At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has received an average score of 63, based on four reviews.[7] Mikael Wood of the Los Angeles Times calls Party Rock a mixture of the "same pleasures as those remixes: thumping 1980s-inspired beats, instantly catchy synth hooks, shouty catchphrases about how "what happens at the party stays at the party."[8] Ginger Clements of Billboard said that "DJ/rappers Redfoo and Sky Blu (the son and grandson, respectively, of Motown founder Berry Gordy) fulfill all the lyrical requirements for a summer anthem—sunny locale, sexual tension and a liquor-assisted nonstop party."[9] John Bush of Allmusic called Party Rock "an indulgent record with plenty of fun and immaturity, but a real need for a growing musical identity."[10] Jon Dolan of Rolling Stone calls Party Rock "a mixture of sleazy jams, booty boasts and enough irony to clog your Jacuzzi."[11]
