However coy she might be in her public statements, Britney Spears leans more than a bit toward the provocative onIn 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 withMadonna, "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 asErotica,Ray of Light, andMusic, she’s out to bend current trends to her needs.R. Kelly,Moby, andYing Yang Twinsall 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 ofCyndi Lauper’s "She Bop." She still lacks a fully formed artistic vision of her own, butZone, with its many get-free anthems, puts her much closer.--Rickey Wright

Actually her attempt …

This is one of those CDs, like Christina Aguilera's "Stripped" or Madonna's "Erotica" that just takes you by surprise. Yeah, she's been given the title of the Queen of Pop but when you look at the music biz today, pop really isn't what it was when started. Is this some joke of an album? Not at all. Should it be taken lightly? Most definately not. Britney Spears steps out on this one and really brings on the music and I must say, this is by far one of the best CDs she's put out. My top picks and …
