4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good album...awesome album cover!
Vocally, I think she has matured since her first album. It's less "poppy" than her last album. But considering the current "pop" market, I think everyone is trying sound less poppy and a little more "hip hop" (like Britney and Justin collaborated with rappers). This album contains a good balance between up-tempo songs and ballads.

I especially like track 18 "The Voice Within" - it's powerful, it showcases her voice, and most importantly, she didn't "overdo" it with all those improvised "yeah yeah...ahh ahh" stuff. I was disappointed with track 2 "Can't Hold Us Down". This track features Lil' Kim but I think the song is missing a catchy melody or riff or something. It was a waste to use Lil' Kim in this track, especially after "Lady Marmalade" became such a hit - Lil' Kim and Christina are indeed a cool duo. Unfortunately the song didn't do them justice. Track 9 "Impossible" was a collaboration with Alicia Keys. It was a signature Alicia Keys song - in a minor key, with piano/drums/bass and heavy backup vocals - And tell you the truth, I rather hear Alicia singing this track. I think Christina overdid it just a little too much.

There are tracks on this album where I think Christina is exploring and experimenting with different sounds...Take for instance Track 12 "Make Over" reminds me a little of Pink's new sound, leaning a little toward alternative rock. More jazzy sounding tracks include Track 10 "Underappreciated" and Track 15 "Get Mine, Get Yours"...the arrangement are different from a "typical" R&B track.

"Dirrty" is a good one to party to...it's my favorite on the album. I don't know about the video...but then again the track is named "Dirrty"...so I guess the video was appropriate.

Her image - is she just trying to be a bad girl, or do you think this is indeed the real Christina? Who knows?

Overall it's a pretty good album. I would only recommend it if you're a Christina fan.

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful lyrics, powerful voice, christina made it again

This is one of the best cd's I have ever heard and by far her best cd.....If you get one cd this you this must be the one

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and empowering
It took her a while but she came back in full force. All the tracks are great and they show that she really grew up. Through her songs, you understand that she grew into a woman who's comfortable in her skin, sexuality, and just her place in the world. You hear her tears in "I'm Okay", singing about her abusive father and you feel her love for herself in "Beautiful" a song that encourages self love and determination in believing in all that you are. Every woman should own this album. You won't be wasting your time. She kicks Britney's ass with this.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE ULTIMATE!!
Girlfriend is all over this CD. She is bringing the house down BIG TIME. Miss Christina, you are such a role model, and I love everything you do. Just run and get this album now!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars They're Finally Back
After a four year absense, BSB return with the single "Incomplete." Do not expect any drastic changes from their usual style. The guys have always stayed true to their pop roots and this is no exception although i do think that the instrumentals are better. Another striking thing about this single is AJ Mclean has never sounded better! This is highly recommnded for pop fans and be on the look out for the album "Never Gone" on June 14th.

*And to all those who figured the single would flop, it has made it to #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #6 on the Pop 100....Not too shabby and a definite comeback hit for the guys!

5-0 out of 5 stars The return of BSB
THE BACKSTREET BOYS ARE BACK FOR GOOD THIS TIME AND THEY DIDN'T ALLOW THE CRITICS TEAR THEM DOWN.I HAVE BEEN A FAN SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THEIR CAREERS AND I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM.I'LL BE ONE OF THE FIRST IN LINES ON THE DAY OF RELEASE.BUT FOR NOW THIS CD SINGLE IS THE MUST HAVE FOR ANY LONG TIME BSB FAN WAITING FOR THE CD.INCOMPELETE IS A MUST HAVE FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE THE OLD SCHOOL ROCK, R&B STYLE OF MUSIC.THIS SINGLE IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF WHAT THE REST OF THE ALBUM WILL BE LIKE.CAN'T WAIT, KTBSPA.

Common wisdom holds that debut albums have an autobiographical slant, so it's hard to believe that Justin Timberlake's first non-'N Sync outing doesn't purloin much of its subject matter from the singer's breakup with Britney Spears. Half the songs are about the abrupt severing of a romance and the singer's rather hard-hearted stance. Sure, he may have been the wronged party, but that doesn't excuse the inflexible emotional posture revealed in "Cry Me a River," "Never Again," and the sniping "Last Night." But Timberlake apparently thinks it does, since he christened his record Justified. He also seems to enjoy boasting about the swinging single life, with many of the songs here almost gratuitously lascivious. Asides like "I could think of a couple positions for you" from "Right for Me" and "Better have you naked by the end of this song" from "Rock Your Body" will catapult the singer right off Radio Disney. But Timberlake shines when he moonwalks into more adult terrain, turning his back on the innocent dance pop that put 'N Sync on the charts. With the help of hip-hop producers Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, Timbaland, and P. Diddy, Timberlake has turned out a remarkably cohesive and sophisticated slice of club-friendly R&B. --Jaan Uhelszki ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Justified, Indeed!!!
Bravo, Justin!!! What a wonderful CD!!! Justin has really proven that 1) he has talent that we've yet to fully see and appreciate, 2) he knows what producers to best display that talent and 3)he's genuinely loves and respects the soul/dance music of the 70s. I've never been an 'N SYNC fan but first single LIKE I LOVE YOU was simply too irresistible to ignore. The drums and the guitars, courtesy of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, are pulsating and hypnotic. But that song isn't the only gem on the album. ROCK YOUR BODY, also by the Neptunes, recalls the Michael Jackson/Off the Wall era of the late '70s. The cohesive musical bond between Justin and the Neptunes recalls the successful pairing of Janet Jackson and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. The songs are autobiographical, fresh, confident, sexy, and you wonder how they ever thought of combining all those pleasantly complicated and eclectic sounds.

Justin also connects well with producers The Underdogs on the memorable ballad STILL ON MY BRAIN. It also recalls the Michael Jackson of old (SHE'S OUT OF MY LIFE, LADY OF MY LIFE) but by the end of the song, Justin's emotional cooing makes it abundantly clear the song is his. Another memorable ballad is the album closer NEVER AGAIN, produced by master balladeer Brian McKnight. On these songs, Justin's vocals are beautiful, vulnerable, raw and very effective. The ballads have traces of Stevie Wonder (circa early 70s). During this period, Stevie was also ascending into young manhood when he released those musical gems. Timbaland produces five songs on this set, including top five hit CRY ME A RIVER, and gives Justin further street cred.

But, though many producers contributed to this CD, it's quite a cohesive collection and it is ALL Justin, who co-wrote every track and provides some impressive vocal arrangments, melodies and harmonies. And it's also a clear indication that this isn't the last we've heard of him.

PLEASE STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS AWFUL ALBUM WHICH IS BAD BEYOND DESCRIPTION.HORRIBLE OVERRATED ALBUMS LIKE THIS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DECLINE OF THE RECORDING INDUSTRY.I DONT SEE EVEN A PIN DROP SIZE WORTH OF TALENT IN THIS AWFUL GUY WHO WAS AN UNJUST WINNER OF THE GRAMMY AWARD.DISPOSE THIS LOUSY CD OFF IMMEDIATELY AND GET ANY ALBUM FROM FLEETWOOD MAC INSTEAD.

1-0 out of 5 stars he's been listening to too many pink floyd cd's
justified is one of the most overrated and overhyped albums of this millenium and i wonder under what criterion did this clown get his grammy which he did not deserve at all.i see that he has been trying to copy roger waters on almost every song failing miserably in every attempt.avoid this crapfest of a cd and get the delicate sound of thunder from pink floyd instead.

1-0 out of 5 stars What? He only won two grammies
The only reason he won those grammies was because first he was overhyped and second was put into a category with older singers like Johnny Cash and Peter Zevon, people who don't appeal to the typical demographic and audience these days. He had it easy. He didnt deserve to win. And since when did he win 5 grammies...The reviewer below me must be what 11 or 12 year old teenybopper.

3-0 out of 5 stars All the hype can't justify this album
I expected this album to be something huge because of all the hype he got but I was disappointed. Some of the songs were really good but some of them were a waste of production time and money. Some of his tracks are filled with great beat and some are just a joke. He's a great artist but severely overrated. He won 5 grammys for his talent but his next album should be better. ...

OhmygodtheBackstreetBoysrule!!!!!! OK, with that out of the way, let's review The Hits--Chapter One, which is one-stop shopping for the hunky pop group's three American albums--their 1997self-titled debut, 1999'sMillennium, and 2000'sBlack & Blue. The first disc really shines with "As Long as You Love Me," "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)," and "All I Have to Give," capturing the Backstreet Boys' essence: sunny pop under the influence of blue-eyed soul. "I Want It That Way," from the second album, is an undeniable classic, while "The Call" has a deliciously frenzied sexual urgency and a strong, danceable beat. But the other tracks are uneven with the oddball fan-appreciation anthem "Larger Than Life" surrounded by somber, predictable ballads. The new single, "Drowning," is same-old same-old: lazy moaning over a drum machine. The Hits--Chapter One might be an optimistic name for this '90s retrospective. The future is cloudy for chapter two. --Courtney Kemp ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pleasant set
The Backstreet Boys were the first of the boy bands of the late '90s/early 2000s to make it big. Their catalog consists of only three previous albums, so it does seem a big premature to have a hits collection out, but apparently the third release didn't perform to expectations, so a hits set was rush released with only one new song.

Even if it seems like a last gasp for success, this CD is a great summation of the group's work up to this point. It provides proof that the group wasn't just the best of their breed (boy bands, that is), but that their best moments transcend the the recent bugglegum pop music boom.

