Advantages: some good songs, nice cover
Disadvantages: no songwords included, a few rubbish tracks
If you stopped by my house, you would often hear me blaring out music from my bedroom, and if you are really lucky you might get the chance to hear my singing along to them too (my poor neighbours)! Well, this is one of the CD's in my collection, which I used to play continuously, but not so often now.

TRACK ONE – Oops!… I Did It Again
This song is meant to be based about the captain of an imaginary space shuttle who has supposedly fell in love with Britney Spears. Britney has misled him into believing that she feels the same way and I guess that is where the title comes in.
This is a fairly loud/noisy track, depending on whether or not you like the song.
The video is set on the moon and she is wearing a skin tight, red leather cat suit. The dance moves seem quite easy to learn and the moves look good too.
TRACK TWO – Stronger
This sings very different from all her others so far and she has a change of image which didn't last long though. There is also another choon sung by another American female artist, which reminds me of this. I can't remember much about it but I do know that they both released the singles at around the same time.
It includes the lyrics 'Here I go, on my own, don't need nobody, better of alone.' this reminds me of some of her more recent songs which have all been about her indepe
ndence and showing that she is growing up.
The music and effects are very over the top and dramatic with the added lightening effect now and again.
TRACK THREE – Don’t Go Knockin’ On My Door
This is one of those songs which stays in your head for hours, even if you don't particularly like it, and irritates the hell out of you. I can live listening to it every now and then, but often feel the urge to skip to the more lively and exciting ones. This is more like some of her early slushy songs and is a little repetitive and tiresome.
TRACK FOUR – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
This song is my favourite. As far as I know, it has not been released as a single but it is a really cool song which is great to listen, sing and dance too, all at the same time if your feeling energetic. It starts off calm and slow then picks up a pretty fast pace and carries it throughout the whole song. I love making up groovy dance moves and singing my heart out whenever I play this song. The only thing I would say is that my Grandad couldn't even understand what the lyrics were and kept complaining about the loud noise, whoops!
TRACK FIVE – Don’t Let Me Be the Last to Know
This is another boring romantic song with those impossible-to-reach notes. The video is set on a tropical beach with sun, sea and sand. Britters is wearing a cute belly top with matching white trousers (I think) and doesn't do much dancing in the vid. All she seems to do is just sit around wearing little bikini tops and staring lovingly at her boyfriend. This is one that I tend to turn off, as it makes me want to throw up!
TRACK SIX – What U See (Is What U Get)
This song is just made to make you feel good about yourself and I think it has a kind of girl power theme added in too. It's cross between Spice Girls, Destiny's child, and of course, Britney herself. The music is very upbe
at and one to wake you up on those mornings when you feel that you just want to lie in bed all day. A lot of the song has background singers in, which I feel makes the song more powerful and alive.
TRACK SEVEN – Lucky
This is a song, which shows two different sides – the fans and the movie star’s. Britney plays Lucky the film star and tells the story as her. The song tells us that Lucky is very lonely,
"And she cries, cries, cries in her lonely heart thinking, if there's nothing missing in my life, then why do these tears come at night?"
This has been number one and is brilliant to listen to, the video is great and her costumes are absolutely brilliant.
TRACK EIGHT – One Kiss from You
This is a pretty poppy song, which is sung, in typical Britney style. Although I don’t like this tune that much, I will say that the lyrics in the song are clear, and easy to remember, But beware, there are some hard to reach high notes! I don't think there is really much I can say about this song really.
TRACK NINE – Where Are You Now?
This song starts slow, but speeds up after time. It is extremely boring and I don’t really like it. It doesn’t reach Britney’s usual standard, I have to say. This is definitely one to fast forward on your tape recorder, or skip on you Compact Disc player. I haven't heard this one for over a year now and wouldn't want to either!
TRACK TEN – Can’t Make You Love Me
I’ve not much to say about this song, only that it’s speedy and some of the lyrics are quite moving. Once I’ve stopped the CD, the only bit I can remember is the chorus. It's hardly very dancy and doesn’t exactly ant you to make you jump of your chair to to dig some moves. I'd rather they replaced this with the song 'We love rock and roll' which is from her first ever movie, Cross
TRACK ELEVEN – When Your Eyes Say It
The words to this song are simple, and the tune sounds like a lullaby. There is no way this song would be a major hit if it were ever sold as a single, unless it had an interesting song on the other side. This is one to play if you of your kids are having trouble getting to bed; it makes me want to drift off even when I am in a really active and alert mood!
TRACK TWELVE – Dear Diary
This starts with Britney gossiping with her friends, but then changes, so she is writing entries in her diary. She tells her diary her deepest thoughts, feelings and desires, shame we don't hear about them really, that would be well interesting! Dear Diary gets high pitched in places, but I think there’s more talk in it than singing.
Personally, my favourites are Oops…I Did It Again, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction and Stronger. Most of them are good songs, but I would miss out tracks nine and eleven. The album is quite good value for money, but would be even better if it had the best tracks from this album and her latest album combined.
Hope this helps, Littlepenguin :)
