God, I hope this doesn't get lost in the absolutely massive sea of bots.

What an absolute hypocritical trash can. Listen, I'm aware that Selena has gone through an incredibly difficult time, and I definitely feel for that. Plus, she seems like a genuinely sweet and down to earth person in interviews. But god, this album makes zero sense. 75% of the tracks are her talking about how she's not going to let anyone walk all over her and learn from her mistakes. And then, the other 25% is her ... read more

It's not bad, but sure it could have been a lot better. Lose You To Love me should have been the closing track and A Sweeter Place the opening one. Other than that, the first half is considerably more consistent and entertaining compared to the second half. Lyrically it's not out of this world but it's her most personal album to date

GREAT!

I only came for Cudi... but then I realized the rest of the record is pretty heat!

Selena Gomez, for those who are living under a rock... used to be your everyday teenage witch and had gone by "Alex Russo". She lived happily with her two parents and her siblings, and they would often catch up on mischief and go on wacky adventures all the time.

Until one day Disney decided that they should go ahead and have their own full-length film called "Wizards of Waverly Place ... read more

Was NOT Expecting This.

This album is GOOD. Going into this I was expecting it to be better than usual Selena but not THIS much better. Almost EVERY song on here is a bop besides a couple tracks. This is the definition of what a call FUN pop music. Let me tell y'all about RING. If you are a dude and want to feel like a bad bitch. That song is for you. And the outro track with Cudi. JESUS it's so soothing and SO good. Selena really showed that she isn't just a generic pop artist on this record. ... read more

Edit: I originally gave this a 0 to troll the 250+ bots that rated this album and...it worked. Anyways...

So I actually listened to this album. I’d fuck with about 3 songs on here. Some of the beats are sweet but there are a couple that are pretty grimy and bombastic. There’s only one truly terrible song on the album, Look at Her Now. Other than that, this album is anything but rare. This sound isn’t fresh anymore, which isn’t a bad thing, except I have heard a ... read more

This review's gonna be a bit difficult to write. Not because I have some emotional connection with it, not because this is a personal album for Selena... just that I completely forgot everything I listened to.

I don't think the album sounds bad most of the time, but it's just very forgettable and boring. Most of the time. There are some tracks on here I actually think are great. Dance Again, Vulnerable, Kinda Crazy and A Sweeter Place are really solid tracks and have a lot of great qualities ... read more

"Rare" is a forgettable album at best and an annoying one at its worst. It has a few decent cuts here and there, but Selena does nothing to make this stand out from a lot of other cookie-cutter pop albums that have come out the last few years.

Fav Tracks: Kinda Crazy, Cut You Off, A Sweeter Place, Vulnerable

Least Fav Tracks: Look At Her Now, Ring, Lose You To Love Me

Score:
4.8

Originally, I had this at a 0 to troll some of the bots rolling in. This isn't that bad. It isn't exactly that great either. I forgot to come back and change my rating from a 0 because this album was so forgettable that it just slipped my mind. That's about all I have to say about this.

Original Review: This is the best album I've ever heard.

There isn't anything rare about Rare, only the title. Despite being less generic than Revival, in terms of quality, enjoyment and good vocals it's much lower. Which is quite disappointing given that I really enjoyed the singles prior to this album "Bad Liar" and "Fetish" and I think she should have continued with that aesthetic because it would be much more interesting. However Rare is not completely bad there are some satisfying moments like "Cut You Off" and ... read more

Only thing that's rare in this album are good songs

I'm generally quite optimistic when it comes modern mainstream pop, perhaps more so than I should be
I tend to be disappointed a lot more than I am pleasantly surprised and this is seriously a disappointment. I seen some decent reviews for this thing and I had some hope for this to be decent. It's not. It is one of the worst things I've heard in a while. It's hard for me to be overly critical of modern pop as it just seems like a low blow for me, it's obviously not supposed to be anything ... read more

Selena has evolved her sound after a long time without releasing a new album, 'Rare' have the vulnerability on the lyrics and the power in the productions, her voice sounds much more confident than usual, she opens her heart to show her true self and honestly I think it's amazing.

Rare é o meu primeiro contato mais aprofundado com Selena Gomez, pois a mesma nunca foi uma artista que me despertou o interesse, porém após eu ter visto toda a estética e algumas músicas como Lose You To Love Me e Rare, eu comecei a ter um certo interesse pela artista, pois parecia ter uma certa vibe intimista que é uma coisa que me atrai bastante.

Rare é um album que fala sobre as desilusões amorosas da Selena e mostra uma suposta ... read more

I didn’t know we were getting a new Taylor Swift album!

All jokes aside, there’s actually a couple decent songs on this but for the most part it’s just your run-of-the-mill faceless and obscurely romantic pop music. Nothing actually feels genuine or personal, it feels manufactured and that’s because it is.

Fraco, básico e descartável, porém no final das contas bom.
Com certeza Rare uma regressão artistica, Selena não cresceu ou apresentou algo diferente, Rare parece um descarte do Revival, o que de fato ele é, entrega pouco, não tem nada de grandioso, mas mesmo assim fez um trabalho acima da média.

Selena has never been one of my favorite artists and is not yet, but she is one of the artists who is part of a show that has been giving us music without content for years (Cardi B / Weekdn / Ariana / Bieber / One Direction / Miley Cirus, etc, etc., etc.) This girl on this album has undoubtedly shown that she has learned from great pop artists, that she has been able to take risks and mature in her music, at least this album has excellent songs and impeccable production, and it is something ... read more

Selena Gomez once again hits the mainstream pop scene, but this time with a little more flare.

"Rare" is nothing extravagant, but it's baby steps for Gomez's growth in musicality. The production and the songwriting have been taken up a notch this time around, both forming to make for a more vibrant listening experience. Selena's smooth vocals guide the album through themes of heartbreak and self-love. Even with all these great things, one thing is quite bothering me, and it's the ... read more

I love Selena Gomez, don’t get me wrong, she’s an important part of my childhood and she’s part of why I’m bilingual today. However, with the years, I found myself gravitating away from her music, or at least some of it. I unfortunately will probably be doing the same with this album. It felt very simple which is sometimes her strong suit, but I didn't appreciate it much. Her music has mostly been that, quite simple yet with a fun beat. It’s not bad, but it’s ... read more

Muitos não gostam do Rare, e eu não entendo o porque, é um ótimo álbum, o que eu mais gosto são as letras sinceras e pessoais

melhores faixas : Rare, Look At Her Now, Lose You To Love Me, Vulnerable, Fun, Cut You Off e A Sweeter Place

"Selena’s new album is interesting because, while it seems that Gomez has deepened a single subject, it seems that she has saturated that same subject. As said, Selena could have done a lot more with this album, have brought a range of subjects, but preferred something that showed that she is on top. However, it doesn’t mean that the tracks are bad, to be honest, most are nice to hear, but, looking from a more critical side, Selena has a long way to go. The tracks, in general, ... read more

This wizards of waverly place 12-year-old boy cannot sing and his songwriting is so patronizing.
