Four up-beat tracks from Britney Spears' upcoming CD which is tentatively called 'Piece of Me', are given reviews by People.com.
Still on the arguably biggest buzz this year, Britney Spears has tentatively named her comeback album 'Piece of Me' after a track which may as well be the second single. A number of her unmastered tracks have been sent to several online sites for them to review.
Chuck Arnold of People.com sees an overall '80s vibe in her album which is due November 13. Title track 'Piece of Me' features "Spears' heavily processed voice" that is produced by Bloodshy and Avant.
The lyrics go from "I'm Mrs. American dream/ Since I was 17" to "I'm Mrs. Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous/ I'm Mrs. 'Oh my God, that Britney's shameless'/ I'm Mrs. 'Extra, extra, this just in' / I'm Mrs. 'She's too fat, now she's too thin'."
Many of the tracks are uptempo, including the Timbaland and DanjaHandz-produced 'Break the Ice' that contains her trademark breathy vocals.
Another one is 'Radar' that has the "Rihanna- esque" factor and "chirpy delivery to a bouncy beat".
A club-banger 'Heaven on Earth' written by Kara DioGuardi has the "throbbing throwback to 'I Feel Love'-era Donna Summer."
First single 'Gimme More', which Britney has premiered on air on August 30 and performed at 2007 MTV Video Music Awards, has claimed its chart position. The song positioned itself at #85 in Billboard Hot 100 and straight to #25 in Hot 100 Airplay.
