  • Summary: This is the third album for Justin Timberlake & co. But will it be the last?

  1. But, to get right down to it, "Celebrity" is fun, like its predecessors.
  2. Celebrity is a few good songs short of becoming a new gold pop standard (Michael Jackson's all-hits Thriller still holds that distinction), but with its well-balanced dance track-to-ballad ratio and uniformly infectious grooves, it does come within moonwalk striking distance...
  3. First, the good news: 'Celebrity' is pretty damn fine too.... The bad news is that 'Celebrity' definitely shows signs of that discontent that all boyband members begin to feel after a while, and it's this which might well put some fans off.
  4. 'N Sync reminds us why boy bands were put on this earth in the first place: to have a good time.
  5. ''Celebrity'' may be the consummate teen-pop experience: It has the R&B swipes, the ballads, the grasps at artistic self-expression, and the requisite Europop.
  6. Even when it isn't actually good, this is quality froth. [Sep 2001, p.114]
  7. 'N Sync's latest offering of threadbare cookie crunch...

    N'Sync just gets better and better. My kids introduced me to them with their first CD, and we've been fans ever since. When we bought the Celebrity CD, I listened to it several times while on a road trip, and liked it better and better each time. My favorite songs?: 1)Gone, 2) Game Over. Expand

    "Celebrity" is not their best effort, but it's still a pretty good pop album. Though I would've liked it much better if they stick to the "No Strings Attached" formula. Expand

    This album was horrible from beginning to end. It's a shame music is turning to crap like this instead of some of the really great bands out there like RHCP, Pearl Jam, Weezer, and the Kenny Wayne Shepard band. Expand
