    The album is quite uniform, all the song sound pretty similar, I admire song let it rock, its a good song and ''Welcome to the world'' and ''Great escape'' are pretty good songs also, ''In the city'' song is ok, but all the rest of the album is medicore.

  1. In the City gets by on hooks and hugeness, like an irony-free Andrew W.K., Timbaland working with Aerosmith, or a jaded version of the Jonas Brothers now willing to drop the F-bomb.
  2. Like Timbaland and the Neptunes before him, though, Rudolf's behind-the-scenes work only whetted his limelight appetite, so here he steps out with a weirdly infectious debut that mixes his rap-track know-how with his love of guitar-god theatrics.
  3. In the City offers good production, excellent melodies, and - of course - the same song, idea(s), and kinds of guest appearances many times over.
