In The Zone

An album by Britney Spears

She still can't sing

It might be the girl's 4th album, but some songs, literally made me want to cry, and no not from emotion, but from the fact that Britney sounds like a dying dried out old goat in heat.
The melodies and beats, in some songs are nice and catchy . I loved the melody in "Touch of my hand" with a little asian sounds, and "toxic" that sounded like some techno western music, really rocked, but her raspy voice cannot reach many notes, and ruines pretty much anything she sings. Actually her attempt to "sing" is blasphemy! It's like calling processed cheese food, provolone cheese, or comparing spam to brisket.
Britney is trully an intersting mutation of a female zygot, but she ain't a singer.

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.

About this album


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
