Britney Spears' mum loves her new material so much, listening to it makes her cry.

The sexy singer's fourth album IN THE ZONE hits shops next month (NOV03), but proud mother LYNNE has had a privileged sneak preview - and she gives it a rave review.

Lynne says, "I haven't heard the whole album yet, but I already know which song I like the best. It is one of the ballads she wrote when she was away in Europe. It is so beautiful, I cry when I hear it."

But she promises the LP isn't just a tear-jerker, adding, "The album in general is really more upbeat. She wants people to have a good, positive feeling from listening to her music."
