    Oops!... I Did It Again proves beyond a doubt that Britney Spears is The One.
  2. 47 minutes of homogenous power pop...
  3. Like it or not, the songs penned for Britney by Swedish producer Max Martin, the man behind the even more successful Backstreet Boys, get into your brain like ketamine.
  4. Oops! does succeed in making Spears sound sexier and meatier -- and not that innocent -- as its team of top-shelf producers (particularly Max Martin and Rodney Jerkins) supports her adenoidal vocals and breathy hiccups with bottom-heavy arrangements that provide a bit more thrust and pump to the proceedings.
  5. It has the same combination of sweetly sentimental ballads and endearingly gaudy dance-pop that made One More Time.
  6. Spears' new album does sound exactly like her last one.
  7. Under the cheese surface, Britney's demand for satisfaction is complex, fierce and downright scary, making her a true child of rock & roll tradition.
  8. This time it's the cover of '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' that grabs the headlines. The surprisingly credible version limbers into life with Britney chatting away to her pals on the phone.
  9. There may be no more audacious piece of music this year than Britney Spears' assault on the Rolling Stones' ''(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.''... the remake is at once preposterous and winning.
  10. 80
    Just because the Britney Spears Empire was not built on actual artistic merit doesn't mean the singer can't craft -- or have crafted for her -- a snappy and utterly enjoyable pop record.
  11. As she evolves, Spears is wisely sticking with age-appropriate material that her teen constituency can bond with.
  12. Saturated with choruses too well designed to be written off as anything less than calculatedly brilliant.

A few of the tracks hit the line right between dance and 90s pop perfectly, like Oops!...I Did It Again, Stronger and Crush, but others like Don't Come Knocking On My Door are perfectly horrendous. One could do without this album, but it definitely wouldn't bother one's ears. Full Review »

    Spears' sophomore album, which was critically one of her best, and featured the self-titled single that everyone and their mothers know. TheSpears' sophomore album, which was critically one of her best, and featured the self-titled single that everyone and their mothers know. The album is headlined by such songs as Oops...I did it again, Stronger, and Lucky, with each one reaching the top 15 in the US Billboard 100 charts. Though those songs were popular, and I think they are catchy, the album does have its flaws. (I can't get no) Satisfaction is a word-for-word cover of the original Rolling Stones song, and it just comes off as awful personally. Also, the last track on the album, Dear Diary, is very, very stupid, in my opinion. Buy it to relive some nostalgia, but be aware this is the early 2000's, and bubblegum pop is just as cheesy as you thought it was. Full Review »
