Album Preview: Rihanna's "Unapologetic"

"Love Without Tragedy" / "Mother Mary"

A tear-jerking suite of torch songs set to chord changes reminiscent of "Message In A Bottle" by The Police. "You took the best years of my life," Rihanna sings before asking, "What's love without tragedy?" More to the point, what a pop star's career without tragedy? The drama kicks up a notch in part two as Rihanna moves past living in the moment and declares "I'm preparing to die in the moment."
