How is the production generic?
Dirrty had a different production style and structure from the urban songs of the time. Beautiful was also atypical in its production as most pop ballads at the time were very mechanical with drum machines and such, while that song actually had live drums and real string sections (not just sampled block chords). Even Fighter was Christina's take on doing a rock song, and while the other divas were trying to go for alt flavored pop, she went for heavy metal flavored pop.

I do feel that the Aggz fans overrate this album. It has a criminal amount of filler with virtually the same exact themes and messages being said countless times by numerous songs. This very easily could have been a 12 track LP had she just made better choices and trimmed the album down. She always does this though, she did this with BTB and even to an extent with Bionic too. I think for the most part the singles are the best part of the album, I think I liked all the singles from this era apart from the want to be ghetto single Can't Hold Us Down.

"Because my music - especially my live stuff - is very showy, a lot of people don't respect it as art. Because I'm young, soft-spoken and nice to people, they go ahead and assume things.' 'But everything I have ever done - even my movie - I helped to write. I'm the complete opposite of a puppet.'" - Britney Spears
NOOOOOO this is a great album. I bought it the weekend after it came out and I never even heard "Dirrty" yet I just bought it because it was a new Christina album and I loved her so much when she was doing teen pop. Then I listened to the album on my computer and absolutely loved it from start to finish. The next few months this was all I listened to until Madonna released American Life. OMG I need to start a topic on that album
