Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times shared her thoughts as Britney Spears wraps up her House of Blues bite-sized shows. “All Spears needs is to let herself do what comes naturally: be a product, an image, an archetype,” Powers suggested. “If she tries to be confessional or assert herself as an artist, she’s risking judgment on conventional artistic terms, and she’ll lose. … So dance, Britney. Create the most spectacular multimedia show money can buy. Tell your story on a mythic level, with dozens of dancers, massive flashing screens, and bodies flying through the air. Back up this extravaganza with the highest-quality sounds those producers can fabricate, with your voice not exactly at the center, but an alluring element wafting over hot beats and ingenius samples.”
