rEVOLVEr - Rolling Stone
Home Music Album Reviews


T-Pain tunes: perfect for lap dances, and sur- prisingly good for extended listening. Still leaning hard on Auto-Tune, Pain concocts song titles to rival R. Kelly and backs them up with slow-jam indulgences testifying to a life of unfettered pleasure. (The piano-accented "Rock Bottom" doesn’t concern an alcoholic's ultimate low; it’s about a sexual position.) In T-Pain's world, ethnicities blur ("Mix'd Girl"), rosé pairs nicely with top-shelf tequila ("Bottlez") and happy hour arrives in the morning (minor hit "5 O'Clock," featuring a deadpan Lily Allen). It gives credit to his cheerily assured worldview that Pain's roboto soul sounds like inspiration.
