Does it matter? Does anyone even go for the standard intentionally?

I really don't understand why they even bother releasing standard and deluxe editions, especially now in the streaming age.

It matters because a bonus track probably isn't going to be a single. It's also not great for marketing if a bunch of good tracks that are progressive for her aren't on the standard edition because that's the edition that critics review.

I see. That makes sense, but still... they should just get rid of the whole standard/deluxe thing. It makes more sense to just put out one version so everyone can enjoy everything without being confused, you know?
 
I like reviews when they're well written and constructive. Its not fun when a big time bias is coming through- whether its a positive one or not. Like Rob Sheffield's reviews of Britney aren't that fun to read because they're just masturbatory in praise. We get it, you love her. On the flip side the EW review of Lotus was so bizarrely negative that it was clearly some personal issue and had nothing to do with the music.
 
There was alot of good press surrounding Femme Fatale because of the great reviews. I think it matters to some extent, and after the dismal reviews for Britney Jean, I think it's important to lead in with great reviews.

Surprisingly- at least from what I remember- the Britney Jean reviews weren't abysmal. They were just really average. It didn't get as panned as it probably deserved.
 
Not a Thai exclusive track sneaking it's way into my top 5.


However, do you remember some weeks ago when we all would joke about her doing Carpool Karaoke, fantasizing about it but always being sure that would never happened?
Now this is happening. We will hear her live vocals for the first time since 2012 (I_CANNOT_USE_REAL_WORDS_PROPERLY_). That's like a televised Superbowl Halftime performed on the moon, we would never expect it to be true
 
A straight white male is never going to give her a good review. They don't got a clue about sensual sexy music or how to get into that zone so to say.

What year are you living in? A straight white male is as likely to give her a good review as anyone else. Attitudes have changed in regards to pop music. Those middle-aged guys are mostly "poptimists" now, the boomers are retiring, and a lot of writers from our/my generation (well, the mid-late 20s) were never afraid of pop music. Pitchfork was already feeding us "Toxic," Blackout, Mariah, Madonna, Beyonce, and Rihanna by the time people my age were in high school.
