This special UK edition features two extra tracks, 'Could It Be You' and 'This Is Where the Party's At'. In addition, the UK edition is also enhanced to feature the 'It's Gonna Be Me' promo video, a message to the fans, one screensaver, an N Sync quiz (10 multiple choice questions) and a 'Snap Game' (approximately eight pairs of pictures, click to uncover the picture and make a pair).
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

*NSYNC's sophomore album "No Strings Attached" starts off with a little bit of an explosion. Obviously, 'Bye, Bye, Bye' was a ridiculously HUGE hit for the group, but it truly deserved to be so, what with this INCREDIBLY infectious melody and the whole group's balance as a centralized unit. The same could be said for 'It's Gonna Be Me', the second single and, SURPRISE, second track off the album. Similar tracks like these dot the album, notably 'Space Cowboy' featuring Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes, may she rest is holy peace, as well as the title track 'No Strings Attached' and the AWESOME full-dance number 'Bringin' Da Noise'. That song, my friends, is INTENSELY cool.
Some songs don't really cut it with me, namely 'I'll be Good for You', which is a rather boring, sappy track, and 'Just Got Paid'. While 'Just Got Paid' really isn't all that BAD, it also really isn't all that GOOD, and remains pretty forgettable.Read more ›
True, it was teenagers and first-graders (and their parents' money) that helped the album achieve this. But, nevertheless, it had killer singles "Bye Bye Bye" and "It's Gonna Be Me" (both cut by the Swedish production team Cheiron who also worked for BSB, Britney and even Celine, around former heavy metal songwriter Max Martin). Another single, the stately Richard Marx-penned ballad "This I Promise You" and bonus track on European CD ("I'll Never Stop") are decent, as are a 1970's throwback "I'll Be Good For You" and a-capella "I Thought She Knew". The rest is not much more than bland filler.
If you really like pop and do not have this album, it's worth hearing for the three singles, but as a whole, it's not even NSync best ("Celebrity" is better). On "No Strings Attached", hooks are there. But: a successful white male pop vocal group is now a phenomenon nearing extinction. And no wonder; this album, although commercially a huge hit, is far from timeless.

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,... Read morePublished on July 19 2004
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. Read morePublished on July 4 2004 by T. Torres
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.Published on June 28 2004 by Gibson SG

Hmm...I wonder why you can get this CD for $0.46 here? Probably because it's degrading nauseating boy band pop junk! Read morePublished on May 17 2004 by Barbara Streisands Love Slave
They don't write any of their own songs, they sing with little or no emotion, their voices are annoying and whiny and there is no attempt at creating variety. Read morePublished on May 13 2004 by EvilBrit2K3
