Britney has several greatest hits collections out already, most recently in 2009 with "The Singles Collection". Now comes this rock-bottom priced "very best" compilation.
"Playlist: The Very Best of Britney Spears" (14 tracks; 51 min.) covers much of the same ground of the previous greatest hits collections, but it is very nicely updated with 3 hits from the 2011 "Femme Fatale" album: "Till The World Ends", "Hold It Against Me" and "I Wanna Go". To perhaps entice the more rabbid Brtiney fan, there is also the new "Circus [Diplo Circus Remix]", not that you really need to have it. There are many other great choice hits on here, many of the "classics", but this is certainly not a comprehensive "best of", hence titled the "very best of", I suppose. Regretfully, this compilation is not sequenced chronologically, but that's just me.
Selling at a rock-bottom price, even with many hits missing, this is a no-brainer for anyone wanting to get a casual introduction to Britney. I saw her again in concert last year on the "Femme Fatale" tour, and putting aside whether she was lip-synching some of the songs (which I don't care about), it was a fabulous concert experience. Britney is getting yet more exposure resulting from her judging role on the "X Factor", and I suspect this release is a way of cashing in on that while we await her next album. Meanwhile, this compilation is a can't-miss for any casual Britney fan. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This compilation favours Spears' dance songs, so there is no "Sometimes" or "Everytime" included here. From start to finish, it's an upbeat affair. What is impressive is how consistently good Spears' music has been over the years. Her latest hits "Hold You Against Me" and "'Til The World Ends" stand up well against her classic Hits "... Baby One More Time" and "Toxic". A bonus mix of "Circus" is ialso ncluded. The only major omission is "3", but personally, that has never been a favourite of mine.
At a budget price and featuring excellent sound, this is a must-buy if you don't have a Britney compilation in your music collection.
If you want a more "complete" collection of her hits, check out: "The Essentials: Britney Spears" --> this has 2 full discs (36 songs?) of all her major hits. Trust me... this will take you down memory lane... listen and enjoy!
