    Not his best, not his worst. Jennifer Lopez kinda ruined Sweet Spot. There are some very great songs on this album, such as Whistle, Wild Ones and I Cry.

    Is Flo Rida good at making catchy, irresistable hit singles? Sure. However, is he capable of making a memorable studio album? Not at all. I'm convinced at least 95 percent uses the same bassline and hook. The songs are generic; using basic dance-pop elements without any kind of innovation. Flo Rida's rap vocals are decent, however, they're mediocre when compared to serious rap artists. IfIs Flo Rida good at making catchy, irresistable hit singles? Sure.

If you're looking for a fun time and nothing but, I'd recommend certain singles. "Wild Ones" features a beautifully sang hook by Austrailian recording artist Sia, who makes the song a hit in its own right. "Good Feeling", the album's lead single, practically steals Etta James' retro hook in Avicii's "Le7els" and turns it into a formulaic pop radio jam. Even $6.99 is overpriced when it comes to this wannabe dance-pop album. Expand

    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 thisI mean, you get what you ask for. He's not an artist who's made to make albums.

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. Expand

    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.

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