The Daily Express pitted Kylie Minogue’s new album ‘Body Language’, against Britney Spears’ new album ‘In The Zone’, giving each a review, as they are both released on the same day in the UK. Here are the reviews:

‘Body Language’ – Described by Kyles herself as having “less angles and more curves” than her previous work, Body Language is a fantastic, sexy and smart collection of songs that takes pop to a grand new level of sophistication. Consistent, catchy and danceable, this is pop music for grown-ups. ***** 5/5

‘In The Zone’ – Employing a scattergun approach to record-making, Britney here shoots randomly at every fashionable musical style imaginable in the vain hope of scoring a hit. Hip hop, pop, r&b, ballads and even dancehall all get a look in but both the material and her voice aren’t strong enough to carry them. While Justin, Christina and Kylie have managed to take their music to a new level, Britney continues to search for a consistent identity. This is a mess.
** 2/5

Lookalike Leaves Taxi Driver Disappointed

November 5, 2003 – Edinburgh taxi driver told The Glasgow Daily Record he couldn’t believe his eyes when stepped into his cab, but his delight soon turned to disappointment when he realized his passenger was just a professional lookalike. “I knew it wasn’t her when she spoke in an English accent,” he admitted. “I was too much of a gentleman to look at her bottom on the way out.”

    I have a mixed opinion about this review.. On the one hand I do understand what they are saying about Britney and from what I have heard her new album is a mess that jumps from style to style. On the other hand if the first single is any indication then Kylie’s new album really is pop music for grown ups, 45 year old grown ups. The sh** sounds like slowed down disco from 1983. I think both will have to deal with drops in their album sales this year, especially Britney.

    Well Well Well!!!!!!!!!!! I personally will give Britney a 1/2. The 1/2 is for that song “Breathe On Me”. That’s the only good song on the album.

    Britney just tried to copy Christina on having different kind of songs but too bad her voice is to weak to make them sound good Christina sounds great singing any kind of music. damn they only gave that lip-syncing whore Britney a 2 for her album at least Christina has never gotten a 2.

    You know I was NEVER really a Britney fan, the only song I ever really liked of hers was “I’m A Slave For You”, but I have to say I’m impressed of what I’ve heard so far from her new album. To me it just shows she’s maturing as an artist. Yes she does genre-hop a lot on this album, but that’s what I think makes it so good, no one wants an album of the SAME stuff on every track. She has some hot dance tracks, a nice ballad, and some different stuff. I haven’t heard Kylie’s new song, but I think people give Britney a hard time for no reason, her album is definitely not that bad.

    That’s because it sounds like a Kylie song. I like it too, but I think it sounds an awful lot like something Kylie would put out.

    I heard her whole album and I only like 3 songs – Everytime, MATM, and breathe on me. The rest sound the same. I love Kylie and I understand what they mean.Kylie has grown and has made another unique album.

  7. Britney_rocks says:

    Kylie can’t even sing why do you think her songs are always techno-ish?? because she can’t but Britney’s song show cases her voice and it is an awesome song. and when I get Britney’s album I’m not going to skip any tracks! I never like Kylie Minogue she’s to old for my liking anyways. and for the comment about how Christina and Justin have taken their new music to new levels that just piled up crap used old beats from older songs

    Ok screw this — Britney’s new album is so diverse and so catchy, it sounds so trip-hoppy, I love it

    Honestly… What I like about this record is that it is DIVERSE. I read one other bad review, and I didn’t agree, but I understood. This review however is stupid. How is diversity a bad thing? ITZ rocks for the simple fact it has such diverse songs and they all rock. The review means nothing to me. Its reasoning is dumb, so I can easily disregard it. The other review at least had logic to it, even if it was negative. And BTW, today, they debuted a new Britney song on KIIS FM here in Los Angeles, and after two plays, it made the top 9 @ 9 countdown. I Got that Boom Boom was #7 and MATM was #1. That’s two Britney songs on the same countdown, and one of them was on there after 2 previous plays. She is going to hit so big with Boom that it will be all radios play for the next 3 months. yeah!

    I think we all know which album did better. in the zone was HUGE (like all Britney’s albums and body language only did good in Europe (like all Kylie’s albums) I actually liked body language but for some reason, Kylie just can’t sell records in America. Britney has never had that problem-people love Britney all over the world!