"I Want It That Way," "As Long As You Love Me," and "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)," are lovely, timeless pop ballads, featuring great vocal performances. The dance numbers, like "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" and "Larger Than Life," are clearly a product of modern music, but offer infectious rhythms that even early Bandstanders can dance to.

If most of the rest of the singles on this 13-track collection aren't quite as good as those afforementioned tunes (the midtempo "Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely" also certainly ranks with the Boys' best), they nevertheless are well-crafted. That the new single "Drowning" is the weakest track on the set may not bode well for the future however. But regardless of what the future holds for this group, this retrospective provides a strong look at what was popular in pop music around the turn of the century.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Boys Hit the Big Time
I'm not a huge fan of pop music (you can gather that by reading some of my other reviews), but I have to admit, there's something very likeable about the Backstreet Boys. Their music offers a wide variety of melodies and styles, from dance to pop to R & B with a bit of techno thrown in for effect. "The Hits--Chapter One" is an ecclectic mix of music, illustrating exactly what makes the Backstreet Boys work in today's glob of music. The disc encompasses the Boys' three multi-platinum albums, so all the essential songs are here, from 1998's dance tune "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" to the smash "I Want It That Way." Also included are the newer, lesser known tunes "More Than That" and "Drowning."

While this album is basically a greatest-songs package, the disc flows fairly evenly with its pure melodies and smooth harmonizations. Brian, Nick, Kevin, A.J., and Howie's voices blend together flawlessly on the sweet-not-sappy- "All I Have To Give." The five-some dive shamelessly into the rock/techno world on the dance hit "Larger Than Life" and explore the subject of infedelity on the epic song "The Call." However, the album gets bogged down with the slow, ho-hum ballads "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely," "I'll Never Break Your Heart," "Shape of My Heart," and "More Than That." If one can get over those slow moments, than this is a great disc to pop in the player when chilling out. With the various boy bands clogging the airways, it will be interesting what the Backstreet Boys decide to do in chapter two of their career.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Hits
Has all the hits including the smash "I Want It That Way".

5-0 out of 5 stars I love Backstreet Boys and I wont it that way!
I just got this cd for my birthday last year and I loved it when I played I wont it that way on my birthday and It's is my favorite song by Backstreet Boys! I recomened this CD for any Backstreet Boys fan in the world!

1-0 out of 5 stars The thing to turn you off the radio for good
In the late 1990s, as the loud, tuneless alternative rock sound of such awful groups as Nirvana, Silverchair, the Presidents Of the USA etc. weakened, teen pop came to take its place.

Whilst as I was back then I would certainly have appreciated a softer sound controlling the airwaves than the hyperamplified grunge sound that in those days defined the word "alternative" for me, the fact is that the Backstreet Boys scarcely did anything that opposed the grunge sound in a new and serious way. Rather their music was basically a watered-down version of the sound with which such artists as Michael and Janet Jackson, Madonna and Simply Red had been having hits for a great many years.

There was some sort of familiarity to the sound of the Backstreet Boys, but at best it can only be described as annoying. All any listener is likely to remember is the ultra-catchy choruses with which almost every song they recorded (and had played on commercial radio) ended: there can never be any substance to songs that were written for what was/is by any standards an artificially promoted group.

Scarcely any better than most "hip" people will tell you, the Backstreet Boys were/are in no way anything worthwhile for a moment. More than that, the Backstreet Boys unlike any other group before them will have those listening to commercial radio questioning whether it is the best option even if they hate what is played on the noncommercial stations. This is the one thing notable about them, indeed. ... Read more

Multimedia phenomenon Brandy rose to superstardom in the '90s while only in her mid-teens, and was one of the decade's most successful new talents. Her string of smashes soared to the heights of the R&B and pop charts, as did her top-selling albums. The young recording artist and actress also reaped major acclaim in the television world with her hit sitcom Moesha, and the starring role in Disney's beloved TV adaptation of Cinderella. ...

When you think about purchasing a "Greatest Hits" or "Best Of" CD, usually you may get some of the hits but not all, then you have to still search around and make up your own "hits" cd with all your favorite tracks.Well that is not the case with this package.This is one of the few compilations that give you the full picture and the complete story.Brandy has released several solid efforts over the past ten years and the best of the best is represented here in all her hits.They even included
"Brokenhearted" (w/ Wanya From Boyz II Men) "Sittin Up In My Room" "Rock With You" and the remix to "I Wanna Be Down" (w/ Queen Latifah, MC LYTE, & Yo Yo)This is one cd where you won't have to press the skip button even once.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's about time for a Greatest Hits CD
Brandy has been great from the start, from "I Wanna Be Down" to "Talk About Our Love". I've been saying all along that her record company should do a greatest hits CD of her career. It should have been called "A Decade of Brandy (1994-2004)

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing greatest hits album...5+++stars
When I first found out that Brandy was releasing a greatest hits album last year I was sort of nervous seeing that she only had 4 albums...but I love her and I knew I had to get it...I couldn't have been happier.

For their hard-core under-18 fans, of course, the Backstreet Boys are all that, and a bag of chips and free soda to boot. Millennium, the follow-up to the quintet's umpteen-million-selling debut, offers more reasons why so many of the rest of us have found a place for them in our hearts. The Boys' ultrapackaged look and up-to-date production underscore the quality of their best tracks; only a churl could deny that "I Want It That Way" is one fine radio-aimed declaration of love, or that "Larger Than Life" makes the most of its Daft Punk sample and double-edged acknowledgment of Backstreet followers' loyalty. And who can resist an album-closer like "The Perfect Fan," Brian Littrell's ode to his mom? --Rickey Wright ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Step Up From The Last One.
This CD had finally completed the Backstreet Boys' real music fame (check out Rolling Stone issue 813 May 27th, 1999). It has established them as soulful musicians and heartfelt writers (They either wrote or helped write 4+ songs on the album). They are no longer in class with "cute, pop, boy-band" although they are having trouble shedding their skin. I f they begin to include more playing of their musical instruments, they should be able to leave the stereotype behind. This album encorporates more hard sounds, a throwback to "Everybody", with a sprinkling of electric guitar ("Larger Than Life"). Of course there's the traditional bubble-gum sound of a boy-band found in "I Want It That Way", but it also includes the slow harmonious lament of best friends and lovers lost. "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely" tells the story of Max Martin losing one of his best friends and co-writer, Denniz PoP. After hearing that story, I was no longer able to listen to that song, and think about what is useually brought to mind when men sing - girls (listen to the song, you'll know what I mean). This song, along with the others, shows the hardships that the Backstreet Boys have had to overcome, and what great people they work with. This album is a significant improvement over their self-titled album, as that one was elementary, leaving room for growth, and this one branched out and truly showed their skill. One song especially close to my heart (because I have such a wonderful, supporting mother), "The Perfect Fan" was written mostly by Brian T. Littrell. He's blessed with a truly amazing talent; too bad for the first album that it didn't show then. Overall this album is very well put together and the musicians are at a high point. As I said earlier, this album branches out from the typical sound and reaches men and women of all ages. I congratulate the Backstreet Boys on their wonderful album and huge success.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet Music From Sweet Guys
I did not think this was crap. I thought it contained some of the most beatiful melodies, lyrics, and vocal talent I have ever heard. Do not think I am some crazed teen in love with them ever since they entered the ring. I do listen to Limp Bizkit and Korn, and I also happen to like that arena of music too. This provides a wonderful light in the dark. No, I did not buy this CD because they're cute, I've liked there music since "Quit Playin' Games...", and this is them at their best. They express deep emotions with "Show Me the Meaning...", no matter what people say. Brian and Kevin's songs on this are so sweet and romantic. Brian co-wrote "Larger Than Life", not a song about them, but a song about their undying love for their fans. Kevin plays the piano in "Back To Your Heart". Brian also wrote the songs "The One" and the "Perfect Fan", a song that he wrote about his mother. They have been through so much as a group, it's unbelievable they could produce something so heartfelt without swearing once as other bands think customary. So, say what you will about the BSB, but bear in mind that millions upon millions of people around the world adore their vocal undertones. This CD has won me over to a group I could've only identified before as "the talented ones with the five guys and the goatees".

5-0 out of 5 stars DIE HARD
As a die hard BSB fan, I highly recommend this album to anyone who wants a combination of fun and sweet songs ("The Perfect Fan"). I will always recommend music from the BSB. They rock!!

