Every OTHER album he releases is good

"I remember watching a commercial a few months ago that spotlighted an album of current R&B "hits", and at one point they mentioned Shaggy. And I said, "Shaggy has a song out?" After the success of "It Wasn't Me" and "Angel" back in '01, Shaggy kind of disappeared...or so I thought. But after hearing this album, I'm starting to think that maybe disappearing would have been a better move.The problem with this album, besides the fact that Shaggy went back to announcing his name at the beginning of every track, is that it really has nothing to offer. This is evidenced best by a bad choice for the leadoff single, "Hey Sexy Lady". But the rest of the songs aren't that great either. "Shake Shake Shake" is really lazy, "Leave Me Alone" is atrocious, and "Get My Party On" (featuring Chaka Khan) isn't much more than embarrassing (that song isn't even that fast, so how could you party to it anyway?). Even Barrington Levy fails to impress on "Full Control".The rest of the songs on here are just weird. "We Are The Ones" and "Lost" make no sense. And the album ends with a hidden bonus track, which is an obligatory song featuring Sean Paul, a 1990-flavored remix of "Hey Sexy Lady". And that song also does nothing to help matters. The only way you'll really have a Lucky Day is if you don't hear this album.Anthony Rupert"
