Britney's New Album Gets Reviewed

After Britney Spears's disastrous VMA performance I shudder to think about the number of CDs she is going to sell when her new work drops on November 13. People's music critic, Chuck Arnold, got a sneak peek at Brtiney's latest list of hopeful hits. Here's what he had to say:

  • In addition to the pulsating first single, "Gimme More," other tracks we heard at an exclusive preview have a synth-heavy sound that nods to new wave. The defiant "Piece of Me" the likely second single and possible album title, features Spears's heavily processed voice issuing the challenge: "You want a piece of me?" to her foes.
  • "Break the Ice," another uptempo number featuring Spears's trademark breathy vocals, was produced by Timbaland protege Nate "Danjahandz" Hills.
  • The Rihanna-esque "Radar" (also produced by Bloodshy & Avant), sets Spears's chirpy delivery to a bouncy beat, while the driving "Heaven on Earth," an early fave, is a throbbing throwback to "I Feel Love"-era Donna Summer.

I don't know about you, but nothing this guy wrote makes me want to go out and get this. How much bad news can Britney really take?
