Album Review

Selena Gomez has carved out a pretty nice career as a pop singer over the course of a run of well-produced, well-written, and very well-sung albums that haven't always been full of smash hits, but have an overall level of quality that pushed her to the head of the Disney class. After an album, 2011's When the Sun Goes Down, that streamlined her sound into a sleek and shiny pop rocket with both eyes on the dancefloor, Stars Dance takes a (slightly) more eclectic approach. Gomez and her team of writers and producers don't stray far from the dancefloor and party jams, and these are the strongest songs on the album. It's hard to resist the jumping beats, shiny synths, and Gomez's cheery vocals on tracks like "Slow Down," "Undercover," and the disco-y "Save the Day." Even when she's lamenting her mostly broken heart, as on the thumping "Forget Forever" or the loping "Write Your Name," it's hard to keep from wanting to hit the dancefloor. The only sad song that makes you want to stop and cry a little is the seriously bummed "Love Will Remember." Like her previous albums, though, there are a few surprises this time out. Not that a song being influenced by dubstep in 2013 is really shocking, since even tissue commercials have a dubstep sound, but her take on it, the moody title track, at least does a decent job of integrating the rippling bass and thudding tempo into Gomez's world. The bubblegum twerk jam "B.E.A.T." is lots of fun, the tablas add a nice mystical touch to "Come & Get It," and somehow she doesn't sound completely ridiculous imitating Buju Banton on the dancehall jam "Like a Champion," which samples his song "Champion" — instead, she just sounds spunky. Thanks to the strong songs, Selena's reliably strong vocals, and the variety of sounds, it adds up to be another fine entry in her catalog and just another example of why Selena Gomez is one of the best pop stars making music in 2013.

ANOTHER FUN POP ALBUM FROM SELENA

Even though "Stars Dance" is most likely gonna be yet another collection of similarly themed dance-pop songs, I'm still pretty excited for its release. Selena Gomez may not quite be the most naturally talented pop star in the industry, but she has an undeniable charisma that easily makes her one of the most memorable current artists. Her music is fun and carefree, despite its lack of originality, and that's all I really expect from a singer like her, which is far from a bad thing. "Come & Get It" has already proven to be an instantly catchy first single with a creative Indian vibe, while "Slow Down" is another upbeat dance track with mindless but enjoyable lyrics. In the end, I think it's safe to say an album like this won't be winning any Grammys in the near future, but with songs as irresistibly fun as these, they're still well worth a listen, especially if you've always been a diehard fan of Selena and her teen-friendly brand of pop music. Personally, I just hope she reconnects with The Scene on her next record.

Made my ears hurt

After reading all of the "5 star" reviews on here, I'm a bit intimidated, but I have to say that the first song on this album, "Birthday" is terrible. First, its repetitive -- there are no real honest lyrics being sung, Second, her voice has been so electronically altered that she sounds like she's singing in a tin can. And whatever that inappropriate moaning is in the background actually makes the song worse. Selena is a very pretty and innocent-looking girl. The song would be tolerable, but whoever did the editing and put the moaning track in, should be slapped. You made a "Birthday" song sound dirty....and the non-existant lyrics don't even support the possibility that moaning might be occuring. If I can't get past the first song on the album, there is no way I can listen to the rest. Will not be buying this album. Save your money for something better.

Sounds good so far

I think this will be one of her best albums yet.
