Following his UK number one smash 'On the Floor' with Jennifer Lopez, his very own platinum selling hit single 'Give Me Everything' and a Top 20 album, Pitbull is set to release a new version of 'Planet Pit' that will be the Party album of the Summer. With bonus tracks 'I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)' and 'Hotel Room Service', this new version of 'Planet Pit' now features four hit singles that have sold over 1.1M copies between them.

One of my concerns about any CD, particularly in the field of electronic music. would be the quality of the recorded sound. Some electronic music has outstanding sound and some is atrocious. As a standard for sound quality, I listen to a few tracks on my "Random Album Title" CD by deadmau5 to adjust my hearing intake and my stereo system. I play it fairly loud and adjust the sound to come out crisp and clear. Then I put the Pitbull CD on. The "Planet Pit" sound comes across as fairly good, but not equal or ideal. It's a little too loud, for one thing. I like loud music, I might add, and I played the Pitbull CD at the same volume as the "Random Album Title" CD, but the Pitbull sound came across as uncomfortably loud. Evidently, the producers intend it to be that way, but I had to turn it down a notch for comfortable listening. Also, a lot of the sounds on the Pitbull CD are so blended together they come across as a pulsating sonic mush rather than distinctive and independent sound lines.
I'm surprised at how hip-hop oriented the music is. Also, the East Indies influence surprises me, but I'm just not that familiar with Pitbull. That doesn't bother me any, it's excellent dance music and would be good stuff to play at a party. The vocals seem somewhat overwhelming. I should add that I prefer electronic music with a minimum of vocals. This recording has way too many for my particular tastes, and I don't particularly care for the involved lyrics, if I can understand them. Also, I don't particularly like the way the vocals are blended together as if everything is coming from one or two vocalists, which may well be the case.
"Planet Pit" is not a bad CD at all. I can easily understand it's popularity. It's just not a good fit for my listening and musical tastes (more toward things like deadmau5 or Daft Punk), but that doesn't mean it's a bad record. I have problems with the production qualities of the CD, however, and it effects my listening pleasure in the negative.
100 on the rhythm and 95 on the beat, if I was voting w/Dick Clark back then.
At first one might think that this type of music seems to be a bit "girly", being played by teenies in their bedroom w/ posters of the respective artist on their walls, but at the end it is okay to like it; especially when youre mingling @ a social gathering (read: disco) with girls going crazy on the dance floor whilst this type of music is being played on the background. If you like this niche, make sure you check out black eyed peas, lmfao, rihanna, chris brown, usher, lady gaga, katy perry, nicki minaj, jessie j, don omar (idon and beyond), david guetta, flo rida, drake, afrojack ect etc.
