4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 11 2009
Format: Audio CD
She's in a murderous mood for sure, which is why at a certain point I began referencing the artist by a new, more fitting nickname: "Rihannoir." Lyrically, Rihanna has all but rejected the meaningless dance floor romps to ballsy statements and sarcastic jibes.

Distrust and hurt is written largely on a number of the tracks here (given that she doesn't write most her own material, she has to find others to voice her anger and frustration). It is impossible to listen to many of the songs on "Rated R"--such as "Cold Case Love" (a highlight co-written by Justin Timberlake) or "Stupid in Love"-- and not filter them through that horrific context whether that is how they are meant to be heard or not. For example, first single "Russian Roulette," which we reviewed extensively for all its gunplay, is more about the psycho-sexual drama of being in a damaging relationship. The firearm motif continues on "G4L," which apparently stands for "Gangsta for Life." On the roughest of cuts, including the menacingly paced "G4L," Rihanna let's loose a deluge of blood-chilling statements: "I lick the gun when I'm done, 'cause I know that revenge is sweet." To tell you the truth my eyebrows raise on that statement along with the other stuff that was coming out of her mouth. Like "Russian Roulette," the song has a certain grinding, sensual mid-tempo rhythm that recalls a Shirley Bassey-era James Bond theme.

Yes, there is a world of difference between playing out some revenge fantasy in song and hitting someone in real life--and we are in no way suggesting otherwise-- but it can be a fine line to delicately walk between being both the totally innocent victim and the perpetrator, both of which she plays on "Rated R." On "Rude Boy," she tells her lover, "I like the way you pull my hair.

Our golden girl from Barbados with the platinum vocal cords and silver vibrato has left reggae far behind in this album. The intro number - Mad House - is reminiscent of Emerson, Lake, and Palmers' Karn Evil. From there, it slows down to a sexy, sultry, seductive bump and grind by a master manipulator for the rest of the album. And she gets away with it, too, like the pro that she is. African rhythm. Middle East flavour. Some violin. She wants to make love to you with your hands tied, and she lets you know it - and grow it. Only three words in Rockstar 101 are squelched down to zero point frequency, like a DJ bringing the platter matter down to a grinding halt with his hand. (Pretty handy trick. Wonder if it works on Rihanna. If it does, let me know.) And you still know what those words are. If you don't, you can look them up in your dictionary. While you're at it, look up her number in your telephone book, and ask her to join you for a cocktail or two. You know what I mean. A party for two. (Shania's got your number, too. Be careful. You might get lucky. Twice. In one night.)

Good night. Good luck. Sleep tight. (Well, maybe it's too late for that.)

Rudy Wes said it all in previous review, nice review. Rihanna~Rated R starts with some nice hard rock, gets you rocking. Bam sexy and rythmic to your soul. I put this cd in my car 6 weeks ago, just before I took a 1200 km trip, and I'm still loving it! Best cd I've got. My wife wanted to hate it, but it grew on her and she loves it to. Buy it, Rihanna seems to be a nice girl who is deserving of our adorations!
