Loud无疑是在GGGB与RR中一个平衡 回归GGGB热闹的流行舞曲并兼顾了RR中大胆露骨的形象 这对于一个宣称要做坏女孩儿的歌手无疑是吸引众人眼球的最好方法 三首Feat的曲目并没有喧宾夺主的印象 反而让人对Rihanna对歌曲的掌控能力刮目相看 这一点尤其表现在Love The Way You Lie Part II中的深情演绎； Cheers (Drink To That)中Avirl式的采样 和 Fading类似Enya New Age风格的开头着实有趣 诸如此类的创新风格让整张专辑在不失流行性的同时也提高了专辑的口碑
RS Review 3/5 By Melissa Maerz NOVEMBER 16, 2010 Call it How Rihanna Got Her Groove Back: Clearly over her abusive ex, she leaves behind the tortured mood of 2009's Rated R in order to pound Jameson shots and table-dance at Coyote Ugly. "Life's too short to be sittin' round miserable," she sings on "Cheers (Drink to That)," and with these digital-pop party tracks, it's easy to believe her. When she's not power-clubbing with Drake and Nicki Minaj or dancing to warm island riddims, she's so serene, she even gets away with sampling Enya on "Fading." Maybe the good girl gone bad is getting better?
