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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll admit, I have her debut. I'll admit, I'll probably buy this one. Her latest single isn't all that bad. But a review is NOT supposed to be blinding adoration for it just because it's Britney. Has anyone listented to '...One More Time' and then listented to '...I Did it Again'? Am I the only one who hears the lack of originality? These songs were cut out of the same mold. I like most of her songs, they have a good beat to them. But it won't be her average singing voice that will sell this album. It will be adoring fans and the album's infectious beat. To those of you who think she has the best voice of anyone; listen to Christina Agiulera. That girl can belt out a tune like Mariah Carey.
this album is awsome and i luv you britney
Britney`s catchy beats are good. She has improved a lot. She is the best pop act and the hottest teen singer. Britney will probably be the only one to not be a one hit wonder.
This is a great CD
I waited so long for her new cd. This one is better than the first one. I loved it soo much. It is really great. You should deifinetly get this cd and her first one so that you have your "Britney Spears" collection built up.
Britney made a great album this time. I have to admit this album is better thatn her first. I especially like the 'Oops! I Did It Again' song. It reminds me of many things I have gone through with my boyfriend. I wish her the best of luck an dmost of all I hope every album she comes out with is as good as her first two.
I do enjoy pop music. A total *Nsync fan. I did enjoy the beat to Britney's song ...Baby One More Time. I do think this album is the same as the last!! The beats are indeed catchy, but i would not go out to buy this cd. It is trendy. I think all her songs on 'Oops..' sound exactly the same and there is not much diversity there. Her voice is not exactly a true inspiring one, but the beats i would say are catchy.
This is the best yet from Britney spears. It shows how she has matured.
I think the cd was great all the songs are good.Especially ''Lucky!''
I was surprised that I liked this CD. Britney has a lot of good songs on this CD, and some really good dance songs. I would recommend this CD to anyone who likes Pop music. Also this CD also shows how Britney has grown as a artist, and this CD is a lot better than her first.
This is an amazing CD!!!Britney is amazing!! I love all the songs on the album.But favorites are Oops..I Did It Aagin because its really cool and has a great beat to it!! I like Lucky because it shows money and fame doesn't make happiness. My other favorite is Don't Let Me The Last to Know beacause well I don't no why but I just do
I LOVE HER NEW CD SO MUCH!!!!!I THINK SHE DESERVES 5 STARS FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is definately the best CD I own. And let me tell you somrthing, I have over 500 CD's. There isn't a bad song on this CD. I used to dislike Britney Spears until my dad bought me this CD as a gift. So for all you people out there that don't have this CD, go and get it now!
Outstanding performance by Britney Spears!Unlike any other!
I want to tell the world brit's the coolest! Her album is wonderful and better than I ever thought would be. I hope she makes a new album very soon. I ve made my own Britney book and I've got 8 posters on my wall!
i bought this cd a month ago and i still can't stop listening to it! and everyone who criticize it, YOU ARE SOOO WRONG!! britney spears is a very talented artist and works very hard at her career-now that doesn't deserve criticism, does it???
Amazing. Simply a down to earth story of a girl who gets her big break. 'OOPS I DID IT AGAIN' is a classic Cinderella tale of how Spears makes it in the ultra-competitive world of pop-music. A definite good read.
The song Oops I did it again is all most like a pun. Becaue ' oops I did it agian' sounds just like Babby one more time with drifferent lyrics. This is deffently a Sophmore album. I liked the BABBY ONE MORE TIME CD Better.
this is totally the best! i loved all the song 'cept one kiss. that song stunk. britney really rox!!!!!!!!!!
The songs on this album are off the hook! I've had the album for over a year now, and I still can't stop listening to it! Britney has really matured on this album! I can't wait for her to show us what she's going to give us next. It's going to be great. OIDIA is the best CD ever!
Britney Spears' latest CD is by far her best! All the songs are great!!! This is a must have for all Brit fans. The only thing I wishes was that it was an Enhance CD like her first.
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!
Britney Spears Oops I did again and other songs are the best songs in the world. And all her other songs are excellent!!!!!!!! The best!!! This something worth buying!!!!