5-0 out of 5 stars i love it
i love it! with "i want it that way" as the 2nd track... it just so perfect

1-0 out of 5 stars Thank God their 15 minutes are over.
Back in the 60s when boy bands actually played instruments, wrote songs, and resisted the urge to dance like fruitcakes, it wasn't really an insult to be labelled a "Boy Band."
Today, however, they're nothing more than a testement to how much money certain record companies can squeeze out of unassuming 12-year olds who's only crime is that they haven't discovered Led Zeppelin yet. ... Read more

Like fellow former Mickey Mouse clubber Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera kicks off her debut album with a teen-lust nugget--in this case, the No. 1 single "Genie in a Bottle"--that the rest of the disc can't possibly live up to. Aguilera has a strong voice, but patterns herself after iffy role models such as Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Aside from "Genie," most of this music is straight from the cookie cutter, like the less than successfully sultry "When You Put Your Hands on Me" and the Mulan ballad showpiece "Reflection." In chart terms, though, there'll be no stopping her--at least for a while.--Rickey Wright ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars GOOD VOICE, GOOD UP-TEMPOS, BUT.......
I HAVE TO ADMIT, CHRISTINA AGUILERA HAS A VOICE, AND PERSONALLY, I FIND HER MUCH MORE TALENTED THAN SPEARS. HOWEVER, AS SOON AS I STARTED LISTENING TO HER CD, I FOUND THAT THE ONLY REALLY, REALLY GOOD SONGS IN THE TRACK WERE "GENIE..." AND "WHAT A GIRL WANTS". OTHER SEMI-GREAT SONGS INCLUDE "SO EMOTIONAL", "COME ON OVER", "LOVE FOR ALL SEASONS", AND...THAT'S ABOUT IT. I BELIEVE CHRIS HAS GOT A BRIGHT, LONG FUTURE AS A FEMALE SINGER, BUT SHE NEEDS TO BRUSH UP ON THOSE SONGS. MOST ARE LONG, MONOTONOUS BALLADS OR JUST PLAIN IRRITATING R&B SONGS. NO OFFENSE CHRISTINA, BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU WROTE YOUR OWN SONGS. YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH THAT. HOWEVER, I DON'T DOUBT THAT THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO LOOK UP TO AND CHERISH AGUILERA, AND WHO COULD BLAME THEM? SO PLEASE, IF YOU'RE A TRUE CHRISTINA AGUILERA FAN, DON'T LET THIS REVIEW STOP YOU FROM BUYING HER CD OR AUDIO CASSETTE. AFTER ALL, PEOPLE HAVE VARIOUS TASTES FOR MUSIC, AND I'M JUST STATING MINE.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Variety of Pop
From Micky Mouse to Mulan to Pop Divas, this bright young star has certainly hit a high note with this recording.

Christina Aguilera's self titled debut album is full of pop songs from strong powerful ballads to upbeat sing-a-long tunes and each displaying a great deal of talent from this young artist.

1. Genie In A Bottle - The song that has introduced Christina to most of her fans across the globe, and is impossible to dislike. 4/5

2. What A Girl Wants - A brave follow-up single to 'Genie In A Bottle'. It has an R'n'B flavor to it and may take a few listenings to before you can appreciate it. 3.5/5

3. I Turn To You - This is a powerful song with a Whitney Houston sound that shows off Christina's vocal ability. A beautiful song dedicated to Christina's Mum. 4.5/5

4. So Emotional - Another R'n'B influenced song. It's one of the average tracks on the album, but becomes quite catchy. 3/5

5. Come On Over (All I Want Is You) - My personal favorite track. It's an upbeat, fun, sing-a-along to song, and is a perfect pop tune. 5/5

6. Reflection - If this song is familiar, it is because it was on the soundtrack to the animated movie 'Mulan'. Christina was just 16 when this was recorded and her voice is brilliant and perfect for this beautiful song. 5/5

7. Love For All Seasons - This song would perhaps have been better used as a b-side on a single. Vocally, again Christina does not fail but the song just fails to go anywhere. 2.5/5

8. Somebody's Somebody - This song is often criticised however I would dispute that. Great mid tempo song that will have you tapping away to in no time. 4/5

9. When You Put Your Hands On Me - Excellent pop song, but my only criticism is the synthesised sound to Christina's voice which is really unnecessary and annoying. 4.5/5

10. Blessed - Beautiful and unique song, that has to be heard. 5/5

11. Love Will Find A Way - Upbeat pop song that will make you want to sing along to it. This would have been a good bright song to end the album on. 4.5/5

12. Obvious - The only thing that saves this song is the vocal ability. Slow and boring and just does not go anywhere. 2/5

When Christina first came onto the music scene she was given the label 'The New Britney Spears'. This album does not only prove this entirely wrong, but makes it quite clear just who Christina's influences are. With a Mariah Carey / Whitney Houston influence, she has created her own unique style of music.

Christina Aguilera is a pop album, with a variety of different songs that will keep you listening to for hours. If you love pop music, then this is the ultimate female pop album.

5-0 out of 5 stars She sounded soulful on here
It amazes me how good she sounded when she recorded this record. The only complaint is that genie in a bottle was a little to poppy for me but the rest of the cd sounds like a young r&b cd. Who gives a damn if she doesn't have a lot of fast songs on the cd, everyone doesn't do the same thing on all cds. Be happy with what she has given you. If it still bothers you, go buy the import with the club remixes of her singles, the cheapest one was like 20 dollars, not too much more than this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars Is this record a genie in a bottle?
Is Christina Aguilera's debut really worth a Grammy? In my opinion, no. I'm not just saying this because I'm a huge Britney Spears fan. Vocally, all right X-tina is really good. But when comparing her debut to Britney's (who'd been on the charts with "...Baby One More Time" since 1998, Christina only in August 1999), it was Britney who should have garnered Best New Artist. I love Christina's voice...but really, folks. Britney's debut is a lot more addictive!

3-0 out of 5 stars Close but no cigar
Sorry Christina but you ain't no Britney Spears, and your debut definitely isn't close to hers either. Everybody knows you can sing but Christina Aguilera (the album) isn't nearly as addictive as Brit's. ... Read more

Two comely teenage lesbian lovers from Russia who happen to sing? That seems more like marketing masterstroke than pop music likelihood, so it's fair to question the authenticity of t.A.T.u.'s English language debut. It's impossible to know where t.A.T.u.'s talent begins and ends and just how much influence their various handlers and producer Trevor Horn had over 200 Km/h in the Wrong Lane, but it's probably a moot point to the intended demographic. Horn's background working with electro-pop dandies Pet Shop Boys and Frankie Goes to Hollywood is evident in the crisp, driving synth cushioning singers Lena Katina and Julia Volkova's gossamer vocals. Wink-nudge lyrical references to girls loving girls--presented in serviceable if phonetic English--are in evidence, though they're more coy than graphic. "All the Things She Said," a sparkly, chorus-driven rave-up, seems to make the case for sexual equality, while "Show Me Love"--which appears in regular and extended versions--is a dance floor missive aimed straight at the clubs. Best, though, is an unintentionally ironic cover of the Smiths' "How Soon Is Now." The song, a benchmark of loneliness and hopelessness, is utterly transformed into a chirpy duet which, all things considered, may be the best gimmick of all! --Kim Hughes ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE THEM TO DEATH!
I love this CD, it's because of this CD that I've decided to learn Russian. Now it's only fair to say that this CD has really only 8 tracks, track 9 & 10 are the real/Russian versions of the songs "Not Gonna Get Us" and "All The Things She Said" and track 11 is an Extended version of "Show Me Love" which is track 3 on the CD. If I had one favorite song on the CD it would have to be "MALCHIK GAY" which translated into english means "GAY BOY" but that's my only personal chanson-de-choix. I definitly recommend this CD if you like kinda-angry music, dance, and altogether great to me. Hope you enjoy it. Also if you listen to track 5 and like the theme song to "CHARMED" then you'll definitly like "HOW SOON IS NOW?".

5-0 out of 5 stars t.A.T.u. hits America
Finally t.A.T.u.'s 200KM/H in the Wrong Lane has been released in the U.S. These two girls are cute, look wonderful together as a couple and have complimentary voices. Their songs are often about young gay/lesbian love but anyone can relate to them. The first single, "All the things she said" is an incredible dance song and is just as good in Russian. The techno-dance music on this CD is ground-breaking. Their voices take a listen or two to get used to but then you'll be hooked. Their remake of the Smith's "How soon is now" is utterly compelling. Other CD highlights are the title track "Not gonna get us," "Clowns" and the bubbly "Malchik Gay". Trevor Horn does a great job in (over)production and let's hope this is just the beginning of more energetic dance music from t.A.T.u.

4-0 out of 5 stars Impressed
I must say that this album kicks butt. Not only am i impressed by the lyrics and beats, which astounded me even more on how fluent these girls are at english and russion, but the fact that these girls dont give a $hit about what other people think. One thing that puzzled me though was why Japans album got bonus tracks, but not europes or the US one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good CD
I got this CD because I liked "All the Things She Said" and it was only 7 dollars. It turned out to be pretty good. The girls may or may not be a novelty act, but if it is all just an act, it's one that works so well. Their voices sound really good together, and most of the songs are pretty good. "All the Things She Said" is good, but I also love "Not Gonna Get Us", "Show Me Love", and "How Soon Is Now". The other songs are good, but those songs really stand out to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Honestly, the Best CD I've ever heard! Utterly Amazing!
I first heard tATu in early 2003 or so. I heard their first single, "All The Things She Said" on the radio, and I loved it. Then, about a half a year later, my friend got their CD and literally just raved about how awesome and addictive it was. I really wanted to hear all their other songs, so I went out and bought it. It is utterly amazing! I thought it would be good... but not this good! I kept listening to it over and over again. It is so addicting. The pop/rock sound mixed with techno influences of each song along with the unique vocal flare of Julia Volkova and Lena Katina make it incredibly addictive. Even now, months and months later, I still listen to this album practically everyday. There is much speculation as to whether or not Julia and Lena are actually lovers in their personal lives. In my opinion, it does not matter. Speaking personally as a teenage homosexual male, these lyrics are truly an accurate and honest expression of the angst, loneliness, and depression that you go through as a homosexual person. They are expressed with genuiness and honesty that no other artist has captured before. I love how poetic and respectful the lyrics are. The fact that this is being put out there for people to buy and hear is truly powerful. There are 11 tracks, but 8 of them are original, and they are as follows:

