Okay, so this may look a bit weird on my page...a Britney Spears release in amongst a lot of releases for rock bands! But im a person that will TRY anything in music, even if its something i perceive to be rubbish before i've heard it - just so that my rating and review is justified. And seeing as i have a Spotify account i can listen to any album, like this one, for free and still within the law.

Anyway my reason for this review aside. I grew up with Miss Spears on the radio as i was born in '94. So i pretty much know who she is, her shenanigans in the press and all of her hits from her debut to present. So today while listening to some classic 70s rock (Aerosmith, Bad Company and Kiss) i thought hmm i feel like reviewing a mainstream pop album. So i picked one at random from what was selling on ebay and up came Oops!...I Did It Again. I thought yeah i shall give this a brief decent review.

Now im currently listening to Oops!... as im typing this and yep - i got what i expected. Teen pop (which is the style she took on in her early years) that is so over processed in the studio, with lyrics that replicate dreams that girls of 10 and under have. So the album starts off with one of her most well known songs, Oops!...I Did It Again - also the album title. Which is okay for a radio hit, i dont look highly upon much stuff played on the radio - but its not the worst one i've heard to be in the top 10, although it sure as hell can be annoying and has the emotional depth of a puddle in summer. I also find it really strange how their are no Written-By credits for this album either, so im guessing shes just singing these lyrics not writing them too. After the title track we get to another well known hit by miss spears, Stronger - which just brings back too many memories of being young (my sister had it on an Early Learning Centre Cassette when i was young)...and yep its still as poppy as it was back then. The third track i dont mind actually, it has a really cool beat to it, and maybe thats all thats good on this album. It has a very much of a pop-lock beat to it, and the vocals are pretty alright. After that well it almost becomes and undistinguishable mess of over produced pop crap (i was trying to avoid using that word, but sorry it is). It all sounds the same, every track has a continual beat with no tempo changes, Britney's vocals come in two forms nasily singing or talking (with the use of a form of voice modification). The songs after 3 range between quite upbeat songs like track 8 to slower tracks like 12 - but still nonetheless a mush of synthetic drum beats and other sounds that sound like they came from a £60 keyboard from Toys'R'Us.

What amazes me is that Britney's vocals really only have one tone, and have always really done...you never hear her singing like one of her other musical peers from the Disney channel *cough*Christina Augliera*cough*. Okay so there are forms of rock that are similar in the way that they are sung in one tone, one that springs to mind is Grunge, but still at least that music has depth to redeem it from 1 dimensional vocals. Maybe Britney cannot sing any higher, or lower for that matter, than she already does and will always forever and a day sing with this lullaby sound...even if it does become a bit sultry at times (Womanizer) then again she completely DROPS singing in that track and just goes for talking.....sadly Womanizer is a guilty pleasure of mine just for the beat that i like (it was when that sound wasnt killed by Miss GaGa, Mrs Cole and their motley crew that are destroying music day-by-day).
