Returning to English after his Spanish-language album Armando, Miami-based rapper Pitbull goes overboard with the gloss on Planet Pit and winds up with a slick club monster that just gushes with good times. Solid hooks, polished production, cutting-edge tricks, and a star-studded guest list makes this a blockbuster thrill ride, but the reason Planet Pit retains its sense of fun through repeated listens is the mans cool charisma and cheeky attitude. Mommy, no you cant go left/Cause you look so right and Im such a dirty, dirty dog/My teeth will unsnap your bra both figure into the gimmicky highlight Pause while Got it locked-up, like Lindsey Lohan is the best celebrity quip in the massive Give Me Everything, a star-obsessed, money-flashing, sweet ride-driving declaration of opulence that comes with some spicy flavor, making it an easy nomination for Quintessential Miami Club Track. Add some witty adaptations -- Harry Belafontes classic gets the T-Pain and Sean Paul treatment on the electro-calypso Shake Señora -- some grand power ballads -- the Kelly Rowland feature Castle Made of Sand -- and some full-bodied house music -- Took My Love -- and Planet Pit becomes the quintessential Miami club album with an extra dose of mass appeal. This is a hip-hop-flavored club effort of Elephunk proportions and another high-water mark for the don of pop-raps glitter dome. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
