America's Pop Princess is back. Britney Spears Glory is her ninth studio album. It's definitely more mature and surprisingly more polished and sophisticated. The tracks are all good, and while some are album filler, most are exceptional and five can easily become big hits. When I look at an album and half of the tracks are single worthy, it means thumbs up for sure. Spears fans will be gushing with delight, this is her best album since “Femme Fatale.” There's no mistake here, what is evident is the extra care and involvement Britney pours into this album. The extra attention to detail is noticed and that is why this album is so good.
The best tracks here are Make Me, Just Luv Me, Slumber Party, Just Like Me, Love Me Down, and Hard To Forget Ya. This is an album that grows on you, after a few plays you know what I mean. It's after a few plays that more of the layers of the glitzy/pop production shines through and is in perfect harmony with the distinctive vocals of America's Pop Princess.
Britney Spears has said that she wanted to do something different with her new album and, take a left turn, and really explore some new things. Britney and her team have worked on and off with this new album for the past two years. She said after all the work put into this project that the album is at a level where she is really happy with the finished results.
"It took a lot of time, but I think we brought it to a level where I was really, really happy with what I had. It's cool, it's really different. I think this is probably the most hip-hop album. Not most—there are like two or three songs that go in the direction of more urban that I've wanted to do for a long time now, and I just haven't really done that...It's a really good record, and I'm very, very proud of it."
This is the kind of album you can put on replay and cycle it over and over without losing interest. Great pop music, whether you like it or not, is quite infectious, and this is an example of that. It will grow on you for sure, and albums like that are worth every cent spent!
It's one of the best albums out so far this year and the perfect fit for the end of summer.
