Britney Spears - Blackout

Well, what do you know? Throughout the reported mess and chaos that her life (and herself) are supposed to be at the moment, she's managed to put out the best moment in her career yet. You can argue that it's all thanks to the producers (and Danja, Bloodshy and Avant, Sean Garrett, The Neptunes, etc, did make a wonderful job creating the most groundbreaking beats, addictive synth-lines and sick vocal harmonies for this album) and that her presence sounds almost anonymous (on the other hand, I personally like the cool effect of that). But then again, at least you have to give her credit for making herself surrounded by the right people at the right moment. And then, who can complain when you have stellar numbers like "Gimme More" (yes, the single), "Piece Of Me", "Get Naked (I Got A Plan)", "Radar" or, most of all, the sick dubstep rhythms of "Freakshow" and the Moroder-infected-pop-hallucination that is "Heaven On Earth". (8,5/10)
