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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One year ago, she released her first new album titled ...Baby One More Time which sold more than 12 million copies. One year later, Britney has done it again. The self-titled cd 'Oops!...I Did It Again' by Britney Spears is flying off shelves. In one week, this album sold more than 1.5 million copies knocking NSync off the #1 spot. According to the billboard top 100, britney is #2 (as of 6/27/00). On Rick Dee's Weekly Top 40, Britney is #1. (as of 6/27/00). Britney is just incredible. This album is the best ever. From her hit single Oops!...I Did It Again to her song Dear Diary, Britney is performing all over the world now. Her next single will be Lucky so watch for it on MTV..!!!
This album has got to be the best or at least, one of the best albums out there! I didn't like her debut that much, but I see a mass improvement! Britney Rules!!!
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.
This is a very good CD. I really reccomend it. The first song is very good and so are the rest of them.
I think the album title is amazing and it sounds great! Opps.....You Did It Again Britney with the great voice of yours!
I have over 100 CD's and this CD is the only thing I listen to everyday. It's the greatest! I used to hate Britney, but now I LOVE HER! I can't wait for her new album to come out!
The songs on this album are much more mature than on her first cd.On the other hand,her singing has not improved much.Her voice at times sounds nasal or mechanical. All in all its a pretty good sophmore album.
she sure did it again.i'm a huge fan of britney and I think she sure did it again the song is the best song i ever herd,britney if u read this all i want to tell you that you're awesome i have you're new and old cd i been a fan since u came out i have posters of u all over my room in my computer i have wallpapers of u and even screensaver,i have ur video time out with britney,my parents think im going crazy,lol well i think you're the best out there and i can always relate to you're music keep doin it again=)
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 every one should buy this tape!!!!THE BEST!!!!!!!
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.
The only way to describe this album is to say that it takes me to heaven every time I listen to it - The unique talents of Britney's voice exhillirate the listener through various emotions. This sound is more mature than 'Baby one more time' - Britney's music grows with me and I will continue to enjoy it - give it a try.
I think the cd was great all the songs are good.Especially ''Lucky!''
i have written two reviews that say how i really feel, but they have not been published, so i will have to tone it down a bit. It is ridiculious that people say that britney has matured since it is impossible to mature because she has nothing to do with her music. the fact that this album sells is proof that music standards are at an all time low. Also, whats up with butchering timeless rock classics?(stones fans you know what i'm talking about)
i say that this cd.... is so da bomb!it is so kewl!i like almost all of the songs and i will never get tired of it.it was worth my times listening to it and i know it will be worth yours too.oh yeah.......i luv britney iam her #1 fan!well everyone,u have to get britney's new cd.it is the best and you won't regret it.
This is a great CD
this album obviously had more work put into it than the last. there is more of a mixture of different tempos. she can pull off fast songs and the slow ballads. this girl really has a knack for singing. her taste has also grown. she is a great, all-around person!
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!
I LOVE BRITNEY SPEARS BECAUSE SHE'S THE BEST AND SHE'S IN STYLE.
This is the best album yet that teen pop queen Britney Spears has released. Her vocal power and songs have gottenbeter and everyone should have this album!
This album is so good how can it not be it's like the best it's perfect. It's such a mature album with great beats. There is no doubt about it, it's the best album ever. It's so great I just cant put it into words. It's just how I feel, and it feels great!
this cd is cool but the whole cd isn't that great. there are like 5 songs that suck on this cd. i recommend buying this cd though, because there are some awesome songs!
