  1. 7.0 |   All Music

    While this is a fine, if uneven album, the only way to enjoy a significant portion of it is by taking it as pure entertainment

  2. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Unapologetic's stark, shadowy R&B is confrontationally honest and sung within an inch of its life
    Read Review

  3. 7.0 |   NME

    This most compelling of pop phenomena still has something new to offer
    Read Review

  4. 7.0 |   Spin

    Her voice's unadorned nakedness is its greatest strength
    Read Review

  5. 6.0 |   The Scotsman

    Musically no better or worse than any of her previous offerings
    Read Review

  6. 6.0 |   The Observer

    All filthy lyrics and crashing dubstep drops: R&B-pop turned up to 11
    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Sounds exactly like the sort of album that would've been cobbled together in a flurry of rushed assembly-line activity, with most of the high points operating independent of each other
    Read Review

  8. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    For all its musical value, listening to Unapologetic is a pretty depressing experience
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    Rihanna records vocals on the road to backing tracks created by hot songwriter-producers like David Guetta & Stargate. Hardly surprising it’s a mixed bag
    Read Review

  10. 6.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    It's a true representation of Rihanna's personality. That is to say, it's dull as dishwater
    Read Review

  11. 5.8 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    Rihanna’s latest mostly just showcases Rihanna the brand. Unapologetic aims for the middle ground—and succeeds
    Read Review

  12. 5.8 |   A.V. Club

    Rihanna’s much-discussed duet with Brown, Nobody’s Business, forms the rotten core of Unapologetic, a fiery pop album that’s unfortunately coated in the icky residue of unearned defiance that has marked Brown’s recent output
    Read Review

  13. 5.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It just never comes together with any cohesion – it’s fragmented on almost every level
    Read Review

  14. 4.5 |   Pitchfork

    On a track-by-track basis, the songs make for dull labor, not worth our time and not befitting Rihanna's talent
    Read Review

  15. 4.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    With a healthy dose of self-respect – not luck – Rihanna has the ability to transform her manicured battle heroine persona into a career that’s truly durable
    Read Review

  16. 4.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    In spite of Rihanna’s best efforts, Unapologetic is more depressing than offensive
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   BBC

    The mixture of emotions across Unapologetic just doesn’t sit right
    Read Review

  18. 4.0 |   Evening Standard

    She’s a peripheral figure on Unapologetic, contributing little beyond a few phoned-in vocals
    Read Review

  19. 2.0 |   music OMH

    As a record it is not only misguided, it’s dangerous
