The best thing about LMFAO is its name precisely because it’s unclear whether the joke’s on its party rap inspirations or the listeners lapping it up. Graduates of the ironic-because-it’s-insipid school, the Los Angeles duo gets 2Live in the house with enough “booties popping” to deafen a man. Plying rhymes like “Hey-ho, I’m a gigolo,” threatening to “slap you like your daddy,” or suggesting “if you wanna have fun and do something crazy, flash your titties,” their Party Rock debut goes back to crunk’s strip-club roots, with goofy shout-along anthems about fat asses, liquor and getting blown like a whistle. Which is fine, if all you want to do is throw your hands in the air, but it’s a bit juvenile even by Lil Jon’s standards. Sure, dance club hedonism and hip-hop braggadocio go together like hot dogs and buns, but why drink bug juice when you can pass the Courvoisier? (Chris Parker)
