    "Whistle", takes a sidestep with its acoustic guitar and tedious single-entendre hook, but there are plenty more brutal stompers to spare on Wild Ones.

    On his fourth album, Wild Ones, there's a distinct Flo Rida-shaped hole where his personality once was--and it's been filled with other people's songs.

    Here he largely defers to producers (including Dr. Luke) and guest stars (Sia, J. Lo), and watches the cash roll in.

    If you play this album really loud – and leave your brain marinating in formaldehyde on a shelf for a half-hour – it's crudely effective. Play it a second time, and you may want to kill yourself.

    Wild Ones is an unfilfilling [sic] and detached listen.

    If your a Flo-rida fan how can you be fine with a 9 track album that cost $11.99 when u can buy each track for 1.29 & save money? Enough ofIf your a Flo-rida fan how can you be fine with a 9 track album that cost $11.99 when u can buy each track for 1.29 & save money? Enough of that Flo-rida is one of those artists where he hijacks old songs turn them into pop and get them to become 4x-6x platnium. his singles might be successful but this album wont go gold Full Review »

    I mean, you get what you ask for. He's not an artist who's made to make albums. The songs don't vary on subject matter; they all are aboutI mean, you get what you ask for. He's not an artist who's made to make albums. The songs don't vary on subject matter; they all are about partying and sex. But that's why anyone likes Flo Rida. 'Good Feeling' seems like it came out ages ago, but it's still a fun, great song, and every other song is basically a variation of it. Nothing strays too far out of the formula, which is why this album just comes up short in all honesty. Don't buy this album expecting deep stuff - it's radio fodder. But it can be fun radio fodder, so it's up to you. Full Review »
