CD Review

I just finished listening to the new Britney Spears album, called Britney. You're probably thinking to yourself "but Phronk, that album isn't in stores for another week, how in God's name could you possibly have heard it?!?!" Well, you see, I have many secret industry contacts that can get me stuff before it comes out in stores. Lucky me.

So what do I think of it? At this moment, I'm slightly disappointed. After hearing "I'm a Slave 4 U", I was expecting something a little different than her previous albums. Something more along the lines of N Sync's newest...still crappy pop music, but a little rough around the edges, and maybe even showing a little talent. However, most of Britney is the same old crappy talentless pop music. You can hear a bit of N Sync's influence in some songs though. By the way, I don't believe that she's a virgin for a second. Justin and her probably boink like rabid monkeys every night then turn on the TV and laugh at the stupid-ass media speculating about how they could possibly "physically express their love for each other" without bumping uglies.

Anyway...don't get me wrong, I like the CD. It's crappy pop, but GOOD crappy pop. "Cinderella", which seems like the "Lucky" of this CD, is a nice little tune. Several other songs that I don't remember the names of were pretty good too. But in between the promising songs are mediocre ones that could just have easily been on a Backstreet Boys album, or any other pop artist.

Overall, I like it, but it could have been better. Three thumbs up (out of four and half).
