REVIEWS
Average points: 3.92 (Reviews: 65)
******
Starke Dubstep Ballade! Der Refrain geht direkt ins Ohr. Als die Tracklist veröffentlicht wurde, habe ich von den Songs "Right Now" und "What Now" am wenigstens erwartet, da sie nicht sehr interessant klingen, aber da habe ich mich getäuscht. Beide Songs sind Knüller!
*****
Strong track with a very anthemic chorus (that slightly borders on generic, but who cares). Great vocal performance.
****
Uff, tönt jetzt noch etwas mühsam, aber da muss ich wohl öfters reinhören, dann gefällts mir hoffentlich besser. Vorerst gutgemeinte 3*

edit: Ok, die Strophen tönen wirklich sehr schlimm, doch der Refrain rettet nun die 4*
Last edited: 25.11.2012 11:48

Die schönen Piano-Strophen und der bombastische Dubstep-Refrain ergeben eine Mischung, die mit jedem Hören mehr ins Ohr geht und recht stimmig klingt. Ich mag es nur nicht, wenn es im Refrain zu schrill wird, wie es auch bei "California King Bed" der Fall war. Ansonsten ist der Song aber tiptop.

edit: Wie bei einigen anderen Songs muss ich meine ursprüngliche Note auch hier etwas nach unten korrigieren.
Last edited: 23.03.2013 15:29
***
Viel Geschrei, wenig Harmonie. Die Strophen sind ganz nett, der Rest mehr oder weniger misslungen.
****
immer noch nicht das was ich von ihr erwarte eine 4 sollte da reichen...

gefällt langsam ein wenig mehr, aber immer noch auf der 4*

schöne ballade aber nicht der rede wert
****
Geweldige beat waanzinnig hoe ze het toch iedere keer weer doet
***
Valt nog enigszins mee.
*****
gute Ballade, doch die 5 ist geschenkt
*****
Für mich ist das keine Ballade, sondern eine Dance-Nummer mit ruhigen Zwischenpassagen. Dub-Step-Dance nennt man das wohl. Wie dem auch sei - eines der stärksten Stücke auf dem Album (fast schon ein wenig überstrapaziert - Bridge plus Sound-Finish). 5-
**
2/5
Atrocious vocals in this one. Cringe-worthy chorus.
***
wohlwollende 3 *
***
mässig fesselnder Dubstep-Pop, 3*…
****
Bonne ballade.
****
...noch angenehm hörbar...+3.5
****
Am Schluss ist mir das ganze zu überladen und das dünne Stimmchen von Rihanna mag man aus der Dubstep-Suppe nicht mehr so richtig raushören. Aber sonst eine feine, kleine Ballade. 4.25+
****
Wat'nu? Gefällt mir recht gut.
*****
This would have been a much better single pick than Right Now. I actually think she sounds good in this one. I don't like the verses though, they seem to have a weird time register as opposed to the chorus.

Erg leuk nummer.

▒ Prima ø track uit ½ november 2012 van de nu inmiddels 25 jarige Barbadiaanse zangeres "Robyn Rihanna Fenty", afkomstig van haar album: "Unapologetic" ☺!!!
******
Grossartiger Song und der Geheimtipp schlechthin auf "Unapologetic"!
*****
Le refrain criard vient tacher un début de morceau loin d'être mauvais, dommage. Cinquième extrait d'Unapologetic, après le flop monstrueux et mérité de "Right Now".

EDIT : Un morceau vraiment agréable au fil des écoutes, j'apprécie particulièrement l'instrumentale.

Rihanna: wat een super talent en super zangeres
****
New single, and off first listen its pretty solid.
****
I suppose this will be bigger (and better :P) than 'Right Now'. Sounds good for now.

Decent song off first listen.
****
Unsure what to think about this one. Feels like many ideas squashed into the one song. I much prefer Diamonds and Stay but I think it's better than Right Now.

EDIT: Has grown on me. 4 stars now.

