Britney Spears - My Prerogative: Greatest Hits

From the epic masochism of "...One More Time" to the decadence of "Toxic", The Britney Spears Story has shaped up as a teensploitation fairy tale scripted by Aaron Spelling, Judy Garland and Madonna Ciccone. The soundtrack works best when charged with turbo-choruses and forged in the crucible of Scandinavian ultra-pop— even the contrived spectacle of "Me Against The Music" wasn't enough to salvage the leaden Princefunk chosen to signify maturity. But if squibby Bobby Brown covers are what adulthood has to offer, Britney may be in need of a script doctor if she wants a second act.
