Let's get one thing straight: I've been a devoted fan of Britney's since "Oops!...I Did It Again" dominated the airwaves.

So it kills me to say that I can't stand any of the songs on "Femme Fatale." I mean, where's the heart? Where's the soul? Where's the magic? Britney's music just hasn't been the same since she shaved her head, as sad as it sounds. The whole situation depresses me. I really can't believe people are saying this album is her best yet. Really, people? You think this overly electronic-sounding s*** is better than "Oops," "Lucky," "Sometimes," "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know," "I'm a Slave 4 U," "Toxic," "Stronger," "Anticipating," "Lonely," "That's Where You Take Me," "Boys," "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman," "...Baby One More Time," "(You Drive Me) Crazy," or even "Dear Diary"?! If so, think again.

Oh, and the kicker: Britney can't dance anymore.

This album to me is lackluster.. there's only 2 or 3 songs I really like. Britney never could sing, and now she can barely dance. Her lyrics are childish and stupid, and her fans are delusional. Isn't she done yet?

as in the title im not a fan of the techno genre which includes dub step and electric pop ITS ALL NOISE TO ME!

what happen to pop music its turning into techno or as you may say electric pop
the people giving this good reviews are just techno weirdos nothing more

trust me Britney will go back to her old traditional pop sound because this electric stuff
gets old after awhile, circus is her best album with Femme Fatale & Britney jean her worst
her best new songs are

Femme Fatale album:

Criminal...........her traditional pop sound

Don't Keep Me Waiting............her blackout heavy sound

Britney Jean album:

Alien.

Dont Cry.

Brightest Morning Star

Hold on Tite

Perfume.............The Dreaming Mix has a better sound then the original.

otherwise both albums suck.
Dont get me wrong i love pop music someone like
Michael Jackson Justin Timberlake & maroon 5
im just not into electric music its robot noise to me
ill stick with blackout & circus thanks

Words cannot describe how breathtaking this CD is. It is easy to understand why this hot new collection has already sold millions of copies the world over. The fabulous Britney Spears {along with her fellow top 40 and rap contemporaries} have blessed our generation with three vital things sorely missing from all music that came before her....ORIGINALITY, ARTISTRY, and most of all, TALENT!

Indeed, few musicians in recent decades can compare with the overwhelming musical ability that Spears injects into every fiber of every song on this incredible album! When it comes to sheer vocal talent, Brit has no equal. When she dips into her lower registers, there's a haunting and soulful feel that would make Karen Carpenter proud. And her upper registers RIPS with operatic ruptures that would intimidate inferior singers like Celine Dion into an early retirement!

However, outstanding vocals can only get you so far, and Spears has always had much more to offer than that. Her groundbreaking guitar solos are so jaw-droppingly inventive that Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, or Chet Atkins sound like total idiots in comparison. Her drumming is rock steady, her complex bass lines flow like water, and her piano playing is also of the calibre that classically trained musicians like Ronnie Milsap or Billy Joel could never compete with. While most stars can only play one or two instruments, Spears is responsible for every note played on this amazing collection of songs!

Then, of course, there is songwriting ability, which is something that Britney has taken to a level beyond anything Beethoven or Mozart ever dreamed of! Britney's lush compositions are so incredibly sophisticated in both lyrics and melody that they more than deserve their place at the top of the charts. Every song here stands on it's own as a timeless masterpiece of American music, and each one makes a truly unique musical statement that is only enhanced by the radiant musical prowess that IS Britney Spears! For both musicians and songwriters the world over, her unmistakable talent is undeniably inspiring and refreshing...

Thank God that after sixty plus years of horrible music with no redeeming qualities whatsoever, we have been blessed with the true artistry that Miss Spears has given to our culture. The 20th century was a terribly bleak time for American music in terms of sheer talent and originality, but here in the 21st century Brit has elevated an art form to standards we may never be priviledged to witness again.

And how do I know that everything I've said here is true??? Because unlike many people, I turn to the right sources to help me decide what music I should be listening to. I allow MTV, Simon Cowell, and my local DJ to do my thinking for me because these people are the experts who understand what REAL TALENT and GREAT MUSIC is all about!!!

