  2. 7.0 |   The AU Review

    Guetta has certainly held onto his heavyweight DJ title, making an album for all ages and listeners

  3. 6.5 |   BBC

    It’s a cohesive effort, if not quite a work of art
    Read Review

  4. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    Fans of the vacuous sound of current daytime radio will think that 23 tracks aren't nearly enough
    Read Review

  5. 6.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    As packed and punchy as Black Eyed Peas on steroids, this is the sound of the overground
    Read Review

  6. 6.0 |   Q

    It's undeniably infectious, maddeningly so at times. Print edition only

  11. 4.0 |   The Irish Times

    The problem is that Guetta’s formula doesn’t allow for anything but non-stop bish-bash-boom
    Read Review

  12. 4.0 |   PopMatters

    A showcase of everything that is bad about pop music in 2011: derivative, novelty, shallow, rushed, Auto-Tuned to the ends of the earth and thoroughly uninteresting

  13. 4.0 |   The Scotsman

    22 million Facebook followers can't be wrong, right?
    Read Review

  14. 4.0 |   The Guardian

    Guetta's songwriting team is great at luring you in with intros that promise something a little different ... but the lure of the steamroller beat is too strong every time
    Read Review

  15. 2.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Guetta might be one of the only people given partial credit for creating a sea change in pop music who's also unquestionably the least compelling example of that style
    Read Review

  16. 2.0 |   The Observer