1.Not Ganna Get Us- Truly awesome song with a techno flare. It's about running away from society with the person you love... like a fantasty song. The only bad aspect is that it can get repetative. 4/5

2.All The Things She Said- Great song! It's basically expressing the general angst of being in love and no one understands your love, and it's driving you insane. Great poetic lines, and not as repetative as track 1. 5/5

3.Show Me Love- Has a very cool russian opening where Julia and Lena are talking on the phone. I love how this album incorporates some russian into the english songs. This song is a very upbeat dance track. It's about being lonely and wanting someone to show you love. It contains my favorite lines on the CD. When expressing why you're attracted to someone they sing that it's "like a game of pick-up-sticks, played by f***in' lunatics" Also, the only hardcore cuss word on the CD. Great Song! 5/5

4.30 Minutes- Very creepy! It's a ballad. There's this creepy laughter in the background that adds a very eerie feeling, especially if you're alone. It's about making decisions. wonderful song! 5/5

5.How Soon Is Now?- a cover of the Smith's song. I've heard both. I know I might get lacerated for this, but this version is significantly better. Probably the most rock influenced track. A truly honest expression of loneliness and needing love. Arguable my favorite. 5/5

6.Clowns(Can You See Me Now?)-Very techno influenced. Probably the most poetic and metaphorical lyrics. It can have 2 interpretations in my opinion. One is how ignorant people shield themselves from what they don't understand. Or, I also interpret it as an expression of wanting the object of your love to see you and that you love them, but they're so consumed with everyone around them that they can't. Can get repetative though. 4/5

7.Malchik Gay- It means "Gay Boy". Probably the most american sounding song. It's about being in love, but the person you love is taken. Incredibly relatable. It might get annoying to some though with the repitition. But, it's arguable one of my favorites just because of the topic and lyrics. 5/5

8.Stars- Truly Captivating! The girls go back and forth from verses in english to verses of russian rap. The russian sounds so awesome. I love songs in different languages, and to also have english in it is very cool. The saxophone in it provides for a very smooth melody. It's a very slow and soothing song. It's basically just about how it shouldn't have to be this hard for homosexual people in society. Great Song! 5/5

9.Ya sashla s uma- original russian version of "All The Things She Said" It's very cool to hear it in russian and go back and forth between this and the english version. Because the girls are singing in their native language, the passion in their vocals really stands out. Very cool to listen to. 5/5

10.Nas Ne Dagonjat- original russian version of "Not Ganna Get Us" Again, very cool to listen to the russian version. It makes you want to learn russian! lol. 5/5

11.Show Me Love(Extended Version)- This is the extended version of Show Me Love. If you like the original, you'll like this. It has a different opening that's more rock oriented. Awesome! 5/5

This album is truly amazing! The lyrics are very genuine and honest, and it truly expresses a soul that is tormented by the angst, depression, and loneliness that encompasses being different. It expresses the shameful shyness that homosexual people experience in their lives. The lyrics are also written in a very illusive way to where not just homosexual people, but that everyone can relate to. Regardless of whether or not Julia and Lena are actually homosexual in their personal lives, the fact that they do express it and put it out for people to hear is awesome. I encourage you to purchase this utterly amazing and expressive album. You will not be dissapointed. It is a must have! ... Read more

Despite millions of album sales, 'N Sync are an obvious No. 2 to label mates the Backstreet Boys. Fittingly, they try harder--too hard, in fact--through most of their second non-Christmas disc, No Strings Attached. The quintet and Strings' dozen-plus producers fill these 47 minutes with bland ballads by Diane Warren and Richard Marx, mildly funky workouts like a cover of Johnny Kemp's "Just Got Paid" and the muddled "Space Cowboy," and gimmicks such as "Digital Get Down" that hardly lend credence to whatever career-longevity claims they might want to lodge. This is a guaranteed smash, but judged on the merits of its weak material and less than compelling vocal performances, No Strings Attached should be long forgotten by the time the Backstreeters' next CD arrives. --Rickey Wright ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun listening but these guy are more of balladeers
There are distinctively 2 types of music you can get in Nsync's No Strings Attached : lush, romantic ballads and fun, funky uptempo numbers.

The intense production level in this album is readily manifested in all the fast songs :

"Its Gonna Be Me" has rich, infectious beats and well-sychronised layering of sounds.

The next track "Space Cowboy", with its funky, colorful lyrics, opens with a grand, futuristic sounding intro music.

"No Strings Attached" has a wild energy in it, which "explodes" in between the verses.

With a rather sleazy intro, "Digital Getdown" is perhaps the first song from Nsync that steers away from their clean image. The song itself is extravagantly vamped up with lots of digital sythesizer effects. But the suggestive lyrics should gather pretty much attention themselves.

"Bringin' the Noise" is a party tune designed to bring up the atmosphere of the "house". However the lyrics of this song are rather lame. It's probably the weakest song in the whole album.

"I'll Be good for You" is the only track that can be classified as a mid-tempo song. It has a smooth, easy-going, R&B feel to it. Produced by Justin Timberlake, it is a commendable effort.

So far, the only weakness in the FAST songs, is perhaps the inconsistent vocals provided by JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake. It seems that the two sing MUCH better in ballads. When it comes to the fast songs, JC sometimes sounds weak (e.g. No Strings Attached), while Justin's voice sounds like, er...Britney Spears (e.g.It's Gonna Be Me). Those are things the two singers should note.

In any case, the gems in this album are really the ballads - and there are sadly only three of them: the romantic "This I Promise You", the gorgeous "That's When I'll Stop Loving You" and the soulful acapella "I Thought She Knew". If Nsync could have included a number of ballads to complement the number of fast songs here, "No Strings Attached" could have been sounded more balanced.

A final observation: In this album, Nsync seemed to have shown more creativity in their music. While the fast songs in "All Strings Attached" are best intended for fun-listening, none of them are at least reminiscent of those trite-sounding ones (like "I Want You Back", "Tearin' Up My Heart") Nsync used to sing ages back.

Let's just hope "No Strings Attached" is the harbinger of better things to come from Nsync.

1-0 out of 5 stars Thank God the Boy Band Craze is Over
Man, oh man - thank god this craze is over. They vaulted to the top of the charts a few years ago, thanks to the dedicated teenie fans, but alas, no longer are they so respected, except by people who Never Got Over It. Yet they still linger beneath the surface, waiting to rise again. We have four who never used this horrid band as a catalyst to start something else, and then you have this yellow-haired clown invading the media worse than anthrax. And yet, you know that this single clown is going to keep reminding us that, yes Virginia, there were boy bands.

As for the cd, please do yourself a favor and don't buy this crap. If you want real music, go to the alternative tentacles website and purchase an old Dead Kennedys album. Buy a NOFX cd. Or, for crying out loud, go get a Beatles cd or an Enrico Caruso! Support anybody but these manufactured bimbos! Support REAL musicians!

Good night

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst music ever? Maybe...Wait! It is the worst!!
This is the kind of crap that makes me and every single person that has a brain become a "hater". You think NSync is good music? Here is the reality. They suck, and you are nothing but a brainwashed fool!!
MTV and the radio stations have turned the world of music into a big territory full of Crap!!! First of all, I don't know what happened to this clowns. All I know is that 4 of them must be really unhappy today and that the other one thinks he is Michael Jackson!! Can music get any worse ? I don't think so. Is hard to tell. The backstreet boys are nothing but a piece of s+++t like this crap. Is hard to tell what's the worst piece of crap in the music industry. But is clear that is after 1995. Oh that's for sure.
Everyone in this world has a dream. Well, this is my dream. I dream with the day in which rock and metal bands, that play instruments (and they do it well, not like all the Linkin Park crap!!) will invade this music world full of crap. Leading the invasion, the greatest band of all time. The one that doesn't need the stupid MTV and a crappy pop radio to sell millions. A band that changed the world of real music. Iron Maiden!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Suckiest Album of All Time
Everything on this albums sucks. If I could have I would have rated it 0/5. This isn't even music. If you want real music listen to some Sabbath or ACDC.

1-0 out of 5 stars A discrase to music
First I would like to say that five guys that don't play instruments, dance around the stage, and don't sing good lyics (in my opinion they didn't sing anything at all) is not a band. Thety are barly a music group. Them, like many other groups of the late 90's (the begining of the dark age of music that we are in now as i like to call it) only got popular becasue MTV said you should listen to it. WELL DONT. The music sucks and every time I here Bye Bye Bye I play someone ramdonly come up to me with a gun and pull the trigger. Im glad they broke up (not supprises there.) If you want good music then travel back a bit to the 60's and 70's and listne to the exellence of the music then. The Who, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin are good places to start. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Her best work so far...
I have all three of her CD's and her vocal work on this album is really amazing. I like that she sticks to what she is good at (ballads) but still tries other things without overpowering the record. I have the original released version but may pass that copy off to a friend and pick up this new version because I am in love with her remake of Angels from Robbie Williams. As for writing credits, I can only really see her influence in 4 or 5 songs - Underneath - Be - Let Go - With You - and In this Skin. The rest sound like they were written for her by other people - like her other albums (while I enjoyed them all, you can almost always tell the difference between an artist that sings their own material.)

