Circus Album: Critics Reviews
Critics and fans with Britney Spears tickets are going crazy for Britney Spears' Circus album, which has been met with many positive reviews. Here is what some of the critics have said about Britney Spears' Circus:
Joan Anderman, Boston Globe:
- "This is Britney's friendliest album since 2001's self-titled project: a smorgasbord of club tracks, ballads, and chill-out cuts that screams - in its own judicious, temperate fashion - crisis control."
- A seasoned cast of collaborators including Danja, Bloodshy & Avant, Guy Sigsworth, and Max Martin ensures that Spears's sixth album hits all the proper sonic touchstones."
- "The fistful of dance tunes are fashionably stern, saddled with ominous strut and anonymous throb. But Britney is a palpable presence here, a flesh-and-blood singer."
- "Trading in neither factory-assembled carnality nor emotional posturing, "Unusual You" and "Blur" aren't likely to scale the charts, or even to be released as singles. But they may be the best songs Britney has made, and they're certainly the most interesting tracks to appear on a Britney Spears album."

Tracy Garraud, Vibe:
- ""Womanizer," pours right from the vessel of 2004's Grammy-award-winning "Toxic," bouncing Spears across addictive electro pop patterns just south of annoying and into euphoria."
- "The alluringly simmered and Danja-produced "Blur" could easily hook on to the end of 2003's "Early Morning," while "Kill the Lights" finds Spears' engulfed in her synthesized comfort zone, parading in techno fun."
- "Yet, what seems to point best to Circus' charm is an abstinence from the sloshed vocals and production tyranny of Blackout."
- "Although some artists may benefit from a new state of mind, Circus attests that Spears is best at just being her old self."

Dave DeSylvia, Sputnikmusic:
- "Musically, [Circus] harks back to the simplicity and (sometimes) innocence of her early records. It is by no means a teenybopper record, but the impetus is clearly there with the re-introduction of Max Martin, the man behind '[Hit Me] Baby One More Time,' and his onetime cohort Dr. Luke Gottwald."
- "While the electronic overtones persist, it's the most straightforward pop-rock record she's put out in years, with impish power pop romps like 'If U Seek Amy' and 'Lace And Leather' sitting pretty alongside club bangers 'Womanizer' and 'Kill The Lights.'"
- "Pound for pound, Circus rivals ...Baby One More Time and Oops... I Did It Again for top-class pop songs, but unlike those albums it is burdened by virtually no filler."
- "[...] Circus is a top-rate pop album that, with a little bit of justice, will be afforded the same sort of longevity as her brilliant early singles."

Caryn Ganz, Rolling Stone:
- ""Toxic" producers Bloodshy & Avant hit pay dirt again with the melodic, glowing "Unusual You.""
- "The Max Martin-produced "If U Seek Amy" (say it fast) is a saucy, swinging standout, and the photographer-taunting stomper "Kill the Lights" recalls the synth crush of 2007's Blackout."
- "Britney's vocals on Blackout sounded phoned in, but on Circus, she put in real studio time, actually singing some slow jams."
