  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.

    This is one of those albums we are going to listen in the future and say: that was what pop looked like. Britney gives us this "Britney B**ch"This is one of those albums we are going to listen in the future and say: that was what pop looked like. Britney gives us this "Britney B**ch" persona which we dive in during the whole album. There are ups, as Gimme More, Piece of Me and Radar, which actually were singles, and some other hidden songs with a lot of potential like Hot as Ice and Get Back. For me, only Freakshow should have been kept as draft and the most forgettable song. The lyrical content is fantastic and tells a lot about the industry. Those are critics we can still see up to today. Expand
