    In just 10 tidy songs, it brings us closer than ever before to that distant dreamer.

    It's a concept album about the loneliness of pop life--with a high-profile broken engagement behind her, Brit gets personal and drops her most bummed-out music ever.

    This album continues the striptease of Britney’s career. But behind each discarded veil there is just another veil, an insubstantial gauze masking teams of (presumably unphotogenic) producers, writers, stylists and sloganeers.

    Despite the absence of longtime producer Max Martin and his associates, the album is a surprisingly retrograde affair, with midtempo tracks marred by dated production and vocals that hark back to the days when Brit was selling 10 million.

    At a mere thirty-six minutes, it’s not a stretch to see Britney Jean as a half-baked effort, more of a commitment to be completed and shipped off than the labor of love it was touted as.

    Ms. Spears and Will.i.am have turned to European disc jockeys who have found dance music’s lowest, least funky common denominator: the steady thump of four-on-the-floor. And they’ve settled for too many tepid tracks.

    Nowhere does Britney Jean sound like Britney Spears.

I'm a new Britney Spears fan (I do know many of her hits and non-singles from the start up to 'Femme Fatale') and she's extremely talented and a great singer-songwriter, but almost this whole album is a complete mess. The only songs I felt were really catchy, enjoyable and just plain bad*** were "Work "Perfume" and "Brightest Morning Song". There were 2 or 3 songs that were meh, but overall it just wasn't impressive. Expand

Then leaps ballad "Perfume" (which was only made ​​and released because ballads are successful, but the music or top 70 on Billboard caught), and soon after to part with Will.I.Am feat that is super generic Without any sense this tracklist, as well as the career of this celebrity since 2004.
