Ken Tucker Reviews ‘In The Zone’ By Britney Spears

Britney Spears 'In The Zone'

Entertainment Weekly’s Ken Tucker reviewed Britney Spears’ new album ‘In the Zone’ for NPR’s ‘Fresh Air’.

“At this stage of her career, Britney inspires sympathy,” Tucker opined. “A mixture of pity and guarded admiration. Not so much that I can summon anything more than dismay at her collaboration on a piece of soft porn with of all people the gentle vegan Moby.”

He added, “ seems to exist in the same experience limiting bubble that Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson had been closed off by. Like Elvis, she’s a southerner whose first instinct is to be polite in interviews, and to feel intellectually inferior to her handlers. Like Jackson, she seems to be trapped in a kind of eternal adolescence. She may have just turned 21, but she still thinks it’s daring to be naughty and rebellious. The sad this is the way she has to announce her outrageousness by getting R. Kelly to write a song for her that uses that word as its title.”

    That was the worst review I’ve ever “heard” in my life. How typical of a writer that works for Entertainment Weekly to write a review with music playing in the background. A true writer would be able to get his or her point across about the album without having to constantly refer back to the music itself. Once again Ken Tucker proves that he knows zero about music and even less about writing.

    What kind of review was that. I don’t even know if its a good or bad review. and when you do a review… you usually don’t play music clips longer than what you have to say.

    Even though he did say some nice things, I can’t help to dismiss the review. It was so stupid.

  5. Xtina-Dirrty says:

    What a confusing review… but since it’s Britney’s I can confidently say it was a BAD one.

    This just in, Britney sold 500,000 copies. She lost 250,000 fans in a year. What baffles me is that,so there are 500,000 teenyboppers roaming a streets. Very scary.