The chorus is slightly yelly but not as bad as it could have been but I much prefer the verses, in every way. If the chorus had been just that bit better this could have been an absolute Rihanna fave for me.
***
This feels like a pissing-in-the-wind attempt to do about 219344241 different songs in one. Also what's with her pronunciation of 'mirror'? A bit odd.
***
Surprisingly not bad, but it feels like it is trying to be edgy just for the sake of it.
****
A bit on the dramatic side, but it gets points for trying to be interesting
***
Pretty average song.
****
Jolie chanson de son dernier album
*****
Ik begrijp dat de remix van R3hab nu uitgebracht wordt maar vind het origineel eigenlijk beter. Maar zoals vrijwel het gehele oeuvre van Rihanna valt er op beide versies weinig aan te merken. De grootste zangeres van dit moment.
******
Einer ihrer besten Songs und einer der absoluten Höhepunkte der aktuellen Tour. Wird wohl die nächste Single und am 11.09. zum ersten Mal im TV vorgestellt.

Rihanna didn't write this song but I wonder if the people who did have a sense of humour. "Cause I spent every hour just going through the motions, I can't even get the emotions to come out" almost sounds like a mockery of Rihanna's busy schedule and the musical repercussions of it. And I know it's not the first time she's done it, but there's still just something eerily awkward about singing a first person recount that someone else wrote.

In any case, the above line could be used to sum up this song itself. I'm honestly not sure what it wants to be except everything. I also think that it's not nearly subtle enough with its hooks. Every line sung in this song is done with a certain inflection (detached syllables in the verses, then the ascending lines before the chorus, and then obviously the chorus) which isn't normally so bad, but given the song's efforts to stretch its reach as wide as possible, what you end up with is a distorted mess.
***
Ik ben nog niet echt overtuigd. Geen slecht nummer, maar ik voel hem nog niet echt.
****
Geen topper maar zeker niet slecht. 3.75*
*****
Ik vind dit weer een oerdegelijk nummer van Rihanna, maar dan heb ik het wel over het origineel en niet over de remix die nu wordt uitgebracht. Radio 538 denkt er kennelijk net zo over, want ze draaien daar liever het origineel dan de remix. En terecht. Ik geef geen 6*, want daar is het nummer nét iets te schreeuwerig voor, vooral in de refreinen, en het laatste gedeelte had van mij ook niet gehoeven. Had dan nog een keer het refrein ingezongen of zo... Hoe dan ook, met de zoveelste hit op komst is Rihanna hard op weg om de Madonna van deze generatie te worden. En die titel verdient ze veel meer dan die Lady Gaga, waarvan iedereen dat denkt omdat ze zich raar kleedt... Wrong!
***
Na 'Diamonds' en 'Stay' lag de lat voor Rihanna natuurlijk wel hoog, maar 'What Now' is ondanks dat ook echt niet meer dan een middelmatige song. De coupletten zijn absoluut mooi, maar bij het refrein schiet het alle kanten op. Niet meer dan 3 sterren.
****
Ik ben het er volledig mee eens als gezegd wordt dat dit de grootste zangeres is van het moment, maar persoonlijk vind ik dit nummerke wel wat minder dan de voorgangers "Diamonds" en "Stay" !!! Verder dan 3 sterren gaat het op dit moment nog niet !!! Maar kan zekers nog komen !!! ☺

Edit 21/10/2013: Ik ga toch verhogen naar 4 sterren !!! Ze kan zekers beter, maar bagger is deze nieuwe single toch ook niet !!! ☺

Prachtige plaat weer van Rihanna! dik 6 sterren

Langweilig...von 3.5 aufgerundet.

Eine eher schwächere Ballade von ihr.

*****
Schönes Lied. Augen zu und genießen! Hat eigentlich einen viel besseren Platz in den Charts verdient!
****
Love this strong ballad from Rihanna, and with a proper release like most of the tracks from 'Unapologetic' it would have been a much bigger hit.
**
Bad
*****
Good
****
De grootste zangeres van het moment vind ik wat overdreven, want dat was toen toch echt Katy Perry met haar geweldige comeback. Dit is een prima mid-temponummer, maar niet echt een waardige vierde single. Ik had liever dit niet als single gehad.
**
More bad vocals, no shock here.
****
eine knappe 4
***
Hier vermisst man doch eine interessantere Melodie.

Der Song wirkt etwas strukturlos, dennoch nicht komplett unhörbar.
