Britney Spears - Glory

I think Femme Fatale is easy to disregard because Britney herself felt very absent throughout the whole era and that disconnect and indifference gave way to the outright disappearing act of Britney Jean.

It's a very glossy album but also largely anonymous and very of its time. It doesn't help that she slipped into somewhat local territory and that the tour was pretty underwhelming. US radio loved her for the first time in a decade but elsewhere Hold It Against Me didn't have as much sticking power as previous leads and I Wanna Go seems forgotten. Til The World Ends definitely feels like the most enduring moment of the whole era and even that is, fittingly, about as remembered as your average Kesha single.

I still listen to pretty much all of Britney's albums. I actually have this ritual when a new album is released... I load all her albums onto my phone and listen to each one (in order) before diving into the new album. I have no idea why I do that, but I have since Circus was released and will probably continue to do so.
Ohhhhhhh. Great idea! Starting tonight.
 
Does anyone have an update on how Make Me is doing on radio and spotify? I know we've had so many goodies over the last week (especially that video) but I'd love to know if the song has any potential of beating it's debut position.

On a similar note, any guesses as to when we will know what the second single is?

I definitely love Femme Fatale, but it never felt like a Britney album to me. It was the first time in her entire career where I felt like the criticism about her being nothing more than a producer's artist felt warranted. And then Britney Jean happened and I honestly wondered what she could offer as an artist anymore. I'm glad Glory seems to be shaping up to be a return to form. People may not be feeling the new songs completely, and that's fair, but can anyone deny that they aren't completely Britney and dripping with more personality than we've heard from her in years? Plus it's better to feel something than be completely numb to whatever someone is releasing.
