Britney Spears has done it again with her newest album entitled “Glory”. The album released encompasses the singer’s iconic vocal style while giving listeners a wide variety of music to enjoy. The 17 track project will not disappoint fans as it represents both a new ideas and the old Spears that her original listeners fell in love with. In many ways it is the perfect pop comeback album.
Album highlights include the opening track “Invitation” . The song provides a solid start to the rest of the project. The instrumental arrangement shows a mixture of perfect production and composition. The atmospheric quality of the arrangement allow the listener to clearly focus in on the lyrics.
The impressive word choice and musical syncopation remains at a constant high. Glory also lends itself as a pedestal for spears to show off an incredible vocal range. This is shown most notably the track “Clumsy” in which the lyrics build tension until a nod at Spear’s original hit “Oops I Did It Again” appears at the end of the crescendo. Another surprise for listeners came during the third track when Britney is joined in “Make Me” by rapper G-Eazy. Together the duo provide a dynamic performance that follows seamlessly with not just the rest of the song, but also the rest of the album. The collaboration was done perfectly leaving no expectations unmet. Overall a very developed, unique, polished project.
The question is not whether or not this album delivered on all of the hype it was given. That can be answered simply with a resounding yes. The question is whether or not the live show concert aspect of this music will be on the same level. What the album does leave way for is an extremely entertaining live show. If the performance quality matches the delivery in this album, then concert goers will certainly be in for a treat.
