Music to Strip By is exactly what it sounds like. It features a clutch of hits generally applicable to the theme, like "I'm a Slave 4 U" and "Bootylicious." Problem is, this budget comp does its own versions of these hits, setting a vocalist named "Eclipse" with canned approximations of the songs' respective instrumentation. Eclipse is a capable enough singer -- she sounds exactly like Britney, though that speaks more to Ms. Spears' talent than her own. But no one likes a bad cover version, to strip to or otherwise, and the material here is missing too much of the originals' zing to really make an impression.