4-0 out of 5 stars Dum dee dum (It certainly is, err...different)
I've only watched about 2 Newlyweds episodes, this is the the Jessica's only album that I have. Since I just got it about a few hours ago I haven't finished listening to all the songs yet. I've been reading al these reviews and I find them kind of funny. Who knew such arguments could come out of an innocent little CD! Well I like it, but it's not my favourite. My favourite artists include Britney Spears and Fefe Dobson (but that's for another review). Now that I've inserted new batteries into my Discman the songs are crystal clear. Here's what I think of them:

Angels- I think song order is important on a CD. I personally don't want to have to skip to the end of the CD to find a song I like. The first song on a CD is important, it gives you a first impression. This is a good pick for a 1st song. I like the music when it gets to the strong points, I don't care for the slow parts much but it makes you appreciate the better parts more. In this song I like the tune more than Jessica's voice.

With You- This is a nice song, upbeat, good song to hum along to. BUT, I'm not sure it fits into the second-song-of-the-CD category. When I first listen to a CD I listen to the songs in order, so I expected this song to be more in the middle not the beginning. Anyways I like the tune a lot.

Take My Breath Away- The reason I GOT this CD! I really love it, it's not upbeat or a hum-to-the-music song, it's slow but not too slow, I LOVE the tune and it is the best one to belt out the words to.

My Way Home- Quite different. It goes into a whole different category. It's unique, nice tune, many different instruments and sounds. Not my fave though.

Sweetest Sin- A solid song, music and voice are all right. I didn't like it all that much.

I Have Loved You- Powerful music, nice voice. Pretty good tune, one of the better songs.

Forbidden Fruit- Another one of those different songs. I like the voice and music--Pretty good! Nice lyrics, the chorus is the best part.

Everyday See You- Great lyrics, a calm song. I didn't really like Jessica's voice in this song though.

Underneath- The music is good, but this song didn't really show me anything special until the middle when it got stronger.

You Don't Have To Let Go- The music if played very well, jessica's voice isn't really predictable. You can't tell if she's going for a high note or going to saty low. It goes up and down like a roller coaster.

Loving You- Again, this song has different music than the rest. Music and voice are pretty good, lyrics weren't as important as in other songs.

In This Skin- Hey, this is the most important song on the whole CD, after all, it's on the cover! I thought the lyrics were very important and you can actualy understand them. THe music and voice were very nice as well. Great song!

Be- A perfect 'ending song'. Well actually there's another song after this but it's just a different version so that doesn't really count. It's not very upbeat, slow, just like an ending. These songs are not my favourite, usually, but this is a very nice song.

With You (Acoustic Version)-Beautiful music, a great version.

Also, I give plus points for the lyrics being on the inside booklet. (Good for those who like to sing along when they think nobody's watching). There is also a DVD containing scenes from Newlyweds and a wedding. I hope you liked this review! :)

4-0 out of 5 stars In who's skin? Britney's or Jessica's?
Does anybody know where Jessica Simpson's voice has run off to these days? When she debuted in December 1999 with her first No. 1 "I Wanna Love You Forever" her bland but powerful vocals were beautiful, simply gorgeous, and were pretty good on her other two hit-singles. But as the years rolled by it seems that Mrs. Nick Lachey's once-gorgeous chops have deteriorated, or she's just choosing the wrong song material. Producers, this girl ain't Britney Spears. The songs that you're choosing for Simpson to sing are, though. In This Skin is too Britney-ish and only has a couple worthwhile songs.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but still...
Britney Spears' "In The Zone" was one album I was truly looking forward to this year. Being a fan of hers for years, I purchased "In The Zone" looking for a "Britney." What I found was completely different than anything I've ever heard her release. The only mature aspect of the album are the lyrics. I really resent the fact that people rag on Brit's voice. Yes, she doesn't have the greatest voice, but there are a lot of singers that don't either (Madonna, Jason Mraz, etc.). I believe she is a studio singer, not a live singer. Some of the album's best tracks include: Toxic (I swear this song has to have a sample in it), Everytime (a beautiful ballad that is highly underrated), Shadow, Breathe On Me (reminicent of Kylie Minogue), and Showdown. The other songs are catchy, but lyrically, pretty shallow (Outrageous is one of R. Kelly's weakest efforts; Brave New Girl sounds as though it belongs on the Legally Blonde soundtrack; Boom Boom I would love without the Ying Yang Twins). I'm not sure why there is a remix of Me Against the Music, it is really not necessary. Overall, the album is a catchy dance album, but without much substance.

5-0 out of 5 stars She has finally arrived...
Britney Spear's 2001 release 'Britney' was an effortless album, composed of filler songs that didn't hold the same bravado, attitude, or grown folk sense as "I'm a Slave 4 u." Shortly after, Britney's credibility as a muscial talent was put on the line. She hadn't seemed to step off of the teen pop assembly line like previous dance divas. A break did Ms. Spears well, as 'In the Zone' proves. Contrary to unflattering reviews, Britney's album is not overtly sexual or nasty. The slick, club-saavy production is enough to make me praise her efforts. But it is Spears voice that has truly transformed. Her nasal, flat vocals have become richer, more soulful, natural, and I daresay capable of giving certain listeners those "chills" that other singers can give.

"Me Against the Music," the lead single from 'In the Zone', is a funky, ready for the club ass shaker. Britney even tries her hand at southern fried hip-hop. Thus comes "I Got That Boom Boom," featuring the jesters of crunk, the Ying-Yang twins. Instead of talking about every song on the album, I will say this. Ms. Spears dabbles in dancehall reggae, R. Kelly produced jams, and electronica masterpieces reminiscent of Madonna's 'Ray of Light.' Balladry is cut to a minimum, with, instead, Ms. Spears opting for a fresher, slicker sound that will appeal to fans that don't purchase Hello Kitty and Aaron Carter. This is definitely a triumph for the former teen sensation, who pens seven of the twelve songs on the album. This makes it deserving

1-0 out of 5 stars PURE SUCK!!!!
She can't sing, she can't dance, she has not talent in the music business and yet people are dumb enough to be her albums!! She just plain old SUCKS!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars boom boom....
boom Boom was the only reason I bought this CD.But when I heard the other tracks,Boom Boom got a little bit boring.Here's how I rate every track: 1.Me against the music-5/5 her first single which impressed millions of people,but don't think Madonna shoudv'e been in the song. 2.Boom Boom-5.5/5 I think it is a weird duet because she did it with the Ying Yang Twins.I love this track,though. 3.Showdown-4/5 don't really listen to it very much. 4.Breathe on me-3/5 TOO S**UAL!!! 5.Early mornin-2/5 BLAH!! I hate this song so much! 6.Toxic-4.9/5 almost 5stars but I didn't like it that much.Better than track 4!! 7.Outrageous-5/5 Was going to be her next single but she ingured her knee while shooting the video. 8.Touch of my hand-4/5 AGAIN,TOO S**UAL!! 9.The hook up-2/5 again,I hate it,but I didn't really listen to it alot. 10.Shadow-4.6/5 one of the slow songs on the album.I'm not a fan of slow beats. 11.brave new girl-10/5 I love this song so much!! The best single. 12.Everytime-5/5 2nd slow song.Her third single.I'm guessing she's talking about ex-Justin. 13.Me against the music(remix)-1/5 Worst remix I have ever heard of!!! OVERALL,I REALLY LIKE THIS ALBUM!!WHILE YOUR'E GETTING IT,ALSO BUY ASHLEE SIMPSON-AUTOBIOGRAPHY,ALANIS MORISSETTE-SO CALLED CHAOS,BEYONCE-DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE,JA RULE-LAST TEMPTATION,MICHELLE BRANCH-THE SPIRIT ROOM,PINK-TRY THIS,CHRISTINA AGUILERA-STRIPPED,AND JOJO!!!Bye!

Brandy has a lot to prove. She's had five Grammy nominations; she's won one Billboard Music Award, one American Music Award, and several Image and Soul Train awards; and she's sold over 4 million records--all by the age of 19. Never Say Never enters the scene after four years of sophomore jitters and plain old fear. And it enters with a bang. Brandy's voice suggests serious vocal training from her father, and strong songs--some written by her now-19-year-old woman-child self--attempt to take R&B back to its proper plateau. The album's first single, "The Boy Is Mine," and the Mase duet "Top of the World" serve as proof that Brandy still has the chops, determination, and cuteness to take a record to the top. --Asondra R. Hunter ... Read more

Brandy's second record is one of the most influentual albums of the late 90's At only 19 when this album dropped she had a very good project i was very impressed on how she had grown lyically and has matured from a r'n'b wannabe to an r'n'b superstar

5-0 out of 5 stars "Never Say Never" Indeed!
Brandy, Brandy, Brandy, two words come to mind. TRUE DIVA. Brandy's work on "Never Say Never" is astonishing. I totally love her to death. It's been two years since she has released this album and it is still as good since the day it was first released it.

She has laid down tracks that are true pieces of work in music history. "Have You Ever," excellent pop ballad that pretty much everyone can relate to. The song, "Almost Doesn't Count," is my favorite on the album. This song truly shows her outstanding vocal talent and how it matches well with accompanying harmonic beats. Excellent message represented in the song "Sitting On Top of The World" and the hot "department-storish" single "Angel in Disguise" is also among my favorite. "The Boy Is Mine" which was the duet with Monica was pretty good.

Brandy is such an absolutely beautiful girl who is such a positive role model in the music industry. She has such a nice outlook on life and her image is lovely. She's been raised quite well from her parents. I've been a fan of Brandy since she came out with her first album. And I'm anxiously awaiting some more new stuff from her. She's not only a great singer but also a great actress. I've been forever a fan of her UPN show Moesha. Brandy keep up the great work...your wonderful image and beautiful personality have inspired many individuals across the country to follow in your footsteps. By following positive aspirations and dreams in life. It's great to have such a grounded performer in the music industry today!

