Point Break couldn't have picked a worse year to launch themselves into an already overflowing pop boyband market. In the UK especially during 1999/2000 already out there enjoying success to varying degrees were... (deep breath) Westlife,Boyzone,Five,A1,Another Level,Backstreet Boys,NSYNC,911,BBMak,Damage not to mention countless B league boybands formed from the late 90's lasting a few moderate singles. It's no wonder our small island wasn't drowning in a sea of boybands clogging up the singles chart during this period.
Point Break to their credit did acheive some success in the charts a huge achievement considering the odds and in a handful of countries outside the UK also. The group were really a mix of all the successful boybands that had gone before them but still unique. However their biggest similarities style and sound wise with other boybands would be East 17 and Five mainly.
The big pull with this boyband and what set them apart speaking as someone who naturally went on to rock groups later was the fact this group incorporated guitar solos in their tracks. Favourite tracks are the singles and probably 'You' the video shot in New York City being my favourite, however 'Stand Tough' was also a great track.
The band should have stayed together as by 2001 all of the established mentioned boybands had split or were dropping in popularity leaving just Westlife and A1 dominating in the boyband stakes with Five winding down and Blue being the only big new successful boyband of 2001.
