AllMusic

Sorry for Party Rocking arrives at exactly the right time and includes exactly the right mix of energy and humor, plus a surprising amount of sincerity.

A.V. Club

Sorry For Party Rocking is a dumb party record that knows it’s a dumb party record. But while self-awareness seems like a cultural “Get Out Of Jail Free” card these days, it doesn’t make LMFAO any less obnoxious.

Entertainment Weekly

The L.A. duo strip dance-pop to its most basic elements, slathering endorphin-stimulating synth riffs over extra-stoopid techno drums. It’s topped off by truly terrible rapping, which often turns otherwise groan-inspiring instrumentals into jumbled, maddening filler.

PopMatters

If you’re contemplating buying an album called Sorry for Party Rocking, then let’s be honest: you know exactly what you’re getting into.

Sorry For Party Rocking is the worst kind of bad album, offering no captivating moments of sonic excrement and presenting plenty of awful crap upon further listening.

Rolling Stone
MC-DJs Redfoo and Sky Blu turn in some skillful hip-hop – see “Take It to the Hole,” featuring Busta Rhymes – but also get seriously stupid, rapping about spanking girls and bathing in champagne, over a cheesy pastiche of Eighties synths and pounding beats.

No Ripcord

Sorry for Party Rocking incorporates what industry boardrooms deem marketable and manufactures it for the masses, but at least they got the anthem right. Without it, I doubt if even God himself would grant the forgiveness half-heartedly sought in its begrudging title.

The Guardian
Stretched out over an hour, their solitary idea wears unbearably thin: pretty quickly, your reaction is less LMFAO than WTF? and, ultimately, FFS.

NME

It’s not the persistent and aggressive misogyny that is the most soul-destroying thing about the record ... It’s that it’s all ever-so-slightly tongue-in-cheek, with an Epic Movie ability to make their parody far more revolting than the genre it’s parodying. LMFAO understood the pain they would be inflicting on the world and did it anyway. That’s a horrifying thought – even Lucifer had good intentions.

You say MBDTF I say Party Rock
You say TPAB I say Dynamite
You say FLower Boy we say Kidz bop
You say a Crow Looked at Me we say SHUT THE FUCK UP
You say Titanic Rising we say Ke$ha (but like, 2000's era.)

People these days are listening to rap and indie pop. Retweet if your one of the few people who still listen to REAL MUSIC!

1. Rock the Beat II - n/a

2. Sorry for Party Rocking - This is a fucking mess, I can't even tell wtf is even happening! (1/10)

3. Party Rock Anthem - I can't tell if I unironically like this song, if I ironically like this ... read more
