Greatest Hits: My Prerogative [Digipak with Bonus Remix CD] Limited Edition
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
No longer a baby, Britney Spears has become a pop princess to Madonna's (with whom she sings here) queen. Featuring all her biggest songs, Greatest Hits collects 17 tracks spanning her remarkable career so far. The tracks include her massive pop debut "Baby One More Time", the saucy "Oops!...I Did It Again", the funky Neptunes-produced "Slave 4 U", and the kickin' "Toxic".

HOWEVER, this really is an outstanding greatest hits package, jam packed with dance floor fillers (such as 'Toxic', 'Stronger' and 'Crazy'), perfect pop ('Oops! I Did It Again', 'Born To Make You Happy' and the iconic 'Baby One More Time'), at times sexy (as in the Prince-ish 'I'm A Slave 4 U' and 'Boys') and gorgeous ballads ('Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know', 'Sometimes' and 'Everytime'). This cd also includes a duet with Madonna, the dance floor hit 'Me Against The Music' - Madonna's only single duet in her 21 year career, quite a coup for Britney. With a couple of new hits to, the best of which is an electro-pop cover of Bobby Browns early 90's hit 'My Prerogative'. The only weak moments for me are 'I Love Rock 'N' Roll', which to be honest isn't bad, just not worthy of inclusion, and the pleasant 'I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman' (which was co-written with Dido, though she remains un-credited). As for 'Lucky' this really is one of the most saccharine sweet pieces of pop I've ever heard, however, I can't help enjoying it.
This really is an excellent hits package, and one that must make fans of hers long to see what she will do next.
Then, without any real warning, things started to turn around greatly. Her third self titled offering was fantastically done, very little filler, and a whole lot of killer. Lead single "I'm A Slave 4 U" was the standout, definitely, but it was unwise to overlook "Overprotected", "Boys" or even her cover of "I Love Rock & Roll". Even the initially nauseating CrossRoads ballad "I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman" was a grower. Spears' credibility continued with her fourth album, In The Zone, which featured contributions from Madonna, the Ying Yang Twins, Moby and R. Kelly, among others.
It is telling that the real standout track on Greatest Hits: My Prerogative is from In The Zone. "Toxic", with it's orchestral strings and mid-tempo dance beat, is a playful joy of a track, and in my opinion, Spears' best yet. GH:MP really is a collection of practically perfect pop music. If duff tracks such as "Sometimes", "Lucky" and "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know" had been cut, then the collection would be damn near pop's classic hits collection (Madonna's Immaculate Collection) in quality.
All the Britney hits we know and love are here - from the debut "...Baby" to the gorgeous "Everytime", with three 'new' tracks included for good measure. The first is a reworking of Bobby Brown's 1980s classic "My Prerogative".Read more ›
The remixes are wicked but its the first cd of the 2 that counts the most, also the packaging is awesome btw! Wicked book style case and its really shiny!
All the songs are good in their own special way. The opening cover of Bobby Brown's 'My Prerogative' is class. A great cover. And then it gets even better with Toxic! What an amazing song! How could anyone not like this song!? They would have to be insane. Then 'Slave 4 U'. This in my opinion one of her best songs, and should have been a number 1 here in the UK.
Every song is a highlight of the CD, perhaps the weekest song is 'Sometimes'. Not one of my favs, but some others may enjoy it. The New songs, 'I've just begun' and 'Do Somethin' are good. The first one is better but their both enjoyable. I only hope that she releases 'Breathe On Me' from her 'In the Zone' album as it is a fantastic song!
BUY THIS! Looks great, sounds great, is great!
