This is a very good album, even better than his first one. I love the fact that the well known songs are different versions on the album. Also great value for money. In a world where artists are releasing 10 track albums it's great to get a full length one (17 tracks)
Go and buy it!!

This album is AMAZING!!! I love how Taio puts all of his heart into writting the lyrics of these songs. The album name is fantastic Rokstarr. My favorite songs of this album are:
1) Take Me Back ft. Tinchy Stryder
2) Dirty Picture ft. Ke$ha
3) Break Your Heart
All the songs are amazing but these were the 3 songs that really stood out for me. The lyrics in them were amazing and it's obvious it took Taio a long time to write each of these 3 songs, And his voice was so beautiful singing them. It would be amazing if Taio teamed up with Ne-Yo for his next album because you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between them. I defenetly reccommend Rokstarr to every Taio fan out there because it is well worth the money.

Mr Cruz's second album is a pop album and a very good one.
The twelve tracks in this collection have their sights
on the middle of the dancefloor and this is where they will
find many new friends and feel most at home.

He has learned his lessons well; understanding how to create
just the right balance between beats and melody (and there are
some infectiously big beats here as well as satisfying tunes).

'No Other One' is a good example of his lightness of touch.
(Lose the vocoder and it would have been almost perfect).
The layered staccato yodel-like incidental harmonies are a hoot.

However cliched, 'Forever Love' is destined to be another hot
favorite underneath that great-disco-ball-in-the-sky!
Stonking great slabs of sound to hurl yourself around to wantonly.
(Only if that is your inclination of course !)

The pace doesn't let up too often. 'Best Girl' is just about
as laid-back as things get but it is a somewhat lacklustre song.
'Feel Again' is a much stronger composition which allows Mr Cruz
to show off his not inconsiderable vocal talents.
When he hits those risky top notes he has the ability to
raise a goosebump or two. It is a fine performance.

Highlights would have to include 'Dirty Picture' with its
teasingly risque lyrical subject and a grinding synth motif
worthy of Mr Oizo at his most raucous.
I particularly enjoyed 'Keep Going' for its uplifting killer chorus.

Dance, pop and a soulful voice have come together here
in a persuasively convincing way. It is a feel-good album
and we all need to feel good sometimes don't we?

Keep one eye over your shoulder Ne Yo I'm thinking !

Recommended.

This is such a diverse album. It has soooooo many different genre's of music on it, and collabs with NDubz and Tinchy, both of which are INCREDIBLE. If you like dance music, rnb, garage, drum and bass..... You will like songs on this album, and it includes the HUUUUUUGE number 1 Break Your Heart, what more could you want?

This is Taio's second album, and i must say, its much better than his first!
I was a fan anyway so i was pleased to see him bounce back with the song 'break your heart'. Its so catchy, and its also great that new artist Ke$ha features on the album, on the second track. This isnt one to be missed - recommended!

Great album, well worth the money. Nice to see the UK RnB has died a death. However I believe this album is more dance than RnB. Not as fresh as his first album, as most tracks sound kinda similar but great music to workout too!

Taio's 2nd album is a fun album, with first single Break Your Heart an immediate hit.
It also has some familiar faces including Tinchy Stryder and Ke$ha on the album!
Definately a hit, get this album!

This is a good album overall, I'll get that out of the way now. It's clearly in the dancefloor filler stylee which is a nice perk up for the winter months.
But...

1) Taio is vocoded to within an inch of his life yet again, when I'm sure he can actually sing.
2) We're paying to hear the lead track from Departure "I'll never love again"... AGAIN! What's with that?

And if you have Tinchy Stryder's Catch 22, you're another track down already. So in effect we're only getting 10 tracks here of mixed quality.

That's a shame and a bit tight. Hopefully the next Taio outing is an evolution rather than more of the same.
