Mr. Fountain obviously has no idea what he is talking about. N Sync isn't about the musicianship, and his implication they had any real hand in that is absurd. What this album is pure, unadulterated bubble-gum pop, and arguably the best of the century. "Bye Bye Bye" and "It's Gonna Be Me" are both fantastic, and while there are some terrible songs, overall its an enjoyable collection of pop tunes to blast while you play "Barbie: Equestrian Fun."
*NSYNC were rulers of the charts at one time. Now, they're merely a guilty pleasure for some, and are reviled by most. I can't imagine why: they make pop music, and they do it fairly well. No Strings Attached is their most complete album from end-to-end. By complete meaning that on the whole, it was better than many of its peers in the quality department. Many pop albums of the late-90s, early-2000s were based solely off of the strength of one, maybe two songs. For what it's worth, nearly every song on No Strings Attached is enjoyable. Pick this album up sometime.
