Synopsis

Amazon.com
Despite millions of album sales, 'N Sync are an obvious No. 2 to label mates the Backstreet Boys. Fittingly, they try harder--too hard, in fact--through most of their second non-Christmas disc, No Strings Attached. The quintet and Strings' dozen-plus producers fill these 47 minutes with bland ballads by Diane Warren and Richard Marx, mildly funky workouts like a cover of Johnny Kemp's "Just Got Paid" and the muddled "Space Cowboy," and gimmicks such as "Digital Get Down" that hardly lend credence to whatever career-longevity claims they might want to lodge. This is a guaranteed smash, but judged on the merits of its weak material and less than compelling vocal performances, No Strings Attached should be long forgotten by the time the Backstreeters' next CD arrives. --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

This CD rocks!

"I have to admit that I used to be a boy band hater. That is, until "No Strings Attached" came out and I heard the first single, "Bye bye bye." From then on, I knew that I loved *Nsync and that I had to buy the CD. I am the kind of person that hates to have to skip songs on CD's so I was a little skeptical about this one. But as soon as I put the CD in my player and listened to the songs, I knew that I wouldn't be doing any song skipping. I would definatly recommend this CD to anyone thinking about buying it!"
In Sync with New Sound

"Most people are surprised when I tell them I listen to NSync. I don't blame them, considering my diverse taste in music. No Strings Attached is certainly different from their debut album, which is not to say this is a bad thing. Quite the contrary. It took me a day to get used to their new sound. NSA is a lot funkier, and every track is a package bursting with energy. Songs like "It's Gonna Be Me" and "Bringin' Da Noise" (co-penned by JC himself) are just Top 40 hits waiting to happen. One of the bonus tracks "I'll Never Stop" is reminiscent of the pre-NSA era.Fear not, just as NSA is filled with catchy make-you-wanna-dance numbers, it has its share of pretty slow ones. With a little help from Richard Marx on "This I Promise You", and hit-spewing Diane Warren on "That's When I'll Stop Loving You", NSA is an album with something for everyone (who likes NSync, that is). NSync get to show off a more mature side and wonderful vocal harmony on the acapella "I Thought She Knew". Speaking of mature, "Digital Getdown" paints quite a picture.Get the CD and listen for yourself. I did and I love it :)"
'NSYNC I love this CD

"I have been an NSYNC fan since the beginning and No Strings' is even better than the 1st CD. The change in style is cool and I would put the new sound against any other band today! I used to be a Rage and Pantera fan but NSYNC has brought a change! BYE,BYE,BYE"
