Group mastermind will.i.am's attempt at social commentary on 'Now Generation' comes off more like an ''I just got DSL!'' laundry list. But when the group's glitchy future-funk beats sync up with Fergie's unabashedly feminine melodies, as on the sweetly insidious 'Meet Me Halfway,' they find pure Top 40 nirvana.
Jan 4, 2012Definitely the best album i have ever listened in 10 years.Well the hype was huge because we've waited for 5 years for a new album from BEP.I bought the physical deluxe edition of the album in its first week.First of all the concept of the album is perfect.The transform of the group is really successful indeed.My fave from the album is ''Electric City''.I don't know why but that song just got me so hard.The album's production is perfect.
I mean even the words are not enough to describe how good this album is.
Huge synths + amazing lines and joyful tunes.
Even Black Eyed Peas can't top this album.Their greatest work… Expand
JayCSep 8, 2009Awesome album. Have no idea what the critcs who gave it low scores thought. Its a fun album.
Oct 11, 2010The E.N.D is slightly less annoying and slightly more catchy than it's predecessor 'Monkey Business' but it's not a big improvement. It's very similar to Monkey Business in that it starts off well but slowly deteriorates with fillers nearer the end. 'Boom Boom Pow' is catchy Pop/Electrofunk that encapsualtes the current 2nd wave of electro music. 'Meet Me Halfway' is another pop orientated song but is more mid tempo and it cools you down after you've just danced your ass off to 'Rock That Body'. The later tracks however, are boring and so commercial not even the pop market is yet the embrace them. These include the strange song' Now Generation', it neither embraces or criticises the world we live in today and 'One Tribe' very much like 'Union' from Monkey Business which is a forgetful song asking for world peace. The album is an improvement on Monkey Business but nothing on the albums before Fergie or Elephunk.… Expand
MattCAug 29, 2009Never been a fan but after being assaulted by their singles every day this summer is was hard to not at least check it out. The singles are catchy, obviously made as throwaway pop and if that is all your looking for it does it's job great but the album as a whole is weak and will be forgotten as soon as the last single is taken off the constant airplay.… Expand
yasinmJun 11, 2009I have been a black eyed peas fan since everything that came after que dices, and i can say that this is the worst album ever. I was anticipating this album for a while and it really dissapointed me, a lot of the funk and rap is just gone and there has been waaay too much computer voice stuff added to it. I couldn't listen to anysong except boom boom pow for more than 10 seconds.… Expand
TmanHJun 13, 2009Anyone who listened beyond 'Bridging the Gap', and 'Behind The Front' would be bitterly disappointed unless mere 'pop' music is something you enjoy. Rhythmically and lyrically disingenuous is the most concise I could be about this album.… Expand
