"Inside Out" has leaked in full and it is AMAZING
"Inside Out" has leaked in full and it is AMAZING
I think Drop Dead Beautiful is more single-worthy than Inside Out, but I don't like either song.
The whole album leaked in full
OMG IT LEAKED!!!!!
I wanna go is FLAWLESS!!!!!!
I actually like this compare to the real album cover
I love the album!
It shits all over Circus
Listening to it right now...
Still buying a few copies though
This album is PERFECTION
FUCKING AMAZING! This is right up there with Blackout, if not better!
The more I listen to it the more I fall completely in love with it ALL. Seriously there is not a weak song on this album
Reviews so far...getting amazing reviews
THE SUN: BRITNEY SPEARS has graduated from pop princess to hardcore dance queen.
More! Magazine: Britney Spears's new album is ruddy brilliant
3am: ITS BRILLIANT!
POPJUSTICE: 'Femme Fatale' is basically brilliant.
So the general opinion is that the album is brilliant...weird because so many people on here tend to downplay Britney
Just had my first listen and OH MY GOD!
IT"S FUCKING FLAWLESS!!!!!!
I Wanna Go should be a single, I think. Haven't listened to the whole album just yet but it's definitely worthy of single status.
I have said ever since "Blackout" came out that Britney will never make an album as hot as that.
I was so very wrong
Can't wait to hear the bonus tracks
Top 3 addictions?
Trip to your heart (Beautiful and edgy at the same time)
How I roll (The title should change to "innovation" because the production on that song must have taken place on a different planet)
Seal it with a kiss (Pure, Britney, pop, bliss)
I'm obsessed with Inside Out, Trip to Your Heart, Trouble For Me, and I Wanna Go. I love this album. Seriously, I love every track. Usually with a Brit album there are one or two songs that I skip over but not this one, I listen and enjoy every song.
I am so surprised that "Trouble For Me" made it to the album
With her song
Both are amazing. Although they are literally saying the same thing.
Yesterday I loved "How I roll" Now I am obsessed.
I love the new album so much. It's everything I love about Britney. It's so awesome and the sounds are addictive. I can't wait for the spring and summer to blast this bit of epicness.
I made this as a sig for another forum. lol.
New OUT magazine pic
My favorites so far
"I wanna go" so catchy and good
"Trouble for me" such a good intro!
I'm not a big britney fan, but i loved blackout and I'm glad this album went a little towards that direction. I'm not in love with the album but i feel some songs will get better with a couple listens.
dont be afraid of a little bit of pain,
pleasure is on the other side.
I don't consider myself a Britney fan but I Wanna Go is so infectious. I love the whistling bit and have been listening to it on repeat for a while now...good song and definitely #1.
What she needs to do is release signals a couple weeks after Gaga's are released so there's no competition via #1s.
I like that's there's a little reference to ...baby one more time in Inside Out
"You know what I want right now, hit me one more time, it's so amazing"
if i said i want your body now, would you hold it against me...
I've listend to the record and she does exactly what she's expected to do... Very nice to finally have a Britney album that does sound like britney spears.
SHe does have a few songs that could potentially be huge hits
- Seal It With a kiss
- The big fat bass
- inside out
- Drop dead Beautiful
- I wanna go
- Trouble for me
Nothin amazing but good job overall
I can't stop listening to this album. lol. I love it. <3
I would have to say this is my absolute FAVOURITE album that I have ever heard in general. I love ALL the songs. There is not one song I don't like. Originally, I didn't like Criminal, or Big Fat Bass, but they both grew on me extremely quickly.
I am extremely satisfied with this album, and cannot wait to see what she will do with it on tour. It has been reported she wants to sing live on her next tour but I don't know how that will work with this album. The beats are incredibly fast and a bit auto-tuned.
I WILL BE BUYING FEMME FATALE!
I think I Wanna Go will be the next single, (Drop Dead) Beautiful, and then either Gasoline or Seal It Will A Kiss.
If Inside Out is released at all, I think it would be the closing single similar to Everytime. I think it shares similar flavours.
