BBC Review

Five years ago, if someone had told you that American hip hop and RnB would be riddled with thumping mid-90s Eurocheese in the not-too-distant future, it's fairly likely you'd have assumed them a tad misguided. Yet here we are, with dance and urban charts largely interchangeable, and the man responsible - in some considerable part, at least - is David Guetta, who continues his evolution from DJ to headline artist via his fifth album, Nothing but the Beat.

But the peculiar fusion of genres is, somehow, no longer that peculiar. With Nothing but the Beat's arrival already heralded by the triumphant meeting of Flo Rida's booming rhymes and the zesty, madcap stutter of Nicki Minaj on Where Them Girls At, Guetta's production wizardry has amassed some gravitas.

The tracklist reads like a Now! album, from the usual suspects (Akon, Taio Cruz, Chris Brown) to marginally less obvious collaborations (Jessie J, Jennifer Hudson). The best results come when Guetta mercilessly rips artists from their comfort zone - take the aforementioned Minaj in songbird mode on Turn Me On, or Sia's ghostly mandolin-esque vocals on Titanium more than holding their own on atop Guetta's bed of frantic zips and twiddles.

And yet Nothing Really Matters, which employs a simpler, more unobtrusive beat alongside a pleasing string loop, contains every trite lyrical clich� imaginable courtesy of will.i.am. "On the floor"? Check. "In the club"? Check. "Party people"? Check. Bragging about pulling supermodels? Check. Asking the DJ to turn it up? Check. It's by far the worst offender here, but hints at the overall lack of innovation Nothing but the Beat is guilty of.

A quick blast would suggest that each track's identity is dependent on its featured vocalist, and while it's true to an extent, there is some fluidity across Nothing but the Beat that solidifies it as an album. Whether you could go so far as to call Guetta an auteur might be pushing it, but it's a cohesive effort, if not quite a work of art. And in terms of genre, it's neither dance nor hip hop; it's David Guetta. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing comes down to a matter of taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING 7 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is SUCH a good album, Guetta has absolutely nailed pretty much every track on here. Wasn't familiar with the electronica section (2nd CD) but it is just as good as the vocal stuff and a chance for him to show his skills without the other collaborators. Best song on here is Titanium, massive club tune, but the rest is not far behind. If you like ANY of Guetta's latest few hits, you will love this whole thing and probably discover a few new tracks. Buy and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great dance album! 27 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent album for dance music lovers, in my opinion not as good as One Love but still worth buying! Collaborating with old favourites like Will.i.am, Akon and Flo Rida as well as new hook ups with Jennifer Hudson, Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz & Chris Brown as well as others, the first CD is great as is the 2nd disc which is instrumental only. Tracks 3 and 10 has left me wondering why they weren't released as the lead single instead of a promotional ones as i believe they're by far the best singles on the album, Repeat ft Jessie J is also worthy of being released as a single.

Where The Girls At - 8/10
Little Bad Girl - 8/10
Turn Me On - 10/10
Sweat - 9/10
Without You - 9/10
Nothing Really Matters - 6/10
I Can Only Imagine - 8/10
Crank It Up - 7/10
I Just Wanna F - 7/10
Night of Your Life - 10/10
Repeat - 9/10
Titanium - 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars David Guetta Album 20 Oct 2013
By Hanson
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best albums I have bought for my collection, it has all the hits guetta has released. Also I like the fact it comes with 2 CD's so you don't have to listen to the DJ instrumental CD which isn't so good. This is a very good CD.
