After a 3 year hiatus Britney Spears has returned with her 7th studio album Femme Fatale. Her first single off this album (Hold It Against Me) showed that she still had some drawing power. Yet, one has to wonder if that was a fluke or if she indeed still has it.
By all indications this album shows that Britney definitely still has what it takes to compete against the newest crop of pop tarts and she isn’t going away any time soon. Working with the upper tier of producers such as Max Martin, will.i.am & Bloodshy (from Bloodshy & Avant) probably also upped her chances of success.
With that said a lot of these songs fit well within the popular Electro Pop sound that everyone is milking right now. Thankfully there’s not too much repetition between songs so having a bunch of similar sounding songs in a row isn’t too much of an issue. Although some may tire quickly due to the focus of the album being heavy on the dance tracks.
Those who miss or like the ballad singing Britney should probably not listen to this because there’s absolutely none of that present on this album. Femme Fatale is definitely geared towards those with low attention spans who like their beats fast, their hooks easy to sing along to & fist pumping.
Still, as a whole this is actually a really good album. I was kind of expecting a lot of filler but for the most part that was minimal and the only weak song I heard was one of the bonus tracks called He About To Lose Me.
Femme Fatale is definitely not going to be within everyone’s taste and those who expect high class pop are going to be disappointed. But if you just want some decent background noise, workout music or driving tunes you can’t go wrong with this.