I seriously have listened to nothing but this album. I love it so much
Does anyone hate that beat she plays throughout the song, Trouble For Me? I really want to edit it out. I cannot stand it. I reminds me of that Americano song played on Jersey Shore, lol. Other wise, I LOVE Trouble For Me!
I can't get enough of "How I Roll"!! Bloodshy & Avant = GENUIS!
Seal it with a kiss is VERY GOOD
So far early reviews are positive!
Rolling Stone Staff 4/5 stars
Rolling Stone Community 5/5 stars

This album is amazing. It is my favorite piece of work she has ever done. Every song is so different but it all works together.
Criminal and I Wanna Go are instant hits and my favorites!
The critics are eating it up too!
Pure pop genius!
I love what this guy said about Britney on Rolling Stone's website...
Ignore all the references to other pop stars. That is not what I am focusing on. I whited out all the seemingly "negative" references to other pop stars because I know how psycho some people can get. If you want to read them then highlight it.
"Well, let's try to answer your question: what is Britney's appeal?
Obviously, much of her appeal depends upon the legacy she built during her first five years, which, in case you were in a coma for, were some of the most explosive that pop culture ever had the pleasure of experiencing. She was as ubiquitous and bombastic as Lady Gaga is today — without all of the haughty pretension that the latter is currently infecting the pop scene with. From the Catholic schoolgirl outfit (Britney's idea) to the iconic VMA performances from '00 (the glittery faux-nude outfit), '01 (the snake) and '03 (the Madonna kiss), to her world-class dancing, Britney always delivered a hypnotic, intoxicating set of imagery to go along with her world-class pop. She and her collaborators have delivered so many gems to us — ...Baby One More Time, Oops!...I Did It Again, I'm a Slave 4 U, Toxic, Womanizer, and so on. Many of her hits were indeed co-written by her (including Me Against the Music and Everytime), but I don't see why that matters. (By the way: who chose Toxic as a single? Who came up with the video idea? Britney. You don't know that, of course, because Britney doesn't care about getting all the credit, unlike some arrogant pop stars that I can think of.)
But quite frankly, much of her musical appeal is her distinct, unique voice. People confuse having a powerhouse voice with the ability to sing well. Britney Spears' voice is, quite honestly, fantastic. It's wonderful for pop. It's got a thin, sexy, girlish quality that is also found in the likes of Kylie Minogue, another pop queen who confounds the critics. Those types of voices are perfect for sexy, minor-key-dominant pop. Ask yourself if Christina Aguilera could have ever pulled off a song like Kylie's "Chocolate" or Britney's "Breathe On Me." Or even some of the new songs, like "(Drop Dead) Beautiful," "Trip to Your Heart," and "Trouble for Me." Only a singer with Britney's voice could have pulled those off. She is the essential ingredient in her music. Her songs wouldn't work in the hands of Katy Perry or Rihanna. Hers is one of the only voices in the industry that is not interchangeable with someone else. It's absolutely anything but generic.
And as for songwriting? Rihanna's "Loud" has no credits to her but her voice. Beyonce steals songwriting credits, for God's sake. But no one constantly criticizes them for their "lack of involvement" on their records — even though, as I've mentioned, Britney indeed has written or helped write a few of her big hits!
Is the reason that you people don't 'get' this that Britney doesn't care about promoting herself as the second coming, like Lady Gaga does? Thank God for it — the woman is as down-to-earth as it comes. She'd never go out there like Lady Gaga, talking about "giving birth to a new race" because of her cultural appeal. She is delightfully appealing as a person because she tries so hard to maintain some sense of normalcy. And my God, she was nearly destroyed by the media culture that created her — but she, unlike Elvis, unlike Whitney Houston, unlike Michael Jackson — came back and overcame her problems. She could have ended up destroyed like those other icons. She didn't. She came back to hit #1 again and again and again. She's had three #1s since her big comeback. It's absolutely amazing, and not enough credit is given to her for how much she's had to deal with and what she's overcome. Maybe she made herself a target for stupid media critics, but she's remained a real person throughout everything. She's just the whole freakin' pop package and I don't understand why this is so difficult to understand."
