Almost all of the songs are good.

Just forget about the album and you'll never have to be bothered with more of the same tiresome trash.
A. Swain
For me being part West Indies, i find that Sean Kingston has a great vibe when it comes to his music.

17 year old Sean Kingston (Kisean Anderson) is rather cute, he doesn't look like the average singer. A bit heavy, but showing his charm by always smiling. He's from Florida but his family is Jamaican and it's said that his uncle is Buju Bunton, Kingston himself uses both American and Jamaican accent. On his debut album he hooks up with producer Jonathan Rotem that produces most of the album. The sound is a mix between reagge, hip hop, doo woop and dancehall. Rotem uses alot of samples, on the superhit "Beautiful Girls", currently at #1 he samples Ben E King's "Stand By Me" but he uses the sample better then most people that sampled it in the past. Kingston sings about beautiful girls but he'll get suicidal when it's over. Particulally the use of the word "suicidal" for "very sad" is hard not to notice. "Me Love" that samples Zeppelin's "D'yer Mak'er" is another great summer smash while "I Can Feel It" samples Phil Collins "In The Air" but with less catchyness. On "There's Nothing" we'll find Paula DaAnda appearing, as one of very few guest appearences here. It's actually the sample-heavy commercial feel good songs that works best where Kingston uses his Jamaican accent and show his incredible charm. The more hardcore Hip Hopish songs where he sings in American-English are not as fun, Like the song "Drummer Boy" or "Kingston" or the annoying "I Ain't Got No Short" but thankfully those songs are in minority. There are 13 songs and a bonus remix of "Colours". What makes this album fun is the hybrid of feel good sound and catchy wordplay on lyrics. It may not be original but compared to simular artists, Kingston is here to have fun and not to get respect and as catchy as the music is, it's hard not to like it. Question is, if anyone will remember him in 2 years?.

Sean Kingston has a unique sound on this CD. Almost all of the songs are good. It is upbeat but not too wild. I really enjoy this CD.

You know, when I first heard the "Beautiful Girls" song, I thought it was catchy... cool song. Then I saw Kingston on the Today show and I thought "cool, maybe this kid will be then next Prince Buster." Kid had a band, a double bass, and all the players were to the nines...

Man, was I wrong. I've listened to most of this album. I know a lot of people have pointed out that "Beautiful Girls" is a rip from "Stand by Me", and they're right... but the song's good enough that I can overlook that. The rest of the album though... Rip off...

I bought this at a discount. I never seemed interested in his music when it first was released but I was pleased at this album. It has a little more maturity and grit to than what the lead single "Beautiful Girls"

At first, I didn't get into Sean Kingston in summer 2007 because I thought he wasn't really going anywhere. If I can tell an artist won't be here in 2 or 3 years, I won't get into them.

But Sean Kingston was iller than expected. He took some tropical music and made a niche for himself. There aren't really too many people like him in the game, and this is about as close as I get to reggaeton right now.

His music is vibrant, hooky, and filled with exuberant lyrics. I don't want to say listen to this while you're on vacation, but it will most likely set the mood.

1) Intro- no rating

2) Kingston- This is kind of an intro track. It sounds like you're in danger. I've never listened to the full cd before, and I don't like the pace of this song. 2 out of 5

3) Take You There- The third single. I like the pace of this song much better. I always say artists are at their best when they're singing, but it's the whole truth. When they make hooky music, the cd is 5 star. You can definitely kick back to this song. One of the best on the whole cd. 5 out of 5

4) Me Love- The second single. Here's a summery single for you. You can sip rum and feel the sand between your toes here. If Sean keeps this up, it's a 5 star cd. It is virtually flawless. Nice and hooky. 5 out of 5

5) Beautiful Girls- The first single. I remember this song from summer 2007. I couldn't escape this hook, or Me Love. All three of these songs are hits, and I recommend basking in the sunshine when listening to them. They can make you lose depression if you're having it. Give these three songs a try if you are new to Sean Kingston. 5 out of 5

6) Dry Your Eyes- Here is a smooth album cut. Those are when the song's not a single, but is as good or better.

For me being part West Indies, i find that Sean Kingston has a great vibe when it comes to his music. Makes the Caribbean people a proud race. Keep it up.
