Product Description

In the six years since her debut CD ...Baby One More Time set Billboard charts a-trembling, Britney Spears has pried open pop music's rusty cage and sprinkled her sex-kittenish fairy dust around like long-overdue disinfectant. She has also arguably done more for the neglected navel than Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé have done for the derrière. But despite her well-earned reputation for boldness (to which releasing a greatest-hits package after just four discs can only add), Britney calls it quits at making claims about her vocal talent. And that works in her favor. Because while My Prerogative is an exciting and even at times superb record, its merits lie almost exclusively in each track's production. From the Abba-esque choruses of her earliest hits ("...Baby One More Time," "Crazy") to the twitching, pulsed-up grooves of 2001's "I'm a Slave 4 U" to the technified bleeps and swizzles of 2003's self-skewering "Outrageous," the pop princess proves she's been largely content to let her in-studio performances take a back seat to the rhythm. With beats as consistently good as the ones she's managed to recruit, though, it's hard to blame her. "Toxic" and "Me Against the Music" mash trance and hip-hop into the mix, and the three previously unreleased joints don't shrink from sliding headfirst into new sound, either. The Bobby Brown cover and title track stomps and bomps to a bared-teeth backdrop, and "Do Somethin'" creates such dancefloor urgency it should come with a siren. "I've Just Begun (Having My Fun)" treads two steps shy of crossing the Britney-bred boundary between sexy and raunchy, but fans will hope it's autobiographical anyway. For detractors the song--and the disc as a whole--should signal a long wait till the party's over. --Tammy La Gorce

Enough is enough, folks. Sure, this girl ain't no Mariah Carey --though in her earliest works (such as "Soda Pop") she sounds quite Christinaish-- but she's got a unique enough sound to be distinguishable on the radio. Can this be said about all teen sensations? Let's talk about rappers: they don't EVEN sing. Can they still be categorized as "singers" for speaking with rhythm? Uh huh, thought so. Britney Spears, like her or not, has become one of pop music's biggest superstars - and most controversial. She's had a slew of No. 1's since her 1998 uber-smash "...Baby One More Time," and has finally garnered that Grammy that's eluded her since her first nominations. In the Zone shows us a more electrocized Spears but the latter ballads, should-be hit "Shadow" and Britney-composed "Everytime," show the public the real girl behind the facade. Greatest Hits can be called such because she has had enough hit-age to put one out ("greatest hits" doesn't mean "every single"). Congrats Britney. You've done a great job here.

well, this is the same track list from México (i'm from that country), i bought this album the day was available (november 8) an well th songs are really good (i'm fan, hehe) anyway i don't know why "Don't let me be the last to know" is not included on the album, is a Hit, at least here in México all Britney songs are #1 this is my review:

1. MY PREROGATIVE (9/10) Amazing Cover! this song is very cool, i don't know why this song didn't have the success that everyone espect! but anyway was #1 in MTV México!

2. TOXIC (12/10) what can't i say about this song, it's the best song of Britney! i love this song, this is really a Brtieny Spears' Worldwide #1!

3. I'M A SLAVE 4 U (12/10) Damn it Britney! amazing Song, i love this song since i heard it on the Radio! for this song a became a Britney Fan!

4. OOPS! I DID TI AGAIN (8/10)well i like this song, i remember that a girl on my elementary school had the single and i heard it i just say "It's cool".....but IT'S GREAT!

5. ME AGAINST THE MUSIC (Feat. Madonna) (7/10) well, this song is SoSo, i don't like it that much as the others, i like the "Richi Rich's Desi Kulcha Mix" included on the album: "In The Zone", I HAVE TO SAY the Britney Version (without Madonna) IS MUCH BETTER!, I Don't Hate Madonna, i like her alot, but i don't like this song.

6. STRONGER (10/10) i think that this is the most longest TOP 10 song of Britney in México, this song was on the Top 10 for like 5 months or maybe more (i'm talking about Radio)

7. EVERYITME (8/10) the background sounds like a music box are very awfull!, but the lyrics and the Britney's voice are the best!

Ever since Britney Spears hit the music scene, the controversy has surrounded the pop princess. Yet it is hardly the music which has been in focus for the last couple of years, instead various tabloid headlines have dominated Britney's public persona. However, Britney Spears has released four studio albums and some excellent pop songs. So in 2004, a greatest hits saw the light of day. One may argue that the release of a greatest hits album after less than 7 years in the music business is a tad hasty and I tend to agree.

The throbbing My Prerogative welcomes the listener to a Bobby Brown cover. The song was released in order to promote the greatest hits album, landing Britney a considerable hit in Europe. The funky, infectious cut is a guilt-pleasure of mine, however it will not be considered a memorable song, in my opinion, as the original is far superior. Next up is the teasingly Toxic. The spy-like theme and the catchy chorus are the highlights of the song. It is probably one of the best pop songs to have been released within the last 6 years. It certainly proved that Britney had not lost the potential to release a hit song. The sexy, addictive I'm A Slave For You from the Britney album was produced by the producer-team The Neptunes. Its funky sound and the mourn-like noises are a perfect match for one another: however, some may argue that the raunchy theme and the mourning sound are a tad overdone.

Released in 2000, the Oops...I Did It Again album witnessed a different Britney from her previous album Baby One More Time. The red-cat suit for the first single Oops...I Did It Again had people interested - positively and negatively. Admittedly, the song is extremely catchy but the horrible lyrics and Britney's irritating voice ruin the song completely.

I know her voice isn't the greatest but the mixing & production of these tunes is nothing short of outstanding. I also know there are detractors who say she just relies on her body to make money. Yet, they fail to mention that she did in just 6 years what no female solo artist since Madonna's heyday in the 1980s has done; that is go from a new artist with a great debut album to cultural superstar.

Her 3 new tunes are all great, My Prerogative is a great opener, I've Just Begun is a nice addition that holds its own against some of the legendary female artists around, & Do Somethin' is a great closer with a beat that is solid.

The real strength here is the material amassed in such a span

of time. Baby One More Time, Oops! I Did It Again, Stronger, Lucky & Everytime are all very solid tunes that're what carries the album & shows off her musical skills. The tracks aren't in chronological order, but that's okay because there's so many good tunes here that it doesn't matter that much to me. The musical quality of these tunes is nothing short of great on each one & the production & mixing are really solid & keep the album sounding so good.

I'd like to have seen Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know & From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart make the cut as well, but this is still a very solid & tight greatest hits package that I've not seen a female solo artist pull off since Maddona's wonderful The Immaculate Collection was done. I don't know about the quality of the 6 bonus tracks as I've only got the standard 17-track disc.

one thing that bugs me is that don't let me be the last to know wasnt here
Well, was it one of her greatest hits? I don't think DLMBTLTK (Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know) was as popular as some of her other songs on this album. But I could be wrong.
