[NEW RELEASES] Britney Spears


Like it or not, there is something gripping about Britney Spears and her nasal voice. Her appeal comes shining through on her seventh studio album, “Femme Fatale,” a full-blown package of catchy electro-pop tunes produced by longtime collaborator Max Martin, hit-maker Dr. Luke and a stable of other veterans.

From the first song, “Till the World Ends,” to the lead single, “Hold it Against Me” and the heart-throbbing “Big Fat Bass” (featuring will.i.am,) these are infectious tunes spiced up with Euro-disco beats and robotic dubstep.

Some may say that the album lacks depth, that it is no more than a collection of trendy club dance mixes, and while there may be some truth to that, it’s worth remembering that serious music doesn’t necessarily get you groovin’ on the dance floor.

Brit’s fully Auto-Tuned voice falls into sync with a synthy keyboard and techno backbeat on “Seal It with a Kiss” and “Trip to Your Heart” has a sugary yet mechanized sound that still manages to sound ethereal.
