Overview

"Do you ever wonder why this music gets you high?" inquires Justin Timberlake on "Pop," the bouncy opening track and first single from 'N Sync's much-hyped third disc, Celebrity. Well, the answer to that question is quite simple. 'N Sync's intoxicating mix of pop and R&B almost forces listeners to forget their troubles and get happy. Taking an if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it approach, on Celebrity, Justin, JC, Lance, Chris, and Joey build upon the winning formula of seamless harmonizing, infectious songwriting, polished production, and pop star appeal that sent their previous discs, 'N Sync and No Strings Attached, racing up the charts. This time around, however, the Orlando boys kick their brand of "dirty pop" up a notch with the help of edgier producers such as club music remix king BT (the frenetic "Pop"), Brandy producer Rodney Jerkins (the hip-hop-tinged "Celebrity"), and the Neptunes (the break-beat punctuated "Girlfriend"), an Atlanta production crew who gave a well-deserved makeover to the Backstreet Boys single "The Call." Filling the requisite ballad quota with stirring efficiency are the breathtaking "Selfish," penned and produced by crooner Brian McKnight, and Timberlake's heart-tuggers "Gone" and "Something Like You." The only weak links are "Just Don't Tell Me That," which sounds too much like 'N Sync's mega-hit "Bye, Bye, Bye," and Max Martin's "Tell Me, Tell Me...Baby," which is similar to several singles the pop wunderkind wrote for the Backstreet Boys' Black and Blue. Those minor fumbles aside, with Celebrity, 'N Sync conclusively establish themselves as the charismatic kings of the boy bands. As the fellas rhetorically chime on the disc's sparse, harmony-driven closing track "Do Your Thing": "Are you doing your thing/And doin' it well/Are they lookin' at you hatin'/Saying Oooh." Why yes, indeed.

*N Sync is truly the best boy band around, you really can't call them that anymore though, b/c they have truly proved their individuality with ''Pop''

the first time that i heard this outstanding group of talented men (babes, hunks, hotties, etc.) i was hooked. ever since then i have tried to get all of their CDs. they are the best there is and ever will be no matter what anyone else says. their new CD is going to be awesome and i can't wait to get it! their new song ''pop'' is my favorite so far, and just think...they're only going to get better! ( as if that is possible)

Pop it a totally cool song when i first heard it i was like noway this song is so awsome they really took it a step further than the last album i was really amazed with how far they really took this album If u guys haven't gone to a concert I think you should go to one cause u will walk away more amazed that u did if you went to the NSA concert. I didn't really like Nsync that much untill we went on vacation i was watching nsync on tv and i was like they are so cool i was more of a bsb fan untill i saw nsync on tv one last time the I ditched bsb and went for nsync which i have liked for over 2 years now and i am really surprised how much they have changed.And if any of u want a pen pal please email me

Hey everyone, As you all know NSYNC's third album ''Celebrity'' was released today!! NSYNC has grown musically wise since there last album ''No Strings Attached.'' The songs on this album are awesome, of course, and NSYNC's perfectly pitched pipes shine through in each song! ''Gone,'' one song on the album, showcases their tight harmonies with Justin singing lead vocals! This album is so energetic and is perfect for dancing too...and we all know the guys know how to shake their groove thangs! :) Overall, this album is EXCELLENT!! I LOVE IT!!!! So, check it out and BUY IT!!! hehe :)Thanks and stay *NSYNC everyone! (p.s Congrats to J.C., Justin, Joey, Lance, and Chris for another incredible achievement! I love you guys! God Bless!)

''Pop'' has just preimered here in Pittsburgh. The first time I heard the song I loved it. Everyday after school and before TRL starts I go on line and vote for *Nsync's ''Pop''. Whenever the tickets went on sale I knew I was going and I had to get tickets to the ''Pop Odsessy'' tour. When ever someone picked up the line I started to scream. And I was even more excited when I got the tickets in the mail. P.S. BSB SUCKS & and *NYNC ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

I think that the song ''GONE'' is awesome. I think that *NSYNC is ultra talented and super cute.

I CAN'T WAIT TILL IT COMES OUT!! Their concert in Jacksonville totally rocked and the songs were definatly their best yet. Since I've already heard some of the songs...I reccomend ''Celebrity!!''
Guest More than 1 year ago
it's a smashing c.d. next time they should have a double c.d.one for the parties and then one for the screaming fans.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Once again the guy's of the outstanding and inspirational group of N'SYNC have yet again created an awsome twist to their music, style, and dance all in a positive way.

Hey everyone! I'm 14 and an Irish girl. I think it's easy to say that I'm N-Sync's biggest Irish fan! They aren't the most popular band in Ireland but i LOVE them! And guess what? I've already got Celebrity! I'm amazed at this!I was out shopping at the weekend and in the record shop I found it. I bought it on the 21st of July and it's not released in America til the 24th! What's goin on? I'm really glad to have it however! It's really brilliant! Everyone - GO OUT AND BUY IT!!! If you know why I could have got it already in Ireland please let me know by e-mailing me or posting something here! Thanks! P.S. N-Sync - please come to Ireland!

The Nsync Celebrity album, I think, is a really, really, creative, and awesome new sound that Nsync presents. I especially love the song Pop, and the ending of it is even cooler than the whole song put together. But, I would like to say that even though I am an Nsync fan, I am disgusted at how they copy Michael Jackson, in their dance moves, and in their music. Michael Jackson should deserve more credit, if they're going to continue and use him as an ''influence'' in their music. I might add, MJ first created the sound that you hear in the ending of Pop. Over all, I think that this CD is the best out of all of Nsync's four albums. If you are an Nsync or Michael Jackson fan and would like to have an online ''friend'' to chat with about them, feel free to mail me>> my e-mail addie is above ^ :)

Hi I am a 17 year old girl form Minnesota and I really do Love N-Sync. They have a great time just living it up and are not by any means fake. ''POP'' is one of the best music videos out there, Wayne Isham did a great job. And hey, just to let you know that N-Sync is great they were on 106 and Park on BET, many times on TRL on MTV and have had their own T.V specials. So when someone says that N-Sync is no good and won't last you just ask them when they were the featured guest on TRL.

so is anyone else sick of seeing the usual-'oh my god these boys are hot-i love you justin. and they can like dance and sing at the same time.' How could you insult them like that? You are doing a review for their MUSIC not their BODIES. How can you look past the feeling they put into their music? I mean, I'm not saying that they're not gorgeous. But I'm saying that they have truly amazing voices and the songs they write, co-produce, pick out, WHATEVER are absolutely amazing. Try and not sound SO teeny-ish.

Guest More than 1 year ago
another great album from the five hottest, most talented guys in the business. Well worth the money and the time spent listening. the standout track was ''Gone'' which displays a mournful longing in Justin's voice that suits him perfectly.
