  1. Sorry, I completely missed that this was already posted! Anyway, what a weird... thing.
  2. Didn't expect to see this in my inbox this morning. Loot Crate have announced an exclusive and limited edition Britney Spears series of Loot Crates featuring merchandise inspired by her music. This isn't something I expected to see as typically Loot Crate series are focused more on gaming, anime and that sort of thing. What do you guys think?
  3. That's a real shame! I felt like they really underused it. After that, Crazy just became a remix-within-a-remix, using the Stop Remix vocals and just jazzing it up or doing something else. I dig the live remixes but I think Britney doing something like the original tracks that were released in videos would be pretty epic ... weird to say after so many years of performances and wanting something new, but simplicity I guess? Hah.
  4. I've never actually seen this but it's an awesome performance. It's also great to actually hear the Stop Remix of Crazy live because the majority of her performances have either been other remixes of Crazy or the album version - understandably because the Stop Remix was created a bit later and released the month before this performance, but it would've been neat to see more of that version performed live more - I always thought it was loads punchier. I may look it up as there may be performances I've missed. Thanks for sharing this!
  5. I can see it now, the next Britney album - and fitting for a wholesome and rounded 10th, as if capping off the first 10 albums with a victory - will be titled 'Brenda'. "Brenda", the new album by Britney Spears with the lead single, "The Penny Has Dropped" and promotional single, "Br^2" In all seriousness though, I don't think I've ever been so stoked for someone that I have no other connection to but being a long-time fan from the very beginning. I never am so invested, but knowing this is going down has somehow really affected me and in doing so, all I've been thinking and hoping for is for her to be free, for everything to be out there and just for her to get closer to her freedom. I think this is a huge and fantastic first step. I have more confidence, despite the constant delays, but I can't help but wonder the buzz behind the scenes for Jamie Spears and the asshats involved. They're obviously going to be doing what they can to make this even worse. Ridiculous. I still can't fathom how someone can do this to their own family. Awful.
  6. Hey, everyone. I had a look and didn't see this posted anywhere but I happened across this today - Britney has been re-released for the third time on vinyl via Urban Outfitters featuring a new colour variant (blue/yellow splatter) along with the cassette. Seems like this new wave began with the release of BJ, where they're now releasing new variants and the cassettes. Vinyl: Ships August 14th (Says Limited, but no quantity listed) Cassette: Ships September 11th (Limited to 3K copies) Unsure why they've missed the clear versions for both FF and BJ (for the completionists out there) but I wonder if this'll just be a continuous, ongoing cycle once they keep hitting BJ...
  7. I'm glad someone else thinks the same. I've been wanting a Marina / Britney collaboration ever since The Family Jewels! And I think it could work. Have you heard this? https://vimeo.com/391163046 Sorry, was trying to figure out how to embed but unsure. Anyway, the above makes me believe they could work wonders together.
  8. I think she's bloody great. I can't say I'm big on Gaga, Miley or Katy Perry. Gaga has the pipes and the greatest talent, I admit. Not my thing personally but she is good, however I lean more towards M.I.A in terms of style and music. Odd because Britney brought me to this forum, but M.I.A I listen to far more than those 3 put together (makes it easy because I hardly listen to them at all), so there's a bias. I like substance, not formula. M.I.A is the former.
  9. I really do hope this is the case. I know she's smarter than she's being made out to be (Instagram posts are dreadful right now) and she has a good head on her. She's always had insightful things to say and she always had an answer in the early days, but this c-ship has certainly taken it all out of her. So long as her focus is herself, her kids and her health, I think I am content with her not releasing music indefinitely until she's purely into it, like she was during the In The Zone days. If there's anything I hope for, it's that - if/when this c-ship finally comes to an end - that if/when she decided to record new music, that she uses the last decade plus as the impetus and motivation behind recording something, finally, that's beyond real. That she can finally speak/sing openly and honestly. Where she takes the c-ship by the balls and just destroys it. I hope that fire and passion come back and translate into some music that she wants to make, one that will shock people and one that'll allow her voice to be finally heard and more than being a singer who sings about **x, boys, etc. Something real. That is but a dream, but I think she deserves an outlet and I hope she does speak up one day. Openly and honestly without fear.
