    Gotta get that boom boom pow? Look no further.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    How can the critics be so supportive of this terrible album?? Pitbull is one of the worst thing that happened to music this past couple of year. Keep yourself away from this guy. Collapse

    This is a vintage Pitbull album. Pitbull throws in a few hit radio singles and creates some unique beats. Sure, his rapping isn't up to par with Drake or Tempah but you don't listen to Pitbull for the lyrics. He gives you a reason to go out and dance in the club or at a party and he does a damn good job doing it. If you don't like the type of music he makes, then you have no reason to put him down. Expand

    Pitbull, you know what to expect. it is what it is. The album is a party record with great tunes and Mr World Wild is joined by some of the biggest names in the business. Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Rowland, Nelly, Ne-Yo, Marc Anthony...I would continue the list but i want you to disover the other big names for yourself. Also on the album is upcoming rapper Jamie Drastik and Nayer, two of his own artists. Keep an eye. The album isn't all about the big name features, but the production too, RedOne, Dr Luke, Redfoo. Again so many its unbeleivable. Thoroughly enjoyable. Expand

    In short: If you ignore Pitbull's horrible rapping (not that he appears a lot on the album), there are some great tracks. The album as a whole is not worth buying, but "Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)", "Give Me Everything", "International Love", "Castle Made of Sand" and "Rain Over Me" deserve a listen. Expand

    Fun for a party or to get you pumped up for something, but if we make a more profound analysis, his lyrics are insanely mediocre, not to mention that too much of it gets tiring and annoying Expand

    Horrible... Can not understand the good critics, since it's hard to call this 'music'. The co-operation with J-Lo makes it even worse, calling him an artist is a sin! Expand

    PITBULL is not a rapper nor will he ever be. His music is pop trash. i hate everything he's done and will ever do. None of his songs fall into the category of Rap. Expand
