    Forget the World plays more like a collection of 12"s than a well-tempered album.

    This is an album steeped in the anthemic feel of pop from decades past.

    It quickly becomes evident that Forget the World is less an album than a haphazard collection of B-sides and leftovers that were for whatever reason deemed unmarketable as singles.

    The best efforts are Dynamite, featuring Snoop Dogg, with its low-slung Cali feel, and Three Strikes, which bangs--and features the vocals of Martine McCutcheon's husband, Jack McManus ("one, two, three, get the fuck up"). The worst is everything else.

    This album was extremely disappointing for me as a huge fan of almost every Dance artist.

    This album was extremely disappointing for me as a huge fan of almost every Dance artist.

    I wouldn't have even known about this album if I hadn't heard "Ten Feet Tall" on the radio.

    The original was way better with just Wrabel. Afrojack just watered it down with Generic radio/pop EDM.

    As for the rest of the album, it's very underdone.

    Ten Feet Tall, although painfully generic, is one of the best here.
    Illuminate isn't terrible, but the drop is still kind of generic.
    Born To Run has one of the crappiest drops I've ever heard. Completely Lackluster!!!
    Freedom starts out with potential, but the drop is mediocre at best.
    Towards the end of The Spark, the drop gets better with more bass, but before that it's bland and lazy.
    Dynamite is okay, but it isn't great. The drop is pretty basic here.
    Too Wild isn't bad, because there isn't a drop ( not that I know of ) but it's not great.
    Three Strikes sounds like just a filler track on here, barely any substance.
    Catch Tomorrow has good vocals on the drop ( the woah oh stuff ) but the music is weak
    We'll Be Ok is another generic song ft. Wrabel that could've been better with a different DJ
    Mexico is okay, but lacks substance
    Keep Our Love Alive is alright, generic drop.
    Faded is just pretty redundant
    As Your Friend is halfway decent, but Afrojack just has these really weak and bland drops and beats,
    Do or Die is just generic
    Sovereign Light Café has a weak and lazy drop.

    There wasn't one really good song on this album. It's grown on me slightly but this is too generic and watered down. Good vocals, but the music ruins this entire thing.