  10. I've always wanted to see a Britney feat. Janet, or Janet feat. Britney or just ... Britney and Janet. Whatever they put it, I think they could've done something perfectly. If it was produced by Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis, a la That's The Way Love Goes, I'd dig it. I think Britney needs a reincarnation of some sort, something we've never seen and we haven't seen her go fully R&B or hip-hop. She has the capability to do so, if they bothered to have an album that had more of a theme than a collection of songs. One could dream.
  11. I'm a massive fan of Marina and have been since her Mermaid vs Sailor EP days. The Family Jewels will always remain top for me, but I really don't understand the hate or dislike for Love + Fear as I really enjoyed it. She's always been pretty polarising though, but when it comes to Marina I'm not really hear from bops and more for her ethereal, atmospheric music. It's why Electra Heart, while it has some really decent tracks, seems out of place in her discography so far - it was forced on her in a way, or so it seems. Tracks like 'Rootless', 'Fear and Loathing', 'Valley of The Dolls', 'Handmade Heaven', 'Immortal' are a few that really stand out as favourites for me, it's probably just my taste but she does it so well and her voice really hits the mark. Anyway, this track already sounds on par with what I was hoping to hear and sounds fantastic. Love how the music ends up just being so 'full'. It almost sounds as if it samples a bit of 'Seventeen', a bit of a throw to her early music.
  12. Yeah, I agree. I see a lot of posts loving Blackout (and of course the others) but ITZ always remains the one, and highly-rotated, as it just doesn't seem to age. Could come out in this day and age and I'd still be enjoying it. It's a shame really because some really good things could've happened from then on if the knee-incident didn't happen, the greatest hits and then everything else - but that's the selfish side of me speaking as, considering the events that unfolded in her life, of course things would've changed. It's just sad to know that so early on the experimentation and risk-taking died a bit. BTMYH remains to be one of my favourite tracks of all time. When I finally got hold of the instrumental, still just sounds brilliant to me. Always did wonder what the lyrics were going to be before they changed it due to Britney thinking they were originally too mature.
  13. I think the most superior album in terms of production has to be In The Zone. It's probably one of her most diverse and experimental works, and even in the multi-tracks you can hear how much went into producing so much of the sound. While I like Blackout as an album, production-wise too, I just don't think it matched In The Zone. There's just something really complete and good about ITZ. Production on Glory was great too, but ITZ just never ceases to be one of her best I reckon. It is why these 3 tend to be the top 3 for me overall. There were a few tracks on Britney which I thought were good, like I'm A Slave 4 U and Boys/Remix, but everything Max Martin did up until that point sounds now majorly dated so I don't think it's overall as great. Choosing a single track in terms of production is difficult, but Touch of My Hand, Slumber Party and Make Me rank really high for me. There's something really 'full' and 'rounded' about them, as if you've been dipped in velvet or whatever that means. Just seems like liquid bliss. Breathe On Me, Change Your Mind and Born To Make You Happy all have excellent instrumentals as well.
  14. 1. Make Me... 2. I'm A Slave 4 U 3. Gimme More 4. Me Against The Music 5. Oops!... I Did It Again 6. Hold It Against Me 7. ..Baby One More Time 8. Womanizer 9. Work *****
  15. I actually hope that we could get a bonus disc with re-versions or re-imaginations of older hits, re-recorded and re-done. There's a lot of 're-'s here but yeah, you get what I mean. I really do hope they do a good job with promoting this album. Her 10th album could potentially tie in with her 20th anniversary since her debut, if not sooner, so it would be good to mark it well. I think this would've been a good moment to have released The Singles Collection too, but they went with that so early.
