Trashy fun electro party pop!

If you like 'serious' music and dislike music that isn't, then Ke$ha and this album will not be for you. Let's face it - this album was never going to receive widespread critical praise, but it was never made for that purpose. For those with a sense of humour and fun (and who occasionally like to stick two fingers up at some of the highbrow critics) Animal will be a real treat, and a great soundtrack to a night out. Where's the harm in that? Ke$ha writes self-confessed trashy pop songs about wild nights out and all the crazy things that go with it - getting drunk, flings, arguments etc.

I think Ke$ha would be the first to admit that she hasn't got the best singing voice in the world, but this album works because of her brazen carefree attitude, her trashy style, funny lyrics, clever use of auto-tune - all combined with the electropop genius of Dr. Luke and Max Martin. It's full of party bangers jam-packed with irresistable electropop hooks, although some of the slower songs aren't as much fun, but a few of them are surprisingly effective to a certain extent, and you've got to give Ke$ha credit for giving them a go - but she's at her best with songs like Tik Tok and Take It Off, to name a few.

There are at least 3 or 4 huge potential singles on Animal, I personally hope Backstabber and Your Love Is My Drug are amongst the future releases, but there's so many fab songs to pick from. If you've loved Tik Tok over the last few months then you'll almost certainly love this album, just buy it and enjoy it for what it is, don't take it seriously, and ignore what some of those critics say!

I'm sure 2010 will be a huge year for Ke$ha and Animal.

Amazziingg Debut! Ke$ha is here to stay...

Although my only gripe about this album is that it was released here over three weeks later than everywhere else, it was without a doubt, worth the wait and is an incredibly strong debut from the new princess of electropop! Here's a track by track review of the album.

Your Love is My Drug: 9.5/10 - Really hope this song is the third single - ridiciously catchy think Tik Tok meets Avril Lavigne's Girlfriend.

TiK ToK: 9.5/10 - Ke$ha's sparkling debut solo single is a shining example of today's current trends of heavy beats and synths. Dr Luke really out-did himself on this track and Ke$ha's vibrant personality make this track the absolute hum-dinger hit that it is.

Take It Off: 10/10 - If you don't decide to buy the whole album at least by this track and Blah Blah Blah. This song has a sort of Circus-esque theme running through it, and the beat gets stronger as the song progresses. Perfect song to dance to on a Friday, Saturday (or any) night out..

Kiss 'n' Tell: 8.5/10 - Music maestro Max Martin takes the ropes of this up-beat little number. The whole song flows really well and you can't resist tapping your foot along to the verse and middle eight. Similar in a way to Kelly Clarkson'ss "MLWSWU" but a bit more exciting as its Ke$ha on vocals.

Stephen: 8.5/10 - This beginning of this track really reminds me of the sensational Imogen Heap's latest material. Slow-paced and extremely relaxing, probably the closest you would get to the album's "ballad/slow song".

Blah Blah Blah: 9.5/10 - Packed full of Ke$ha's spunky personality and a fiery melody, this song really is as good as it gets. 3OH!3 add a well structured verse to the song and I'm really glad she's releasing this as the second single.

Hungover: 9/10 - Another slow-ish track on the album produced once again by Max Martin. Again this shows another side of Ke$ha, as her voice sounds a lot softer and purer on this number. The song has a subtly that makes it work so well.

Party At a Rich Dude's House: 9/10 - Ke$ha's back doing what she does best, ranting about extravagent parties to an insane beat. Rumour has it, it was inspired by an experience involving Ke$ha and Paris Hilton.

Backstabber: 7.5/10 - I don't know if I like this track or not, it doesn't really stand out to me and can get quite annoying after a few plays!? Although I do like the section in the middle of the song.

Blind: 9.5/10 - This song is absolutely superb, and completely unexpected. Mid-tempo and incredibly well produced - and written.

Dinosaur: 8.5/10 - Dinosaur just spells LOL outloud. Just listen to the lyrics for sheer enjoyment. I think Ke$ha was just feeling extremely childish when she worked with Max Martin (again) on this one.

Dancing with Tears In Eyes: 9.5/10 - Another hidden-gem on the album; I'm starting to think Ke$ha should start releasing/creating more mid-tempo material, everything just seems to click when she sings. Amazing!

Boots & Boys: 8.5/10 - Perfect example of why Ke$ha is no ordinary performer, she brings life and her own personality to each track. Well placed track on the album as it lightens the mood after the quite sombre previous track.

Animal: 9/10 - A Haunting melody is in full-force on the album's title track which builds and builds in pace as the track progresses (quite possibly like the animal in all of us?). The track feels almost extra-terrestrial, sorry it's the only way I can describe it.

VIP: 8/10 - Bit like "Backstabber" can't decide how I feel about this song. I find you get into it reaches the chorus - but I wouldn't choose to listen to this track as a first pick.

Dirty Picture 9/10 - I was really looking forward to hearing this track as it sounded like a pretty odd colaboration. The chorus is extremely simple but hugely effective at getting you hooked. I love the synths which fly through the section after the chorus; I think this might be the guilty pleasure of the album,

All in all, only one other debut album springs to mind which I feel can rival this one, and that is of course "The Fame" by the Queen of electropop: GaGa. Having said that this album is surprisingly well balanced, not full of quick-paced dance-ready numbers. If you like Tik Tok, you're guaranteed to like at least 40% of this album and probably surprise yourself at how brilliant the other 60% of "Animal" is. So well done, Ke$ha and the masters, Dr Luke & Max Martin for creating this modern day wonder of music. And as our American cousins who say (or said three weeks ago) GREAT JOB!

Amazing And New

Been waiting like a month for this album! Love it. She is a good person and her music is very fresh, she may not be the best vocalist but she does know who to produce some entertaining songs :D Look forward to seeing her up there with the current big female acts such as the great Lady GaGa and amazing Katy Perry :D

A brash and driven pop singer/songwriter, Kesha (Kesha Rose Sebert) was born in Los Angeles but moved to Nashville when she was four, where her mother -- a longtime songwriter -- had inked a publishing deal.

Before finishing high school, Kesha returned to L.A. for the sake of jump-starting her own music career, despite being...
