    Tail Cruz's debut solo album is a collection of horrible, cheesy pop dongs. I strongly recommend against it. Especially that uber-annoying "Break Your Heart" song. He needs to just stick with producing.

    Well made, yet utterly forgettable. This is the epitome of pop-by-numbers. It's not a bad album as such, it's just unbelievably generic. A little more creativity would've been nice.

    This album made me cry, what ever happened to REAL pop?! Not this horse **** made for money. It lacks in substance, made from repetitive lyrics, lame plastic beats- you know what? This **** storm doesn't deserve such an in depth review.

    Cruz's first effort falls flat when it comes to make him an artist to notice. It is a very impersonal album, created to achieve temporal success single-wise ("Break Your Heart", "Dynamite), but it is incapable of maintaining its mainstream appeal during the whole record., becoming just a boring and unattractive list of simple tracks.

    Highlights: Dynamite, Higher, Break Your Heart

    The songs are good, but no songs really stick. Like "Break Your Heart". You like the song at first, but you can't stand it a month later when it's still number one on the charts.

    Esse álbum é horrível, poucas músicas são boas, instrumental totalmente repetitivo e composições podres, esse álbum poderia ser um álbum totalmente moderno porém acabou virando algo cansativo.
    As únicas que salvam são Higher,Dirty Picture e Break Your Heart

  1. Rokstarr bounces to a beat that feels fresh and vibrant.
  2. You can forgive Cruz for wondering who he's meant to be for his second album, but we're less indulgent of such wishy-washy nonsense that "Rokstarr" puts across in the name of heartfelt R&B.
  3. The only song of equal caliber to [''Break Your Heart"] on his Stateside debut is the Ke$ha-assisted sexting number ''Dirty Picture.'' The rest of the tracks are forgettable and include a cut for throwing hands in the air (''Dynamite'') and one awkwardly placed effort to uplift (''I Can Be'').
