Typically, whenever a self-titled album arrives fairly far into an artist's career it signifies a rebirth, a moment when the musician reconnects to what's real and true. That's the party line on Britney Jean, Britney Spears' eighth album (she already used Britney as the title of her third album, way back in 2001). Prior to its December 2013 release, Britney called Britney Jean one of her most "personal" records, a term that carries a certain weight, suggesting that the brief album -- a mere ten songs and 36 minutes in its standard form and not much longer in its deluxe expansion -- would offer insight into the spectral pop star. As it turns out, Britney Jean is a streamlined approximation of 2011's Femme Fatale, which itself attempted to re-create the producer-driven magic of 2007's Blackout, the album that seems destined to be the apex and turning point of Spears' career. Dr. Luke, the main producer behind Femme Fatale's two big hits ("Till the World Ends" and "Hold It Against Me"), is absent, as is her longtime collaborator Max Martin, who worked on those two Dr. Luke-produced hits. In their place is, the Black Eyed Peas leader who happened to be responsible for Femme Fatale's "Big Fat Bass." sports producer credits on seven of the ten songs on Britney Jean and is listed as executive producer, responsible for shaping the sound and direction of the album. Often, this means Britney seems to be playing a role created just for her, a situation not unfamiliar to Spears. The best moments arrive when she's forced to the front: she's the focus on the Katy Perry co-written and Diplo-produced "Passenger," the purest pop moment on the record that finds a counterpart in the album's best ballad, "Perfume"; her bizarre vocal affectations invigorate "Work Bitch" (it's hard to resist her faux British phrasing) and are mildly memorable on the Jamie Lynn Spears duet "Chillin' with You." Elsewhere,, sometimes assisted by David Guetta, puts Britney through Euro-disco paces as she competes with synthesizers and bass; William Orbit works a similar territory but achieves a melancholy grace on the album opener, "Alien." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.91) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Britney's back in the game....Britney remains the queen who out-bangs, out-booms, out-bizarres them all."
Entertainment Weekly (p.81) - "[The album] happily indulges the fantasies of endorphin-seeking EDM fans." -- Grade: B
Billboard - "'Passenger,' BRITNEY JEAN's second-half standout, finds the singer ruminating on romantic trust while delivering an empowering vocal performance over Diplo's guitar-driven production."
