Miami Glamourous House is a combination of the sample-heavy fast beat of the late '90s and the disco-influenced house that Daft Punk brought to the mainstream. Either way, the music here is chosen quite well, reflecting the trends and attitudes of 2001-2002 without relying on huge pop songs or dated novelty tracks. The music here is very party-friendly, from the aggressive robotic funk of Cosmostar's "Who, What, When, Where [Basshead Vocal]" to Antoine Clamaran's mutant disco anthem "Do the Funk." If viewed as a dance and/or party CD, there are really no slow moments because the songs flow together nicely and the music lends itself to techno-fueled fun. However, when seen as an album to listen to, there are obvious flaws that apply to most of the music in this genre (i.e., repetition, lack of substance, etc.). But despite these issues, the album is still a fine exercise in booty shaking that should be viewed as no more, no less.
