  1. This album will sway neither the faithful nor the unbelievers from their positions along the borders of her stalled momentum.
  2. It wants to be danceable, sexy, and a defiant response to the media shitstorm. It's not even that danceable.

It was recorded in & out of the rehab and you can actually hear that Britney wasn't in the best conditions to record, but she still made the best comeback & amazing dance tracks. "Freakshow" features elements of dubstep, too. Full Review »

    Only time would be able to tell how much this would become the decade-to-come's most influential album. Considering what Britney did beforeOnly time would be able to tell how much this would become the decade-to-come's most influential album. Considering what Britney did before and what she has done after this, Blackout certainly puts itself apart from her other productions, for only one reason: its darkness. Different from the easy-going, glowing "Circus", Blackout has deeper tracks with melodies that are catchy and yet continue to have quality. Certainly influenced by a dark/struggle period in her life, Britney was able to create (since she is the executive producer of it) a cohesive and creative album. "Gimme More", "Freakshow", "Piece of Me" and "Heaven on Earth" are amazing. Incredible work. Full Review »
