In a year when divas like Gaga, Katy and Rihanna continued to dominate the musical landscape, the O.G. pop star certainly had her work cut out for her. And given Britney’s recent personal struggles, it’s a minor miracle she even managed to drag her ass to a studio. But not only is Femme Fatale a welcome comeback, it’s the best full-length album in this singles-oriented artist’s 12-year music career. Buzzing, of-the-moment pleasures from Dr. Luke and Max Martin abound: the panty-peeler “How I Roll” might be the most avant-garde thing to blast from a strip club, while “Hold It Against Me” features a shockingly great detour into dubstep. Sure, Adele may have had a voice big enough to flatten a small town, but Brit’s apocalyptic anthem “Till the World Ends” (co-written by Ke$ha) was a nuclear bomb of a pop gem. If it’s all going to hell, might as well dance.
