Quote

I think it's a great album, but maybe it's not as timeless and iconic as Blackout in some aspects. It shines because of Toxic, but there's so much more in the album that people would like had they been released as singles. 

 

Final Verdict: Excellent

HELL NO.

There I said it. Me Against the Music, while a great album opener with an iconic music video, should have been a promotional single / teaser.

I would release Brinny's 'Ray of Light' aka Brave New Girl first, followed by Toxic, then Breathe on Me as the third worldwide single, Touch of My Hand fourth, and Everytime as the final single.

 

2. Which song do you think is the worst from the album or your least favourite? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 5

I don't really hate any song in particular, but one song I always skip and don't really look for is Outrageous. 2/5

 

1. Did you just say that Brave New Girl, of every songs, Brave-New-Girl shoud have been the lead single of the album?

2. Outrageous is one of my top 3 of the album :tifflmao:

  1. Do you think the selected singles were apt? If no, then how would you have done it? I think Outrageous shouldn't have been a single at all and they should've pushed for Breathe On Me, and then Don't Hang Up.
  2. Which song do you think is the worst from the album or your least favourite? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 5. Outrageous, 2/5.
  3. How do you think the album did lyrically? Rate on a scale of 1 to 5. 4/5.
  4. Which is your favourite video from the album? Rate it on a scale of 1 to 5. Me Against the Music, 5/5.

1. Would never have gone for MATM as it was very basic. So was Madonna:demi: Thankful we got the choreo though, but the song itself is not first single material. Would’ve gone for Early Mornin, or Breathe on Me, aside from that the signles picked were good choices. Instead of Outrageous, BOM would’ve been a perect finisher before Everytime though. Hard because this album has so many bops.

 

2. Brave New Girl 2/5 it was very experimental, sure, but it doesn’t belong on this album. Strongest Love wouldve been a better choice gays:bedtime:

 

3. Lyrically, it is hands down her most mature album to that point. She talked about ***, ************, in very mature ways rather than just saying come take me from behind (looking at you over to you now)

It gave us good mature songs that Britney wrote like Everytime, Shadow and Touch of my hand. I really want her go this mature for whatever piece of music she does next. So 

 

4. Favorite video - Toxic, Idk have anything to say tbh 5/5

 

5. This is Britney at her best and most experimental, with her mature piece to date. Co-writing half of the album, Britney shows us she is more than just a blonde bombshell, and is in fact more than a manufactured popstar.

Great review but would you please care to mention what rating on 1 to 5 you would give the lyrical content of the album?

Don't Hang Up : 2.75/5

Overall sound: 4/5 (although tbh I'd probably give it a 4.5 as opposed to just a 4 lol)

Physical outlook: 5/5

Top 3 songs: Toxic, Everytime, Don't Hang Up

  1. Do you think the selected singles were apt? If no, then how would you have done it? - I would have swapped Me Against the Music and Toxic (Toxic as lead single, Me Against the Music as second single) and had either Boom Boom, Breathe On Me or Touch Of My Hand as a fourth single instead of Outrageous
  2. Which song do you think is the worst from the album or your least favourite? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 5 - I know a lot might disagree with me, but I've never been a massive fan of The Hook Up. I don't hate the song, but I don't think it's that great. But I do enjoy the Onyx Hotel Tour performance of it, I think the song really comes alive there. I'd give it a 2.8 or 3/5.
  3. How do you think the album did lyrically? Rate on a scale of 1 to 5 - 4.5/5, lyrics are slightly improved over Britney's first three albums but still not perfect. However, you can tell that her lyrics and the songwriting has become more progressive with this album, especially in songs such as Touch Of My Hand and Everytime.
  4. Which is your favourite video from the album? Rate it on a scale of 1 to 5 - Toxic, 5/5, simply iconic.
  5. If you were to give the album a short 2 line review, what would it be? Britney's most experimental and adventurous album ever, Britney explores a variety of different genres in this album and becomes more involved with the recording and writing process. A mature step up from her previous three albums. Responsible for one of her biggest hits (Toxic) and one of her best ballads (Everytime).

