AllMusic Review by

Sneering on the inner sleeve, giving you the devil-horn salute in the booklet, and holding back her pitbull on the back cover, you'd think DJ Irene was going to be mashing up Judas Priest with some gabba techno or something. Well, there are a lot of sampled guitars on Rockstar, but it's more hard rock's over-the-top attitude that paints this mix, one that will make dance snobs whimper and beg for mercy. Slick, hard house tracks get their two to three minutes before it's on to the next one in DJ Irene's world, creating a hectic, party atmosphere that's off the hook. Sensation's "The Anthem 2004" offers a bit of a breather before Irene goes from angry house to even angrier drum'n'bass for the middle of the disc. Then it's back to house for the final third of the album, which brings it down a notch. Good thing too because otherwise you'd have to go out and start some fires just to calm down. Without a doubt a loud "you have to be in the mood for it" dance mix, but it's got tons of brash attitude and Irene can sling them tunes faster and fiercer than most. Buckle up!
