The reviews are in for “Britney Jean”!
• “It’s her most disappointing release yet, a snoozefest of shallow mid-tempos and limp club tracks that chase trends rather than invent them.”
• “It’s just straightforward pop music, and that’s just fine.”
• “Like Wile E. Coyote realizing too late that he’s walked off a cliff and is standing on thin air, “Britney Jean,” the new studio album from Britney Spears, is marked with so many sleights of hand, dubious lyrics and bombastic but boringly simple melodies that the too-rare levitation of its better moments seems an animation trick.”
• “A total letdown,” says the AP. The AP!
