First thing I took a look at were the music videos. "Drive Me Crazy", "Baby, One More Time" and "Sometimes" are all presented in full-screen and look quite good, with impressive clarity and razor sharp images without any problems. What is really nice though on the music videos, was that you're offered the choice in terms of sound of either 2.0 or the full 5.1. 5.1, especially on "Baby, One More Time", sounded really quite excellent. All of the songs really sound crisp, clear, rich and carry a very nice amount of bass.
When I first was looking around on this DVD, I thought it was simply a compilation of various tidbits(videos, notes, etc), but I realized that the main feature on this DVD is actually a 55 minute documentary on the history of the singer. The documentary is fairly interesting, with Spears talking about the documentary footage or various photos that are shown. Everything is split into chapters, with a look at the making of the 3 music videos; recording the album; a look at some concert footage and more. The last part is footage from Spears's Disney Channel concert. This can also be viewed separately. Chapter selection for the documentary is also fully animated.
Onto everything else; there is a 15 minute "behind-the-scenes" look with interviews with Spears and a look at her recording in the studio.Read more ›
The music videos are mixed in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. The music video audio mixes really threw my ears the first time I heard them because they do some extreme panning and circle the room with with the sound. For example, they isolate the mix in one channel and skip around the room during certain musical breaks. The end result sounds like they crammed the entire mix into a single channel. I think it would have sounded smoother and less abrupt if they isolated a few vocal or effects tracks and moved those around the room instead of the entire mix. Doing this would probably require more extensive remixing of the original tracks. But it's nice of the DVD producers to try to do something cool with the capabilities of Dolby Digital Surround.
There are also some in-concert performances from the Disney Channel. These performances are both ballads and do not showcase--what I think is--Britney's better talent: dancing. Her vocal and even the backup vocal performances are not anything to praise in these clips. (If you listen carefully, you can hear her live vocal performance off-key with her pre-recorded vocal double.) During "Born to Make You Happy", Britney sings to a kid who was invited on stage; the kid looks either so in shock or scared to death as Britney sings to him.Read more ›
P.S. If anyone knows some answers to the trivia game I really would like to know as I've tried about more than 20 times (I even recorder my answers to avoid answering them in the same pattern) and I'm only positive to knowing at least 4 or 5.

Britney at this time was a girl, developing into a woman. Her handlers crafted an image of a girl who is discovering her own sex appeal, while singing sugar coated pop songs. Read morePublished on May 25, 2009 by D. Sun
