Still partying hard two years after her 2010 debut, Ke$ha sets the tone for her sophomore album, Warrior, singing about "young hunks taking shots/ stripping down to dirty socks" on the hit lead single "Die Young." Ke$ha writes much of her own material, alongside collaborator Dr. Luke, and while cringe-worthy nursery rhymes infiltrate "Crazy Kids" ("I'm fresher than that Gucci/ Them boys they want my coochie/ I say 'Nope, I'm no hoochie'"), the album has its high points, including the call-and-response anthem "Dirty Love" featuring Iggy Pop. Ke$ha's saving grace may be that she doesn't take herself too seriously. On the confessional power ballad "Love Into the Light," she declares she's not sorry she swears, drinks and has a messy past, asking "Can we just get over ourselves and stop talking shit?"
