    He swings hard, but often misses--perhaps his biggest problem is that he's not rooted in any genre outside of people-
pleasing pop.

    He's just a bit too overeager--too determined to please all of the people all of the time.

    Derulo's still saying nothing--which is fine, since these are hooky, club cuts--but it's the talking louder that's the issue.

    "Quite listenable" sums up most of Future History.

    For all that, there's some likable listening here, but Derulo hasn't yet found a distinctive sound.

    On this record we hear very generic and undefined sound from Derulo again. The best songs are dance-y "Breathing", Caribbean styled "Fight For You" and "Don't Wanna Go Home" that uses the Robin S song "Show Me Love". The rest are complete fillers. Expand

    Autotune is used to correct Jason Derulo's less than satisfactory album.
