    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.

    Nothing on the record comes across as natural, and it’s not until the album’s iTunes bonus tracks--“Brightest Morning Star” and “Now That I Found You” in particular--that Spears sounds like she’s singing for herself. But, on the album proper, neither the pop figurehead nor the real woman behind it can be found.
  6. 40
    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.

Britney Spears has yet again delivered a solid album with meaningful lyrics in many songs such as Passenger, Alien, Now That I Found You. For the fans, Britney Jean is almost everything you could have wished for. EDM-influenced, ballads, up-tempos tracks all come together to give you a fan-favorite album. Expand

    After working on The X Factor, Britney Spears decides to get back in touch with music, with her next (and told to be her most personal)After working on The X Factor, Britney Spears decides to get back in touch with music, with her next (and told to be her most personal) release "Britney Jean" the 10 track (not including the deluxe edition) collection is full of ballads and electro pop. The end result is a disappointedly safe album but still modestly enjoyable album for Britney Spears fans. The album is very short, clocking in at about 35 minutes, so it luckily doesn't overstay it's welcome, but it does also leave you wanting a little more, and the wanting is some substance. The album feels a little personal at times with the ballads "Perfume" and "Alien" which oddly enough start off at the beginning of this album, it's an interesting experiment from the usual order of Pop songs, but it isn't anything worth remembering about. There are standouts which include "Work B***h", "Tik Tok Boom", and "Body Ache" that do remind you that she is one of the biggest hit makers of this generation, but my biggest problem with Britney Jean is that it doesn't take any risks and it just sounds like the usual Pop music we all hear today. At least her counterpart Miley Cyrus did something different with "Bangerz" even if the album wasn't as successful as it should've been. Still "Britney Jean" is a solid release for Britney Spears fans and it has some great hits, but it's also an album that'll leave you wanting more. Expand

    "Work B**ch" was at first a disaster for me, then I liked it as a "club" song.

Then I heard "Perfume" and thought "maybe she'll be more personal this time". But no, Sia happened to write the whole thing. Anyway, then the album came up with all those poorly produced (will.i.am's fault, maybe?) EDM influenced tracks with a few useful songs like "Don't Cry" and "Hold On Tight", which are the ones I actually really like from the album. Most of the others are just unnecessary and not personal at all, at least not to her. So yes, I wanted her to go back a few years, even if she can only go to 2008, because I think Circus is 1000x better. "Britney Jean" is weak and NOT worthy of a "princess" of pop. Expand
