Music Review – LMFAO “Sorry for Party Rocking”


 By: Josue “Josh” Alvarez Mapp

Well the boys are back in town.  LMFAO is releasing the long awaited album “Sorry for Party Rocking.”  So what’s the news?  Here it is.

It’s not that the album sucks, because it doesn’t.  But there isn’t much different to expect.  Which is good in my opinion.  As much as people like to see and/or hear their artist “grow,” sometimes that leads to growing pains.  Thus, it is always safer for an artist to stick to what works for them.  Lady Gaga changed her sound up a bit (though most of you who don’t like her won’t notice because her music still sucks to you, but trust me, there is a difference between Fame and Born This Way).

Anyways, the duo stuck to their electronica influences fusing it with hip hop.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.  Overall, the album sticks to their theme they created, party rock (hence the title, by the way).  The only thing I don’t like is the intro song, “Rock the Beat II”.  It was meant to be funny and hahaha, but it really just takes time from getting into what you want to hear.  BUT DON’T SKIP IT! (Because me typing that in caps will stop you).  After the weird vocal exchange, the song breaks into dubstep.  You should enjoy it.

If you don’t listen to the radio, “Party Rock Anthem” is the first single released.  Overall, the album is very club’esque.  It reminds me of Black Eyed Peas’ “The E.N.D.” album.  Why?  Because with “The E.N.D.,” you can play it from start to finish and dance to it all.  It flowed and had a good overall beat to enjoy.  Well in “Sorry for Party Rocking,” they stick to party rock (which is really not so rock but electronica and hip hop, for those who didn’t know).

My two other favorite songs on the album are “Sexy And I Know It” and “Put That A$$ To Work.”  Mind you, they are all great, but those songs are the ones that will make it onto my playlists more frequent than others.  There are a few songs that are actually nice and sweet (to reminisce to “La La La” from their last album).  One such song is “With You”.

Overall, it’s a good album.  If you liked their last album, you will like this one too.  It hits the e-shelves (and physical ones too) on June 21st (so not too far away).  So when it comes out be sure to go legally download it from iTunes or Amazon, or stream it through whatever service you may use (or God forbid you go biking, walking, skateboarding or something else recreational to the nearest, or not so nearest, retailer to buy a physical CD.  But who does that these days?).

I would like to say you can expect to hear this on my show Club KSSU, but until clean tracks come out, you will have to sit tight and chill (sorry, FCC).  But for the 18+, go out clubbing this weekend and if the DJ is good, they will spin a track or two just for you.  So be sure to go check out the tracks.

You should still tune into my show on Wednesdays from5 PM to 7 PM at KSSU.com though, as similar music run through my show.  Sorry for the inconvenience, and sorry for party rocking.

  1. I pretty much agree with it all. I bought this album, so I know. Hence the name of my show “Party Rock Shock”.
