Autotune obsessed electro-popster Ke$ha's debut Animal was an obnoxious and inane test of one's patience, so her 2nd album, 2012's Warrior is expected to be more of the same. Not so.
Ke$ha doesn't exactly reinvent her potentially annoying electro-pop squeaky white girl rap sound but more or less builds upon it with a bit more confidence and thought. This isn't my scene at all but I can't help but notice the care Ke$ha takes in her own songwriting and production. Unlike other poptarts, Ke$ha doesn't pretend that she doesn't have a taste for trash and looking & acting like a slob. That makes her music seem much more genuine than the transparent "sophistication" that Britney and Katy seem to like to portray.
