  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. ''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.
  5. 'N Sync reminds us why boy bands were put on this earth in the first place: to have a good time.
  6. The quintet has never sounded tighter.

    Celebrity shines brightest when the group matures enough to forget about its image and focus on the tunes. [Aug/Sep 2001, p.126]

    "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 »
