Any obsessive Backstreet fan, please look away now--the following statement might make you cry. The BBs are different from the clutch of boy bands from both side of the Atlantic (from New Kids to Boyzone) because none of them are actually that good looking. AAARGH! Don't kill the messenger, this is meant nicely. It took four years for them to find worldwide success (better-lookers would have done it quicker, but better-lookers wouldn't be so talented), but from 1995-99 the five boys (AJ, Howie, Nick, Kevin and Brian) slogged their guts out, singing their harmonies and winning loyal support. This album, their second in Europe, came just as they were established here, and were getting started with their old material in their native USA. The opening three tracks, all killers, prove their pop mettle: the howlingly dirty "Backstreet's Back", "As Long As You Love Me" and "All I Have To Give". Wierdest track, and strangely satisfying with it, is their harmony-fest take on PM Dawn's "Set Adrift On Memory Bliss", a frat-boy serenade to all us eternal teens everywhere. --Charlie Porter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This CD includes 3 of BSB's biggest hits to date ("Everybody", "As Long As You Love Me", and "All I Have to Give") which were released over the course of 1997-1999 along with "Quit Playing Games" and "I'll Never Break Your Heart" from their first album. Also present on here is the fair cover of "Set Adrift" and the almost frightening "If You Want It To Be Good Girl." And then we have the even better songs that were never released here in the states. The uptempo "That's the Way I like It" (no, it isn't a KC and the Sunshine band cover) is a nice little dance song and has became a fan favorite, but it was never really one of mine. It's still worth checking out. There's also the gorgeous ballad "10,000 Promises" which is another fan favorite and really shows off BSB's powerful vocals. Next is the power ballad "Like A Child" (a favorite of mine) complete with an electric guitar solo and everything. "That's What She Said" is also on here. Written and sang by Brian, it's more proof just how talented BSB are. And finally, we have "If I Don't Have You." IIDHY sounds very early-mid 90's-ish, but it's a beautiful ballad with very sweet vocals.
So, to any BSB fan that's trying their best to be patient for BSB's new album, this is a great buy. Definitely worth the money!
Backstreet's Back is their second album. All i have to say is that it's not very well put together as their first self-titled debut one. Many of the songs contained in this one are very boring and filler. The CD does have it's good moments though such as Everybody (backstreet's back), 10,000 promises, Like A Child, Set Adrift on Memory Bliss, and That's What She Said. The rest are sort of boring to listen to. The best tracks i've mentioned are in the US release of Backstreet Boys. Unless you're a really big fan of the BSB and residing in the USA, you might be happier buying that album instead of this one.
This CD gets a 3 because only half the songs are boring. They aren't terrible...just boring to listen to. If you want a really good album from early backstreet boys, try purchasing the import European version of their first album 'Backstreet Boys' released way before the US version. Some great funk, soul, and ballads in that one. This one is more filler.
There are some good ones here; mainly the infectious title track and the song "Missing You" (I'm not sure if it's on this particular release-mine was from Australia.) But most of the songs are hopelessly weak; you'll likely tire of it VERY quickly.
After sweating for years in the underground and finally bursting onto the scene in 1995/96 with their first mainstream album, BSB got lazy for this one and they went along with really empty songs for the second. Unless you like over-repetitive radio pop with miserably loud drum tracks, you'll regret the 24 dollars you spent.
They were frugal with their first attempt, using both ballads and urban dance songs (with many early mixes used in clubs, the punchy, almost disco-style first album could have sprouted the first seeds of those gay rumours that have plagued groups like this ever since) and afterwards, with Millennium and now B&B they have more melody to their songs. Here there is neither fun nor seriousness, just perfunctory crap.
Everybody--I like this version better then the USA version because in the USA version (i think anyway) has way to long of an introduction
As Long As You Love Me--I like this version better then USA because the piano interlude it kinda nice
All I Have To Give--same as USA version
That's The Way I Like It--my favorite track! I first heard this one on a concert special and I fell in love with it. The beat is phat and it's an awsome song to dance to.
10,000 Promises--very sweet, although the chorus has sort of a little creepy kinda feelin to it.
Like A Child--awsome! The guitar interlude is soo awsome.
Hey, Mr Dj--same as USA version. I've always liked it.
Set Adrift On Memory Bliss-never really liked this song to begin with (and for all who are interested, it's the same as the USA version)
That's What She Said--very sweet. I liked this song since day one.
If You Want It To Be Good--same as USA version and always liked it.
If I Don't Have You--never really liked this song to begin with.
For all who have the USA version of this album, I would highly reccomend this album.