Enough said. If you don't own this CD, you were born without a brain.....

Britney may have been a great performer at one point in time, but it seems like she has given up.

Her songs are generic pop songs that can be sung by anyone with acess to auto tune.
I would rather have Ke$ha on these tracks because at least Ke$ha writes her own music.

Britney is not musically inclined whatsoever. Her voice sounds all nasal and like a robot.

There are better singers out there. Britney needs to stop recording music.

I have been able to listen to several of Britney's tracks (not songs) on YouTube from pretty much all of her albums, after many of the mindless drones who make up most of her fanbase keep telling me how "great" she is. After yet another one of them told me I should check out Femme Fatale, I went right ahead with it. After all, I can't really criticize anything until I've heard it, right? So now, I can honestly say that this one, just like all the others, is nothing but garbage. Auto-tuned filth, lame and overly-simple generic lyrics, over-processed computerized noise... no substance whatsoever, just total garbage!

Come on, people, wake up and smell the coffee! Britney is a hack, and nothing but hype. She is just in it for the money, and not the art. And if you ask me, she is (thankfully) just about over the hill by now. As evidence of this, Femme Fatale may have debuted at #1, but despite that, it spawned virtually ZERO grammy nominations! Enough said.

With all that said, please allow me to return to Within Temptation, Halestorm, Gamma Ray and many dozens more REAL bands/artists who actually make music for the art and not solely for the money.

NOTE: The actual date of this post is April 13, 2012. I wrote my original review on March 30, 2011, but deleted it.

If I could give this a 0 rating I would. I read the reviews and couldn't wait to buy it and listen to it. I listened to every second of the entire cd. Seemed like five hours. I literally was wondering if it would ever be over. This cd is soooo overprocessed that you can't even tell that it's Britany Spears singing. There is not one single song that I have any desire to hear again.

Each song is so over-computerized and her voice is so lost in the mix that the totally stupid lyrics shine through here. A total piece of pop-dance crap from start to finish....if you're a fan of the vocorder and stupid lyrics...then you will be wet from listening to this....but for the rest of the world that has an ear for music - this is not the cd for you!

Sad that it will sell like hotcakes and the remixes will too...but her one trick pony has died and this is the maggots that we're left listening too!

Just retire now and raise your kids...stop trying to be 21 and hot....you're time has come and is now gone....

Skank music for the club....."hot like vegetables in a pot" - really....these are the lyrics she "wrote"? Heaven help us all if this is what some people call lyrics these days.....SAD SAD SAD....

I tried, I tried, I tried. I tried to listen to this album, not once but twice. I tried to hear the Britney that we fell in love with; the Britney that came out when I was 15 and turning up the radio every time her song came on. I tried to appreciate (tolerate might be a better word) some of the songs. I tried.

But every time I tried to like I fell... (So dorky, I know.) Look, I am not going to sit here and bash Britney. She's got enough critics to do that for me. I am also not an obsessive Britney fan. I just like good music to listen to while I am working out, or sitting at work bored and need a wake up. But I also like my music to have depth, to have soul, to mean something. This album sounds like a computer created disaster that producers threw together with simple lyrics that rhyme. Where the heck is her voice? She certainly doesn't have Whitney Houston vocals, but at least in her earlier work we actually heard her singing.

Frankly, if I wanted another techno CD I would've taken my $15.00 elsewhere.

She's been trying to have a major comeback for the last few years, and it's just not happening. Every album that comes out they say "this is the one that will put her on track," but it does nothing for me.

She's had her run, she's been in the spotlight, but now is the time she should just step down.

I really enjoyed this tune at the tale end of summer 2011. It's on the "Femme Fatale" album, along with "Til the World Ends" which I also enjoy off this album. I'm sure by "Womanizer" her critics began taking her seriously as an artist. "I Wanna Go" is a fast paced tune. There's noticeable whistling in it. However, the other instrumentals in this song are more noticeable than the whistling. My fav part obviously is "lably, lably,....." This part reminds you of Haviland Morris, who played the 'stuck-up' captain of the cheerleading team from "Sixteen Candles" you know the one with...Molly Ringwald. A lot of people like "Legally Blonde," too!
