"Britney" Is Brit's BEST Yet!, 25 Oct 2001
The highly antcipated 3rd album "Britney" from the infamous Britney Spears, is definitley this talented singers best as of yet! The album is a more mature, harder pop, with twists of R&B, Rock, and Funk/Dance. The first single and track, "I'm A Slave 4 U", produced by the funkalicious Neptunes, mixes R&B beats with smoothe vocals to make it an awesome song! Next theres "Overprotected", which is definitley one of the best on the album. Its a hard pop beat produced by Max Martin (did most of Baby... and Oops... albums) and written by Britney herself, as well as "Cinderella". Next theres the sole ballad on the album, "I'm Not A Girl...", penned by Dido, which is by far her best yet. Then theres R&B influenced songs such as "Boys", produced by the Neptunes as well, "Lonely", produced by Rodney Jerkins as well as "Let Me Be", which all sound great as well. Then theres "Thats Where You Take Me", and "Bombastic Love" which are Pop/Dance influenced as well, with great lyrics and beats! Brit did an awesome cover of the Joan Jett classic "I Love Rock N Roll", another produced by Rodney Jerkins, which is also more R&B, which actually lives up to the original. Finally theres "What It's Like To Be Me", which was produced by Britney's boyfriend Justin Timberlake from *N'SYNC, and Wade Robson, their choreographer. The song is like a rock opera, with Justins vocals in the background. The 2 bonus songs, including "Before The Goodbye", produced by BT(Pop), are great as well. All in all, this is an all around GREAT album, and a defenite MUST-BUY! Britney shows off her new styles and sounds in this provocaticve new album, which is the best she has ever done!
