BRITNEY'S ALBUMS SO FAR: A gallery of a Pop Teen growing into a Pop QueenSpears has grown up, and she wants everyone to notice. "I'm not that innocent...", she belts out, and declares her independence with "don't need permission, make my own decisions" in her cover of Bobby Brown's 80's hit "My Prerogative" - one of three new songs on the Album.
And Britney really has grown up. Back in the late nineties, she was what every ambitious good girl wanted to be; she had the world at her feet. Today she is a household name. She is seen by many as the Madonna of her time, an entertainer, provocative and controversial. She has turned from a sweet voiced nymph into a moaning and groaning entertainer.
The album is all about this famous young girl finding her place in the world as a young woman. She experiments with different sounds, just as she has with life choices. She's using her music as her mouthpiece to explain what she's done... or is about to do next.
Love her or hate her, Britney is bigger then ever. But does her older work stand the test of time? Perhaps if you're a fan. But for the rest of us? Well, we've grown up too. Songs like "Crazy" and "Oops, I did it again" have reached their expiry dates.

'My Prerogative' - is an aural history of the past five years. It leaves you knowing nothing about the woman herself, but plenty about the absurd and joyous strut and fret of contemporary sound confectionery. The boring ballads are still rotten, mind ('Sometimes', 'Lucky'); but the best ones - 'Baby', 'Oops', 'Toxic', 'Slave', 'Born' - are as precision-tooled as a weapon.- Kitty Empire for The Observer
The idea of Britney releasing a greatest-hits disc after only five years in the cultural consciousness seems premature. The Rolling Stones should put out a best-of collection. Barry Manilow should. But Britney?- CNN.com
