Britney Spears - Britney - CD Review
Britney Spears has done it again with her 3rd studio album "Britney". With songs like "I'm a Slave 4 U" does Britney's CD have what it takes to keep the princess of pop on top?
Britney Spears is back with her latest studio album, Britney, and the third time around IS the charm. Britney wants to appeal to an older audience and with songs like the steamy I'm A Slave 4 U, I'm sure she'll do just that. It's got unique sounds like scratching, Britney Spears low-talking and um... panting. What more could ya want in a pop song?
Britney Spears' album Britney has a definite theme to it. The message is, don't treat me like a little girl - I'm not as sheltered as you think. Songs like I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet A Woman (co-written by Dido,) Overprotected and What It's Like to Be Me (co-written by her ex-bf Justin Timberlake,) all tell the same story of wanting to be treated like an adult.
One of the biggest booty shakers on the album is Boys. It's got a strong bass beat with cool keyboard noises, which remind me of J. Lo's Play. I wonder if Britney Spears is singing about Justin Timberlake? Britney put a different spin on the Joan Jett classic, I Love Rock 'n' Roll by adding some scratchin' and dance grooves. Don't worry though, she didn't ditch the raunchy guitars. Keep your eyes peeled for this number in Britney Spears' upcoming flick, Crossroads. In the fairy tale-ish Bombastic Love, Britney sings about the perfect movie romance. (Hmm... was this another J.T. reference?)
Britney Spears' Britney album is great except we could have done without Britney's "slow-talking" on so many of the tracks. What started out as a different and unique vocal effect in I'm A Slave 4 U quickly becomes over used. Britney's still a great pop album that is sure to stay at the top of the charts for a long time.
