Britney Spears was credited with leading the revival of teen pop. The Daily Yomiuri reported that ''"critics have hailed her as the most gifted teenage pop idol for many years, but Spears has set her sights a little higher-she is aiming for the level of superstardom that has been achieved by Madonna and Janet Jackson."''
Rolling Stone wrote: ''"Britney Spears carries on the classic archetype of the rock & roll teen queen, the dungaree doll, the angel baby who just has to make a scene."''
Rami Yacoub who co-produced Spears's debut album with lyricist Max Martin commented, ''"I know from Denniz Pop and Max's previous productions, when we do songs, there's kind of a nasal thing. With N' Sync and the Backstreet Boys, we had to push for that mid-nasal voice. When Britney did that, she got this kind of raspy, sexy voice."''
Chuck Taylor of Billboard observed, ''"Spears has become a consummate performer, with snappy dance moves, a clearly real-albeit young-and funkdified voice ... "(You Drive Me) Crazy", her third single ... demonstrates Spears' own development, proving that the 17-year-old is finding her own vocal personality after so many months of steadfast practice."''
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic referred to her music as a ''"blend of infectious, rap-inflected dance-pop and smooth balladry."''
Sputnikmusic writer Amanda Murray noted the album ''"offers a marker for Spears' progression as an artist, as a celebrity, and as a woman."''
In 2010, the album was included in the book "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die."
Spears became an international pop culture icon immediately after launching her recording career.
Rolling Stone magazine wrote: ''"One of the most controversial and successful female vocalists of the 21st century," she "spearheaded the rise of post-millennial teen pop ... Spears early on cultivated a mixture of innocence and experience that broke the bank".''
Spears is listed by the Guinness World Records as having the ''"best-selling album by a teenage solo artist".''
Melissa Ruggieri of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported, ''"She's also marked for being the best-selling teenage artist. Before she turned 20 in 2001, Spears sold more than 25 million albums worldwide."''
Barbara Ellen of The Observer has reported: ''"Spears is famously one of the 'oldest' teenagers pop has ever produced, almost middle aged in terms of focus and determination. Many 19-year-olds haven't even started working by that age, whereas Britney, a former Mouseketeer, was that most unusual and volatile of American phenomena — a child with a full-time career. While other little girls were putting posters on their walls, Britney was wanting to be the poster on the wall. Whereas other children develop at their own pace, Britney was developing at a pace set by the ferociously competitive American entertainment industry".''
"...Baby One More Time" is Britney Spears' most successful album to date, with worldwide sales of 25 million copies, and also the best-selling album by a teenage solo artist. It was ranked as the 41st best album of all time on the Billboard Top 200 Albums of All Time.
