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!
"Like a child" and "that's what she said" are also such sweet ballads. I also really like the final track "if I don't have you." That song reminds me of "I'll never break your heart." I became a fan with BSB's debut but I became an even bigger fan with this one. Once again the boys have awesome harmonies and solos. Nick even sounds a lot better on here.
If you you're a fan of BSB then you know their sound. I think they make great pop music. Plain and simple. BACKSTREET'S BACK is yet another excellent CD by the boys of pop.
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.
