...Baby One More Time

Album Summary

...Baby One More Time is the debut studio album by American pop singer Britney Spears. It was released on January 12, 1999, through Jive Records. It is Spears' most successful album with sales of over 25 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time, as well as the best-selling debut album by a female artist. ...Baby One More Time has been cited as a hallmark for pop music and is praised for the revival of the teen pop genre. The album received two nominations at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards, for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Spears had been a child performer on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club during 1993–1994, and was looking to expand her career as a teen singer. After being turned away by several record companies, Spears signed with Jive for a multi-album deal in 1997. Spears traveled to Sweden to collaborate with producers Max Martin and Rami Yacoub, who had been writing songs with producer Denniz Pop and others. Their collaboration created a pop, dance-pop, and teen pop record, with Spears later saying that she felt excited when she heard it and knew it was going to be a hit record. The album was completed in June 1998. At the time of its release, ...Baby One More Time garnered mixed reviews from music critics, with many praising its commercial appeal but deeming it silly and premature. Retrospectively, it has been hailed for its major impact on pop culture, citing it as one of the most influential pop records of all time. The album was a massive global success, topping the charts in five countries and reaching the top ten in 17 territories. Spears became the fifth artist under the age of 18 to top the Billboard 200. It received worldwide certifications, including a 14× platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for shipments of over 14 million copies in the US. According to Nielsen SoundScan, the album has sold 10.7 million copies, with additional 1.6 million sold at BMG Music Clubs.

danny_devito_nope.gif Fave track - well, I was gonna say "The Beat Goes On" but it has a damn advert baked into the end of it. I'd give this one star but I don't want to dilute the purity of my contempt for Kid Rock 😠

2.5 - This record shoots its wad early, within the first three tracks. After that, songs churn out on a conveyor belt, each vaguely similar in their glossy sheen but with slightly varied deformities. I like how one critic sums it all up: "a collection of either competent pop songs underwhelmingly executed or underwhelmingly written pop songs competently executed." This is the music you hear as you accompany your tween daughter to purchase her first thong.

Un très bon album pop. Pour quelqu’un qui n’aime pas beaucoup le pop, j’ai adoré les performances de vocaux de Britney, et les beats très pop culture, malgré que certains soit peu inspiré. Il y a aussi des très bon featuring.

Not as bad as I was expecting tbf -- although maybe it's just the nostalgia because most of the singles were still pretty banging while the b-sides didn't really do anything for me. The cover of The Beat Goes On was pretty bizarre, overall it was mostly fine 62/100 gecs

ahaha on mon dieu que ca me rappelle des souvenirs. ....baby one more time, Crazy et Sometimes etaient la trame sonore de l'été 1999. Des hits, cependant, ce type de pop vieilli mal pour moi, surtout pour un album de 1h00... Je donne un 3.5 en souvenir de notre jeunesse et parce que j'était très fan de Oups I did it again

Pocs haguessin dit quan va sortir aquest disc que seria amb la maduresa quan Britney faria els seus millors discos, amb 'In the Zone' i 'Blackout'. En la seva estrena, un gran tema titular, clàssic del pop de finals de segle, i poc més. Bubblegum pop consistent però que no aporta gaire, a més d'una versió innecessària. La revolució va venir més per la seva imatge i carisma que per les cançons aquí incloses

What is this doing in this list? I don’t mind a decent pop album, but this cheesy nonsense!

I have to admit, when I saw this pop up, I was happy to have a happy little throwback album to listen to for the day. Baby One More Time and You Drive Me Crazy are both bops, Sometimes was sort of blah, but Soda Pop is the song that broke me. I had tried skipping to the next song, but it didn’t erase Soda Pop from my brain. I had to abandon the experiment partway through when I saw there was still 12 tracks ahead of me.
