What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Britney's premature "Greatest Hits" album is relentlessly suggestive, predictable, and instantly forgettable. You can use this CD to broach the subject of sex with your kids, or use it to prop up the short leg of the sofa.

What's the story?

Britney's GREATEST HITS: MY PREROGATIVE album will be a must for diehard fans, with its slick packaging, bonus CD of remixed hits, and insert packed with photos. Everyone else should spend their money and time on something else. After only five years on the pop star scene, it might seem a bit premature for this young performer to have a "greatest hits" album at all, especially when all of her hits sound so similar. Madonna's cameo on "Me Against the Music" is reprised, of course, and Pharrell Williams provides a welcome vocal on "Boys." The songs themselves are absolutely and instantly forgettable.

Is it any good?

Britney's simpering, processed vocals and forced sexuality end up sounding sterile and tedious; not at all sexy. The musicianship and production are fine, deftly codependent in their efforts to cover for weak lead vocals.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why so many young girls look to Spears as an example. And why does she feel the need to be so sexually provocative?
