When Britney Spears perkily popped onto MTV last year with the well-choreographed clip for the infectious "...Baby One More Time," no one guessed (besides Jive Records' savvy marketing team) that the Louisiana teen would start a fashion trend with Catholic school girl pleats and knee-highs, or more important, that Spears would spawn a slew of young, flaxen-haired starlets such as fellow Mouseketeer Christina Aguilera, the giggly Mandy Moore, and the virtuous Jessica Simpson. Now as the challenges to her throne mount, the original queen of teen is back with Oops!...I Did It Again. And as the title predicts, Spears has done it again. Using the same winning combination as ...Baby One More Time -- thin yet pleasing vocals cooing over catchy pop songs heavy on bubbling synth hooks and punctuated bass-lines -- the cutey turned hottie has another bona fide hit album on her hands. Just as the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync re-merged with a more mature sound on their sophomore efforts, so has Spears. Thanks to pop über-producer Max Martin (Celine Dion, Backstreet Boys), Spears shines on the tongue-in-cheek lead single, the triumphant "Stonger," and the rousing, get-lost declaration "Don't Go Knockin' on My Door." Kudos also go to country diva Shania Twain, who cowrote the polished ballad "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know," and to Spears, who co-wrote the confessional "Dear Diary." While die-hard Rolling Stones fans may flinch at her almost guitar-less verison of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," Spears' breathy delivery gives the song a pulse-raising sense of urgency. As a whole, Ooops! tells the story of a young woman coming to terms with the peaks and valleys of being Miss Popular -- from fame to boys to breaking hearts. But from all indications, Spears will continue her ascent.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Given the phenomenal success of Britney Spears' debut, ...Baby One More Time, it should come as no surprise that its sequel offers more of the same. After all, she gives away the plot with the ingenious title of her second album, Oops!...I Did It Again, essentially admitting that the record is more of the same. It has the same combination of sweetly sentimental ballads and endearingly gaudy dance-pop that made One More Time. Fortunately, she and her production team not only have a stronger overall set of songs this time, but they also occasionally get carried away with the same bewildering magpie aesthetic that made the first album's "Sodapop" -- a combination of bubblegum, urban soul, and raga -- a gonzo teen pop classic. It doesn't happen all that often -- the clenched-funk revision of the Stones' deathless "Satisfaction" is the most obvious example -- but it helps give the album character apart from the well-crafted dance-pop and ballads that serve as its heart. In the end, it's what makes this an entertaining, satisfying listen.

No just kidding! This Album is the best! I know it hasn't been released yet, but I previwed the tracks, and they are wonderful! You have the great R&B feels of 'Can't Make You Love Me', 'One Kiss From You', 'Stronger', and What U See Is What U Get'. Plus, the great ballads, 'Where Are You Now', 'When Your Eyes Say It','Dear Diary', and of course, 'Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know'. AND, the great sounds of 'Don't Go Knockin' On My Door', and the remake of the Rolling Stones' hit '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'! But 'Lucky', a song about being a star, and 'Oops!...I Did It Again', are my favorites! There are also three 'unreleased' tracks for the U.S. that will be available on IMPORTS, 'Girl in the Mirror', 'Heart', and 'You Got It All'. The 'Girl in The Mirror', is a very touching song, and I love it. It is a very slow ballad, and Britney really shows her vocal talents in it! Not that she already didn't, but that song is exceptional! 'Heart', and 'You Got It All', are also very wonderful songs'! This cd is truly Britney at her best, and I suggest if you want a copy, you should pre-order it, because this album is HOT!

I really enjoyed her new song. Just because of this Oops I did it again song, I have turned myself into a Brittney fan. She is definately more talented than Christina Aguilera. I hear she has a great attitude towards people. I think she is so adorable and I love her dance moves!
