  1. The Boatlift [is] a fun floor-filler, but just not up to Pitbull's usual standards.
  2. For better or worse, the story of Boatlift concerns more the production and song structures than Pitbull's own rapping.
  3. Pitbull's signature combination of clever, in-your-face Spanglish lyrics and frenetic dance beats is at its best on this album, where he plays to his less excessively crude sensibilities.
  4. He may not be the deepest lyricist on earth, and his attempts at bedroom music may fall flat, but he makes a mean soundtrack for a night out.
  5. Vibe

    The Boatlift solidifies Pitbull's position as one of the most diverse party MCs aound. And little else. [Feb 2008, p.86]
