    Mostly, though, the music on Planet Pit is of the Euro-house variety, grand and stupid and tough to deny. Its appeal is global, largely because it lacks specific reference points.

    He still enjoys bouncing his gruff voice off tropical beats, a vocal conguero, but all those 4x4 stomps from the Continent give him fewer opportunities to do so.

    If every album from here on sounds like Planet Pit the public will begin to forget just what made him so special in the first place, but right here, right now, it's Pitbull's world and we're just living partying in it.

    Despite the house and dance beats and Marc Anthony features, Pitbull is still a rapper, and a decent one at that. He has definite personality on the mic, a trained and well-executed flow and delivery, and an ear for a good club banger.

    Formulaic it may be, but it is a formula Pitbull knows his way around – and though this aesthetic can't hope to match the boundless energy that the combination of his vocal with a Lil Jon production used to bring, there's enough of it here to satisfy once you turn your mind off.

    It's similar to Pitbull's newest album, Planet Pit, which blends everything but the kitchen sink in a frenetic jumble that's facile yet unadulterated fun.

    It's cocky, it's manufactured, it's too reliant on industry pal-downs, ugh, it's inorganic. Then again, it's perfectly of a moment where "All I Do Is Win" is the must-have self-fulfilling prophecy, and Planet Pit sounds like it's winning. And even if it isn't, well, it all but tells you to go ahead and groan.

    Pitbull's rapping machismo enhances his songs, but for better or worse there are times on Planet Pit where he seems caught up in the limelight instead of shining in it. This is likely to be his most successful album to date regardless.

    This is a hip-hop-flavored club effort of Elephunk proportions and another high-water mark for the don of pop-rap's glitter dome.

    Planet Pit plays a bit like a business plan.

    Gotta get that boom boom pow? Look no further.

    A little bit of charisma probably wouldn't have saved Planet Pit from disaster, but it might have helped.

    'Plant Pit' is the pits indeed. It seems like they just took a bunch of singles and threw it in to make an album. No artistry whatsoever, but'Plant Pit' is the pits indeed. It seems like they just took a bunch of singles and threw it in to make an album. No artistry whatsoever, but hey, I guess you shouldn't expect that from an artist like Pitbull. It gets a 1 due because tracks like Shake Senora (featuring Sean Paul) & Castle Made of Sand (featuring Kelly Rowland) are enjoyable... Full Review »
