Critical response [ edit ]
Upon its release,
Wild Ones received mixed reviews from music critics. At [12 ] Metacritic, which assigns an average rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 54, based on ten reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews". Although he perceived the album's creative scope to be limited, David Jeffries of [12 ] Allmusic called Wild Ones "gimmicky, lightweight, and best taken in small chunks, but get a glitter-friendly crowd together and it gets the party started, succeeding at its one and only goal". He also observed the album's material to be largely "hot, infectious fluff", but felt that the album "would be dragged down by any tacked-on sense of purpose, and thinking of Flo Rida as equal parts thrill seeker and hitmaker is easy". [7 ] However, [7 ] 's Jody Rosen felt the album's production to be too inconsistent, observing that the album's "inhumanly supersized... dance beats" were either "genius" or "insipid", also writing that Flo Rida "[is] content to surrender center-stage on his producers". Rolling Stone [11 ]
