This is not a hard thing for me to do: to say that I am wrong.
I’ve been dissing Britney Spears, the single “Me Against The Music,” and predicting that “In The Zone” will flop. I just listened to MTV’s “The Leak,” (NO, I STILL DON’T HAVE THE CD, as others claim they already have it, when it is yet to be released on 18 November), and I must say I was really blown away! I’m not gonna review it track by track. You have to listen to the tracks yourself. They’re all good (including MATM, which I must say has grown on me with time, ESPECIALLY the remixed version!). I have to say, each song is well-produced, catchy, and, most importantly, HAS melody.
We still don’t know if it will be as successful, commercially, as Britney’s previous CDs, but who cares? The point is: Britney has come up with a good CD with good songs that the radio can play, we can listen to and dance to and have fun with. It’s the music that matters. Also, with this CD, Britney has established herself, finally, as the New Madonna that we’ve all been waiting for and that she is here to stay.
Sorry, Britney, and I still love you.
