Album Review: Britney Spears - Femme Fatale (Jive)

Britney Spears - Femme Fatale (Jive)

With a not-exactly-rapturously received lead single that dipped its toe warily into dubstep (the cunningly titled ‘Hold It Against Me’ ), Britney’s new album was always going to be a wild card. And luckily, it is, but in the good way....

“There are two types of people in the world”, Ms Spears states two songs in, on the title track of her sixth album. These, in case you were wondering, are “the ones who entertain, and the ones who observe”. On ‘Kill The Lights’ a...

What’s pop’s most plastic princess to do when her life has turned into absolute gold for the tabloid masses? Turn into a robot! From ‘Gimme More’’s heavily treated vocals that sound like a sex addict’s cry for help to the electro throb...
