Product Description

N Sync ~ Celebrity

The boy balladeers of 'N Sync have always kept in step with their competition, but with Celebrity, they've entered a different race altogether. Members Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez (who co-wrote and co-produced most of the tracks on this album) have drawn on R&B, hip-hop, and electronica to make a remarkably adult mix. While younger fans will love the disc (it is 'N Sync, after all), older listeners will be surprised and pleased by the Prince-influenced "Gone," the Miami bass beat of "The Two of Us," and the Stevie Wonder harmonica cameo on "Something Like You." The disc only fails in its more predictable territory: the title track's lyrics are hopelessly generic ("Would you be so into me / if I wasn't a celebrity"). The Swedish-pop machine (also behind Britney Spears) cranks out two solid dance tracks ("Tell Me, Tell Me...Baby" and "Just Don't Tell Me That"), but his offerings are hardly as innovative, or as much fun, as the band's own contributions. Overall, Celebrity, is a triumph, and unlike many of their teen-pop peers, the members of 'N Sync (or Timberlake and Chasez, at least) promise solid careers ahead. --Courtney Kemp

When I first heard the cd, I thought I was going to hear 10 Bye,Bye,Bye's and three GMHS's. It was totally not what I expected, and it was great. They have invented a new pop sound...dirty. Oh yeah, they wrote almost every song! So here we go track by track-
1. POP- good song, not sure if the we were ready musically for it. It is the version of the song used in their video.(including the beat-box). 4 out of 5
2. Celebrity- new sound starts here... great song with some hot beats. It's more of a mid-tempo and has a great hook. One of my favorites. 5 out of 5
3. The Game Is Game over- How can a song that samples Pac-man be bad? Creative was to slip digi in to the song(digi,digi, think...)Great idea and it works well. 4 out of 5
4. Girlfriend- different vibe for them, it starts like a rap song(not suprising...Neptunes helped with this one). Overall, good song but new direstion for N'sync...good stuff. 4 out of 5
5. Just The Two of Us- Think Jordan Knight's "Give it to you" and plug in N'sync. The only real pop song(not to dirty) it had some good writing..props to J.C. 4 out of 5
6. Gone- GREAT song. Ballad unlike anything I have heard before. Although it's more of a solo for Justin, it works in the end. Haunting hook and great guitar chord that reels you in. 5 out of 5
7. Tell Me, Tell Me...Baby- Original song. Starts off with some new sound effects and kind of vibes like Michael Jackson's "Scream". Then it pulls into a good up-tempo. I like :) 4 out of 5
8. Up Against The Wall- John Blaze hot. N'sync bringin the Two-step formula to life. Great dance number and again a new sound for them. The whole Disco Ball bit is pretty cool. 5 out of 5
9. See Right Through You- up-tempo sporting the "Look into my eyes..

I had never owned an N'Sync album until "Celebrity", and now I feel obligated to buy the first two albums. I hate to admit it, but I've always been a pop fan since BSB came out with "Quit Playing Games" and other R&B-esque songs. And when N'Sync busted out with "I Want You Back" and "Tearin' Up My Heart", I thought they were the best thing since sliced bread. But I was too chicken to buy their albums because I felt they were a BSB clone. But they've grown musically, because now they're writing their own songs. They've flipped the script a bit and thrown in a lil 2-step ("The Two Of Us", "Up Against The Wall"), dirtier beats ("Pop"), and melodic ballads ("Gone") . Their cool harmonies are reminiscent of Take 6 on the uplifting "Do Your Thing" (a song teenyboppers can't stand). I love "Do Your Thing"'s acapella vibe. I'd say N'Sync's "Celebrity" is a notch better than BSB's "Black & Blue" (which was really good). The only complaints I had was that "Tell Me, Tell Me... Baby" and "Just Don't Tell Me That" sound like "Bye, Bye, Bye" Parts 2 and 3. Even the word "tell" shows up twice in the song titles. And how come Chris, Lance, and Joey don't get any singing parts? At least give them a bridge. I've heard Chris's voice on "Drive Myself Crazy" and he would be a good lead on a ballad. Besides that, I wasn't disappointed by this album. Even if you're evoked to vomit upon the mentioning of their name, N'Sync will force you to like at least one song on their latest effort. Why do pop-hating music fans even bother to bash N'Sync anyway? Didn't they either buy or borrow the album and listen to it in its entirety? That must mean they like "pop" to some degree. Ohterwise, why would they waste their time?

I'm not a conventional fan of the boy band craze, but 'NSync's latest CD, "Celebrity", holds its own as a prototype of today's Pop sound: irresistably catchy, slick, and cross pollinated with other genres to lend it just enough edginess it needs to stay on top of the pop game. Mind you, there's nothing wrong with these traits, especially when it works so well ("Pop", "Tell Me Tell Me, Baby"). This time around, the boys from 'NSync have not only begun to write some of their own material, but they also lend a more distinct R&B influence to "Celebrity", of which their previous effort "No Strings Attached" just began to scratch the surface. Elements of dance techno and electronic squiggles are also thrown in for good measure, and they definitely get kudos for making all of it sound cohesive and accessible enough so as to never alienate their old fans, while certainly snaring some more. It seems this time around they've taken their cue from pop Giants Madonna and Michael Jackson to parlay another fifteen minutes in the Pop landscape. And so far, "Celebrity" succeeds with flying colors, but it also makes you wonder: what else have they got under their sleeve for next time? No matter, just enjoy this for the time being...

The fickleness of American audiences is evident by this group's detractors. Sadly, the expression "Celebrity breeds contempt" holds true by the number of condemnations that appear in this forum, which, thankfully, are in the minority.
As a 40-something listener, I must join the throngs of those that praise this quintet. Sure, I purchased it for my 13-year-old niece, but after giving a listen, I found it to be worthy of a "thumbs up."
This is a pop group that realizes that its success is limited, so the boys are making the best of it by releasing a solid musical treat. The first cut "Pop" sets the foot a-moving with its beat-box rhythms and the determined vocals of lead man Justin Timberlake.
The title cut is a sly wink at those that hover around the famous (Tell me these boys are unaware of the price of fame?). It is one of the best on the album.
"The Game is Over," with its video game sound effects is a lot of fun. It is a perfect tune for the young audience that is the core of the group's fan base. Other danceable tracks include "The Two of Us," "Tell Me, Tell...Baby," and "Just Don't Tell Me That."
The slower paced "Gone," "Something Like You," and "Selfish" on the other hand, will appeal to kids as well as their parents who appreciate a well-written and well-performed ballad.
But, the real triumph (or maybe the real "masterpiece") is the last track "Do Your Thing." This track with its simplistic orchestration (great violin accompaniment), vocals (superbly executed rap near the song's end) and its inspirational lyrics about self-determination and self-assurance is like an appetizer; one is waiting for the entrée. It leaves you with just enough, wanting more.
And, I suppose, that is the intention....
I wonder what their fourth release will be like.
