3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it July 13 2014
Format:Audio CD
Huge Britney fan but this is definitely her worst album. Where did the passion go? Maybe it doesn't help that she lipsyncs all the time. They're killing her talent. I doubt she contributes to the song writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Music With A Futuristic Slant Dec 3 2013
By marriedutopianstriver TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Britney Jean by Britney Spears showcases Britney Spear’s musical talents through a relationship and seizing life type of sound lense. I enjoyed listening to her new release from this perspective due to also liking other songs that also touched on the romance angle such as And Then We Kiss,Break The Ice, If U Seek Amy, and Gasoline. She continues on this unique angle with catchy songs such as Alien, Work, Perfume, It Should Be Easy (feat. William), Tik Tik Boom (feat. T.I.), Body Ache, And Brightest Morning Star. However, personal favorites from Britney Jean are most likely going to be as diverse as those who listen to her music (including myself). Britney Jean by Britney Spears is great for those who enjoy listening to music with elements of synth-pop, eurodance, and electronica.

4.0 out of 5 stars Britney Jean has SOME of her best work to date - track by track review Dec 3 2013
By PourHomme80 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Britney Jean, the newest album from Britney Spears is being released today, one day after her 32nd birthday. Overall this album has far fewer hits than misses but the good stuff on this album happens to be some of her best work to date. Strangely the strongest tracks weren't released as the first or second single. Unlike, Femme Fatale, this album features a fair balance between the dance tracks and the mid-tempo/ballads. While I think Britney's voice is suited for dance backdrops, she sounds surprisingly good on half of the mid-tempo tracks. The other half are clearly filler and not strong tracks. The lyrics have gotten significantly deeper than her previous albums and we are seeing a more grown-up Britney. The lack of promotion for this album is also somewhat startling. It seems like this album was merely released and used as a promotion vehicle to help kick her two year residency in Vegas which makes sense since live shows are where the money's at for artists nowadays.
If you are only going to buy a couple tracks to try the album out, then you should start with:
1. Body Ache
2. Tik Tik Boom
3. Alien
Here is a review of the tracks IN ORDER of FAVORITES:

1. "Body Ache" -- This hot electro house edm track reminds me most of "Scream & Shout," but even better because there's no will.i.am singing on it. The track is also reminiscent of 90's hi-nrg euro house. The best track on the album with her best vocals to date. RELEASE THIS NOW!
2. "Til It's Gone" -- Heavy EDM track that is hard to get out of your head and another vocal stand-out from Ms. Spears. One of her best songs ever!
3. Now That I Found You - Great EDM track with a country vibe similar in sound to that Pitbull/Kesha collaboration that's out. Beautiful lyrics, beautiful vocals. Great track! This should be on all versions of the album.
4. "Alien" -- William Orbit worked on this awesome mid-tempo opening album track with a highly infectious melody.
5. "Tik Tik Boom" (featuring T.I.) -- Super sexy lyrics against a hip-hop pop-hop backdrop with super catchy chorus to boot. Ultimately this could have been released by any of today's female singers so expect more from Britney but nonetheless its highly addicting and really needs to be considered as a single release.
6. "Work B----" -- We all know this one. While I love this track, I am not happy that it was chosen as the first single. Nonetheless the beat is hot and the video is hotter.
7. "It Should Be Easy" (featuring will.i.am) -- Another will.i.am track where he is heavily featured. Britney's vocals are heavily vocoded and there is quite a bit of attitude on this hard edm banger. This will most likely be a single since their last collaboration (Scream and Shout) did so well.
8. "Passenger" -- Katy Perry gets writing credits and Diplo gets production credits on this slower mid-tempo track.
9. Don't Cry -- She doesnt sound bad on one of the better ballads on this album. This one is a grower.
10. "Perfume" -- Sia gets writing credits for this track. I was expecting much more from a Sia collaboration and these are not my favorite Britney vocals. Shocked that this was chosen as a single release. This is sadly headed for flop status. Would like to move on from this single ASAP.
11. "Chillin' with You" (featuring Jamie Lynn) -- Awkward track on an overall great album. Clearly, shes trying to help promote her sister with this filler track. Also, her voice is so manipulated on this track, it never sounds like Britney. Wish there was a version without the sister.
12. "Brightest Morning"/"Hold On Tight" -- Not impressed with any of these slow jam fillers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected or wanted, but it's OK. Dec 5 2013
By AdvancdPredatr3 - Published on Amazon.com
It's too much EDM for a Britney Spears album. There is really nothing personal about it, it is an attempt to show a softer side (at times) and frankly, I don't care for it. Britney Spears is pop, not EDM, and it shows, especially when half of the songs of the album is pure synths and heavy bass. I thought that Femme Fatale was getting to a point where there was too much EDM, but there is absolutely no comparison. I do like some of the tracks and the EDM is fine at times. I do like "Tick Tick Boom", I like the heaviness of the beat and I can rock to it. But this feels like a lack of effort by the Britney Spears team, it feels forced and was just thrown together (which seems to be a trend about Britney Spears these days.) I really wanted Britney to come out with a POP album, and I don't even care about her having fixed vocals for the most part as long as it isn't extremely visible.

