An ill-advised purchase for my wife and sons. After listening, I find myself agreeing with the allmusic review:
The Black Eyed Peas make effective pop/crossover music, but with all the limitations of the form -- vapid lyrics, clumsy delivery, vocals smoothed over by Auto-Tune, and songwriting that constantly strains for (and reaches) the lowest common denominator. The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies) is a mess of pop/dance/rap crossover.I can't overstate my hatred of Auto-Tune. Maybe I'm too old.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #1 (2 weeks between June 27 - July 11, 2009)
Tracks: I hate to admit it, but I Gotta Feeling is catchy. So that's one decent track out of 15.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Today is the first time I've listened to the entire CD from start to finish. It is very long.
