    Buy it, enjoy it, and forget it. It's a fun bit of fluff.

    He has numerous potential chart-toppers here thanks to a well-tested formula.

    This stuff might not add up to a great album, but Wild Ones could at least win second prize in a beauty contest.

    It's gimmicky, lightweight, and best taken in small chunks, but get a glitter-friendly crowd together and it gets the party started, succeeding at its one and only goal.

    "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.

    Wild Ones has two of Flo's top 40-obliterating recent singles, "Good Feeling" (in which he hijacks Avicii's "Le7els") and the title track....The rest is serviceable work for the clubland meat grinder.

    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 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 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 »

    This is the most annoying, repetitive and weak album I ever seen, all singles with featuring, this guy can't make a music by himself? Yes! Simply because he just know how to rap, he don't know how to make music, he need people and featuring to make several parts of him musics. Full Review »
