Biography

Britney Spears was born in Kentwood, Louisiana on December 2, 1981. Appearing in variety shows and choirs throughout her hometown, Britney’s talent was obvious from a young age. The aspiring young performer’s first major audition was for The Disney Channel’s “Mickey Mouse Club” at the age of eight. Too young for the show, but too talented to dismiss, a Disney ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Poor old Britney Spears hasn’t exactly had a good time of it lately, what with her recent lackluster MTV performance and dubious appearances all over the tabloids. Blackout, her fifth studio album, is being touted as a bit of a comeback album, the title allegedly alluding to how she is "blacking out" all negative media coverage and focusing on getting back to form. Backed by an array of superstar beatmakers--Bloodshy & Avant, Pharrell Williams, T-Pain, Danja--Blackout presents a soundtrack that brims with trashy new-wave ‘nowness’. Tunes veer from the highly infectious "Freakshow" and "Toy Soldier" to the unconvincingly lascivious "Get Naked," "Ooh, Ooh Baby", and downright uninspiring ("Radar" and "Hot As Ice")--with some inroads into dirty disco ("Heaven on Earth") along the way. The tunes aren’t bad, but the brittle, robotic soundtrack does start to feel dated and dull, especially when Britney’s vocals are so intensely processed they feel equally starchy and disinterested. Comeback album it may be, but "Blackout" doesn’t point towards any clear future for Britney--nor for pop music in general. --Danny McKenna

BBC Review

Since 2003's In The Zone, memories of Britney Spears - the musician - have been fading fast. The spell-binding "Toxic" is now just another ringtone, her sexy, sweaty live shows are locked in the video archives and names like Rihanna, Shakira and Beyonce all roll off the tongue before that of the former pop princess.

Impeccable timing, then, for a comeback album that came out of nowhere. For most of 2007, Britney's return had been nothing but a whisper, then suddenly her record label are shouting from the rooftops! and for good reason.

With the backing of producers Nate 'Danja' Hills, Sean Garrett, Bloodshy & Avant and Pharrell Williams, Blackout hasn't exactly been rushed onto the shelves. Quite the opposite. This is highly detailed electro-pop, so produced it's almost distracting. Much will be said of Britney's processed vocals, and admittedly they grate on "Radar" and "Break The Ice", but they are in keeping with the album as a whole. Hip hop, dance, crunk, RnB and electronica all get tapped up on a record that feels like a relentless party; make of that what you will.

Lyrically, it's hardly challenging. With a wide supporting cast of writers, the same ground often gets covered. Sailing close to the wind on "Get Naked", "Hot As Ice" and "Perfect Lover", Spears goes into lust overdrive. She then tackles critics in "Piece Of Me", before a thinly veiled attack on ex-husband Kevin Federline with the shaky "Why Should I Be Sad". To avoid too much embarrassment, moans, groans and third-person soundbites are drowned out amidst beats, bleeps and computer game glitches that are genuinely exciting.

There's much to love on this action-packed feast of an album. The electric "Gimme More", the frantically addictive "Freakshow" and the spooky-sassy "Get Back" are clear signs that Spears still has star appeal by the barrow-load. If she can successfully co-ordinate this magic live on-stage, fans will soon be in for a treat.

After a year that she'd surely rather forget, Blackout marks a cool and calculated return for Britney. Rather than put her troubles to one side, she and her army of producers have served them up in a raunchy and, crucially, fun record. Its success should distract her doubters for a short while at least giving Britney - once again, the musician - another five minutes of fame. --Tom Young

In my opinion I absolutely love the new album. I have made my friends listen to some of the songs and we're obsessed! Highly recommended for any Britney fan. I have heard a majority of the tracks that have been leaked online and I am impressed. There are a variety of songs that cover various genres like Dance, Pop, and R&B. The material is definately different and more experimental than her previous songs. Radar and Ooh Ooh Baby are songs that really make an impact and are incredibly catchy. I think Ooh Ooh baby is rather similar to Rachel Stevens L.A EX but far better! GO BRITNEY!

I'm sure people had their doubts when they heard Britney was releasing another album in the midst of her troubles. But fear not as this album is amazing. A good one for all those that love grown up pop-dance-urban-rnb music. Will definetely be buying this when it is released.

i've never bought a britney album until now, always wary of the possible filer in amongst the great singles. i hadn't even heard any of the tracks before ordering this, i'd just read like many others about her supposed lacklustre performance on the mtv awards recently.

i'm amazed she found the time to go into the studio in amongst all her personal problems with k-fed and the custody of her children.

this was a very pleasant surprise. from the off this record is teeming with attitude. the beats are hard and furious at times, but always original. the album concept, loosely concerning the pressures of fame and the public eye with large helpings of sexual suggestions, works well. you might be reminded of christina's 'dirrttyy', but you always come back to britney's damaged innocence and vulnerability which clearly stand out on several of the tracks here.

producer danja provides platinum beats on ' gimme more' which is instantly addictive. some of the tunes have a europop sheen, redolent of her earlier efforts, but this does not damage her credibilty. the nearest the album comes to balladeering is the closing neptunes penned 'why should i feel so sad?', a poignant end to an album where britney is not afraid to vent her spleen a litle, but with that sweet smile still in place - tho you'd never believe it from recent shots in the papers.

huge keyboards are all over the grooves of this record and generate a real sense of occasion on all the tracks.

is this a departure or a step sideways? all i know is this is one growling monster of a pop album and the most sonically innovative modern music to emerge from the us since timberlake's last opus.

this ought to convert many of the doubters and will keep her existing fanbase hungry for more.

Wow, wow, WOW! What an indredible album, not only is every song listenable, but EVERY song is good if not very good. A majority of the songs on Blackout could easily be massive hits to follow on from 'Gimme More' and the new single 'Piece of Me'.

Gimme More - 10/10
Piece of Me - 9/10
Radar - 9/10
Break The Ice - 10/10
Heaven on Earth - 7/10
Get Naked (I Got A Plan) - 9/10
Freakshow - 8/10
Toy Soldier - 10/10
Hot as Ice - 10/10
Ooh Ooh Baby - 7/10
Perfect Lover - 8/10
Why Should I Be Sad? - 7/10

Britney Spears' 5th studio album was released at the most trying time of her career: she had finally cracked under the monotony of her superstar life, and, seeking a "normal" life of marriage, children, and perhaps most importantly, privacy, her search for answers and fulfillment was plastered all over the newspapers and celebrity gossip websites as a "meltdown." Indeed, many things had happened in her life until that point which left Britney heartbroken and confused, and this vulnerability led her to make some poor choices in her quest for fulfillment: Britney's first love, Justin Timberlake, broke up with her for being unfaithful; Her aunt died; her management gave her a far too demanding schedule; and she wanted, more than anything, to live a "normal" life, and often confided in her team that she fantasized of having her own little businesses, such as cute little cake shops. She became bored with the pop star life-style, and dreamed of having a husband and kids. She would marry, but it would end in disaster, and although she would have children, her search for meaning would consume her so much that her ability as a mother would be questioned. Britney had showed signs of depression and anxiety long before the public was made aware of it... exactly how deep her pain runs, we can only speculate.

Britney was considered a pop legend before she became known as the "little girl lost," and this album proves that, even in turmoil, Britney Spears can deliver an iconic era. "Blackout" is strong, fierce, and unflinching. Like its predecessor "In the Zone," "Blackout" offers an urban Britney that oozes sexiness and confidence. I cannot help but wonder what this era would have been like, had Britney not suffered the way she did... had she remained the same.
