  • Summary: The fourth album for the French producer/DJ features such guests as Kelly Rowland, Akon, will.i.am, Ne-Yo, and Estelle.

  1. Positive: 4 out of 10

  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.

    This album deserves more justice than it is getting here. This album is a heavyweight in house music. and definitely the best from David Guetta. Even if you are hesitant to listen to house music, this album will make you a raving fan. Expand

    David Guetta released his latest album, One Love, in August 2009. Completing his success in his previous albums, like 'Just a Little More Love' and 'Guetta Life', this album is expected to be the next hit. Its first single 'When Love Takes Over' which featured Kelly Rowland, peaked #1 on the UK Singles Chart and topped many other countries worldwide becoming a huge summer and dance-floor song. One of our favorite song of the album is 'Sexy **** because it's just uplifting and kind of inspiring and what we don't like is 'Gettin' Over' because it takes too long to get to the climax of the song. For the music, it's quite uplifting but sometimes this album can be a little boring. It's boring because some of the songs have a climax that is too late and the lyrics are just repeating all the time. Overall, this album ROCKS! Expand

    Un álbum notable, muy recomendable para fans de este tipo de música. Tiene canciones y melodías geniales, sobretodo "Sexy ****". En su día debí escuchar esa canción unas 20 veces... Expand

    With some excellent dance songs, such as 'When love takes over', 'Sexy **** and 'Gettin' over you' this is one of the best dance albums lately. However, there is a lot of very repetitive songs as well.... Definitely a good album, overall, just that the second half of the album feels repetitive and not very fresh. Still, highly recommended!!

    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.

    This album can't be a 10 in any event, because the lyrics are truly **** but David Guetta makes good club music. Some surprisingly good features from Novel, Akon or Ne-Yo, whether Kelly Rowland gains success in fedding my ears up in three different songs. All in all, 'One Love' has got ups and has got downs (more on this side), but is a very nice LP for a club night - not more. Expand
