‘Blackout’ Receives Positive Reviews

October 28, 2007 By Jordan Miller


“”Blackout,” her first studio album in four years, is not only a very good album, it’s her best work ever – a triumph, with not a bad song to be found on the 12 tracks.”


“…there is plenty of hot music for dancing one’s troubles away on Britney Spears’s new album, Blackout, her first studio CD since 2003’s In the Zone”

“Blackout — a collection of well-produced, thoroughly enjoyable dance songs — may just put this once-celebrated pop star back on top.”


“Against all odds, Spears’ album is her best. On ‘Blackout,’ Britney emerges confident, sensual and in control… Listening to “Blackout” is not only an energetic release, it’s also a relief: No, Spears hasn’t completely lost it, and yes, her career has a flicker of fire left — actually much, much more.”


“…the CD shows that, overall, Spears still has sparks in the recording studio.”


“One element that makes this clearly a Britney Spears album is the presence of a scattering of irresistible individual songs that are catchy enough to stick in the head like a wad of tasty bubblegum.”


“Britney Spears, “Blackout” (Jive Records): Just when it seemed safe to write off Britney Spears as a punch line only capable of entertaining people through tabloid escapades, she goes and gets all musically relevant on us.”

“…the singer’s first in four years, contains flashes of the zippy pop and propulsive dance beats Brit fans treasure…”


“She is first and foremost a pop star. In a life not exactly saturated with joy, she should take a certain amount of pleasure in the fact that Blackout coheres far better than sprawling recent sets by her fellow Mickey Mouse Club alumni Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.”


“Britney Spears hasn’t been able to lose the paparazzi in recent months, but she does joyously lose herself in music on her new Blackout.”
