The first rule of house music is functionality, and celebrated French DJ David Guetta is a master of dancefloor pragmatics. The second rule is hooks, and he's got those as well; in fact, his music is unusually interesting for the genre, and generally as much fun to listen to as it is to dance to. His second album is being released in the U.S. on the heels of significant success in his home country, and for its Stateside release, it's enhanced by the addition of several bonus tracks. The punk-kitsch sound of "Money" is curious but fun, and Paul Oakenfold's mix of "The World Is Mine" ends things on a powerfully funky note. ~ Rick Anderson
