  1. But, to get right down to it, "Celebrity" is fun, like its predecessors.
  2. 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.
  3. 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...
  4. Along with Nelly Furtado and Mandy Moore, 'NSync are paving a new high road for teen pop's future.
  5. 'Celebrity' does have it's moments. Sadly both of them are at the beginning.
  6. ''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.
  7. 'N Sync reminds us why boy bands were put on this earth in the first place: to have a good time.
  8. The quintet has never sounded tighter.
  9. 'N Sync's latest offering of threadbare cookie crunch...
  10. 80
    Celebrity shines brightest when the group matures enough to forget about its image and focus on the tunes. [Aug/Sep 2001, p.126]
  11. Even when it isn't actually good, this is quality froth. [Sep 2001, p.114]

    "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"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. Full Review »

    This was an awsome album, from the 1st song to the last one, they are a very talented group of guys and I can't wait for more. I Still This was an awsome album, from the 1st song to the last one, they are a very talented group of guys and I can't wait for more. I Still think their 2nd album "No Strings Attached" was better.
