My Baby is a little better than I was expecting. It's a bit cringey but sweet at the same time. Blur is very good.

Overall I'm very pleased with how the album turned out. I don't think I'll really know how it compares to Blackout for a few weeks yet though.


I feel like the albums were recorded by two different pop stars.

Yeah that's why I need to give Circus time to settle. I'm still a bit in NEW BRITNEY ALBUM euphoria. And even then, they're so different, for different moods. Ones the dark, drugged up album and the others the poppy, bouncy album (with a couple of exceptions). I'm still leaning towards Blackout but that's because I would naturally lean towards the darker end of the music spectrum anyway I think.
 
As it's the Japan-only bonus track, I've only listened to Amnesia from this leak.

It's fantastic to my ears. Like a lighter, less grungy Blackout track. And the beat is just simple, insistent, and pleasant. Can't wait to hear the rest of the album, etc.

Thanks a million breakfast, that's all I really needed. That track is so good I can't get over it.

Ah okay, you're welcome! And yeh, it's a super track. One of my favourite Britney tracks already I think!

15 new Britney tracks! I feel a bit of sadness with it though. Who knows with how many twists and turns her life takes on if this could possibly the last few new tracks we'll get from her if not ever. Certainly for a couple of years.

We've still got Trouble to look forward to (itunes preorder bonus). I'm sure some demos and stuff that didn't make the album will leak over time but yes, it is a little sad.

I thought I'd try doing the whole thing. There's a bit right before the final bridge that I can't quite figure out!

I saw him standing there in the parking lot
He asked if I came here a lot
And this is how I responded:

I forgot my name
I forgot my telephone number
If you wanna see me
He don’t even know it
I forgot my address
Damsel in distress
I forgot my boyfriend was the one that had bought me this rock

I get amnesia when I’m standing next to you-ooh-ooh
He’s been with me for several years I know this much is true
Didn’t know it was over
‘Til you came on over
And told me that you jus-just can’t forget about me

I talk to my girls
I can talk to my girls like crazy
To anyone, I speak my mind
I tell ‘em off, it don’t faze me
I’m not lazy
But boy, lately
When I see you I stuh-utter
Words just slip away like butterflies

I saw you standing there in the VIP on Friday
We conversate up in my fantasies, like every day
But I’m a dud whenever you approach
Like yesterday when you just came to say hello

I forgot my name
I forgot my telephone number
If you wanna see me
He don’t even know it
I forgot my address
Damsel in distress
I forgot my boyfriend was the one that had bought me this rock

I get amnesia when I’m standing next to you-ooh-ooh
He’s been with me for several years
I know this much is true
Didn’t know it was over
‘Til you came on over
And told me that you jus-just can’t forget about me

Me, me, this is how I do

I talk to most guys
I can talk to most guys like crazy
To anyone, I speak my mind
I tell ‘em off, it don’t faze me
But you shake me
Boy, you make me
Stah-ah-ah-ah-op and stutter
When we touch I melt like butter

I saw you standing there in the VIP on Saturday
Now that I know you’ve got a thing for me, I should be straight
Not the kind of girl who’d just let any guy get close
All I can say is I’mma tell my guy he should [?]

Forget my name
And forget my telephone number
If you wanna see me
He don’t even know it
I forgot my address
Damsel in distress
I forgot my boyfriend was the one that had bought me this rock

I get amnesia when I’m standing next to you-ooh-ooh
He’s been with me for several years
I know this much is true
Didn’t know it was over
‘Til you came on over
And told me that you jus-just can’t forget about me

Me, me, this is how I do
 
ok i've heard half the songs and saving the rest for the 29th when its released here.

but this goes to show u how clips aren't no means to an end. This really is Blackout 2.0 with more personality behind the material.

and again, the bonus tracks are awesome.

yes, i'm declaring this the best pop album of the year.

I think the part in question is:

<i>All I can say is I’mma tell my guy he should just effing go and...</i>

I haven't even thought of Kill the Lights today, it's all about If You Seek Amy, isn't it?

Kill the Lights = Break the Ice pt.2

That's why i dont like it, i was never a fan of BTI.
If You Seek Amy, there are better tracks on the album in all fairness... people are just attached to the gimmick of it meaning fuck me.

I don't understand the hate for Mannequin...
 
to me, this is IN THE ZONE x 1000.

meaning: it's perfection. more pop than Blackout, but wth enough urban/club edge to be seen as a proper follow up to that perfect record.

its another giant leap in the right direction for britney, for sure.

right now my favorite has to be UNUSUAL YOU. i mean...wow. perfection. its probably the most "adult" sounding thing she's ever done. its very madonna-ish, but somehow better than anything madonna has released in the last 7 years.

I love Mannequin, it's so weird, with about eight million layers attached to it. I haven't really got to the point where I start really disliking any of the tracks yet, although I have to say I think Blur is filler on a stick.
 
yeah Kill the Lights feels like an extension of BTI, and i think its a great song (and at this stage a very radio friendly single). definitely feeling it.
 
Watching the Mannequin rehersal video, i can hear the words in it now, where as before it was just under under under ground ect ect
 
I can't actually believe someone posted the links to all of the songs in a comment on britney.com ... then proceeds to ask for them to be kept up.
 
I looooooove Amnesia. My favorite by far of the whole bunch.

Womanizer, Kill The Lights, If U Seek Amy, Unusual You, Mannequin, Shattered Glass are all amazing.

Out From Under, Circus, Lace And Leather, Rock Me In and Phonography are great.

I guess I'll have the unpopular opinion of the day, I happen to like Mmm Papi.

My Baby, Blur are really bad.

Dunno why Circus is the next single. It's a little eh. KTL, Amy, or Unusual You would've been better.

I think I like Blackout better, but I've only had the album for a day, so that's all probably gonna change with more plays.
