Honestly, critical acclaim really is overrated. What tells you if an album is good or not is if it stands the test of time that's not only with the GP but also within the fan bases. 

 

Just look at the hate Katy got for Witness despite it being a great album. Likewise with Xtina when it comes to Stripped and Bionic. Critics are all heavily bias and we all know it.

This is kinda dumb because there are artists on the list whose scores would be higher if their pre-2001 albums were even listed on metacritic jj4

It's really hard to take critics seriously, especially when it comes to pop music before poptimism really started taking hold.

 

Like, y'all are really trying to tell me nearly every album in Britney's discography besides BJ is better than Stripped?  Or that Bionic and especially Lotus are on the same level?

 

Or that Homecoming, a live album made up of songs from lesser rated albums is one of the highest rated albums of ALL TIME?

 

Not to mention how some of Madonna's and Mariah's greatest works aren't even included into their average?

Unpopular opinion, but I think Stripped and Bionic are overrated in the fanbase, while Liberation and Debut are underrated. nicki4 Stripped was good at the time of release, and I did play it non-stop, but it didn't age well for me aside from the iconic singles like Dirrty, Fighter and Beautiful. Bionic, the songs on the deluxe should have been the sound of the album, songs like Prima Donna, IHB and My Girls are bland. So I do agree with Liberation being the highest rated album among the critics nicki4 But I do think Stripped and Bionic should be rated higher than Bloatus. bey4

Taylor Swift's albums are all ranked pretty similarly in the 70's, so I agree ny10 All the albums have timeless songs from them. Don't know why Debut was left out though bey4

I know. My point is that because it started on 2000, it's a horrible representation of artists critic scores if their careers predate it.

And that's fine! You can like Britney's stuff more than Christina's. I more meant it like how Stripped is held in such high regard by pop fans and pop girls too.

Tbh Stripped is fairly overrated. I enjoyed Stripped and it's very significant for Xtina and her career, but Back to Basics and Liberation feel like much more complete, cohesive albums.

Bionic is interesting and was a bit more forward thinkingt than the electropop from around the time, but it's pretty uneven as an album. I do appreciate her stepping out of her comfort zone so strongly though and intentionally restraining her vocals as much as she did there.

As for debut... Nah. It's definitely not that great. It's very very dated by now, and stuck in that late 90s teen pop (and balladeer lite) sound and is very boring nowadays. Genie in a Bottle is a big exception tho and tbh sounds fresher than most of the late 90s teen pop songs.

 

All of em are better than Flopus tho

A LOT of the older albums poorly scored would get acclaim today (see Stripped) while plenty of the highly scored newer releases would pass as poor in the 00s. motherfucking Rare has a 80 metacritic score or something. that just ain't right.

 

the recent wave of poptimism has helped new and old artists get various degrees of acclaim but comparing reviews from the 00s when pop was seen as the lowest denominator in music to some of today's reviews is pretty much pointless. the times have changed.
