Ooops, she's done it again. We guess Britney Spears really wasn't kidding when she once cooed "I'm not that innocent."

Overview

Ooops, she's done it again. We guess Britney Spears really wasn't kidding when she once cooed "I'm not that innocent." Since her rise to stardom in the late '90s, the Kentwood, Louisiana native has transformed from a crush-worthy teen idol to a sexy dance-pop diva and more recently to a divorcee, wayward Mom, and all around tabloid train wreck. Miss Spears' poor judgment aside, the pop tart still knows how to make a hit, exemplified by the success of Blackout's rump shaking lead single, "Gimme More."

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone
With a VIP list of puppet masters including Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Bloodshy, she's all vox-tweaked and ready to bring back the stellar heavy-breathers of her youth, from the Berlin-style New Wave disco of "Heaven on Earth" to the stadium-stomping "Ooh Ooh Baby." Melissa Maerz 1/2
Entertainment Weekly - Margeaux Watson
...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 (''I'm a Slave 4 U,'' ''Toxic''). [B+]
Billboard - Kerri Mason
The music ranges from shockingly minimal—"Piece of Me" and "Radar" have the synth fugues and smudgy bass of current underground electro and little else—to novelty pop.
Daily News - Jim Farber
The 12-cut disk features wall-to-wall electro-fueled club cuts. There's not a ballad in the bunch. The synth-dance smash single "Gimme More" tips off the rest.
