For the most part, I really like this album. The four stars aren’t meant to be ironic.
And, I’ve never written about pop music in any significant capacity before reviewing Loud, but found myself really enjoying the process. Perhaps there will be more of this to come.
Elsewhere: Here you’ll find a pretty decent dubstep remix of the inevitably ubiquitous “Only Girl in the World.” My mind’s not blown, but it works.
