Taio Cruz, a British producer and songwriter turned singer/rapper (a la Timbaland), has been responsible for a large quantity of irresistible electro-pop/R&B confections since 2008, and several of them are cobbled together here on the U.S. edition of his overall second album, `Rokstarr.'

What's amusing is that minus the #1 single "Break Your Heart," follow-up "Dirty Picture," "No Other One," "Feel Again" and "Falling In Love," not a single one of the other five tracks from the original UK version of `Rokstarr' made the tracklisting here. This is moderately understandable, since the original album wasn't all that exciting, save its singles, all of which are included on the U.S. release. Several tracks here are in fact from his debut, `Departure,' which was actually a great album, but was unfortunately never released in the states.

UK smash and U.S. breakout "Break Your Heart" deserves its success; it's a pounding, pulsating dance romp with an infectious chorus, whose U.S. version benefits from the almost-always-enjoyable Ludacris verse. On the original album, nothing else rocked quite as hard, but thankfully "Dynamite," an all-new U.S. exclusive track, comes close. This joyful and heavily danceable thumper tweaks and twerks along to the electro-noises found frequently throughout Ke$ha's album.

The aforementioned electro-pop tart also just happens to make a notable contribution to "Dirty Picture," the album's second single and heaviest nod to pure electronica. "Take Me Back" was originally a highly successful collaboration with rapper Tinchy Stryder in the UK, but on the U.S. edition of `Rokstarr,' it appears as a solo cut, featuring just Taio Cruz's vocals.

WOW!
I heard the two singles on the radio, but had no idea who it was, I knew I liked the songs just didn't know their origin.
Now thanks to Amazon's delightful, based on your likings recommendation page I came across this and downloaded it.
Surprisingly I am impressed by this U.K. artist. Every song flows beautifully leading into the next.
He has a smooth silky voice and a great delivery...if you can get your hands on this, do it!

I didn't know much at all about Taio Cruz prior to downloading this album. I had heard "Break Your Heart" on the radio and that was about it. This turned out to be a good album. I love working out to this music, and it's equally good just to listen or dance to. I got this at a great price from Amazon and that makes it even better. Great album, can't wait to hear more from Taio in the future.

This is a highly enjoyable album. My favorite songs are Dynamite and Dirty Picture. Only Ke$ha could have pulled this one off and it works! My only gripe is that there are tracks missing that were on the original UK release. I can understand adding songs (Dynamite is superb) but keeping songs off the US version is a move that puzzles me. Why not just include every original song AND add more? Despite that, this is a great release and I highly recommend it to any pop-lover out there.

I am very disappointed. Just ordered this for my nephew's birthday, and it does not have the one song he wanted. When I ordered this album, it claimed to have the song "Dynamite". It does not. I will be returning it.

The CD was advertised as having both "Dynamite" and "Break Your Heart" listed but when I opened the package and checked the CD, "Dynamite" was not present. I don't think I'll be keeping this. I'll probably have better luck on Ebay or at Amoeba Music.

I ordered this exclusively for the song Dynamite. It was not on the CD I received, yet it was on the song list in the description. I ordered it July 16, 2013 and received it on July 24, 2013 and my return window ended July 24, 2013. That means I would only be entitled to a partial return, had I actually had time to return it. Trouble is, I had opened it, assuming I received what I ordered (silly me) and returns must be unopened, so I can't even get the partial credit. What really irritates me is that in looking at previous reviews (after the fact) I see that this issue had already been reported and yet Amazon has done nothing to fix this. I'll take my business elsewhere. Even if I have to pay more, I will find a source that believes in true customer service. UPDATE 07/28/2013 I contacted Amazon customer service and they have refunded my money, and offered to replace the CD with free shipping. They have gone above and beyond what I would have expected and restored my trust in shopping with Amazon and their customer service. They are notifying the proper departments and giving their full effort to see this doesn't happen again. Thank you Amazon!

I FIRST SAW AND HEARD OF HIM ON A NEW YEARS EVE SPECIAL WHICH I THINK WAS DICK CLARKS COUNTDOWN. I THOUGHT, WHO IS THIS GUY AND DIDNT PAY HIM MUCH ATTENTION. SOMEHOW I LISTENED TO DYNAMITE AND THOUGHT YEAH I KNOW THIS SONG, THEN I HEARD ANOTHER AND SAID, HEARD THIS ONE TOO. THEN HEARD A THIRD SO I DOWNLOADED THIS FOR ONLY $5 AND WHAT A DEAL. THIS WHOLE CD IS AWESOME. EVEN THE SLOWER SONGS ARE GREAT. I WOULD DEFINATELY SUGGEST GIVING IT A TRY. THERE ARE VERY FEW CD'S WHERE I ENJOY EVERY SONG AND I DO THIS ONE. IT'S DYNAMITE FOR SURE.
