Britney Spears: The Singles Collection (Jive)

Mike Diver, bbc.co.uk, November 2009

IT MIGHT SEEM rather odd that this new collection features fewer tracks than 2004's greatest hits collection, My Prerogative. But though trimmer, this set represents the best disc yet from arguably the biggest pop artist of the past decade, packing more hits (and bigger sales figures) into the equation than any other festive-period best-of. Put simply, this is the definitive Britney album.

Total word count of piece: 397
