  • Summary: The debut album for the rapper includes such guests as Lil Wayne, T-Pain, Timbaland, and will.i.am.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 12
  2. Negative: 1 out of 12
  1. His guests on Sunday bring ferocious beats (like will.i.am on ''In the Ayer'') and infectious hooks (Sean Kingston on ''Roll'').
  2. His hooks can be rock-solid ('Ack Like You Know') and his interest in gleaming synthesizerism (opener 'American Superstar' comes into 'Tubular Bells' territory, really) helps set him off from the legions of rappers clawing over each other to break out of the South.
  3. He's a little bit Twista, a little bit Trick Daddy, and a whole lot Nelly. None of those things are negative, but the fact he can't distinguish himself from any of them isn't a positive.
  4. The result is so robotic in its attempt to jolt every single pleasure center every single second that any twist of human joy, lust, awareness, or reflection is assimilated into its brittle, crunky Borg cube.
  5. For every witty rhyme, there is enough cringe-worthy couplets.
  6. Other than the album's highlight, the resonant break-up song "Still Missin'," Mail on Sunday rarely delivers.
  7. He joylessly repeats all the tired tropes of Southern party rap (brand-name fetishizing, drug-trade mythologizing, stripper-bitch glorifying), and the album's best track has already been let out of the bag.

    It's obvious that a lot of the reviewers are not from Florida, and do not understand our music. This CD has that old school feel with It's obvious that a lot of the reviewers are not from Florida, and do not understand our music. This CD has that old school feel with new age Dade County sound. By looking in the records, either they underestimate his popularity, or no one is listening to critics in Omaha and New York. Trey O Five is back. Flo Rida, Rick Ross, Trina, DJ Khaled!!!! Expand

    There are only 4 songs I could say I actually enjoyed (Elevator, Priceless, Don't Know How To Act and Money Right) and the rest was terrible.There are only 4 songs I could say I actually enjoyed (Elevator, Priceless, Don't Know How To Act and Money Right) and the rest was terrible.
