  1. Britney has delivered the best album of her career, raising the bar for modern pop music with an incendiary mix of Timbaland's 'Shock Value' and her own back catalogue.
  2. Blackout is state-of-the-art dance-pop, a testament to skills of the producers and perhaps even Britney being somehow cognizant enough to realize she should hire the best, even if she's not at her best.
  3. Blackout is business as usual. Courting publicity more shamelessly than that infamous kiss with Madonna, Britney writhes, moans and generally gives good pillow talk for the duration of an album where crunk, glitches, squeaks and clubbed-up beats dominate.
  4. The biggest failure of these songs, and the most confusing thing about this album, are the melodies.
  5. The electronic beats and bass lines are as thick as Ms. Spears’s voice is thin, and as the album title suggests, the general mood is bracingly unapologetic.
  6. It wants to be danceable, sexy, and a defiant response to the media shitstorm. It's not even that danceable.

    First, I found it irritating, forgettable, and boring. Different from her previous work. As I listen to it again, I realized that it isFirst, I found it irritating, forgettable, and boring. Different from her previous work. As I listen to it again, I realized that it is entertaining and danceable. Futuristic at its best and shows that Britney will always hire the best. So, the album is Britney's best for me. Expand

    Um dos melhores álbuns da Britney e falo isso com tranquilidade, mostrando o porque de ela ser considerada a princesa do pop.
