The short version of this review? Femme Fatale (especially the Deluxe Edition) is simply Britney Spears' best album to date. It's everything a Britney fan could ask for. And for those who aren't fans, they will most likely become fans if they like catchy electro dance music.

Now for the (very) long version. Femme Fatale is an electro-pop masterpiece that melds pop, techno, and even dubstep together. Every song has fantastic production, creative lyrics, and a star quality that only Britney can pull off. This album is one you will want to listen to whenever and wherever, in the car, at the club, at home, at parties. Britney really put her heart and soul into this album, and it shows through her vocal performance throughout the album as well. Yes, there is a fair amount of production and editing that goes on, but as far as the energy in her vocals (which is something autotune cannot induce),she really has put her best foot forward to make tantalizing dance music.

Is Femme Fatale better than Blackout? That is up for you to judge. Femme Fatale is definitely sex-driven, just like Blackout. Every song on this album is different and unique sounding, but there are definitely a lot of similarities to Blackout. Femme Fatale is more like the Blackout 2.0, it's definitely far from the sound of Circus.

"Till The World Ends" and "Hold It Against Me" are the singles so far for this album. "Hold It Against Me" is a fantastic song that has a thrusting beat, and the double-entendre is very clever. The album begins with the high-energy "Till The World Ends", written by Ke$ha. It's an amazing dance anthem complete with chants of "woah oh oh oh ohhh" and the vocals are fierce and catchy. These two songs are already an amazing start to the album.

Britney Spears' first album into the decade of 2010 showcased a revamped, updated electro-pop sound that catapulted her back into the spotlight; 3 top 5 singles came as a result from it including the #1 smash hit 'Hold It Against Me' and the #3 single 'Till The World Ends', which was accompanied by a massively popular music video. However its commercial success was no surprise even before its release in 2011, given the fact that the album was produced by a hoard of untouchable hit-makers, most notoriously Max Martin, Dr. Luke & Shellback.

The reality of the album's musical content is however less prestigious; while saturating the music with dubstep breaks, techno synths, pervasive melodine, eq filters and massive compression makes for an undeniably trendy output, one can't help but wonder how is it that Britney Spears' style and persona fit into this at all. The lyrical content smooths the transition, since Britney has always been undeniably sexual, but her passionless singing is hardly convincing at all, for which she comes off as rather washed up instead of punchy and seductive; not to mention the fact that any life out of her vocals is sucked out by the melodine.

The 4 or 5 songs that were composed and produced by the aforementioned producers are undoubtedly the most enjoyable ones, where the melodies of a nice Max Martin composition are decent regardless of Spears' commitment to them. The one exception I could point out would be the book-ending 'Criminal', which its thematic about a girl blindly in love with an outlaw, which unknowingly sucks her into the negativity of his lifestyle, is a theme in which there is a tangible connection to Britney's own previous love life, where the faint tone of her delivery is convincing to the helpless, gritty exposition of the subject matter. Other than that, the album is as hype and glossy as her hitmaker producers like it to be, where her own charisma is absent, and her as an artist comes second.

I'm a Britney fan, and I was surprised by how much I liked this album. I have virtually nothing negative to say about it. First off, it has far more tracks than any other albums of hers (16). There is only one track I don't care for ("Criminal"), but the awesomeness other 15 tracks easily makes up for its shortcomings. Sandwiched in the middle of the three songs everyone's heard ("Till The World Ends," "Hold It Against Me" and "I Wanna Go") is the gem "Inside Out," which is the best breakup-sex song ever made ("Sittin' in the mirror gettin' pretty / Gotta look my best if we're gonna break up"). The lyrics, tone and theme of the songs on this album are the most mature of any of her albums to date, as borne out by tracks like "Trouble for Me," about that person you're aware is no good for you but that you also know you won't say no to, and "He About to Lose Me," about being out without your significant other and having conflicted feelings about being tempted by someone else. The songs convey authentic emotions, and adult listeners will be able to identify with the lyrics' themes. Some critics complained that she doesn't write her own songs, but neither did Three Dog Night. There were also complaints that the album is heavily produced, which is true. But if you are looking for a solid hour of high-quality dance-pop music, "Femme Fatale" is it.

PURE BRITTANY!! If you like Brittany Spears, you will LOVE this CD - you can dance to almost every song on the CD. You can practically FEEL her energetic pop/rock charm as she belts out "Work it, Work it!", and all the other songs on the CD. On most CD's I buy there is usually at least one song I don't like and always skip over. Not with this Brittany Femme Fatale CD - every song on the CD makes me want to sing and dance. Worth the $$ if you like Brittany "rock it on!" You go, B_ _ _ _!
