  • Summary: Oops, she did it a third time. The Pepsi spokesperson's third LP features 12 new tracks produced by the likes of Rodney Jerkins, Max Martin and the Neptunes, including a cover of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock N Roll."

    It's enough of a reinvention to suggest that Britney will know what to do when the teen-pop phenomenon of 1999-2001 passes for good.
  2. A nicely varied, wholly satisfying collection.
  3. Britney and 'Britney' still works best when making a good pop cheese and dance sandwich.
  4. Many of the tunes are good for a romp around the kitchen (or the dance floor, if you prefer) but the girl is right when she says she is yet to come into her own both as a woman and a recording artist.
  5. While she's been guilty of gluing sure-fire singles together with rotten fillers on her previous two albums, Britney uses this opportunity to take the odd risk and adds a welcome edge to her sound.
  6. Other than the absence of ellipses in the title, ''Britney'' finds pop's poster girl for virginal vamping in an awkward adolescence, wavering between playing it safe and busting a few tentative new moves.

    First of all, Britney Spears wrote 5 songs on this album, that totally rock, and second of all she still got your money for the purchase of her CD. I think girls that think Britney is a slut are very insecure because they don't look like her or they are jealous. This album is amazing. Keep up the good work Brit!!!!! Expand

    In my opinion, this is Britney's best album. It stands out from her three others (four, counting My Prerogative) because of its dancey sound. The lyrics are more mature than Oops!... and ...Baby One More Time, the sound is a whole new dimension, and her voice is awesome. You can dance to this album, do homework while listening to this album, sing tracks from this album, or just listen to it.. It's her best work by far. She should have stayed with this sound. Expand

    I think that she has changed too much but I like the change in her music but not her looks

    Okay, so the biggest guilty shame of all time strikes again. Britney is the third album from the pop princess, and the most scattered of her efforts. As if not knowing which direction she should go after two albums of bee-boppy teen pop, Spears tries on every outfit: the sex goddess in Expand

    Can I Say To American? Skip Every Track But I'm A Slave 4 U, Overprotected, And I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman...
    I Love Rock N Roll Is Ok...
    But Its Meh... My Least Favorite Album Of Brit's! If All The Songs Were Like A I'm A Slave 4 U It Would Be Great!
    Sorry! LOW SCORE!

    She looks like a bigger slut then ever, she needs to write her own music and learn to be original.
