Album review: Ke$ha’s debut studio album ‘Animal’ (2010)

Ke$ha-AnimalKe$ha’s electropop ‘Tik Tok’ reached the number one position on the ARIA charts with three times platinum certification. Its lyric is obnoxious, but the electro beat is rather catchy that can get the song stuck in your head, unpleasant to say the least. Animal’s opening tracks including the hit ‘Tik Tok’ offer similar experience.

Listening midway through the album everything started to sound ‘Blah Blah Blah’. The induced headache was like being ‘Hungover’ after a ‘Party At A Rich Dude’s House. Only after ‘Backstabber’ did I find a track that don’t make my ears ‘Blind’.

‘D.I.N.O.S.A.U.R.’ sounds Jurassic; seriously, this is the most annoying track of the entire album. The album title track ‘Animal’ is rather nice if turned into a pure dance track. Actually, this goes for most of the tracks on this album.

This album has poor dynamic range, though it managed to avoid clipping. Many distortion effects were unnecessarily used on Ke$ha’s voice, on the plus side the samples used are of good quality. If you like ‘Tik Tok’ you will like this album though be warned it all can became too much, if you loathe it, this will make you despise it.
