A.V. Club

Every song counts as markedly progressive and strange, from "Get Naked (I Got A Plan)" (which sounds like intergalactic R&B filtered through The Cure's Pornography) to "Freakshow," which gets by on little more than serpentine snaps, wub-wub bass, and Britney sounding synthetic and irresistibly at home.

Poetry it's not. Still, there is something delightfully escapist about Blackout, a perfectly serviceable dance album abundant in the kind of bouncy electro elements that buttressed her hottest hits.

That's what we call Pop album. A milestone in the history of pop music and the United States. After all, is the pop princess.

PC Music is running the Pop game right now, dropping excellent Pop music with an experimental edge on instrumentation, inspired by the metallic sonic palettes of Electronic music genres like IDM, Electroclash and Electro House. But please, give to Ms. Britney Spears her flowers too. This album was a blueprint in terms of performance, production and aesthetics.

If I could find a word to describe this album, that would be: psychedelic. Spears tried to give us another sexy album, but she couldn´t do it like in its predecessor "In The Zone". Maybe it´s the eletropop vibe mixed with a big amount of unnecessary autotune, that just doesn´t click. "Gimme More" is definitely the edge of this project, bringing us Britney at her best.
