    On T-Pain's fourth album rEVOLVEr, though, that dampened bravado actually serves him.
  2. Dec 12, 2011
    No, his music isn't appropriate for every situation, but when T-Pain is what you're in the mood for, there's still no better T-Pain than T-Pain.
  3. Dec 13, 2011
    If you want the T-Pain you know and love rEVOLVEr delivers that in spades--but he doesn't really EVOLVE at all.
  4. Dec 13, 2011
    It gives credit to his cheerily assured worldview that Pain's roboto soul sounds like inspiration.
  5. It's a shame Mr Pain needs these cameos as much as his instrument of choice--without them, the temptation for the listener would be to simply Auto-Tune out.
  6. Dec 13, 2011
    Despite the title's promise of evolution, the record mines the same club-banging, shawty-romancing formula of the singer's boom years, to ever-diminishing returns.
  7. Dec 5, 2011
    With half of rEVOLVEr emulating his older tracks and the other half making strained attempts to branch out into rap and dance, it appears that the rappa ternt sanga simply hasn't found anywhere else to turn.

    It's nice to see T-Pain back. He created good songs but some were not released like, Take Your Shirt Off, Rap Song, Booty Work, and Reverse Cowgirl. The extensive use of auto-tune is another thing. I think, the voice of the old T-Pain (Rappa Ternt Sanga days) is much better than today. Expand

    This is a great album, i highly reccomend it although not as many club anthems as song like Buy u a Drank, Booty Wurk, Rap song, Im sprung, etc etc this is a great album that anyone should buy. As I said, not his best work, but definatly an AMAZING album I like every single track Expand

    Revolver is not the best work we have seen from T-Pain, but it is not horrible. T-Pain has once again restated that Auto Tune is not dead using it to perfect songs such as Its Not You and Sho Time(Pleasure Thang). Along with that he keeps the listeners going with club bangers like Bottlez and Nothin(Deluxe Edition only). Then he preaches the robot blues in songs like Rock Bottom. The Auto Tune effect was little overdone and T-Pain was sometime shown up by his guests. Other than that, the album was another T-Pain original trying to push music to great lengths and heights Expand

    I agree with BeastxMode, it has too many Ballads. Solid project nonetheless. The stand out tracks are "Boom Boom Pow", "Rock Bottom", "Best Love Song" and "Default Picture". Expand
  5. Dec 7, 2011
    A little too much of Ballads, same lyrical content and theme for greater part of the album make it a little less attractive. Appearances from Detail, Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Lily Allen, Pitbull, E-40, Bei Major, R. Kelly & Lil Wayne do gain the spotlight and you instantly recognize the impact of these guests. But the solo Songs are the one's you can feel like skipping at any moment. T-pain's Club Theme on this album fully passes while the bedroom anthems excpet 5 o'Clock fail to make any impact. Expand

    Awful, auto-tune and all. Its not something you should be proud of. The society needs good music, this is not something we can call "good". Try singing without altering your voice, and maybe people will learn to love your music. Expand

    T-Pain Is Terrible only good song was Bang Bang Pow. T-pain Needs to stop rapping and produce more tracks. I give this a 1 for production. T-pain should make instrumental albums then ill give this a 10 Expand
