I'm not afraid to jam this with my windows down. Bottom half is great.

I was a fan of some of her covers, but idk her bad enunciation skills really get to me so I'm not totally sold yet.

edit: and now that I probably sound like a total hater, I'm really confused about what is going on with her arms on that artwork.

My experience with this album so far are two horrendous guest vocalists and one mediocre song with repetition of the word baby comparable to Bieber. I feel like I should take a closer look with in open mind, but it's gonna be really hard.

Pretty solid review, but I'm bewildered by the pot shot at Timberlake as a trendhopper, but crediting Ariana as a sincere devotee. Just seemed really random.

Does it come off that way? I wasn't trying to say that he is because obviously he's not. It was more of a "JT made this sound slick and popular but Ari isn't just copying him." I had to switch around that paragraph a bit so it might have gotten a little murky.

edit: damn lol it does sound like i'm shitting on JT, totally not my intention at all. whoops.

I don't get the buzz behind her, she is obviously attractive and can sing but she sounds like all the other young female pop vocalists to me.

I'd agree with that 7, but if you start skipping Popular Song it jumps to a 8.5 easy, getting to 9 territory. Should've done Pink Champagne!

That's like me saying all the metalcore bands you like are exactly the same. C'mon man, you know its not true your exposure is just too low. Her vibe is mad different from other big stars right now.

I just don't like this girl or her songs one bit. No clue why. Big pop music fan.

EDIT: Upon further thought I think it's how feeble and dainty she sounds. Just not my style. Too cutesy. Also, vocal runs are annoying. They're like sung out cock rock solos to me.

I agree. She has the pipes and a fantastic range but it sounds like she's intentionally singing in an airy fashion. Feeble is a good descriptor.

Nice review though Ryan

she isn't constantly singing in an airy fashion though. only at certain points and its done for texture, which works.