"Trip to your heart"
Is turning into literally the most amazing song I have ever heard in my life
amazing review! it captures everything i love about britney. source??
This album is bliss. The first one of hers that I play through from beginning to end.
So much variety yet all Britney!
I can't even list favs because they are all standout tracks to me. I gotta give love to Trip To Your Heart though. Ugh, that song just melts me...
Good job, once again, Britney!!!
And btw, does she say
"You can be my fuck tonight" on How I Roll?? In my mind she does hahaha
More rave reviews
Album Review: Britney Spears – Femme Fatale
“But she doesn’t write her own songs!” the naysayers sneer, as though this invalidates Britney Spears’s career as a singer.
It’s a ridiculous claim, of course. Not because it isn’t true—Britney’s never pretended that she crafts her own music–but because some of the greatest singers of the 20th century didn’t write their own material. I’m thinking Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Nina Simone, to name a few high-profile examples. Nobody would deny their artistry, which came not from the creation of original melody but rather from the way they imbued others’ music with their own signature spirit. These legends made the songs they sang their own, and that’s why they became legends in the first place.
Now, Britney Spears is no Nina Simone. But it’s foolish to disregard her albums simply because she didn’t write the hits herself. Britney’s success has always come from the way she sold the myth of her sincerity; when she commanded us to “hit me baby one more time,” she sounded like she meant it. We believed her; we bought into the Britney pop juggernaut, and what we’ve gotten out of this cultural transaction has been an impressive collection of modern pop classics, culminating in the flawed, mysterious, and magnificent Blackout.
Then came Circus, and sure, “Womanizer” and the title track did well on the Billboard charts. But the problem with that album was that for the first time, Britney sounded as convincing as a karaoke singer after a couple Valiums and a whiskey soda. Even on the global tour supporting the album, Britney seemed to be going through the motions of pop stardom. The music was catchy, but the presentation was more than a little sad and empty.
Which is why I’m delighted to report that she’s back, for real this time. Not only are the dozen tracks on Femme Fatale catchy and joyous, they’re also some of the most sonically interesting of her career. From the skeletal, piano-driven house of “How I Roll” to the Yelle-inspired whistling on “I Wanna Go” and the flower-power flute on closer “Criminal,” Britney and her producers have made an album that never tries for Top 40 radio accessibility but achieves it on the merits of its charms.
Even a track featuring will.i.am manages to avoid sounding obnoxious.
The most memorable aspect of Ms. Spears’s music, of course, has always been the hooks; on Femme Fatale, they’re massive. Opener “Till The World Ends” apes the refrain from 80s MTV mainstay “Tarzan Boy,” but Britney somehow makes the song’s wordless chanting sound infinitely more expansive than Baltimora ever could. “(Drop Dead) Beautiful” takes about twenty seconds to explode into an 808-backed bridge as pristine as the Golden Gate. And we’ve already discussed why lead single “Hold It Against Me” is so successful.
Don’t get me wrong—Femme Fatale isn’t a perfect album; “Seal It With A Kiss” and “Gasoline” are pat but forgettable. But Britney makes up for these momentary lags with plenty of gems; the synth-driven balladry of “Inside Out” and relentless rhythm of second single “Till The World Ends” are both destined to become fan favorites.
But none of these songs’ catchy qualities would matter if Britney didn’t sound like she cared. Fortunately for us, she sounds more passionate on this album than she has since “My Prerogative.” On the aforementioned will.i.am-assisted “Big Fat Bass,” she tells the listener that “you can be my bass,” and she makes it sound like the most important role we can fulfill. The snobs will keep on hating, but I for one am more than happy to oblige her
Gah I'm loving all of these reviews. They're great ammunition against my friends who keep telling me Britney is over
OMG! The 4 bonus tracks snippets just leaked!! http://www.breatheheavy.com/index.ph...ce=twitterfeed
I am extremely intrigues by He About To Lose Me and Dont Keep Me Waiting. They all sound great though.
