I'm not sure if any album I've ever heard deserved 5 stars, but I would say this album is pretty close. I'm not a Britney "fan" per se - I'm close to 40 years old, actually. But there were a couple of songs I heard on the radio that I really liked that lead me to buy this album. After having listened to it numerous times, I can honestly say I don't think there is one song on here that I don't like. I don't know where this album ended up on the music charts, but I would have to imagine it rated pretty highly. I would def recommend this album, especially if you are already a fan. And if you're not, you WILL be after you listen to it.
