Rihanna's two best received albums (going by metacritic) have been her fourth album Rated R and recent album ANTI. I would put these two as her best also, incredible albums wub.gif Rated R was such a surprise as she'd never done anything like it and it was the album that really made me a fan (I LIKED her before, but I never thought GGGB as a whole was that good and no one was here for those first two albums ;o). ANTI was also a big surprise as there were styles she had never incorporated on there and after the long gap and disappointingness of Unapologetic she needed a killer album, and she f***ing BROUGHT it.

Music wise, ANTI is my favourite, I wouldn't say there's a bad track on there tbh ohmy.gif Rated R is very good also though. What is your favourite?

Mad House vs. Consideration
Wait Your Turn vs. James Joint
Hard vs. Kiss It Better
Stupid In Love vs. Work
ROCKSTAR 101 vs. Desperado
Russian Roulette vs. Woo
Fire Bomb vs. Needed Me
Rude Boy vs. Yeah I Said It
Photographed vs. Same Ol' Mistakes
G4L vs. Never Ending
Te Amo vs. Love On The Brain
Cold Case Love vs. Higher
The Last Song vs. Close To You

Rated R - 6
ANTI - 7

My averages for them both are RR 7.92 and ANTI 8.38, so about right~ TTT is on 7.43, Loud on 7.90 and Unapologetic just 6.93.

Really hard on some of these! Never Ending and Higher are among my favourites on ANTi. Love both these albums and for me the later half of both albums are a lot stronger than the first half. Both albums deserved higher UK peaks.

I love both Hard and Fire Bomb, but they're going against some of her very best. Don't especially like Woo or Never Ending but they're still better than G4L etc.

I much prefer ANTI as a whole album, it sounds like she just did whatever she wanted this album and it feels so much better quality wise because of it.

Mad House vs. Consideration
Wait Your Turn vs. James Joint
Hard vs. Kiss It Better (this is so awful because they are both in my ultimate RiRi top 5)
Stupid In Love vs. Work
ROCKSTAR 101 vs. Desperado
Russian Roulette vs. Woo
Fire Bomb vs. Needed Me
Rude Boy vs. Yeah I Said It
Photographed vs. Same Ol' Mistakes
G4L vs. Never Ending
Te Amo vs. Love On The Brain
Cold Case Love vs. Higher
The Last Song vs. Close To You

6 to Rated R and 7 to ANTI.

They are both incredible albums. I still can't decide which one I like more though overall, I'll put ANTI in this poll as it won more but overall it is pretty neck and neck for me.

Rated R: 7

Definitely prefer 'Rated R' overall, but 'ANTI' is definitely more consistent. 'Rude Boy' does nothing for me, 'Photographs' is one of my least fave Rihanna tracks and 'Te Amo' is bland. The highs are so much higher from RR than they are 'ANTI' though. Nothing exceeds 'Russian Roulette', 'The Last Song' and ofc 'Fire Bomb' (except LOTB, maybe).

'Hard' vs. 'Kiss It Better' was the hardest round for me! Both amazing. Although I really wanted to help 'Woo' out, but that drew against 'Russian Roulette'.. so... </3

'Hard' v 'Kiss It Better' was IMPOSSIBLE :'(
'Kiss It Better' would've won against any other song on 'Rated R'

'Rated R' 4
'ANTI' 9

By far her two strongest albums, 'ANTI' is her at her absolute best though.
