The release of Britney Spears's seventh album, Circus, coincides with the pop star's 27th birthday. The lead single, "Womanizer," has already created a frenzy amongst Britney fanatics and its popularity underscores the singer's continued reign as one of the queens of pop. For her latest effort, Britney has enlisted a stellar group of established producers/writers that include Danja, Max Martin, Bloodshy & Avant, and Guy Sigsworth (Madonna, Bjork).

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - Caryn Ganz
The clubby, adventurous pop on her sixth album — her first since getting committed and losing custody of her kids — would have made a fine follow-up to 2003's In the Zone.
...the singer does double duty as a dance diva and brokenhearted balladeer.

I consider myself a "modern" Britney Spears fan. I don't care for her older stuff, and really started listening to her after Blackout was released. I really thought Blackout was a good CD. It was edgy and dark. There are a couple things that aren't so great about Circus. First, there is really no flow to the CD. It goes from a pop vibe to an 80s vibe to a club vibe, etc. Its not nearly as sleek or ambitious as Blackout. It feels almost like a Britney Spears mixed tape, rather than an album with a concept. Second, I read that she recorded over thirty songs and I heard one called "Trouble" (which was an iTunes bonus) which definitely should have made it on to this CD. I don't understand why "Radar" is being forced on the listener again, when it was on Blackout. She should have left it off the CD and put another song on the amazing "Trouble", which was released as an iTunes bonus. There had to have been better songs than the ridiculous "If You Seek Amy" and the misfit song "Lace and Leather" Stand out songs are definitely "Womanizer" and "Mannequin". But the song "Kill the Lights" definitely puts the rest of the album to shame. She should have stuck to a more urban feel for Circus. It's an ok CD, but not easy to listen to all the way through. She also should have thought twice about the way over-Photshopped pictures that were used for the cover and the liner notes.

I have always been a Britney fan. I'm almost 30, and her music is my guilty pleasure. I thought Blackout was her best album ever, and it's a shame her personal life unfolded the way it did, it really took away from that album. Circus, despite it's mediocre reviews, is a great album though, although not onto the level of Blackout. Spears music is never going to be deeply touching or moving, but her music is pure escapism. You can't help but put on Circus and tap your fingers or feet. My favorite songs on the album are "Circus" - not about the tabloids, as many assume, or her rollercoaster year, but of her being an entertainer. "Kill The Lights" is sure to be a single, and is really right behind "Toxic" in my book as her best ever. "Blur" is a song that many people in their 20's, and even 30's, can relate to, whether they are club goers or barhoppers.

Spears can carry a ballad, but that is the one thing this album lacks. She always has one killer ballad, but there is nothing that comes close to "Everytime" from In The Zone.

Overall, a great album. No message songs, just good pure fun. And in this times, isn't that what we need from the entertainment industry?

I have never been a huge Britney fan, but when I heard Womanizer on the radio I decided to try out the album. I absolutely love it! Each song is a little different, unlike Blackout where they were all very dance-club like. If you are a Twilight fan, try Unusual You. It would be great for the next soundtrack. Each song has a different twist and I can honestly say that there is not one song that I don't like. If you loved Brit in the past or are not sure if you'll like her now, I highly recommend this album. It just makes you want to dance in the car at times and relax at times. It's great!

Britney Spears has DEFINITELY made a major comeback. This girl has so many great songs on her new album 'Circus'. These delightul hits make you want to get up and dance. The energy of the songs are original and the way they are put together are phenomenal. I have never liked so many songs on one CD. You know how you buy a CD and then you only end up liking 3 or 4 songs? Well not with Britney. You'll end up humming these catchy tunes on your way to work, in the office, working out, or where ever you go. There is NO WAY you can forget the legendary Ms. Britney. And these aren't the teeny bopper, pop-princess tunes either. These are hard-core, empowering, I-Am-Woman songs. You will catch people of all genders and people of all ages bobbing their heads as they induldged in some of the best songs EVER! I am so excited that Britney Spears released a new album.

Bought for 20 yr old daughter but Mom and Daughter listen to it all the time. It's upbeat and great to have in the background as we talk!

This is a great cd. In my opinion it's the best since Britney which came out in 2001. The tracks are upbeat and great to dance to. Out of the songs which haven't been radio played or made into a music video I love Shattered Glass and Kill the Lights.
