She's pulling out all the stops, with talented electro-pop music makers on board, such as Sia, Black Eyed Peas' Will.i.am and French house DJ David Guetta.
Tracks featuring guest vocalists are impressive. It Should Be Easy - which blends Spears' beloved pop with Will.i.am's signature sound - opens with Spears' stylishly auto-tuned voice. The momentum builds slowly, and eventually the electronic beats take over the chorus.
Tik Tik Boom, featuring rapper T.I., boasts a slower-paced, yet more rhythmic vibe, with Spears' singing distinctly reminiscent of her Baby One More Time days.
But the rest of the record sounds average, presumably because of Spears's lack of experience in making the sort of music house DJs specialise in. An absence of energy is clear.
But credit where it's due: Spears isn't scared to try new things, and this is far from unlistenable.
