides. One song that sounds nothing like anything else in her past is "Skin," a contender for anti-gravity slow jam of the year. The album also features collaborations with Timbaland, Taio Cruz, Alex da Kid, Drake, Sean Garrett, and Ne-Yo.

    Great Songs by Rihanna

    "Loud" by Rihanna is very fun to listen to. The songs on this "Loud" collection are up-tempo and enjoyable to listen to. My favorite song on this collection by Rihanna is "Cheers (Drink to That)" with Avril Lavigne. I enjoyed the "Cheers" song because it sent a message to strive to be happy and have fun regardless of what others think or say about you. This meaning is essential to hear because it is more beneficial for overall well-being to avoid concerning oneself with what others may think of them. I say this more from a more aware perspective because I have personally found that others are going to think and/or say whatever they want regardless of personal joy level. Therefore, living your life towards what feels joyful is more important than being concerned about gossip. The "Cheers" musical track communicates this theme very well. "Loud" by Rihanna is great to get if you enjoy any of Rihanna's songs, especially "Umbrella" and/or "Drive". This is due to the fact that Rihanna's music on this cd is in the same upbeat spirit as those two songs.
