As 'Party Rock Anthem' went on to achieve, quite frankly, astonishing global success, it comes as little surprise that the remainder of the album fails to expand beyond the group's usual remit of Euro-club beats and au courant electro synths and squiggles. While they have more than proved their worth as a staples of the party scene in 2011, after preceding track 'Sexy and I Know It' and second single 'Champagne Showers', the duo's limited vocabulary - "party", "sexy" and "girlz" - quickly grows tiresome.
Will.i.am collaboration 'Best Night' - a combination of dizzying synths and thumping clap beats reminiscent of Cheryl Cole's '3 Words' - and cool, Calvin Harris-helmed 'Reminds Me Of You' serve as the record's sparse highlights of considered, decently-crafted music; ironically the rare occasions that the group relinquish artistic control. For the most part, Sorry For Party Rocking is another misjudged attempt to combine humour, dance and hip-hop, with their lacking vocal technique and vacuous lyrical content only dragging it down further. If this was their idea of an apology, it would have been more polite to say nothing at all.
