Jive Recording artist Britney Spears is set to release her 4th album, In The Zone on November 18. The first single "Me Against The Music" features Madonna. Britney Spears co-wrote 7 of the 13 songs on the album. Some of the producers/writers on the album include Moby ("Early Mornin'"), Bloodshy & Avant ("Showdown"), Guy Sigsworth ("Everytime") and R. Kelly ("Outrageous").
However coy she might be in her public statements, Britney Spears leans more than a bit toward the provocative on In the Zone. Less concerned with aiming at the mainstream radio dial than in the first days of her career, she and her collaborators make this as street and club ready a record as possible. The opening duet with Madonna, "Me Against the Music," is worthy, but the bigger superstars presence serves almost less as a performance than a key to Britneys intentions: as Madonna did on albums such as Erotica , Ray of Light, and Music, shes out to bend current trends to her needs. R. Kelly, Moby, and Ying Yang Twins all provide stirring moments that draw on everything from Bollywood to Southern hip-hop, while one of the most impressive tracks, "Touch of My Hand," joins the proud tradition of Cyndi Laupers "She Bop." She still lacks a fully formed artistic vision of her own, but Zone, with its many get-free anthems, puts her much closer. --Rickey Wright

(I Got That) Boom Boom: 4/5, Great party song! I find the Ying Yang Twins slightly annoying on the song, though.
Showdown: 5/5, I love this song! Very hot!
Breathe on Me: 5/5, The sexiest song of Britney's career. This would've been an incredible single.
Early Mornin': 5/5, Great dance song!
Toxic: 5/5, One of the best, if not the best, pop song of the 2000's.
Outrageous: 5/5, I love dancing around to this song! The beat is infectious!
Touch Of My Hand: 5/5, Probably my favorite non single from the album. This song is very well done.
The Hook Up: 5/5, Fun dance song!
Shadow: 5/5, Beautiful song! The lyrics are wonderful and her voice really shines on this song.
Brave New Girl: 3/5, I don't think this song fits the album. The leaked outtakes from ITZ are better than this song, in my opinion.
Everytime: 5/5, My favorite Britney ballad. I love the lyrics and her voice sounds beautiful.
Me Against The Music (Rishi Rich's Desi Kulcha Remix): 3/5, It's okay. I don't think it was worthy of being on the standard tracklist.
The Answer: 5/5 This song is really unique! I love the funky beat. This would've been better on the standard tracklist than BNG.
Don't Hang Up: 5/5, I love this song! It reminds me a little of That's Where You Take Me.
Toxic (The electropop WW#1 smash. About being addicted to a bad boy. Britney's vocals are very sultry & seductive)
Showdown (Electropop song about makeup sex)
Breathe On Me (Trip-hop/Trance song about being so sexually in tune with someone you don't even need to touch each other to climax, just breathe. Great sensual vocals)
The Hook Up (Dancehall song about hooking up)
Everytime (Haunting ballad about a failed relationship with gentle, fragile vocals. Britney wrote this one practically by herself)
(I Got That) Boom Boom (Britney sounds great and the beat is ok, but the Yin-yang twins, who are heavily featured on the track, ruin it)
Brave New Girl (Too Disney sounding and doesn't fit with the rest of the album beat-wise, but lyrically, it's in the zone, considering it's about a girl who goes just to pick up a guy).
-Me against the Music: Madonna and Britney rock the house! Excellent choice as first single, hip hop and pop go well together.
-Boom Boom: I would like this song alot more without the constant rapper yelling into the microphone about how britney should shake her ass! enough already! let her sing. But, i know for a fact that the R & B fans will like this song alot.
-Showdown:It's very sexual in the sense well, the whole song is about make up sex. And you would probably think right away that it's a bad song, but it not. This song has a calm beat and is very fun to sing to believe it or not.
-Breathe On Me: Woah! this song is awesome! It's going to be a very fun single and European audiences are gonna lurve the tone and mood. Once again, calm song, great beat. We don't need to touch, just breathe...
-Early Mornin': Hit or Miss? Errr, it's not the best song on the album, but it's a hit. Moby helps support Britney's new provocative approach with a song about bein' a bad girl. EM is cute, not that great, but a nice song to put on during commercial break of sex and the city.
-Toxic: Mwahahaha! This song will be loved by everyone! You anti-brits can't hide! Come on sing it with me! You're toxic, I'm slippin' under, taste of a poisen paradise, I'm addicted to you and don't ya know that your toxic! Reminds me of one of those comic book hero shows. You will love this song, promise.
-Outrageous: This not so hidden message in this song: I'm Britney Spears, I'm hot and I can probably buy the city of Los Angelos. Hip hop fits her quite well
-Touch of My Hand: It got these words in it that could make u slightly uncomfortable, but when ur home alone and in ur room listen to ITZ, turn up this song. The smooth foreign sound and carefully placed words make the song really quite fabulous.
-Hook up: Admit it, this song will make you shake it at the club or just lip sync around the house. It's a club song, it's fun and groovy, probably not ur favorite song on the album but it's def. one of my top 5.
-Shadow: Meaningful ballad and very pop. Listen closely, such excellent sound.
-Brave New Girl: Britney raps! She raps! it's quite funny and quite cool, she sounds like she had a good time making this song. Very upbeat party music!
-Everytime: She wrote this two years ago in Germany, obviously after the break up with Timberlake. This ballad was written by her and will so grab at your heart.
-MATM Remix: It's ok, i like the original version of the song better.
~*(Bonus tracks if u decide to go for the Aus/UK Album)*~
The Answer: P.diddy works it! Britney's more hip hop song of the album, i highly suggest paying the extra buck for this song.
Don't Hang Up: Back to olden baby one more time days, except better. Once again, on an exclusive song she reaches her potential and stretches those vocal chords. This song proves Spears still has the X factor.