"Never Say Never" by Brandy receives a Kenny rating of A+. Excellent Album....Trust me you will have fun with this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brandy's Best CD....so far
No doubt, this is Brandy's BEST CD ever. This cd still gets played by me and others I know. Granted, Brandy is not the strongest vocalist but she does have a tone and a style of singing that will knock anybody out. Beyonce could learn a thing or two from Brandy on how to CONTROL your vocals. The best songs on this cd are "Angel In Disguise", "Almost Doesn't Count", "Never Say Never" and "Tommorrow". She even does a fine job on Bryan Adam's classic "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You". I hope Brandy's new cd is better than this one. If not, I will continue to play this one/

5-0 out of 5 stars great album
I've loved Brandy since her debut album when I first heard the single Best Friend. She expands even more creatively on this album, thanks to the help of Rodney Jerkins, I'm a big fan of his work. This album defined summer 1998 for me and is absolutely a timeless classic filled with r&b/hip hop gems that have stood the test of time. The Boy is Mine was a beautiful song and duet with Monica which was a huge hit, and the rest of the music is so amazing and so fresh and was ahead of it's time during its release. Definitely recommended for your collection if you love r&b/hip hop music or are a fan of Rodney Jerkins work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Go on Girl!!!!
I seldom buy a CD because of one song, but when "The Boy is Mine" came out, I had to get "Never Say Never". This is a great album for an even greater Singer. Brandy has a very unique voice, and the songs on the album compliment her voice exceptionally. From the upbeats of "Angel in Disguise", "The Boy is Mine" and "Happy" to the soothing "Put that on Everything", "Everything I do" and "One Voice", this is just a great SUMMER album to have. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest '90s pop albums! Beautiful!
I know that I'm writing this in 2004, but since you've featured this on Amazon, I wanted to talk about this classic. Wilson Phillips made a very good pop album in 1990! I played it over and over for some 6 to 7 months during '90-'91! I was so happy that "You're In Love" went to No. 1, because I played that over and over, far more than Hold On or Release Me! It deserved to win Grammys, but it got shut out of its nominations at the awards in '91. The breezy pop, the smooth landscapes and its balance of pop and rock from previous decades are what make it great. With their new album California, just released this week, this just makes everything come full circle for them and makes this first album more respected now. I remembered that their debut album got bashed by critics, but where are those critics now? They need to shut up and listen to this album again and accept the fact that they're back and still performing now! This is a classic many, many times over and it's so beautifully done!!!!! Loved those harmonies of theirs!

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love Wilson Phillips So Much!
I have had this CD for years now. It's one of my favorites and each lady (Chynna, Carnie, and Wendy) has a beautiful talent and were born stars! They're wonderful...their songs and voices make me so happy when I am not! The only song I'm not really into is "Ooh You're Gold". Believe me, this CD is worth every penny. All you have to do is turn the lights off and close your eyes while you listen to the disk...you'll think you're in pure Heaven! Just listen to the clips! Beautiful!

1. "Hold On" (5/5)
2. "Release Me" (4/5)
3. "Impulsive" (4/5)
4. "Next To You (Someday I'll Be)" (5/5)
5. "You're In Love" (5/5)
6. "Over And Over" (5/5)
7. "A Reason To Believe" (5/5)
8. "Ooh You're Gold" (2/5)
9. "Eyes Like Twins" (5/5)
10. "The Dream Is Still Alive" (5/5)

Awesome CD, people!

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful harmonies, great pop music.
Even though it seems almost cheesy, I have to admit how fantastic this album is. Their voices and harmonies are sublime.

3-0 out of 5 stars If you are a Wilson Phillips fan, you must own this
Nice debut album. they blend their voices nicely and the music is easy, and light--even if the themes aren't always.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hold on, for one more day...
1990 was not a great year for new CD acquisitions, but of those that I got, I snagged Wilson Phillips' debut CD because of that comforting first single that I kept hearing over and over on the radio. "Hold On" will probably go on my list of all-time favourite songs, however long that list might be. This song of emotional and mental emancipation and self-affirmation, powerful keys and guitars, with the trio's harmony vocals. And as for "Don't let anyone step all over you", "open your heart and your mind", and "you could sustain, or are you comfortable with the pain," yes... must work on that.. still. And as for that refrain, "things will go your way/just hold on for one more day," I only wish! Oh, Joe Walsh does some rhythm guitar here.

The second single "Release Me" still has shades of 80's pop, with those melodic keyboards by producer Glen Ballard. And whoever is singing lead on mid-paced Byrdsy "Impulsive" sounds a lot like Susanna Hoffs. But the solo slide and rhythm guitar is done by Mr. Walsh.

I wonder how many figured out the two protagonists in "Next To You (Someday I'll Be)" named via their surnames, Montague and Capulet. Probably the same people who've read their Willie the Shake. For those who haven't, the first names are Romeo and Juliet. This is singleworthy, but the last lines, romantic as they are, do tell of the couples' fate: "wings of love come carry us/to a place that's made for us."

However, what deservedly became a single was "You're In Love" which puts a brave and mature face on someone meeting an ex-love and is happy enough that the other's in love, albeit with someone else.

They cover Tim Hardin's "A Reason To Believe" a few years before Rod Stewart came out with his cover. They're one of many, and they do it admirably, as their harmonies really enhance this 60's folk chestnut. Steve Lukather does rhythm and solo guitars here; also Joe Walsh shows up with some additional rhythm guitar.

"Ooh You're Gold" features a skippy, up-tempo acoustic guitar, with girl-who-sounds-like-Susanna doing lead bits. Another nice love song.

The next two songs I used to program over and over as a pair. "Eyes Like Twins" for its power harmonies in the chorus and Steve Lukather's trademark Toto guitar. The verses are more mid-paced with low-key vocals, until they come alive. The idealistic and inspirational "The Dream Is Still Alive" ties with "Hold On" as my favourite song, and casts a romantic and favourable light on the 60's Summer of Love and counterculture figures, when "in a purple haze/people dreamed out loud, they were not afraid/they stopped the war but not the dying/some got a little bit lost along the way," referring to those who ended up on the pig farm and later became yuppies. This is sung from the POV of a couple who experienced that time, and the dream that's still alive is also that of the pair. Politically, Wilson Phillips affirms the title of the song despite the Reagan/Bush years.

Sweet harmony vocals with polished pop production, with some super songs and a sound that refuses to say goodbye to 80's pop/rock fusion. And the majority of the songs were written by the trio and Glen Ballard. Too bad it only lasted with this and Shadows And Light, their second and last album. Now how about a reunion album? ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A Nice Collection From A Talented Young Lady
Debbie Gibson along with New Kids On the Block and Tiffany ruled the late 80's and early 90's with their pleasent bubble-gum pop. The big difference was, Debbie did most of her own writing and producing. All of her big songs are on here including "Only In My Dreams", "Shake Your Love", "Out of the Blue", "Electric Youth", "Foolish Beat", and probably her biggest hit "Lost In Your Eyes." I bought the album mostly for the song "Only In My Dreams", but discovered the awesome pop tune "Out of the Blue" which is now probably my favorite. The rest of the songs were minor hits and nothing to make much noice about. There are also two good remixes of "Shake Your Love" and "Only In My Dreams." For someone who was a teenager in the late-80's, this is a good nostalgic trip. Or for someone who just likes good pop, this is worth checking out.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brings You Back Down 1980s Teen Pop Lane!
Debbie Gibson came onto the scene in 1987 and won immediate attention and success with her debut album "Out of the Blue", scoring 4 Top 5 Hits, and becoming the youngest performer to write, produce and sing a No.1 song.

Great songs include "Shake Your Love", "Anything Is Possible", and her last Hot 100 chart single 1993s "Losin' Myself" remixed.

Debbie now Deborah has come along way on the circuit of music, and though I have been a fan of her music and watching it change over the years, I am still reminiscent of her earlier music.

Debbie has a talent for good pop....as it shows with her latest single "What You Want" now playing on the radio. Her career has spanned from Pop Diva to Broadway, which she is currently writing her first musical for Broadway titled "Skirts".

This lady has it all brains, power, and musical talent....and if people want to kid me about "Electric Youth" so what! , its got a great beat and its easy to dance to.

Debbie (Deborah) has always had a talent for hooks in songs, and there is nothing short on this compilation.

The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 stars, is because whoever put this compilation together was not a true Gibson fan.

They are missing remixes of "Out of the Blue", her other singles "Shock Your Mama", the chart single "We Could Be Friends" and the top 20 chart club success from the "Anything Is Possible" album, which unfortunately at this moment the title eludes me.

Anyway the compilation could of been a little better since it was Deborahs last contractual album with her label Atlantic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reminds me of why I got into music in the first place
Perky, fun, and always on key, Miss Gibson gives the performances of her life on these popular tracks. Unlike Britney Spears and raunchy Madonna, Gibson never used sex to sell her music; instead, she relied on what the aforementioned female artists never had: raw talent. I was lucky enough to catch a few Debbie Gibson concerts during her "Fall for the Mall" tour back in '88, and my ears are still ringing to this day. Debbie Gibson's influence ranges far and wide, and she is responsible for my obsession with death metal in 2004. Thanks for the inspiration, Debbie!

P.S. - The track "Foolish Beat" on this record is especially transcendent.

