  1. "Before the Goodbye" was so ahead of its time. Too bad it didn't make the album. Would make a great transition between B and ITZ. They did all they could with the album. They released so many singles. They didn't even bother milking OIDIA when it had at least 2 more potential hits on it. 

     

    The album was her peak. She was basically everywhere. It still outsold many current popstars whole discographies. We really shouldn't look for holes in something that was basically perfection. We were given the classic pop singles in Overprotected EU and INAGNYAW, the new sound with IAS4U and Boys, and some rock in ILRNR. Obviously, the whole album was single worthy. But was there a need for more singles? No.

  2. I wish we knew.

    Usually albums for the US and Europe don't differ much, but Jive did it their way. 

    Too bad they used the standard b-sides as bonus tracks in Japan. Would have been amazing if they used some other unreleased tracks.

    Also, "Deep In My Heart", "Girl In The Mirror" and "When I Found You" are wonderful tracks, it's inconsiderate to leave them off the albums.

    I am happy about one thing, that they changed the cover of BOMT in Europe.

    Wait what is this?

    These are 2 CDs of Michelle Bell demos that were registered on January 4th, 2004 in Library of Congress. As you can see "Hey hey hey" was also a part of those sessions. It appears that all of these songs were meant for Britney or were recorded by her. 

    I don't think she did much recording for "The Original Doll". I assume she wanted to use a lot of songs that she demo'ed for In The Zone but were left off the album because they didn't fit the sound. She did some recording for MP:GH so that is probably where the demo of Mona Lisa is from. 

    She didn't even bother using a new recording for BITM-TR, instead, they used an ITZ reject.

  4. things are falling into place.... Liobrary of Congress has whole 2 dozens of songs registered from these sessions:

     

    The songs Take Off, Money Love And Happiness and Like I'm Fallin' were recorded in 2003 and registered in US Library of Congress on Janury 4, 2004. Which makes the rejects from the "IN THE ZONE" album. It should be noted. They were registered by Michelle Bell, and included on two 12-track demo CDs that possibly include more Britney songs.

  5. Billie was a local act.

    Jive had a lot of experience with Samantha Fox in late 1980s as they managed to have a lot of success with her worldwide, but also Fox covered a lot of different music styles, she did pop, dance, house, r'n'b. Let's not forget the influence of her video "Hurt me, hurt me" on "Boys". Fox was Jive's biggest female act and they learned a lot on her and that influenced their future female acts. What they did wrong with Fox was done right with Britney.

  6. This is a 1999 pirate CD, the remix was online years ago, it's fanmade, like an extended version of BOMT. "New Down" is a mystery. There was also another CD similar to that that included a remix of Deep In My Heart and Sometimes.

     

    I saw this CD for sale recenty in Poland, but can't bother to waste 10 dollars.

  7. I think the writer of the song is giving himself way too much praise. I assume that it may have been wanted by Celine's husband as they usually but did campaign for songs for each album and it would fit onto her A New Day album or perhaps her Miracle album. But Celine demands the writers to give her publishing otherwise she won't record a song. I doubt Britney would record it in 2001. It didn't suit her sound. Perhaps they assumed that Jive wanted it for Britney but they had a different artist planned to record it.

  8. The thing is, all of her albums since 2001 are over-produced to some extent. Her vocals been especially over-produced since then and it got worse over time. For the first two albums they bothered to actually give her time to record and actually used those raw-ish tracks. Then in 2001 her voice became sounding thinner and they probably paid more attention to getting ger to sound a certain way. Blackout was the first time they used demo vocals and simply edited and tuned them to sound "perfect" which made her sound robotic and over-processed. It is only on Glory that she somehow managed to sound human but at the same time when you listen to all the multitracks, her vocals are also very over-processed with lots of reverb and layers.

  9. Back in 2000 it was considered "s shame" to be a male and a Britney fan. She was like the Spice Girls - "not for teenagers", 'not cool" up until 2003 happened.

    She was in Bravo, Popcorn and other teen mags weekly. I think she was one of their selling points. Posters were a thing. Teens these days won't know the devotion it took to buy all the mags and collect clippings etc.

    There was some cover-up when pictures of her drunk and smoking cigs appeared in press back in late 2000.

    "Sometimes" was basically released a year after "BOMT" was served to radios. Now that's an impact of a first single.
