Not Quite Loud Enough…

Damn, you post scheduler… you were supposed to post this post yesterday – damn you *shakes fist*

Anyway, Rihanna’s new album ‘Loud’ is available this week… her fifth long player follows hot on the heels of last years magnificent and stunningly good ‘Rated R’. It’s a tough album to follow so how does ‘Loud’ fare and is it any good?

Well, it’s okay! There are a number of great songs on offer such the exciting ‘S&M’, the addictive ‘What’s My Name?’, the glorious ‘Fading’ and the incredible ‘Man Down’. However, as a whole record we’re not crazy about it YET unfortunately as some of the tracks on offer are a bit dull and snooze inducing, in particular ‘Love The Way You Lie (Part II)’, ‘Skin’ and ‘Cheers (Drink To That)’ probably due to the unnecessary and annoying Avril Lavigne sample.

Anyway, it’s still a million times better than some albums released within the past few weeks, mentioning no names of course! One of the highlights from the album, ‘What’s My Name?’ now has a rather cute and colourful video for the whole world to enjoy and sing-a-long to – altogether now… “ooh na na – what’s my name”