4-0 out of 5 stars My #1 guilty pleasure
Long before Twitney Spears, NStink, and the Backdoor Boys, there was Tiffany, New Kids on the Block and Debbie Gibson. What does all those people have in common? The put out cavity-inducing music. Of all the pop acts I have listed, the only person I liked back in the late '80s was Debbie Gibson. I liked her music more than Tiffany's. Plus Debbie actually wrote and produce her own music which I can't say the same for mall rat Tiffany. Still Debbie did manage to churn out some real cheesy songs like "Shake Your Love" (the one Debbie Gibson song that I don't like). Sure Debbie's music screams out "I am the cheese!" like in songs such as "Electric Youth" and the syrupy ballad "Lost in Your Eyes" but at least Debbie never pulled any stupid stunts ..., nor did she have to resort to using her sexuality to sell records. I may not be a Debbie Gibson fan now but I occasionally like to throw in her greatest hits for a trip down memory lane. Her music is a huge guilty pleasure for me.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sound the same as the day she hit the lollipop scene
Debbie is ever so sweet and gentile and so is her music. This is her greatest hits. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars closet Hanson fan comes out!
As a late twentysomething indie-punk rock fan, and lover of such dark brooders as Black Sabbath and angst-ridden screamers like Hole, why the heck is Hanson spinning in my CD player more than the rest? For starters, its infectious beats and bouncy melodies are like a can full o' insta-happiness. They manage to be cheerful without being precious or cloying or just plain boring like a lot of teen fluff groups that Hanson is unfairly compared with. The Dust Brothers' fantastic production is largely responsible, I'm sure, but it wouldn't work without some spot-on lyrics and Taylor's achingly soulful voice. This is no Nine Inch Nails, but darn it, high school can be pretty traumatic while you're living it, and Hanson manages to capture the sweet frustration of those years with pure sincerity. This is one teenpop band I pray will survive the hype and keep on well into the uncertainties of adulthood. Good job, boys.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD, I've had it since 1997...and I still love it!
This album is just...awesome. Itz hard to believe kids that age can actully write stuff like that. Let's review the songs shall we?

Thinking Of You - I love this song. Itz not the deepest thing they've ever witten but itz ceatchy...you'll wanna sing along :o)

MMMBop - Who hasn't heard MMMBop? I still love this song, itz one of my favorites.

Weird - My non-Hanson fan friends love this song. The lyrics are great and itz just a really cool song.

Speechless - Again, a great song...nice and catchy the chorus is my favorite part!

Where's The Love - I love to rock out to this song...itz just fun. The best part is Zac's little line in there "We're waiting for a bright light to break threw" ahh..I love that

Yearbook - A song Hanson has yet to play live but itz awesome. Itz about a missing kid and no one knows where he went...itz a really strong song with great lyrics.

Look At You - The same thing with Where's The Love, I love to rock out to this song and jump around all over the place while listening to it lol...it rocks..I love it.

Lucy - Adorable song. Itz about breaking up with someone and realizing what a big mistake it was and wanting them back.

I Will Come To You - My friend Jess, who is not a Hanson fan by any means is in love with this song. Itz so good. I listen to it all the time.

A Minute Without You - I love this song...everyone loves this song, itz fast and really fun.

Madeline - Great song. We'll leave it at that.

With You In Your Dreams - Hanson wrote this for their grandmother who passed away a while ago, they wrote it when they were really little..itz amazing how they can write stuff like this when were so young.

Man From Milwakee - A fun song about an Alien lol..Zac wrote this..itz funny and cute...I love it.

So there's Middle of Nowhere for you! Itz a great CD, and if you want to hear a more mature sound go out there and get This Time Around, both albums rock.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good!
I got this cd back in 1997 and I still listen to it. its an awesome cd... you might only remember them for 'mmmbop' but theres other great songs on it, too.please give it a chance, i guarantee you will enjoy it! if you really want to see how their music has evolutionized, buy 'this time around' and 'underneath'. if you're not a fan, you probably will be.

5-0 out of 5 stars An album you'll never forget.
Ive been a hanson fan since they mmmbop'ed their way on to the charts. And trust me once you hear this cd you'll listen to it for hours,and hours without stop. The songs are like magnets each of them you will catch pressing repeat for. And you'll never ever forget how well they harminize, and the songs will be stuck in your head, trust me if you are thinking about buying this album, don't think twice because if you don't buy it , it will be one of the worst mistakes 4 u to make when buying new cd's

5-0 out of 5 stars Where's the love? It's right here!
For all the people who bash Hanson and their debut because of their looks: If you strip away the CD inlay with all those glossy photos, try to forget the image Hanson had in 1997, and just listen to the music on the album, there is no way that you could honestly give any valid reasons for saying that Hanson's music sucks. You can say you hate their image until you're blue in the face, but that has nothing to do with the music they create. The playing on MON is better than anything I hear on the radio or MTV these days. Plus, the vibe of nearly every song has a bit of funk to them (which is sorely absent from the drag-me-down grunge rip-off music that pollutes the airwaves nowadays). There's nothing you can't like on here. It has everything from jump-up-and-down pop ("Look at You" and "Speechless"), to goofy sing-alongs ("Man from Milwaukee"), to emotional pleads put to music ("Yearbook"). Just for the record, I think the brothers Hanson looked better with long hair back in the earlier days of their career. Zac has gotten quite portly compared to the way he used to be, and his severely short haircut doesn't hide that. Ike doesn't look very good with his semi-punk mini-mohawk, and Taylor... well, he's the only one who looks better than he did back in 1997. My faves include: "Minute Without You", "Madeline", "Thinking of You", "Where's the Love", and "Yearbook". ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My Sister wanted me to listen to her BSB's CD.Its not bad
First of all,I'm not a fan,but my Sister is.I have enjoyed some of there songs played on the radio,but after awhile it seems like every record from Backstreet Boys,N'Sync,and all the other boy bands sound the same.I did listen to "Black and Blue," and enjoyed alot of the cuts.My Favorite's are the one's written by the group,"The Answer to our Life,and "Time," Produced my Baby Face,and background vocals by this artist.Another great number,"I Promise you," by Dan Hill,is very different from the rest of the cuts,and wonderfull.The last song is the Masterpiece"How did I Fall in Love with you.Its just the Piano and Strings,with fantastic vocals from the band.The one thing that touched my heart was the inside cover.Three of the Backsteet Boys,A.J,Nick,and Brian,give thanks to Our Lord with all there heart,especially Brian.It looks like will be hearing songs from this CD played on the radio for years to come.

5-0 out of 5 stars Black and Blue vs Celebrity - RESULT: Black & Blue won!
I love BSB and their latest effort Black & Blue. It's really good musically and lyrically. Makes them an outstanding and prominent among others. I admit N Sync's Celebrity is good too and it's doing quite well. Despite that I believe they will never beat BSB. Backstreet Boys were the ones who first started the mordern boyband phenomenon and I respect them for it. What N Sync really lacks is originality, overall good lyrics, good vocals (capared to BSB that is) and teamwork (let Lance, Christ and Joey sing too). That's what makes BSB and Black & Blue better than N Sync and Celebrity, respectively. (Compare the following songs with 'The Call', 'Shape of My Heart', 'Get Another Boyfriend', 'Shining Star', 'I promise you (...)' and 'The Answer To Our Life', well I think BSB's songs are better) The only goos songs in Celebrity are 'Pop', 'Gone', 'The Game is Over', 'Just don't tell me that', 'Something Like You' and 'Selfish'. BSB are cuter and more hot too. I know N Sync fans will disagree with this statement.

Don't get me wrong guys, Celebrity does have some good elements, MUSIC (but some songs have decent lyrics too) and that's IT! While Black & Blue has everything, good good, nice vocals and great music . Nick, AJ, Brian, Howie and Kevin always sound awesome. I like Justin's voice too but sometimes he does sound so whiny (listen to 'Pop', you'll get me). What's wrong with him? Oh well at least he's good for ballads.

...

5-0 out of 5 stars KTBSPA!
this album is awsome! all of their songs have a meaning behind them! the best songs on this album are, I Promise You (With Eveyrthing I Am), because the beat is great, and its just a really sweet song, that is easy to love! Time, because teh boys talk about their past before they became teh legendary Backstreet Boys, and also because AJ sounds amazing, but when does he not??). And Lastly Yes I Will, because it a really nice song, and also because AJ wrote it. Its a real personal song, that is easy to love!
So i would defiantely recomend this album to anybody who appreciates good music and talent. The boys definately posess both of these qualities.
P.S. Backstreet Boys were here first! and they will be her last! N*SYNC and all the other little boys groups cant even live up to the Backstreet Boys. They cant even compare! so KTBSPA!

WTF? That one reviewer gave this junk 5 stars and gave one of Black sabbath's album 1 star. WTF? Sweet jesus! I think I had a poo nugget soil my undies! Nevermind, it's just a turtle head, now it's back inside.

Seriously, that reviewer is stupid beyond belief! Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd,etc. are legends! Each band actually has TALENT!
Now on to this album:I don't even own it, but I already know it sucks alot(trying to not curse)! For good music stick with bands like Nevermore, Nothingface, older KoRn, Slayer, Pantera,etc.
Peace out all!

