"There is still some of that; Rainbow is inevitably heavy with subtext and a need to prove something, especially on “Praying.” Kesha commits emotionally and vocally (one high note spawned actual reaction videos); the lyrics—righteous warnings that tiptoe up to the line of litigation (“We both know the truth I could tell”)—execute their intention precisely. But it’s still a pro forma piano ballad, produced by collaborator Ryan Lewis (of “Macklemore &” fame) with a plodding track and sloppy comping of Kesha’s vocals, particularly on the verses. It works more as a statement than a song. The title track, a collaboration with Ben Folds that blooms into a string arrangement, is an improvement, but still sedate.

Thankfully, the rest of Rainbow lets Kesha be her usual OTT self. Studio banter is left in; on some tracks she breaks down into laughter like her ad-libbed, “I like your beard.” Since Warrior, Kesha had fought for rock tracks, with limited success; Iggy Pop made that album, but a very toned-down version. Rainbow substitutes Eagles of Death Metal. The exuberant “Let ’Em Talk” is like closing-credits music for her own story, and “Boogie Feet,” despite the inauspicious title, is surprisingly beefy, culminating in a glam call-and-response as fun as anything she’s done. Kesha tears through country as she does rock. “Hunt You Down” is a blatant June Carter homage—it name-drops “I Walk the Line” halfway through, for those who hadn't gotten it before—and its goony stalker glee makes for something like a rockabilly version of her song “Stephen.” (Pitchfork)
