Music Review: Britney Spears- Femme Fatale

Jon Moreno, Sports Editor
1. “Till The World Ends” – The second single off Britney’s seventh studio album, the song barely makes an impact for me. It’s a good-feel track meant to kick off the album on a positive note but if it wasn’t for her choice of hypnotizing instrumentals, this song would be another one in the trash can. The song vocally
does nothing for me. What else is new when it comes to Britney? 3 out of 5 Owls.
2. “Hold It Against Me” – OK, I can’t put up a front here. This song is the perfect single for Britney to claim her pop throne once again. Songs like these were meant for her. The chorus alone is enough to give this song four owls. Most people have heard it by this point and it needs no more explanation. 4 out of 5 Owls.
3. “Inside Out” – When the song started, I felt like someone was playing Super Mario Brothers behind me. Luckily, the drums kick in and the song doesn’t turn out to be as cheesy as it first seems like it is going to be. Nothing to tell the world about here but it’s a good first listen. 3 out of 5 Owls.
4. “I Wanna Go” – It shouldn’t come to a surprise
but Britney Spears really cannot sing. Without studio effects here, this song would sound like trash. I mean, it still sounds like trash but it would really have needed to be thrown out faster than that gallon of milk standing in your fridge for over three months. 1 out of 5 Owls.
5. “How I Roll” – There’s no doubt that at this point, Britney
needs studio technology to make a decent song. Yes, it’s catchy and the claps serving as a hi-hat are a nice touch, but I really don’t know what I’m listening to in this song. It’s a wannabe Black Eyed Peas-sounding song and should have been left in the vault as far as I’m concerned. 2 out of 5 Owls.
6. “(Drop Dead) Beautiful featuring Sabi – “Your body looks so sick I think I just caught the flu,” says Britney in this song that is sure to be a single eventually. It follows the same template as “Hold It Against Me” with the song-rap like verses with the beat breaking down for a somewhat epic chorus. Sabi raps an auto-tune carried verse and truly serves no purpose. 3 out of 5 Owls.
7. “Seal It With A Kiss” – I’m not the biggest pop fan out there. However, I can acknowledge a good pop song and am not afraid to give a song the credit it deserves if that’s the case. With that said, this song sucks. 2 out of 5 Owls.
8. “Big Fat Bass” featuring Will.I.Am – Yes, if you are wondering, this song has big fat bass. Will.I.Am has made a name for himself by making the most obnoxious pop songs known to man, and he continues his legacy with his work on this one. When Will.I.Am starts rapping, the already overproduced beat goes overboard and I honestly just cracked up when it did. The lyrics don’t say much, either. The bass is getting bigger? What the hell are you saying, Britney?! 2 out of 5 Owls.
9. “Trouble for Me” – Catchy? Yes. Nice smooth beat? Yes? Decent lyrics? Yes, sure. But this song is mediocre,
along with the whole album. Some people will like it though. 2 out of 5 Owls.
10. “Trip To Your Heart” – OK, the beat sounds like it’s struggling to even start. Sounds like the beat doesn’t even want the song to start because of the train wreck it’s afraid it’s going to have to play through. Surprisingly, the song is not bad. 3 out of 5 Owls.
11. “Gasoline” – This song contains an obnoxious enough chorus to be catchy. That’s Britney’s scary strength. This song is likeable based on personal preferences. This song isn’t going to be where I go when my crapped-out 2002 Altima needs a boost though.
12. “Criminal” – Interesting title. Pretty cool beat too. But then Britney starts singing and… it’s listenable. Good song. Nice subject matter too. 3 out of 5 Owls.
Overall: 2 out of 5 Owls.
