Background and development
Prior to becoming t.A.T.u. Yulia and Lena had auditioned as members of Neposedy, a group produced by Ivan Shapolavov and his business partner Alexander Voitinskyi. Shapolavov has said the two girls stood out from the rest of the those that auditioned; however, 14-year old Katina was initially the only one chosen for the band. She sang "It Must Have Been Love" by Swedish pop duo Roxette and later recorded a demo release of "Yugoslavia" for the "1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia". When both Lena and Julia were casted for the group (under the name 'Taty'), they began to record their first record. Then, in 1999 the group released "200 Po Vstrechnoy", which became successful in Poland and Russia. While the album was in development, their producer Alexander Voitinskyi left the production, leaving the album unreleased. However, Shapolavov later signed Elena Kiper as the new co-producer and co-writer for the album.
With the success, Shapovalov decided to sign the group to Interscope and its parent Universal Music Group at the headquarters in Russia. After this, the group decided to called themselves "Tatu". However, an Australian rock band also produced under the name, thus the band later used upper and lower cased letters to distance themselves from the other musicians. t.A.T.u. released their first Russian album under the name "Тату", which is short phrase for Та любит Ту (Ta lyubit Tu)", meaning "this girl loves that girl".
The group started recording the album in Trevor Horn's home studio in London, England and having some recording sessions in Los Angeles, California. When the group were signed and ready for recording, both Yulia and Lena felt it was easy to understand English language. Yulia stated that Martin helped her with pronunciation, while Lena was already speaking English before production of the album. However, during the times recording in studio's, Yulia consistently lost her voice.
While the album was in development, their producer Alexander Voitinskyi left the production, leaving the album unreleased. However, Shapolavov later signed Elena Kiper as the new co-producer and co-writer for the album. Although recording and releasing a sophomore debut album, the band completed their first ever single for release "Ya Soshla S Uma" (Translated: I've Lost My Mind). It was released at the start of 2000.
The music of 200 KM/H in the Wrong Lane is derived a wide variety of pop and dance genres while heavily incorporating different musical styles and not being present on their previous Russian record. It encompasses a broad variety of genres, such as electronic, rock, jazz, R&B, Hi-NRG and eurodance. It is considered that the album is a departure to their Russian debut, because that contained heavy europop, eurodance and techno influences.
According to Allmusic, t.A.T.u. have been known for "eurodance, europop, electronica and pop rock" music through their career. A lot of fans and, surprisingly, critics have applauded their mix of electronica and pop rock styles. According to Discogs, the album is influenced by musical genres of electronic, pop, rock, europop, pop rock and balladry.
"Not Gonna Get Us" is a eurodance-inspired song. According to Allmusic, the song has music influences off pop, dance-pop, eurodance and rock music. The song "Opens with a throbbing electro beat which then builds to the shrill chorus." "All the Things She Said" was the first single released, but the second track on the album. The song opens with dreamy, trance-gated synthesizers and then shifts into a guitar-based pop rock style with Trevor Horn's trademark huge drum sound, but also lightens up to include softer R&B sounds in the middle eight. The third single "Show Me Love" was released in Poland. The song was described as "neutral" "30 Minutes" was later released from the album as the fourth single. The song has been described as an "slow atmospheric ballad." It was also described as "a wonderfully mellow song nonetheless."
"How Soon Is Now?" was the band's last single released from this album and was also the fifth track on the album. It is a cover version of The Smiths single with the same title. The song "is transformed by scorched synths, furious power-chords and Lena or Julia’s defiant roar “You Shut Your Mouth”, into an angry punka blast." "Clowns (Can You See Me Now?)" was the sixth track on the album. The song was written by Trevor Horn, Ivan Shapolavov and Valeriy Polienko. People had noticed that unusual style in the lyrics It was also scheduled to be the last single, but this plan was scrapped. However, for a promotional release, 200km/h in the Wrong Lane was re-issued in their native Russia under the name t.A.T.u. – Clowns. It has a synthpop and electronica style.
