5.0 out of 5 stars It took a while, but she is back!!!!!!!! 13 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
It didn't happen overnight, but Britney is back to the one woman pop machine she used to be. While 'Blackout' was a great album it got lost along the way during all the drama, but it's here, album number 6, and what an album it has turned out to be. The albums sound seems to be an equal mix of Blackout and the Britney of years ago. It's not quite as electronic as Blackout and brings back more of Britney's personality in to the album. This is the first album since 2001's 'Britney' that she has collaborated with Max Martin, also Danja is back producing along with Bloodshy & Avant. New producers (The Outsyders & The Underdogs)have been brought in too to make sure the album isn't too predictable. The only slight let down is (surprisingly) the Bloodshy & Avant production. 'Unusual You' is just not up to their previous work together, its not bad just a bit bland next to the other tracks.
This album is every bit as solid as Blackout was, whilst not every song is amazing, none are at all bad. Lead single 'Womanizer' is certainatly a great song, catchy, fast and not too deep, but that's just for starters. It is definately not the best song on the album. Next single lined up is Dr Luke produced 'Circus' which is 100 times better again than Womanizer. It moves at a slower pace but the beat is heavier & the songs feel overall is darker. Pure brilliance!! Other great tracks include 'If You Seek Amy' which is a really catchy song (helped along by the play on words (",)). One thing that Blackout was missing was a genuinely emotional ballad and Circus serves up a great one 'Out From Under' which discusses finding your feet after the breakdown of a relationship. A really genuine song from Britney. 'Lace & Leather' and Danja produced 'Kill The Lights' are yet more great tracks from the set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ooops she did it again! 6 Feb 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I'm 12 and I bought this album after watching Britney:for the record and loving both circus and womanizer.I loved it and ahven't been able to stop playing it, I'm not a Britney fan and only own britney spears: greatest hits but I like what she does and felt sorry for her when she went through her rough patch. She's definitely made a big comeback and if what the critics say about her performance on x faxtor then ignore them. This album shows true style and is just a fabbie play

5.0 out of 5 stars Circus of Fun 2 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
Once again Britney creates a musical masterpiece that surpasses the quality of her cd "Blackout". "Blackout" was a good album but "Circus" from my modest opinion is an even better album. I would even go as far to say that because of the greatness in the "Circus" album she will go on to sell many tickets for her upcoming tour which will make it one of the most successful musical tours of 2009. The following are a rundown of my opinion on the songs that led me to feel this way.

Womanizer 10 out of 10 A tongue in cheek of song regarding how even though the man she is singing about is charming that there is no way she is going to fall under his charm. A couple of the places that this exciting video to this song can be viewed through yahoo music and youtube

Circus 10 out of 10 This song is even better than Womanizer. This song she sings very confidently about the exciting show she puts on for others that is entertaining. Plus she emphasizes in this song that when it comes to men she likes the ringleader who calls the shots and she likes a firecracker where she can make it hot. Either way this song is a very fun song that also has an exciting video that can be posted on youtube and yahoo music.

Out From Under 9 out of 10 A very touching song and a unique ballad on how she can't look back in her love life on what could have been. I love how she beautifully sings that she will just figure it out when she's out from under.

Kill The Lights 10 out of 10 A song that is reminiscent of "Piece of Me" but expresses how she is more ready to face the paparazzi on her own terms.

4.0 out of 5 stars good album 20 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a good album. Took me a couple of listens to like most of the tracks. However, alot of the songs do sound the same and although its more pop orientated than her last album blackout, the songs still have a certain amount of charm. I love the first single, womanizer & circus is a good follow-up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Britney's Circus 1 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've kind of grown to like Britney - I like my superstars flawed. I've been listening to the over the last couple of weeks and have come to really like it. Apart from one awful number(mmm papi), all the rest are great pop tunes. Kill the Lights and, especially, Blur are the standout tracks. Its not as grown up as Blackout was in terms of lyrics, but Brit doesn't have much to do with that side of things anyhow. She has used the same producers as on the previous CD and they have produced results - weird sounding, quite progressive. All in all one of the best pop CDs of the year and sure to spawn a bunch of hit singles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Circus! 18 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
It has been a turbulent time for miss Spears, but it's time to take note, this time Britney is most definitely back, and this time she's not holding back.
Following on from her previous attempt at a comeback, Blackout, Britney has put a little more effort in. this time She sounds much more engaged and it's obvious she has had much more input on the work she has produced.
She often falls into the trap of producing an album which contains the same song 12 times over, the variation on this record compared to the 11 tracks of constant electro pop on Blackout is astonishing. She takes many more chances and it more than pays off. We have slow and fast tracks; happy and sad, bouncy and sultry... it's all good!
The first track from Circus is Womanizer. The notorious lead single, and the one, which has propelled her back into the top 5 the world over. This song may lack substance but it makes up for it with its hook, which lodges itself firmly in the listener's brain and refuses to let go. You'll be singing this one to yourself for months.
Second comes Circus, the title track is the second single due out some time in December. Personally I feel that this track surpasses Womanizer, it's just a better song. It's understandable she would wait to release this song to coincide with the release of the album, if this song doesn't help it fly off the shelves then god help us all. The song itself is arrogant, cocky and very self obsessed, it's perfect Britney. It's almost like her "I'm back" song. The chorus of the song is simply wonderful, it hits hard and fast, like an assault on your ears... bound to be a favourite and one of her best in a long long time!
Track 3 is the beautiful Out From Under.
