Review : LMFAO - Party Rock
Latimesblogsfamily newspaper. What is safe for these pages, though, says just about everything you need to know about these guys' worldview: "Get crazy, get wild / Let's party, get loud," shouts MC Sky Blu in "Get Crazy," one of the 14 virtually interchangeable odes to night life naughtiness here.
Sky Blu and his producer partner Redfoo already are well known within the bottle-service set for their high-energy remixes of hits by A-listers like Fergie, Kanye West and Katy Perry. And though it consists of the group's own material, "Party Rock" offers the same pleasures as those remixes: thumping '80s-inspired beats, instantly catchy synth hooks, shouty catchphrases about how "what happens at the party stays at the party."...full text
BillboardHollywood-based duo LMFAO sets hip-hop swagger to electro-pop beats on "I'm In Miami Trick," a breakout Hot 100 hit and the lead single off the Interscope artist's "Party Rock" album. "Hey! You lookin' kinda cute in that polka dot bikini, girl / Hey! This is what I want to do / Take off that polka dot bikini, girl," goes the bridge, over a spunky, pulsating synth groove.

The liner notes for Party Rock do indeed include dancefloor polaroids of beautiful babes, but also plenty of shiny robots smiling for the camera. For their full-length debut, Party Rock, the dance hit "I'm in Miami Bitch" is firmly in place, and still sounding pretty hilarious as a satirical exposé of the hedonistic Winter Music Conference held every year. Sky Blu and Redfoo have almost as many laugh lines in their lyrics as the Lonely Island, even if their production aesthetic shows more than a little knowledge of Spank Rock. They're solid producers overall, even if they run out of song ideas halfway through the album (no extra points for being able to predict the theme or lyrics of "What Happens at the Party" or "Leaving U 4 the Groove"). Pitched somewhere between a self-aware BrokeNCYDE and more sincere party rap (as crazy as that sounds), Party Rock is an indulgent record with plenty of fun and immaturity, but a real need for a growing musical identity....full text
