Liking Britney Spears is something that you don't admit to, or at least most don't. My view of her is a matter of "if it's on the radio, it's actually kinda catchy. I'm not buying the album or anything, but the music is pretty decent." (half my readers are now laughing at me.) Imagine my suprise when I turned on this DVD and was really very impressed with the quality of the presentation.
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.

Musical tastes aside, if you like Britney Spears, then you will most likely enjoy this DVD. Britney talks A LOT in this video about how she started in the pop music industry and what it was like to make her videos--with behind-the-scenes footage. If you can't stand to listen to her talk, you can always skip to the three music videos "... Baby One More Time", "Sometimes", and "(You Drive Me) Crazy" (Stop Re-mix).
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.

If you are a fan of Britney Spears you should get this video! It has all her music videos except From the Bottom of My Broken Heart. The interviews are good and they show her on the Disney concert.

This DVD is a must for any Britney fan. I have around 5 DVD's that are about music from other artists (Mariah Carey, Alanis Morissette etc.) and this is the best. As on the video you will see the 50 minute show with (in order of showing) Britney growing up, her recording her first album (you also get to see the making of her song "I Will Be There") then comes the making and viewing of her first three videos and after that you get to see what she thinks about going on tour. After that you see 10 minutes of her performance on Disney's "In Concert" special with her performing "Born To Make You Happy" and "From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart". For those who have a VCR AND a DVD Player YOU SHOULD GET THE DVD! The thing is instead of watching the whole DVD you not only get scene selections (like every DVD does) you also get to see each music video individually (without having to watch the 25-minute behind-the-scenes chapter) and you get to also to go to a special section to just watch the Disney Live songs insted of watching the special too. Other things ONLY available on DVD are a biography, a photo gallery of about 15-20 pictures, a DVD-Rom web link, and a trivia game which if you win you get a secret video. Every Britney fan with a DVD player should buy this.
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.
