Product Description

Product Description

Jive Recording artist Britney Spears is set to release her 4th album, In The Zone on November 18. The first single "Me Against The Music" features Madonna.

Britney Spears co-wrote 7 of the 13 songs on the album. Some of the producers/writers on the album include Moby ("Early Mornin'"), Bloodshy & Avant ("Showdown"), Guy Sigsworth ("Everytime") and R. Kelly ("Outrageous").

Amazon.ca

However coy she might be in her public statements, Britney Spears leans more than a bit toward the provocative on In the Zone. Less concerned with aiming at the mainstream radio dial than in the first days of her career, she and her collaborators make this as street and club ready a record as possible. The opening duet with Madonna, "Me Against the Music," is worthy, but the bigger superstar’s presence serves almost less as a performance than a key to Britney’s intentions: as Madonna did on albums such as Erotica , Ray of Light, and Music, she’s out to bend current trends to her needs. R. Kelly, Moby, and Ying Yang Twins all provide stirring moments that draw on everything from Bollywood to Southern hip-hop, while one of the most impressive tracks, "Touch of My Hand," joins the proud tradition of Cyndi Lauper’s "She Bop." She still lacks a fully formed artistic vision of her own, but Zone, with its many get-free anthems, puts her much closer. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of Britney Oct. 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In the five years since you first heard Britney Spears' bubblegum pop anthem "...Baby, One More Time" alot has changed. Your age, your musical tastes, and Britney Spears. Have you noticed? After trying to show us she's grown up on her last two albums (only failing by a little, and coming very close the third time around) she is ready to go all out. Discussing more adult situations, working with a wider variety of producers, and even some collaborations make Britney Spears' "In The Zone" a fantastic musical experience. On the opening track "Me Against The Music" featuring none other than Spears' own muse, Madonna, they tell the story of a battle with a song, if you can figure out what she's saying. After listening to it over and over again though, the club anthem (yes, you read right, club, not bubblegum pop) grows on you and becomes as infectious and catchy as Britney was in her early days. On the Moby contribution to the album, "Early Mornin'" Britney sings about waking up after a hard night of partying feeling a bit under the weather over a fantastic bubbling beat. P. Diddy's contribution, "The Answer" is another standout track, which unbelievably almost didn't make the album. However, the best of the hip hop collaborations is either with R. Kelly ("Outrageous" on which Spears sings about things such as "my sex drive" and "my world tour" and "my shopping spree" and saying how sexy her underwear feel in her jeans.) or the duet with the Ying Yang twins ("(I've Got That) Boom Boom" on which Spears sets out to prove she's got the beat). The albums true standout moments come from the albums two ballads. The Matrix (Avril Lavigne, Liz Phair) contribute what Rolling Stone calls a "Mid 90's Aerosmith ballad" with "Shadow," a truly amazing revelation for people who say Spears can't sing. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Even if you hate Britney, you might like this!!, January 30, 2007

Take it from someone who's really not a huge Britney fan. In fact, I've bashed her many times, lol. But this CD is actually REALLY good. She experiments with electronica, synth and dance, and it actually fits her like a glove (especially since her voice is so filtered, she sounds like a robot sometimes). It's different than the pop fluff that she usually does.

STAND-OUT TRACKS:

TOXIC - I have to admit this is one of the best pop songs of this millenium. The beat is so catchy and it sounded different than anything else on the radio. Like her or not, you have to admit that "Toxic" is fantastic.

EVERYTIME - Yes, Britney actually has a nice sounding ballad. Her voice isn't spectacular, but the synth piano, strings and subtle percussion create a haunting masterpiece. This song actually gives me goosebumps. One of the best ballads I've ever heard (seriously).

BRAVE NEW GIRL - This song sounds very similar to Imani Capolla's "Legend of a Cowgirl". It also has elements of Madonna's "Material Girl", and Talk Talk/no Doubt's "It's my Life". Nevertheless, her voice sounds kind of cool because the engineer made it sound electronic (a la Cher) at some parts. Overall, a great, and fun dance song.

SHADOW - Another great ballad. I was produced by The Matrix, so it does sound a little Avril-ish. But there are a lot of synth sound effects which give it a futuristic feel. Definitely a good listen.

SHOWDOWN - This is kind of a mid-tempo pop song that sounds very unique. It's very catchy, and it has a lot of dance/analog elements in it. The guitars make the song what it is in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 and a half, actually. June 20 2007
By Zane
Format:Audio CD
With her fourth album coming out, Britney is a whole new woman. She left the whole "I'm Not a Girl" act and put on a whole sexually-charged grown-up dance album that just might break some of her strongest barriers.

"Me Against the Music" is the opening track, which features Madonna, is produced by Trixster (Rihanna) and it's quite the dance track Britney hasn't recorded just until now. She hits the clubs with "(I Got That) Boom Boom" featuring the Ying-Yang Twins, but the twins include an annoying chant more than half of the track. Bloodshy & Avant appear twice, with the clever pop-dance tracks "Showdown" and "Toxic." R. Kelly mocks her "sex drive" and "shopping srees" in "Outrageous," she discovers her body in "Touch of My Hand" and again, doesn't need sex to feel good in the electronic "Breathe on Me."

There's nothing neo-electric like "Anctipating" from 2001's "Britney," but there's "Brave New Girl," a song about a girl who's just looking for a hook-up on the dance floor. "Early Mornin'" features a slick Moby production as an ode to coming home 5 in the morning.

She's got the glitter, the glam, the beats and the hot guys next to her, but at least she's leaving the rapping up to the Ying-Yang Twins.

Stand-out tracks: "Me Against the Music," "(I Got That) Boom Boom," "Showdown," "Toxic"

4.0 out of 5 stars Britney is in the zone Aug. 14 2004
By Chad
Format:Audio CD
well first of all, I still think she can do better, but this is probably her best CD yet, here`s what i think of the songs...
1. Me against the music feat. Madonna: this is a good dancy club song. 9/10
2.(I got that) boom boom feat. ying yang twins: I usually skip this one, I don`t like it, least fav. on the CD,would be better without the twins. 1/10
3. Showdown: I love the music in this song, but the lyrics are pretty dumb. 8/10
4. Breathe on me: my fav. song on the CD!, I love this song, the beat rocks, Britney should do more songs like this. 10/10
5. Early mornin`: very cool song, the music and beat sound great. 8.5/10
6. Toxic: I like the sound of this one, very different. 8.5/10
7. Outrageous: 2 words, (Very repetitive!) but still pretty good with a dance/RnB sound to it. 8/10
8. Touch of my hand: this one is cool but i doubt it will ever be a single with the message of it, very cool music though. 9/10
9. The hook up: the middle of the song when she sings faster sounds awesome, i like this one too. 8/10
10. Shadow: i really like this one, a very nice ballad with nice lyrics, my 2nd fav. on the CD. 10/10
11. Brave new girl: talk about pop! this song is the popiest one on the disc. the britney rap is pretty cool though. 6.5/10
12. Everytime: the 2nd ballad on the CD, I personally like "Shadow" better but this one is ok. 7.5/10
13. Me against the music (remix) I like this remix, it has a nice vibe to it, a nice change from the orignal. 9/10
here are my favs.
1st Breathe on me
2nd Shadow
3rd Me against the music
4th Touch of my hand
5th Early mornin`
over all, not a bad CD, buy it and enjoy it :)