"Malchik Gay" (translated to: Gay Boy) was the bands seventh track on the album. Allmusic had named it as an album highlight because the lyrics, which were written by their producers, had received a lot of attention. The theme of the song specializes with homosexuality. The song is an acoustic song, and has said the song shows "some genuine emotion in here that is well portrayed in the singing." "Stars" was the eighth, and final original track on the album. The song "tries for smooth world-pop with an extended Russian rap, but doesn’t linger in anyone’s memory after it’s over." The remaining tracks on the album include the Russian versions of "All the Things She Said" and "Not Gonna Get Us", an extended version of "Show Me Love" and a remix of "30 Minutes." Some editions of the album also feature the song which t.A.T.u. sang at Eurovision in 2003, Ne Ver', Ne Boysia, as well as a remix of Malchik Gay and a remix of "All the Things She Said".
"200 KM/H in the Wrong Lane" was released physically on 12 December 2002 worldwide by Interscope Records. In the UK, the album was distributed by Polydor Records. In multiple countries, it contained a bonus track a music video. Internationally, the album issued a remix of "30 Minutes".

In different countries, a music video off either "All The Things She Said" or "Not Gonna Get Us" was issued.
The artwork and photoshoot off the album was shot by Sheryl Nields. There are three official covers to the album. The international version featured the girls sitting on a motorcycle (with Julia in front and Lena at the back) with the bands name "t.A.T.u" and the album name "200 KM/H In The Wrong Lane" underneath. The colour of the image is tinted to a green hue.
The Japanese edition was released with the girls dressed in school outfits, hugging each other. The Russian version also featured the girls dressed in school outfits but had them kissing, with Julia's head blocking the kiss from view. Because the album issued music videos, a "G" rating was issued on the cover off the album physically. The 10th Anniversary Gold Edition takes the artwork off "All The Things She Said" and uses the group's music videos to illustrate the border of the cover.

200 km/h in the Wrong Lane received mixed reviews from critics. Entertainment.ie gave it a favorable review, awarding it three stars. They had said "A teenage lesbian duo from Russia may sound like a marketing man's fantasy rather than a living, breathing pop band." and finished saying "Tatu's novelty value won't, of course, last forever. But for now, they're as entertaining as anyone in mainstream chart music." James Martin from PopDirt was very positive by saying "But all this cynicism seems irrelevant when you actually sit down and listen to 200KM/H in the Wrong Lane." He carried on saying " On the contrary 200KM/H In the Wrong Lane is one of the most innovative and unique pop records in very recent history." Sputnikmusic was generally favorable. They stated "I know, I know, I know. Tatu are a stupid manufactured Russian Euro pop band with their only bit of originality [...] However I believe that this album could just be worth that second glance." They later finished "My verdict on this album is simply this: if you consider yourself open-minded in your music taste, check it out. You just might be surprised." Michael Osborn from MusicOMH was positive, saying "Short it may be, but TATU's initial English language offerings are fresh-sounding pop songs of such a high pedigree, that this is an album which will be played to death." They later talked about the girls being on top headlines about the controversy and he stated "Ignore all the headlines - this intriguing Russian act has the ability to hit all the right notes with their music alone, and have more than just one mammoth smash to offer." David Merryweather from Drowned in Sound called the album "the first pop masterpiece of the year" and encouraged people "Don’t pretend you don’t care."
However, Stephen Thomas Erlewine from Allmusic rated the album two stars out of five, by stating "It makes no sense to discuss 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane, the first album by Russian dance-pop duo t.A.T.u., without focusing on the gimmick, since that gimmick is the band [...] Of course, gimmicks have always been central to pop music, including much of the greatest pop music, but few have felt as tawdry as t.A.T.u." He ended by saying "With those relentless, gloomy beats and those voices that cut against the grain, it's easy to concentrate on nothing but the gimmick, because it's more fun to talk about Russian teenage lesbians than listen to this noisy, oppressive murk." Todd Burns from Stylus Magazine awarded the album with a D rating, and gave it a mixed review. He said "It’s obviously pop product and probably not worth the money to buy, but certainly essential pop listening if only for the already European released singles." However, he was positive towards the single releases, calling them "phenomenal confectionary pop constructions."
