Where Britney Spears's first two albums hewed to the early-'60s formula of one strong single plus a stack of filler--a fair bit of which ended up on the radio anyway--her third justifies itself as a full-length listen. Led by the single "I'm a Slave 4 U," a Neptunes-helmed piece of electrofunk that promises she'll do anything you want as long as it's dancing, the album continues through superior versions of Spears's poses. Calculated frustration with the adult world? Calculated independence? Sheer celebration? Check, check, and check: "Overprotected," "Let Me Be," and a cover of "I Love Rock & Roll" that brings to mind its bubblegum roots. Even without the joyous disco tribute of "Anticipating" and the not-icky ballad "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" providing symbolic respite from the rest of this machine-tooled music, Britney is one of the most human discs of the current teen-pop boom. If it spins off the deserved string of radio/video smashes, it may even buy this superstar a second 15 minutes. --Rickey Wright

And then "In the Zone" was alright, but it wasn't really my style, with some of the rapping and stuff. It was an ok album, but her best album definitely was her third release.
this album was britney in her transitional phase, so it's not too bubblegum, and not too club/dancy. it's got a good middle part taking the best from both worlds.
Im a Slave 4 U - First single that everyone's heard, it's really catchy and anyone finds it hot
Overprotected - It's got the catchy chorus that made her first two albums smash hits, and has the background music to this "new" britney sound.
Lonely - Awesome songs, one of the best on the CD. It kind of has a small tint of rock to it, and has a great beat
Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman - Ehh... It's cute.
Boys - Its not too bad, has the elements of track 1 in it. I like this version better than the Radio Remix becasue it's just britney singing and not with a wrapper.
Anticipating - Sounds like a 70's disco song, kind of catchy but can get old fast.
I Love Rock 'n Roll - Cover of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. I didn't like the remake when i first herd it, but it grows on you.
Cinderella - Awesome track, much like her song "Stronger" from the last album.
Let Me Be - Funky in-your-face song.Read more ›
To me... eh, she's okay. I like her, but I don't find her a blight on this planet (relax, she wants to sing and dance and look pretty - she's harmless, people), but it's not like I find her the best friggin' thing since sliced bread (and really, what could top sliced bread anyway?) But enough on that - this is about Britney, not... Britney. Okay, you know what I mean.
Bye-bye, sugary-sweet ballads of old. ...Baby One More Time's gone out the window, and while I found it enjoyable, I'm glad Britney finally ditched the damn sugar-rush tunes of old. And, thank god, we didn't get another Oops! ...I Did It Again. No, folks, here was have possibly the finest album of her career... so far:
Britney. The R&B-tinged, synthed-to-hell mixing pot of dancey pop smashes, disco-lite, and... all that other fun stuff.
You have the good - I'm A Slave 4 U comes to mind first off, with its slinky, sexy, strippery Neptunes sound, complete with groaning synths and groaning blonde teenager. (Or post-eenager - I forget her age at the album's release) You have the chimey, dark-n-sassy Bombastic Love, a song for which I seem to be the only supporter. Damn. But moving on.
Of course, you also have the stumble. Only one this time - say it now: Hooray.Read more ›
"Let Me Be" is a great dance song, with a stuttering, mechanical string hook. "Boys" sounds great, with its hip-swinging beat, and "Overprotected" and "Cinderella" hark back to the days of "Ooops...I did It Again," the two songs sound fresh, as opposed to stale leftovers.
The only misstep on this record (and it's a mighty one, at that) is her ridiculous cover of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock and Roll," which Spears does not have the rock n' roll chops nor the grit to perform. However, her disco-anthem "Anticipating" makes up for that error, beautifully, easily being the most beautiful song on the album. For once Spears sings without any affectations and her voice is (somewhat) free of the sonic gauze and gloss, and hearing her chipmunk chirp singing about the joys of dancing, over the strings makes this record worth is price.
