In the Zone [DVD Audio/Bonus Videos]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
On her self-titled 2001 disc, a blossoming Britney Spears proclaimed, "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman." My, my how times have changed. No longer, er, straddling the Lolita line between girl-next-door and femme fatale, here Ms. Spears lets loose like a spring break coed caught on one of those Girls Gone Wild videos. The hot-and-bothered bombshell follows up her jaw-dropping smooch with Madonna at MTV's Video Music Awards with the pulsating club-thumper "Me Against the Music," a duet with the Material Mom. The rest of the disc follows suit, as Spears moans and purrs through racy dance tracks such as the R. Kelly–produced "Outrageous," which pokes fun at Brit's ...

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
On her self-titled 2001 disc, a blossoming Britney Spears proclaimed, "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman." My, my how times have changed. No longer, er, straddling the Lolita line between girl-next-door and femme fatale, here Ms. Spears lets loose like a spring break coed caught on one of those Girls Gone Wild videos. The hot-and-bothered bombshell follows up her jaw-dropping smooch with Madonna at MTV's Video Music Awards with the pulsating club-thumper "Me Against the Music," a duet with the Material Mom. The rest of the disc follows suit, as Spears moans and purrs through racy dance tracks such as the R. Kelly–produced "Outrageous," which pokes fun at Brit's paparazzi-documented lifestyle prior to her short-lived marriage, and the come-hither "Showdown." On the latter track, the southern belle coos, "I'll let you touch me if you want / I see your body rise, rise." Well, guess she's really not that innocent. Things get even more explicit on "Touch of My Hand," where Brit sings about the joys of self-love. Oops, she did it again! Although her thin, nasal vocals have never been her most valuable asset, on In the Zone Spears' delivery has noticeably matured, especially on the whispery, Kylie Minogue–reminiscent "Breathe on Me" and the ambient, Moby-produced "Early Mornin'," on which a raspy-voiced Spears sings and raps about her naughty late-night escapades ("Passed out on the couch and yawning / Just walked in and it's early mornin'). Even "Everytime," the requisite power ballad and alleged ode to her lost love Justin, sounds inspired. While In the Zone is sure to alienate many of Spears' younger fans (and rightly so), it successfully documents her growth into a young woman awakening to her sexuality and a pop star unafraid to exploit it.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
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. [The album was issued in numerous versions featuring add-ons like DVD audio sound, extra remixes, or bonus video content.]
Rolling Stone - Jon Pareles
This time, Spears promises to follow through on her come-ons: "I'll let you touch me if you want," she husks in the clever pop-dancehall "Showdown."
Vibe - Jason King
1/2 This is a supremely confident dance record that also illustrates Spears's development as a songwriter -- she wrote seven of the 13 songs.
Blender
Stylistically, In the Zone recalls various stages of Madonna -- there's a hint of "Oh, Father" on the better of the record's two ballads, "Shadow" (cowritten and produced by Avril Lavigne hitmakers the Matrix), and a little bit of Erotica's sweaty, layered funk throughout. Mim Udovitch