Yes, she did. Even if the title track's chorus is a blatant rip-off of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet, "Woman in Love," it's still darn catchy--much more than anything from 1999's ...Baby One More Time (save the album's fab title tune, of course). With the rest of the 12 songs here, the teen queen pretty much delivers a remake of her last album. Songs like "What U See (Is What U Get)" and "Stronger" show Swedish songwriter-producer Max Martin in his element, churning out another and yet another slick smash with staccato synth beats and heavily overproduced melodies. But even at his strongest points, he can't bury Britney's voice far enough below the virtual guitars--and it's obvious this girl ain't no Celine. Except for the horrendous ballads, however, that doesn't make a stitch of a difference. The pop songs have all the qualities of memorable tunes--the choruses are clear and catchy, the beats are bouncy enough to make you shake your bonbon, and the singer is about as randy for love as Austin Powers is for a shag. Edit out the low-water mark--when Britney mutilates the Rolling Stones' misogynist anthem, "Satisfaction," by oversexualizing it with inserted "uh"s ("I can't get no, uh, satisfaction")--and you've got a hit-packed album that's as guilty a pleasure as reruns of Beverly Hills 90210. --Heidi Sherman ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Britney "Satisfies" on sophomore disc
If Britney Spears' debut album "...Baby One More Time" was a "white hot funk smoker," then her follow-up album "Oops...I Did it Again" could be labeled an "orgasm inducing slice of ear-pleasing pie." Witness as Britney growls and coos her way through the title track, leaving even the most demanding music connoiseur feenin' for more of her blatant yet subdued sexuality. And Britney's clever rehash of the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" excited my friend into a hormonal frenzy, yelling at the top of his lungs, "THIS SONG IS MAKING ME HOT!" If these two tracks alone are any indication of what's to come on the rest of the album, a first-time listener should prepare him/herself for a rip-roaring roller coaster ride through the confused mind of an adolescent girl blossoming into a bonafide young sex symbol. "OOps" proves, if nothing else, that there's a little bit of 16 year-old girl, or boy, in all of us. Musically, all of what was included on the first CD, is back, but amplified tenfold and injected with even more singability. "Stronger" and "Lucky" demand your attention, and by second listen, you will be singing along at the top of your lungs. The album loses some momentum as the Robert "Mutt" Lange penned "Don't Let Me Be The Last to Know" takes up space in a line-up of otherwise smoking beats. This average ballad is soon forgotten, however, as Britney wastes no time in moving right back into her proven material, white hot funk dance smokin' songs. There are definitely more gems on this disc than granite pebbles. The throwaway tracks "Where Are You Now" and "Dear Diary" (written by the young diva herself) are outweighed by the above-mentioned smokers. By the end of the CD, the young listener, the demographic to whom the disc is primarily marketed, will be ready to hit "rewind" and start again. The older, and more jaded listener, will be digging in his or her closet, looking for those old dancing shoes. Check this CD out, it truly is da bomb!

Britney Spears is the pop princess today, more popular then all of her fellow teen female artists: Christina, Jessica and Mandy. Even though her voice doesn't seem that brilliant, she has catchy songs, a good personality and something very important....stage presence. I do think that Ms. Spears is a good singer, and it's not her voice that's the problem. It's her songs. A fun catchy lyric with a good sing-along dance tune is nice every once in a while, but none of her songs allow her to sing in the high or low ranges which I find very disappointing. Even when she was younger, she had a voice that could blow people away (example: Star Search, Mickey Mouse Club), so what I ask is what happened to her voice! But even so, her CD isn't bad....just a little disappointing. Overall it's a great CD for a party. Here are my reviews on each song.

1. "Oops!...I Did It Again" (3/5) This was her first single for the album. Fun, catchy, upbeat......sadly overplayed, which makes it tiring and boring. I'll be honest, I didn't think this song was a very big deal, just kind of a good rhythm for a party. A mixture of bubble-gum pop, hip-hop, and dancing music.

2. "Stronger" (4/5)I liked this song alot better then "Oops I Did It Again"....better combination...music..message. The beginning is interesting, with it's retro, techno beat even though that's not what the song is like AT ALL! The chorus however is an interesting combination of pop, a bit of country, and rock. The message is excellent, telling someone that they emotional stronger then they used to be and are starting to care less about what other people think. It sounds somewhat like a Shania Twain, Celine Dion and Jessica Simpson song. Don't skip this!

3. "Don't Go Knocking On My Door" (3/5) It's not like this song is terrible or anything...it's just strange. The music is techno, cyberspace and retro all molded into one. Definitely a song to play with a disco ball. Not one of Britney's better songs, but not bad. It is a good listen though when you're really angry or upset(specifically at your boyfriend/girlfriend or your parents)

4. "Satisfaction" (3/5) The introduction to this is hilarious! When I first heard it I immediately started laughing. The acting is just so terrible that it's impossible not to burst out with laughter! As for the actual song....it starts out so you think it's a sad depressing song, when it's just the opposite. Very upbeat, a mix of 80's pop, bubble-gum pop, and a little country. It's alright, just an average space filler

5. "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know" (5/5) I REALLY liked this song. Sadly, still not showing any of Britney's high-low range talent, but none of her songs do. Great slow ballad. Britney's message is talking about how if her boyfriend is cheating on her, she doesn't want to find out after everyone else does. Something I appreciated is that live, Britney doesn't ruin the song with tough yelling notes like Christina Aguilera. Little message, Christina: Your angry screams will NOT spice up your ballads. Anyway, back on the Britney subject, I really enjoyed this number....Britney's voice sounded really mature in this melody. A little bit of Mariah even creeps into the song.

6. "What U See (Is What U Get)" (5/5) THIS IS THE BEST FAST SONG ON THE ALBUM! The tune sound little like "Oops I Did It Again" but its alot better then that. VERY R&B...the tune sounds like a mixture of something Blaque, Destiny's Child or Mandy Moore would sing. Catchy, Upbeat....you will find yourself dancing because this song is so likable. This should most definitely be Britney's next single. Congratulations, Ms. Spears....you sang a good song!

7. "Lucky"-(5/5) This is a very overplayed popular song, but I still enjoy it. This song reminds me of Jessica Simpson's "My Wonderful" but this almost-ballad I think is much better. Something I appreciate is that this song is different then most other pop hits today....because the lyric tells a story. The music video is much better then "Oops I Did It Again" and the song is somewhat sad. Um....a little bit of a slow and fast song but more of a ballad then anything else.

8. "One Kiss From You"(3/5) Um.....this song is definitely a slow song, no doubt about it, but it sounds like one of Britney's not-so-good songs from her previous album "....Baby One More Time". Once again, this song isn't horrible, but then again, I've heard better. The tune is a little out of place and overall the song is nothing more then strange. This song is definitely on the "skipped over list" as far as I'm concerned...songs like these are made to kind of make the album more complete.

9. "Where Are You Now" (4/5) Definately a super-sweet ballad. I LOVE the tune....I thought it was excellant. Britney actually sings a semi-high note (kind of a beginning chorus semi-high note for Christina or Jessica), which I found delightful. Strangely this song reminds me of Christina Aguilera's "Reflections" and Jessica Simpson's "Heart of Innocence", but unfortunately this song does not "reflect" as much of Britney's vocal talent as I would hope.

"Can't Make You Love Me" (4/5) Bubble-gum pop is the only way to describe it. This song unfortunately lacks the R&B beat that I love. It's not too bad..a good dancing easy-listen rhythm that's good for relaxation. DEFINATELY lacking power but this is a fast fun bouncy song, so what exactly do you expect! The tune to this song reminds me of "I Will Be There" from Britney's previous album "...Baby One More Time" EASY LISTENING!

"When Your Eyes Say It" (2/5)- Um...hello? Britney, could you please speak up and start singing! An extremely weak ballad that could use some voice and energy! Another song to the "skip list" I guess. This is one of the worst songs on the album, sorry to say. Oh well....far from perfect but not TERRIBLY awful.

"Dear Diary" (2/5) Alright, the intro to this is even FUNNIER then "Satisfaction"....unrealistic acting once again. This song is finally written by the artist, Britney Spears herself. Maybe Britney should stick to singing and not writing. This song is extremely undecent and the same tune carries on through out the whole song. No talent pursued at all.

Overall, this CD is pretty good, not excellant, but good. Easy listening and great dance music! I recomend this CD to people who like bubble-gum pop.

I hope you found my review convient, and that it helps you decide whether to buy Britney Spears' CD.

1-0 out of 5 stars Blah
This CD is possibly one of the worst CDs EVER. At least I can't say It's Britney that's making it awful, because she doesen't write (not surprising, eh?) her own songs. DO NOT BUY THIS CD!

Listen to someone like Fefe Dobson, No Doubt or Vitamin C. Much higher quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most recognizable CDs of the modern music era
Britney Spears. I think anybody who is somebody knows who this young girl is. The global phenomenom that is Miss Spears boomed onto the scene in 1998 when her deliciously tarty "...Baby One More Time" hit the charts and made its way into history as a No. 1 single, Grammy nominee and one of the most recognizable songs in music history. Then came Britney's second Jive release, the record-breaking, just-as-delicious Oops!...I Did It Again, in which this girl delivered another smash Grammy-nodded album. Though her voice may not be as powerful as rival Christina Aguilera's there's no doubt La Brit has talent - nobody complained about her trademark throatiness when she first hit MTV! Don't dislike her just because she's become a huge superstar. This disc is in what many consider the perfect pop record; every track on this CD is a possible hit in my opinion. Britney Spears most certainly did do it again! This definitely should've won a Grammy for Album of the Year, for it was certainly the most talked-about CD of the year - for good reason, Britney rocks. Buy this disc!
