So Scream And Shout is simply Will.i.am by numbers, but the Gimme More sample and British-ney sounding the happiest and most engaging she’s been in a long time makes this quite special, in a ludicrous way.
This might be a total snooze-fest but it serves as a good reminder that Britney needs to do more ballads. And I’m not talking faux-ballads like Criminal and Trip To Your Heart by the way, I’m talking PROPER BALLADS. Everytime 2012* please!
*Although I’m guessing she won’t release any music in 2012. Maybe not even for a few years now until some sort of massive Greatest Hits anniversary type thing.
