Heres the track list:

1. Gimme More
2. Piece of Me
3. Radar
4. Womanizer
5. Circus
6. If You Seek Amy
7. 3
8. Till the World Ends
9. I Wanna Go

the first 9 tracks are the exact same remixes from the US Version.

10. Criminal (varsity team remix)
NOT THE RADIO EDIT... this version is pretty kick ass, no lie

11. Break the Ice (tonal remix)
I prefer the jason nevins remix, but his one is still top notch

12. Hold it Against Me (funk generation club remix)
SWEEEEEEEET MIX!!!!

13. My Prerogative (x-press 2 radio edit)
This is ok, I've heard it elsewhere before, maybe on her limited edition of my prerogative. nonetheless, it's an excellent beat.

14. Criminal (Tom Piper and Riddler Club mix)
Ehh, I prefer the first edition of Criminal on this collection.

All in all, even though the price is ridiculously more than the US version, this is a GREAT! collaboration. If your strapped for cash, you may want to wait for it to drop or search elsewhere of course... either way you'll want to add this to your collection!

Hardcore Britney fans will no doubt be disappointed to see that, with the exception of the new Criminal remix, all the other remixes on this CD have been released somewhere previously. That doesn't necessarily make it a bad collection, however. Most fans aren't the type to buy every single and download every remix, so for the casual dance music lover, this is a great way to listen to a "greatest hits" of Brit's ferocious club hits in the past few years.

Here's my breakdown of the hits and misses:

THE HOT AND STEAMY
- Piece of Me (Tiesto Club Mix)
- Till the World Ends (Alex Suarez Club Remix)
- Gimme More (Kaskade Club Mix)
- 3 (Manhattan Clique Club Remix)

THE GOOD
- I Wanna Go (Gareth Emery Remix) [I would have preferred the Wallpaper mix]
- Criminal (Radio Mix) [though it doesn't change the original much, this new version really transforms the song for me. I Love it!]
- If U Seek Amy (U-Tern Remix)
- Womanizer (Benny Benassi Extended Mix)

THE EH
- Circus (Linus Loves Remix) [way better remixes to choose from]
- Radar (Tonal Club Mix) [there weren't a lot of great remixes for this song, but this is the worst IMO]

THE MISSED OPPORTUNITY
- while I appreciate them releasing full length club mixes and not just radio mixes, 10 tracks is an incredibly small number considering none of these remixes are new. Where's "Break the Ice" or "Hold it Against Me"? Could they not have thrown in another Criminal mix? A new song, like And Then We Kiss from the first remix cd? I would also have LOVED to see remixes of non-singles, like "Kill the Lights" or "Freakshow."

OVERALL: For a cheap price, this is a good collection of hot dance music that will inspire you to shed the pounds on the treadmill. As a Britney fan, however, I have to say I'm a little disappointed in the lack of new content.

I'll say straight away that I'm not really a Britney Spears fan. At least, not anymore. She kind of lost me around the Circus album when it started to become evident she wasn't really interested in maturing as an artist or evolving beyond the "lets dance and party and pick up boys in the clubs even though I'm almost 30" mindset, which of course EVERYONE is doing these days anyway, which is very unfortunate. Being a fan of dance music in general I'll admit I love my share of mindless pop, but over the last few years it seems even Ms. Spears has been off her game. However, I'm also a remix whore (lol) so when I heard she was releasing a second "In the Mix" volume my curiosity got the best of me. As a collector in an age when the CD single is virtually defunct, releases like this can come as a real treat sometimes.

So, putting my prior personal disappointments aside and looking at things objectively, is this a decent remix album? Yes, it is actually. Containing most of her major single releases since the 2007 Blackout era - though shockingly no version of her recent mega hit "Hold it Against Me" - I'd have to make the case that these remixes actually have improved upon most of the original songs. A lot of people say they don't care for remixes because of their repetitive nature and lack of structure, but considering her last two albums were basically nothing but looped vocals and random button mashing to begin with, the majority of these mixes almost have the opposite effect and strive to turn them into the sing-along pop ditties they were meant to be. Weird but true.

I am not a Britney groupie but I have to admit she has had a few hits that sounded awesome as club remixes and that is why I bought this project. The remixes are nice, make you rock and groove in your car....not bad Britney; NOT BAD AT ALL!!

B IN THE MIX VOLUME 2 was a smart decision by the Britney Spears team at the time -- Britney just released three chart-topping singles and a #1 worldwide CD. Femme Fatale was a successful era -- and thought it deserved the B IN THE MIX treatment. Last B In the Mix album, Volume 1, was after both In the Zone and Greatest Hits: My Prerogative, which were both successful CDs. Releasing a new one was bound to happen and was appropriate for its time. The tracks are amazing, however some are "meh". The remixes from the Blackout and Circus eras happen to be the best. It's best to listen to the CD in order, even though the tracks are listed by release order (besides track one).

**TRACK BY TRACK REVIEW**
1. CRIMINAL (RADIO MIX): (2.5/5) "Criminal" is not a bad Britney Spears track. In fact, I think it's a very good track by Britney Spears and a key cut from Femme Fatale. However, the 50% rating is due to the fact that THIS IS NOT A REMIX. The radio mix and album version of "Criminal" are indistinguishable, granted the slight difference. However, this is not true of the rest of the album, which contain great remixes. (I do understand Britney Spears' team reasoning when including this track on the CD -- "Criminal" was released fairly close to the release of B In the Mix, Volume 2 and would sell more copies of "Criminal" as a result.
2. GIMME MORE (KASKADE CLUB MIX): (5/5) This remix should have been track one on the CD and is a fantastic way to start off the remixes. Although the Kaskade Remix is not my favorite remix of "Gimme More", it fits perfectly on this CD and I would not change it at all. Give it a listen!
