  1. A manifesto for the synthesis of dance and hip-hop, French DJ David Guetta's new album One Love turns out top 40-friendly songs while remaining true to dance club culture.
  2. For the most part, though, Guetta knows what he's doing here. Bring America to the club? Nah. He'll bring the club to America.
  3. Depending on your taste, you can thank or blame producer Guetta for the Black Eyed Peas' 'I Gotta Feeling.' If you're in the latter camp, skip his new album, One Love, which offers a redundant remix of that tune along with high-gloss grooves
  4. One Love goes surprisingly deep, but an instrumental companion disc would’ve been a nice touch.
  5. It feels like a series of tracks rather than a fully realised long-player.
  6. He can doubtless get a party started every bit as effectively as either of those two [Paul van Dyk & Diplo] but, on this record at least, in dance terms he finds himself rather falling between two stools as he enlarges the walls of his big tent.
  7. It's the sound of the summer! If summer for you means a fake tan and drinking WKD for a week in the Med with the likes of Kelly Rowland and Will.I.Am popping up as guests with your fave.

    David Guetta has gone mainstream with this Dance/House/Hip-Hop blend, and that is not a bad thing. Most of the songs are single material, with the potential of becoming hits. Expand

    Best Album Ever. makes you want to dance. When you think you have heard the best song a better one plays next.

    What I expected really, a dance album with big stars and big beats. Most dance fans won't mind this album. But if you do some research and then go on amazon, I am sure you will find much better dance albums for half the price. Expand

    The album was good. But I'm not a big fan of dance and some songs were quite boring to listen to.

    Sounds outdated with bland beats - bound to be popular though.