  1. Do you think the selected singles were apt? If no, then how would you have done it?
    Yes and no. I could've gone without MATM and Outrageous.
    This is how I would've done it: 
    Toxic
    Breathe on Me
    Boom Boom
    Everytime
    Showdown

     
  2. Which song do you think is the worst from the album or your least favourite? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 5
    I'm biased, I love every song but if I had to pick one then it would be Shadow. I still rate it a 3.5/5 but I just find myself skipping this one the most.
     
  3. How do you think the album did lyrically? Rate on a scale of 1 to 5
    I think it did a 5/5. Most experimental lyrics in my opinion
     
  4. Which is your favourite video from the album? Rate it on a scale of 1 to 5
    Toxic 5/5
     
  5. If you were to give the album a short 2 line review, what would it be?
    Iconic, experimental and 2000's best pop album.

  • Do you think the selected singles were apt? If no, then how would you have done it?

I do, even though imo MATM is her weakest lead single, I think the fact that Madonna, queen of pop was featured in it makes it the obvious choice to be the lead. The only thing I would change is to have more singles. BOM and TOMH after Outrageous with a hot, **** concept for both. They would be released together. BOM in the US and TOMH in Europe 

  • Which song do you think is the worst from the album or your least favourite? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 5

Lyrically I would give it a 4

  • Which is your favourite video from the album? Rate it on a scale of 1 to 5

Toxic 5

  • If you were to give the album a short 2 line review, what would it be?

Britney Spears gets in the naughty zone. Britney steps in new genre territories in this new sound and dips into an urban adventure.

  5. If you were to give the album a short 2 line review, what would it be? - It is the Album of the Century and Grammys would deal.

Madonna basic? Did you actually type that or did you inexplicably get possessed by lack of logic?

1. Do you think the selected singles were apt? If no, then how would you have done it?

YES. The single choices were spot on. My only complaint is that "Breathe On Me" was never released as a single, but I know it's because of her knee injury.

2. Which song do you think is the worst from the album or your least favourite? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 5

There's literally no bad songs on this album, which makes it her best. There's songs for everyone to enjoy!

However, my personal least favorite is "Early Mornin'" which I'd rank a 3.

3. How do you think the album did lyrically? Rate on a scale of 1 to 5

I feel like the lyrics on this album are tounge-n-cheek, clever, and heartfelt. Like I said, this album has various genres and talks about various topics. We all know Britney was heavily invovoled in the writing, producing, and overall structure of this record and it really shows. I would rank the lyrics on this album a solid 3. 

4. Which is your favourite video from the album? Rate it on a scale of 1 to 5

My favorite video is Me Against The Music. I love Madonna too and I was so happy Britney got her dream come true to work with her idol. This video also features some of her best dancing in her career. 

5. If you were to give the album a short 2 line review, what would it be?

This record has a flavor for everyone to enjoy, and it's genre filled with Pop, Hip-Hop, Regee, Ballads, Trance, etc.

This is, imo, her best album. I looove Blackout, but it's one step behind ITZ for me. ITZ is just a maaaasterpiece. 

  1. Do you think the selected singles were apt? If no, then how would you have done it? Toxic was obviously amazing and iconic, Everytime is a beautiful ballad, MATM is kind of weak as a single but the music video is great so... but I don't agree with Outrageous as a single. I think I Got That Boom Boom with an amazing music video ft the Ying Yang Twins would have been BOMB!! But that's the only thing I would change. 
  2. Which song do you think is the worst from the album or your least favourite? Rate them on a scale of 1 to 5. I think the weakest song on the album is Brave New Girl, which I would rate a 3, but it's still a cute bop. Maybe more suited on the ''Britney'' album though. 
  3. How do you think the album did lyrically? Rate on a scale of 1 to 5. A STRONG 4. The lyrics on TOMH, BOM, Everytime, etc. And the dance songs are also really good lyrically, in my opinion. 
  4. Which is your favourite video from the album? Rate it on a scale of 1 to 5. Me Against The Music. It's a 5 from me. It did what it needed to do :)  the choreo in the video is some of the hardest she has ever done, she looks BOMB, the outfits are BOMB and the setting of the shoot is cool and fit's the vibe of the song. 
  5. If you were to give the album a short 2 line review, what would it be? In The Zone is an amazing, vibey, innovative album which experiments with a lot of different sounds and makes it work!
