Ke$ha – Animal

February 8, 2010 at 6:11 pm (Reviews) (, , )

After the success of ‘Tik Tok’ I had high expectations for ‘Animal’, the debut album from America’s latest offering, Ke$ha. A 22 year old who first found exposure by singing on Flo Rider’s single ‘Right Round’ and appearing in the video for ‘I Kissed A Girl’ by Katy Perry.

However the album falls short on every level. The songs are all the same manufactured sound that follow the same theme of parties, drinking and boys throughout. Her voice resembles a child and a very adolescent Avril Lavingne. ‘Party At A Rich Dude’s House’ proves this, the shouting backing vocals and the shocking lyrics, ‘I’m pissin’ in the Dom Pérignon’ and ‘I threw up in the closet. And I don’t care’, make you want to tear your ears off.

Not even a collaboration with 3OH!3 can rescue Ke$ha from the depths of a one hit wonder. ‘Blah Blah Blah’ gives the same as what ‘Tik Tok’ did. A pop track that screams please notice me.

Not only is it the awful lyrics that make her debut appear cheap and nasty it is the way she sings. Her pronunciation leaves you questioning what the hell did she just say?

The title of worst track off the album has to be given to ‘Dinosaur’. Singing the spelling of dinosaur makes it sound like a 90’s cheerleading film that went straight to DVD release.

Only time will tell if Ke$ha makes a mark on the music scene but this cd is only good for one thing; and that is for it to be used as a coaster.

    I agree. I saw her on T4 and she came across as being a total wannabe. She performed all the trackes off her album. it was dire. and she came across as the fakest person ive ever seen. ergh ! shame as well. i thought tik tok was pretty catchy…
