Album Review

If 2001's Britney was a transitional album, capturing Spears at the point when she wasn't a girl and not yet a woman, its 2003 follow-up, In the Zone, is where she has finally completed that journey and turned into Britney, the Adult Woman. Like her peer Christina Aguilera, Britney equates maturity with transparent sexuality and the pounding sounds of nightclubs, but since she's not as dirty as Xtina, her spin is a little different. Where Christina comes across like a natural-born skank, Britney is the girl next door cutting loose at college, drinking and smoking and dancing and sexing just a little too recklessly, since this is the first time she can indulge herself. And that's what In the Zone is — Britney indulging herself, desperate to prove that she's an adult. She has been freed from her musical parent, Max Martin, who is absent for the first time from a Spears album, choosing instead to play the field and work with a bunch of different collaborators, including Madonna, Moby, the Matrix, Trixster, Roy "Royalty" Hamilton, Bloodshy & Avant, and R. Kelly. Since she's so determined to be a woman, not a girl, she has completely shed the sugarcoated big hooks and sappy love songs that drove her stardom, concentrating on music that glides by on mellow grooves or hits hard with its hip-hop beats. It's all club-ready, but despite some hints of neo-electro and the Neptunes, it doesn't quite sound modern — it sounds like cuts from 1993 or Madonna's Bedtime Stories and Ray of Light. Production-wise, these tracks are not only accomplished but much more varied than any of her previous albums — in particular, Moby's "Early Mornin'" has a sleek feel, Mark Taylor's "Breathe on Me" is alluring, and the Bloodshy & Avant productions, "Showdown" and "Toxic," are irresistible ear candy in what is surely Britney's most ambitious, adventurous album to date.

Customer Reviews


The entire album is phenomenal. With 3 top ten hits and a total of 13 rocking songs, this album is a must have for any pop fan!


this album is spears most personal album, it's sensual, personal, alluring, and undeniably sexy. she raises the bar for dance/pop and out shines all her industry peers. has co-wrote more of this album, and her signature funk-pop is back and bolder than ever with outrageous, and showdown. breathe on me and touch of my hand are the stand out tracks, and britney's voice compliments all of the trance/club arrangements. this album spawned some of her best single including toxic and everytime. the only album to win her a grammy (best dance track- toxic) this is truly her best, most auto-biographical album to date.

her best album to date

this is her best album (blackout is the second best album). with the catchy first single me against the music and danceable songs like the hook up, toxic, (i got that) boom boom and outrageous. and the very sexually suggestive song like touch of my hand and breathe one me. and one her best ballad songs ,showing that she really has talent in songs, like everytime and shadow. and the club friendly beats of the songs brave new girl, showdown, and early mornin'. i mean who doesn't love this album???

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

More than any other single artist, Britney Spears was the driving force behind the return of teen pop in the late '90s. The blockbuster success of the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys certainly paved the way for her own commercial breakthrough, but Spears didn't just become a star — she was a bona fide pop phenomenon. Not only did she sell millions of records, she was a media fixture regardless of what she was (or wasn't) doing; among female singers of the era (many of whom followed in her footsteps),...
