Biography

Britney Spears was born in Kentwood, Louisiana on December 2, 1981. Appearing in variety shows and choirs throughout her hometown, Britney’s talent was obvious from a young age. The aspiring young performer’s first major audition was for The Disney Channel’s “Mickey Mouse Club” at the age of eight. Too young for the show, but too talented to dismiss, a Disney ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

As Brit and her fan base grow older, it's perhaps inevitable that Miss Spears's third album would be one of those difficult "coming of age" affairs. Luckily Britney manages to carefully mix the more "credible", Prince/adult style tunes (thankfully there are only two--"I'm A Slave 4 U" and "Boys")--with the more formulaic pop anthems that have made her great ("Anticipating", "Cinderella", "Bombastic Love" and "Let Me Be"). The pressures of "growing-up" and the adolescent gripe of being taken seriously, seems to a dominant theme which runs right through the album from the, "...I need to make mistakes to know who I am" lyrics on the N'Sync-style "Overprotected", to the appropriately titled, "I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman". Perhaps Britney's street-wise maturity explains why there's no power ballad on the album, with the lower songs like "That's Where You Take Me" and "When I Found You" still having a bit of a swing to them. In true Britney album style, "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" is the obligatory rock cover of the Joan Jett classic. Winding the album down, "Before The Goodbye" is a Hi-NRG powered track (in the style of Dana International), which would make an excellent Eurovision entry given the chance. While this album might suggest a slight shift in musical direction for Britney, there's plenty of material on here that will appeal even to the most conservative Spears fans. --John Galilee

5.0 out of 5 stars Britney genre swings beautifully! 6 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
1. I'm A Slave 4 U: The Neptunes (who have worked most recently with Usher, P.Diddy, *NSYNC, Busta Rimes and the list goes on) bring amazing minimalistic beats and jerks to show off a completely new side to Britney. It’s fresh, funky and perfect to introduce the her new side, you will probably find American fans treasuring it more than Europeans fans. 10/10
2. Overprotected: A typical pop song produced by her first producer Max Martin which I would call the "safe" single. Old fans will cherish this one - but no new ground covered here. You will probably find her remixing it for her American audience. 7/10
3. Lonely: A true gem amongst gems. Britney almost raps in the beginning and end to this one. The track was produced by Michael Jackson's latest go-to man Rodney Jerkins who brings an amazing backtrack - very good. I would say I very good contender as her 4th or 5th single. 10/10
4. I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman: A well written, sung and produced ballad co-written by Dido. Britney is at her best at 2'19" showing she has the voice not just the look. 9/10
5. Boys: The 2nd Neptunes' produced track. If described in one word it would be "sexy". Fast and furious beats blended perfectly with a well written lyrics about Britney meeting boys at a club and how they turn her on. This could be compared (with some imagination) to Madonna's "Erotica" lyrically. I can’t wait to see a video to this one – she will no doubt get mothers demonstrating outside Jive records 10/10
6. Anticipating: This happy feel good song which is surprisingly good considering it sounds fairly cheesy in the first 5 seconds. Britney used a completely new producer for this one and she also co-wrote the lyrics bringing some real personal meaning to it.

Britney Spears was always my favourite singer. I sort of went off her last year. When she released I'm A Slave 4 U, I thought it was the worst song she had ever recorded. I hated Britney! There was no way I was ever gonna buy the new album. Then she released Overprotected. I thought it was very good but not good enough for me to buy the album. Then I heard I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman and I was blown away!!! Gone was the slinky I'm A Slave 4 U, gone was the bland Overprotected. I finally realised here was a girl changing into a woman. People are going to have to realise that. She can't stay in a school uniform or red catsuit all her life. I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman was enough to convince me to buy her third album and what a shock I got. It is the best work she has ever done. It's so mature and good for her age and she wrote 5 tracks herself. I own her previous two albums and I have to say this is better than both of them. This is the type of album that you can listen to all the way through and not have to skip a track.
I'm A Slave 4 U (8/10) - This has grown on me since it was released. A catchy R'n'B track.
Overprotected (9/10) - Another good pop song from Britney. Again, this has grown on me.
Lonely (10/10) - Absolutely fantastic. Sounds a lot like a Janet Jackson track. It sounds like Don't Go Knockin' On My Door from the second album.
I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman (10/10) - A fantastic ballad - her best, in fact. This has become a huge hit all over the world - especially in the UK where it entered at No.2 and became her biggest single since Oops!...I Did It Again.
Boys (10/10) - A great R'n'B track. Better than I'm A Slave 4 U. My friends say it sounds like a song a stripper would dance to!

This album is very different to anything Britney has ever done before - it's better!!! A lot of people say this album is rubbish but Britney deserves a pat-on-the-back for being so daring as to break away from her trademark poppy formula, even if it isn't as successful as her last two albums. Britney's first album sold 22,000,000 and her second sold 20,000,000. This third, and best, album has sold 14,000,000 but I think it'll sell more because it's only being around for eight months. Tracks like I'm A Slave 4 U really get things going with her new R'n'B sound which we later hear in her new single, Boys. Britney still manages to maintain her poppy signiture with tracks such as Overprotected, Anticipating and Cinderella. There is only one ballad on the whole album - I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman. This was a big hit in the UK and deserved to be because it's just amazing!!!I Love Rock 'N' Roll is a cover version and is well done. Bombastic Love and Let Me Be are two short tracks that are more R'n'B pop than just pop.
So what you waiting for? Buy this album NOW!!!!!!
