This review is from: Blackout (Audio CD)
I am a huge Britney fan and have been ever since the "Baby one mor time" days but i have to say this album was disappointing, The first song "Gimme More" is quite good and i do love the beat and the words are somewhat good but its just not the style most suited to her voice.
Too many times artists like to cover up their voice with anamatronics and here this album is filled with them. I was sad to hear no slow ballads on the album as i love her singing style during a slow song that gives her voice a great lift it deserves.
My personal favourite is "Break the ice" it has a great beat and the words are very good but because the whole album sounds like an Ibiza soundtrack it is a small bit off-putting. Two of the tracks do not even sound like her and are more Madonna/Christina like which Britney has always had her own sound seperate from.
I just hope if she makes another album it will be more in style with her "In the zone album" which for me should have been her comeback album. If this is meant to give her career the boost it needs then i think it has failed miserably.
