Evacuate the Dancefloor is the third studio album released by German dance act Cascada. It was released in the United Kingdom on July 6, 2009, a week after the lead single "Evacuate the Dancefloor".

Evolution of their dance music

With the release of their first single "Evacuate the Dancefloor", people heard their sound change toward modern electropop and dance. Cascada's lead singer Natalie Horler explained that "You do evolve and progress and we're very proud of what's come of it." trying to distance themselves from Lady Gaga's electropop sound. Previews of the album began to appear on YouTube on June 23, 2009. The lead single, Evacuate the Dancefloor, features a variety of synthesizers. Different basslines and new instrument sounds contrast to the traditional style of Cascada of which was the only styling used in previous songs.

"Fever" for instance features a standard dance music beat with electropop synths, also similar to the house genre of Benny Benassi and David Guetta, and is also the only song on the albums that has profanity. "Ready Or Not" is a monumental throbathon that's a throwback to the cheesy floor-fillers of the 90s eurodance. "Hold On", "Dangerous" and "Everytime I Hear Your Name" are classy eurodance anthems with pulsating beats, swirling synths and vocoder effects. "Breathless" mimics Kelly Clarkson's pop-rock sound with pulsating synths and the drum beats of "Evacuate the Dancefloor".

Critical reception

Evacuate the Dancefloor received mixed reviews. Billboard Magazine was in favor of the album claiming "it repeats that single's formula: combining Horler's teen-bop vocals with a walloping, turbo-charged kick drum that could fit in a warehouse rave. They favored songs like "Everytime I Hear Your Name", "What About Me", "Ready or Not" and "Fever". Digital Spy found the album altogether bleak stating "Horler shows all the conviction of a session singer trilling her way through a demo while her mind focuses in on the pay cheque".CD Kritik reviews were in favor of the album saying "it offers no surprises, but impresses with its lush pop production." "All of the following numbers are consistently danceable and genuine bad-mood-killer." "The producers have done the best job. By listening to [Horler's] desire for perfection, the songs are structured and powerfully made." David Jeffries of Allmusic favored the album, saying "Less dreamy and more thumping, the sound here isn't that far from Lady GaGa or Katy Perry's material, but with lyrics that are generally positive and lead singer Natalie Horler remaining effervescent as ever, fans will immediately be able to identify these tracks as the floor-filling act they love." HMV: Although the album comprises of different genres of music compared to the previous albums 'Everytime We Touch' and 'Perfect Day' including House and R'n'B, it does promise fans that the "usual" Cascada anthems undertone is still present in full force.According to Canadian magazine YouThink, the album "captures a whole new audience and captivates the dance nation." They praised 'Fever' and favored 'Everytime I Hear Your Name'.
