The Bad: With the retail price tag of almost $100, and even with the Amazon.com discount, I expected a lot more from the deluxe edition of the 'singles' collection. After all, just a few weeks ago Jive released a single disc edition of the this same 'singles collection' Britney Spears: The Singles Collection. So, what makes this different from the standard edition? A box, an individual sleeve containing the original cover art of each single. A DVD containing 26 Britney Spears music videos. For $100 and a title like 'the singles collection' and a picture showing covers of her singles, I (as a fan and consumer) expected the full, un-abridged SINGLE, meaning the original mix of each song (which is included) and the numerous remixes or B-sides that were originally released with each single. Instead, the original mix of each song is included (just as with the standard edition) and just one B-side or one remix from the original single.Read more ›
I remember thinking how cool it was going to be to have this item. The first time it came out, it was only a little over seventy dollars on Amazon, but then it sky rocketed to 89.99, almost twenty more dollars than it used to be! But being a huge Britney fan, I knew I was going to buy it anyway. But now that i have it, it doesn't seem worth the money I spent. This box was actually very cheaply made.
About five years ago, Britney released her first singles album, Greatest Hits: My Prerogative. What surprised most fans was that she had only released four studio albums, and now she was releasing Greatest Hits. The thing about Greatest Hits is that it was a lot less expensive, priced at around twenty dollars. And that actually had some new songs/remixes on it. Overprotected (The Darkchild Remix), Boys (The Co-ed Remix), My Prerogative, Do Somethin', and I've Just Begun (Having My Fun) had never been officially released on an album, until Greatest Hits came out. And if you bought the Limited Edition, you got a second disc with 5-7 remixes on it, depending where you bought it from. Most of the remixes on there had never been officially released either. But on The Singles Collection, you only get one new song (about having a threesome!) And if you buy the right import CD's, you probably have all of the b-sides and remixes in this collection (I did). And another thing that made me mad was that the remixes were mostly radio edits, and not in there full form.
Now onto the box itself. You get all of Britney's 29 singles, and each disc has a b-side or remix. Each single comes with its own cardboard sleeve, with its original art work. But the CD's are just plain black and say "The Singles Collection". Why didn't they keep the original CD design too?Read more ›

All remaining remixes are short remixes to begin with or EDITS of longer club mixes. A CD has 80 minutes of free space, and on each of these discs we're not getting more than 10 minutes of music in most cases. This entire boxed set worth of music could have probably fit on 3 or 4 CDs and been sold for about 25 dollars less!
And consider this. As of this writing, there has been no CD single release for 3, so if you want the club mix of this song on CD, you have to buy this entire boxed set. Other than that, the ONLY track in this boxed set that I didn't have on CD was the remix of Radar! Where are the big club remixes that have never been on CD before of songs like My Prerogative? Outrageous? Toxic? You Drive Me Crazy? Lucky? Breath On Me? Me Against the Music? I'm a Slave 4U?Read more ›
