    I got my copy tonight, I said in another post I was so so on this album but it has REALLY warmed up on me.

    I'm liking Circus, Out from under and Kill the lights alot and of course "If u seek amy" is pretty catchy..

    I think this album is a perfect mix of the Ooops I did it again era mixed with the Blackout era. I like, I like it A lot.icon_razz.gif

    Not only did I buy it, but I pre-ordered it on iTunes.

    I downloaded the album when it leaked a couple weeks ago and I liked it from the very beginning. I like basically every track on the album and I think most of them could do very well as singles, so I was surprised that most people gave it lukewarm reviews initially.

    I think even the bonus tracks are good, and usually those are shit. Phonography is great and I can't stop listening to Trouble, a song that you got if you pre-ordered it on iTunes. Amnesia, a bonus track for the European release, is also really good.

    Just gave it a little listen on iTunes. Dare I say? Not too shabby. I can see that it will definitely get lots of play in the clubs.

    I sampled it on Itunes. Wasn't really caught up by any of the tracks. I'll give it another try though see what happens. Perhaps I was expecting another I'm a Slave 4 U or Gimmie More. Didn't really hear anything that caught me like those tracks did the first time I heard them.

    I really love the cd. I listened to it once it leaked and I gotta say everytime i hear one of the new upbeat songs - im grinding and gyrating everywhere. KILL THE LIGHTS is the shiz. And Circus is great "ear candy" love it.

    Yeah I'm listening to it now and I'm thinking about Lady Gaga. Kill the lights is catchyish but Just Dance is better. Some times though these songs get way better when the video comes out. We'll see. So far I think Circus is just ok. If you haven't already bought it I wouldn't suggest rushing off to get it.

    It's definitely better than Blackout. That album was an atrocity (except for possibly "Radar," which she mercifully included a superior version of in this album). She has some hits, some good music, and some not so much.

    I'm thoroughly annoyed by Womanizer though. That song represents exactly my biggest problem about where these "Pop Princesses" are taking their music to. The background, the music itself, is too electronic. Electronic design isn't a negative thing, but it's gotten to a point where it is literally no longer music as just a jumble of incoherent sounds. Womanizer is a prime example: it's utterly, utterly tuneless.

    This is where Madonna succeeds and most of the competition fails: she manages to take things to the electronic arena and somehow still keep an incredible beat to her music. I can't stand her, honestly: she's rude and has a major superiority complex, but there is no denying that she can make incredible music. This is how she has managed to stay relevant for so long.

    I pre-ordered it on iTunes. I wasn't too crazy about it when I heard it on a Britney blog a few weeks ago, but I listened to it from beginning to end today, and loved it. The title track "Circus" is great, as is "Mannequin," "Shattered Glass," the bonus track "Trouble," and "Unusual You," which has an awesome sound and great harmonies. I've never been a huge fan of Britney's ballads, but the ones on this album are pretty good. I'm very pleased with it overall. Not as all out clubby as Blackout, but a really great, varied effort none the less. I always have, and always will, be a fan.

    P.S. I don't get why they put Radar on this album. It was already on Blackout. Did I miss something? Was it not included on some versions of that album?

    Ummmm..........did you hear Hard Candy? Not so great. I feel I wasted my money on that album personally. I mean, shit, the only way that "Give It To Me" ended up sounding good is that Paul Oakenfold remixed it, and gave it an entirely new feel.

    I'd also have to disagree that Womanizer doesn't have a coherent beat or sound. Every time I hear it, it catches me. Makes me want to dance.

    But, music is very subjective. So, we'll probably have to end up agreeing to disagree.

    It's a redone version. It's less electronic (specially her voice) and somewhat slower. It sounds hella' better too. No idea WHY she included it, but hey, I'm not complaining.

    I was more thinking along the lines of Confessions. I haven't really sat down and listened to Hard Candy though, so you might be right there (I only have heard a select few tracks, which though I liked a lot I can't judge the entire album on). I'm talking about her work in general though. She has had a long standing career for a very good reason.

    I don't know, I think womanizer is horribly boring. You're right that it's very subjective but to me, personally, it has no tune. I know Britney is capable of making good music: Toxic and Slave for You are proof of that. Those songs, specially as far as the music itself goes, are absolutely out of this world even all these years later.

    Womanizer sounds like a jumble of noises. I hear it and I picture a bunch of kids banging on trash cans and using toys as instruments. It's not music to me at all. Throw in the fact that the lyrics are simple and plain, with the fact that her voiced is overly stylized and you basically have a song that I consider to be a combination of all the worst things pop music has seen in recent years.

    Womanizer was a really bad choice for her first "hit." It doesn't do justice to the rest of her album.

    Keep in mind I'm not attacking her album overall. I think it's a really good one (one of her best ones, definitely better than her last). It's that one song in and of itself that I simply dislike because of the direction it's taking. I hope pop music steers clear of going that far with electronic sound.

    Although to be honest, I think Gaga has taken names and kicked ass more than any of the established pop celebrities have in recent years. Lady Gaga is pop music with an electronic style done properly. But that's a whole 'nother discussion.

    Maybe I'm missing it, but I don't hear the difference. I listened to them back to back, and there's nary a difference there. Oh well, I guess it's just another track, haha. Thanks for clarifying anyway.

    I work @ Best Buy and we've had the album there in our new release stock room for over a month now. I have had to look at it and look at it EVERY day I work. Finally, on my day off, I got to get it and it is amazing.

    Not going to lie, I downloaded the UK release (w/ the 'Trouble' track included) about 2 weeks ago. It is absolutely amazing. Amnesia is one of my favorites. Just kinda mad I cannot listen to Trouble or Amnesia on the CD. I even got the Deluxe version.

    I have all of her albums and this is probably my favorite. It definitely has a great flow and Phonography has to be the most inventive song I have heard in a long time.

    Britney is definitely making a come back. Most people are in denial, but I'll be there to see her in Atlanta on March 9th after 5 years of NO tours.

    Anyone else going to go see her Circus Tour?

    Heard Circus tonight in a straight bar.. that alone tells me its going to be a huge hit given the gay bars didn't even start playing it yet here as of last weekend. It's a great tune. I've currently got Out from under on repeat thou. I love that song. I hope she puts it out after Circus.
