She's a great artist as a whole, but this is definitely not her best album. There are, however, a lot of catchy songs on this album. Selena Gomez also has a great voice. Maybe buy her newer album instead?

1. "Round & Round" 10/10 - Perfect choice for a lead single and a fun dance track. Would be a great addition to party playlists.
2. "A Year Without Rain" 9/10 - Great choice for a second single and an awesome ballad.
3. "Rock God" 7/10 - A decent dance track. The way she sings the first verse is a little weird, but the rest of it is performed well.
4. "Off the Chain" 10/10 - Makes you wanna get up and dance. Had the potential to become a single. Also would be a great addition to party playlists.
5. "Summer's Not Hot" 10/10 - Great summer anthem. Also had the potential to become a single.
6. "Intuition" (featuring Eric Bellinger) 8/10 - Another great track and Eric's rap section was a good addition. The only bad thing about this track is Selena's auto tuned vocals. Also had the potential to become a single.
7. "Spotlight" 7/10 - Not the best, but certainly not the worst. The lyrical content is good, but the chorus can at times be a little annoying.
8. "Ghost of You" 9/10 - Another great ballad. Also had the potential to become a single.
9. "Sick of You" 10/10 - A great dance track. Perfect for the clubs. Also had the potential to become a single.
10. "Live Like There's No Tomorrow" 8/10 - This song was issued as a promotional single to create buzz for Selena's first major motion picture Ramona & Beezus. I guess it was a good album closer, but if I did the album track listing, this would've been the second track and "A Year Without Rain" would be the closing track.
Overall, it's a great pop, dance and electronic album. Needless to say, Selena steers clear of the sophomore slump with this album. Perfect choice to play at house parties and nightclubs.
I can turn this on and have the album playing just as "background noise", not really paying attention to it or truly listening to it. But it just is not an album that I'm going to listen to frequently, and with the exception of a couple songs most of them are not songs I'd sing along with or anything. It's just something so that there is some noise in the house to keep things from being too quiet. It's good upbeat music at least, even if the lyrics are not necessarily that great.
Round & Round (7/10): I don't like the bridge in this one, but it was the obvious first single choice.
A Year Without Rain (5/10): I don't really care for this song and don't understand the love for it, her vocals aren't good.
Rock God (8/10): Here's a track where her vocals shine, it's spunky with a lot of attitude.
Off The Chain (10/10): A career high for Selena, this song is dreamy & enticing while being irresistibly catchy.
Summer's Not Hot (8/10): The production on this track is a bit cheap-sounding, but the lyrics are campy and it's cute.
Intuition (8/10): I really like the instrumental for this song, but Eric Bellinger's part was unneeded.
Spotlight (5/10): Here's another filler track I could do without. It sounds like an unfinished demo.
Ghost of You (9/10): This song is really beautiful & you can hear the emotion in Selena's voice.
Sick of You (8/10): Very generic, but she makes it work and it's undeniably memorable.
Live Like There's No Tomorrow (9/10): This song has an amazing chorus and is very good for a soundtrack single tacked onto the end of a studio album.
Overall, I'd give this album 4.5 stars if I could. It has some lows but the highs are pretty great.
