Oops!...I Did It Againby Britney Spears
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.

she sounds constipated when she sings.
amazing album by britney spears!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You'll get bored off it soon, most songs you'll hear on the radio anyways.
The new single is one of the best I ever heard! Her voice really comes through and shows that she's grown a lot in a year and a half. Great work Britney! I can't wait for the CD!
I think this song really rules!I love the music video.Oops I did it again i played with your heart and lost in the game oh baby,baby.oops you think i'm in love i was sent from above.I'm not that inacentYayayayaya
Really Good!!!!! I heard it on the radio and liked it so much that went to MTV and watched all day to see it!
The song will definetly make it to the top of the charts!!! She looks hot in the video, as always. She is so much better than any other female artist out there. Can't wait for the new album!!! Way to go BRITNEY!!!!!
This is the best song yet! I went to her concert and she also sang another great song off her new album. She CAN sing really good! I suggest that all people who bought her first album, buy this one. And for those of you who didnt buy the first one, definitely buy the new one because it is so awesome, and youll be in for a treat.
wow! another chart breaking single, there's no Oops about it. it is a smash hit.
Who know Britney could put out an even better tape? This guy right here is her #1 fan. She is so talented. I listen to her all the time while I work.
I LOVE HER NEW SONG! SHE WILL DEFINETALY SELL MORE CD'S THAN NSYNC!!!! I ALSO THINK THAT SHE IS BETTER THAN CHRISTINA AGUILERA!!!!! SO BRITNEY KEEP ON DOING YOUR JOB CUASE YOUR DOING GREAT!! AND ALL YOU OUT THERE WHO LIKE HER VOTE FOR HER ON TRL AND BUY HER CD!!!! ~~MIGUEL!!!!
Oops...I Did It Again is Britney Spears' best song/album she has released.
I think Britney spears has a very powerful talent. She is the best and she's the coolest. I can't wait until her new C.d comes out!!! U go britney!!!
i think every one should buy this tape!!!!THE BEST!!!!!!!
This Cd is awsome! she really has grown up these past years and it shows! the music has tight beats and is way better than anything Christina Aquelera has ever done!! all i have got to say is ..oops she did it again to my heart!!
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!
As a mother of two young girls 5and 8 we went to both of her Michigan concerts 9got to meet and greet her in Grand Rapids and take a picture she is a GREAT singer she sang two of the new songs. She is a great down to earth young women who I am proud my kids love her music because, so does MOM Keep up the GREAT job Britney
Her new tracks give her a new edge yet the same old pop. You can listen to the new stuff or the reliable 'Britney Pop' Its cool to see and hear the changes from 'Baby one more time.'
This CD is the best CD she has done....better than the first! GO britney! Her songs are so catchey! WONDERFUL CD!!!!!! Especaily the song 'stronger'. Go buy it!
britney is so cool ! her songs rule .
I LOVE HER NEW CD SO MUCH!!!!!I THINK SHE DESERVES 5 STARS FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Britney just seems to keep amazing everyone with her changes!This song and album definitly shows a more mature side of Britney Spears!!!!!!!!!
I think the album title is amazing and it sounds great! Opps.....You Did It Again Britney with the great voice of yours!
I think the combination of her voice and body makes her the greatest pop singer of the present. She has a promising future and should go far!