This is certainly not her best work, and that is because will.i.am EP'd the album. Will.i.am is not that good, and he defecated all over this album with his simple synth rhythms that were not needed nor wanted. Blackout-Femme Fatale were club bangers because they weren't just emphasized synths that will.i.am spent 5 minutes on the computer. It would also be nicer if Britney actually promoted her album and PERFORMED some of her songs to get people interested, there has not been a single performance of Work B*tch and her interviews are boring and repetitive, it certainly doesn't get me interested in this album.

Nonetheless, I do like some of the tracks on this album. Alien is interesting, not gonna lie, and alot of the EDM tracks are worth a listen, but it gets repetitive...quickly. Perfume was good for a day, Til It's Gone & Body Ache are ok, Chillin' With You is not a Britney Spears track (plain and simple), It Should Be Easy is atrocious (ft. will.i.am of course) it almost sounds like will.i.am ft. Britney. I do not feel connected to a single track on this album to the level I did with the last 3 albums and that is disappointing, but that didn't stop me from listening and jamming to this album.

I would honestly recommend giving it a listen and judge for yourself. I personally feel like this is a weak attempt with a lack of effort and really crappy producers (ergo will.i.am). But that doesn't mean that there are some decent tracks that I would like to hear in a club or blast in my car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine & fluid album Dec 23 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed this album. Despite what some reviews say, this does seem more personal than any of her other albums, and the music seems more finished. It feels like she put genuine effort into each piece, which makes the entire album feel like a complete and fluid work.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT! Jan. 29 2014
By Patrick C. Dalton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is true to it's roots and I am very pleased. I wish others would give it a chance because it is truly fantastic. I believe that the Deluxe edition is the one to buy, the 4 bonus songs are incredible and I cannot get enough. In her 8 album releases I would say this is the most under apprieciated but the one that should be bought. If you were considering it, BUY IT. I love this album!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Britney needs a major reimaging... July 1 2014
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This album comes off as a bit of a misguided mess, to say the least. Starting with the albums title "Britney Jean" how many times can one release an album with ones name as the title. Hence 2001's "Britney". You are so out of ideas that you have to resort to just tacking on your middle name to an album title you had 12 years prior??... Second, the lack of imagination and artistry of album covers these days has become somewhat of a joke. Britney along with most other "Artist" these days suffer from this. I don't feel that the album cover could come off more unmotivated, boring, uninviting, or simply just plain vanilla. This cover could not have taken more than five minutes and photoshop to come up with, so simple a 5 year old could have done it, but were supposed to accept it as cover "art"...
Now for the track by track review.

1. Alien-This album opener is a nice mid-tempo, breezy track. There are some areas of the song where I feel Britney struggles vocally but overall the song is nice. 3/5

2. Work Bitch-I like this track because it takes chances with its production and is quit unique. The lyrics on the other hand take a back seat here, this is a very juvenile song for Britney at this point in her career. This was the first mistake from this era in choosing this as the lead single for the album as this song was destined to get little to no radio play based on the way the word bitch was being used. 3.5/5

3.Perfume-A standout solid track that lets Britney showcase her vocal ability. This is a nice mid-tempo song that has me hitting repeat!! This is the second and final single from the album, but unfortunately failed to make an impact on the charts I feel because of the casual fan being turned off from the poor choice of the first single. Had this been(and I think it should have been) chosen as the first single I feel this album would have played out differently 5/5

4.It Should Be Easy(Feat:Will.I.Am)-Trying to recapture the success that they shared with "scream and Shout" Britney and Will.I.Am reteam on this track but unfortunately it fails miserably to find its way and falls rather flat resulting in nothing more than a forgettable album filler. 2/5

5.Tik Tik Boom-This is a fun club banger with great production and hard beats, while the song does not offer much lyrically it succeeds doing what its meant to do..make you wanna dance. 4/5

6.Body Ache-Another hard hitting club banger, this is the hidden gem of the album. Amazing production and strong vocals from Britney this should have been a no brainer second single. This song would have offered up great remixes for the club circuit.5/5

7.Til It's Gone-Another fun dance track with hard beats and a crazy sick breakdown, potentially would have been a wise choice for a 3rd single 5/5

8.Passenger-This track is an abysmal mess from beginning to end. such a weak track to follow the previous three. Britney's voice is horrendous on here and the entire song at most times comes off as a unfinished demo very hard to get through this song. 1/5

9.Chillin' with you(Feat: Jamie Lynn Spears)-This breeze ballad is a cute little song done with her sister, and while I find this song a guilty pleasure I don't feel it should have made the final cut of the album. This truly should have been on Jamie Lynn's album and not Britney's because it is quit clear the sole purpose of this track is to introduce Jamie in the music industry.3.5/5

10.Don't Cry-A fantastic song and could have been a strong single. A ballad very reminiscent of the ballads from her "Oops, I did it again" album. This is the Britney the world fell in love with. 5/5

11.Brightest Morning Star-This is where the album confused me and made me feel the album was directionless on an album that started out with a song called "Work Bitch" I was shocked to find a lullaby ballad focused toward her two boys. To me this trips up a lot of the production of this album which makes it seem a little all over the place. But not in a good way. 2.5/5

12.Hold On Tight-A great track, just a simple ballad with strong old school Britney vocals 5/5

13.Now that I found you-A fun fun bubbly song and a good way to end the album on a high note. 4/5

I would not call this project a complete disaster, it has it ups and downs and is not her strongest offering My advise to Britney on her next go round get better song writers, find a more mature sound and pay attention to the little details.
