Import, CD Single
Customers who bought this item also bought
Australian pressing of Britney's 2007 'comeback' single, the catchy tune that she 'performed' at the MTV Video Music Awards. With so much controversy and public scrutiny surrounding her every move, it's easy to forget that Britney is a Pop artist, first and foremost. Features two versions of 'Gimme More': Main Version and Instrumental. Zomba.

Gimme More is the first single off Britney Spears' 5th studio album Blackout. After being absent from the music scene for about 3 years, people were excited/nervous to see if Britney Spears still had it. And she did. Gimme More was an instint success, landing at number 3 on the charts. Unfortunately, do to Britney's state at the time, she couldn't do much promoting, so Jive promoted by releasing as much remixes as they could. We did get a music video for Gimme More though, and the disasterous VMA performance.
1. Gimme More (Album Version) 4/5 - It's amazing the first few days you listen to it, but after a while it goes away, and it starts to get boring.
2. Gimme More (Kaskade Club Mix) 4/5 - Nothing really special here. The synths are pretty good, but basically all these remixes use synths.
3. Gimme More (Junkie XL Extended Mix) 1/5 - I hate this remix. Some of the synths get too loud and it hurts my ears when I listen to it.
4. Gimme More (Seiji Dub) 3/5 - Hardly uses any vocals, but the instrumental is pretty good.
5. Gimme More (StoneBridge Club Mix) 3.5/5 - This is another one of those O.K. remixes. Again, nothing is really special about this remix, and it's too long.
6. Gimme More (Music Video) 1/5 - I'm really disappointed. The original ideo for this video sounded amazing, but Jive edited it so that it's basically Britney dancing around a stripper pole for the ENTIRE video. It's boring, and it sucks.
So, these remixes aren't that great. The only thing on the Enhanced Features section is the Gimme More video. But this is the only single that includes these remixes, so if you're a die hard fan, buy it. If not, avoid this, because you will not be pleased.
For me, the Paul Oakenfold Radio mix is the best which can be found from iTunes or Amazon MP3 download, i believe.
StoneBridge Club Mix is worth listening too but long remix like this usually brought tedious effect, so i still prefer the shorter edited version from any remix.
But here, most of the tracks slow down the vibe of the song and don't deliver the electro vibe this song could have delivered.
2. Kaskade mix (danceable, but it actually lightens up the attitude of the song, making it lighter with bright synths) (6:10)
3. Junkie XL mix (more like CLUNKY XL mix. BORING.) (5:55)
4. Seiji dub (oh yippee. A clunky DUB) (5:06)
5. Stonebridge mix (a bit of a better, darker dance vibe than the kaskade mix, this is the strongest mix on here, and pretty much the reason to buy this package, but it's still not all that) (7:24)
THE version to get is the slammin' Paul Oakenfold mix, which is available in its 6 minute format on the Japanese import of Blackout as a bonus track--and it's well worth the price because the CD also has 3 other bonus tracks, one of which is a hot take on the Eurythmics classic "sweet dreams".
There are also many other mixes of the song floating around, so lets hope some of them show up on some dance compilations like Ultra or Thrivemix.
