  1. 9.0 |   God Is In The TV

  10. 6.0 |   The FT

    Its songs mark an improvement on the woeful Britney Jean, a medley of sharply produced beats through which Spears’ vocals — one moment breathy, the next artificially soulful — flow with clever digital processing

    Undoubtedly a better effort than its predecessor
