Product Description


The Backstreet Boys' previous outing, Millennium, was a tough act to follow, combining as it did the storming pop of "Larger Than Life" and the sublime balladry of "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely." Black & Blue is a worthy successor, if a slightly more mature sound for the boys. There's plenty of uptempo pop, such as the catchy advice dished out on "Get Another Boyfriend" and the slinky beat-riddled R&B of "Shining Star," nicely balanced with some smooth ballads--you can almost hear the lighters sparking up as the Spanish guitar gently plucks away on "I Promise You (with Everything I Am)." However, it's when they take up immediately where Millennium left off that they are at their strongest: "The Answer to Our Life" and "Not for Me" form a sturdy bridge from their previous output onward to the future. If this is the state of things to come, the future is decidedly rosy for Brian, Kevin, Howie, A.J., and Nick. --Helen Marquis

Backstreet Boys deliver on this album and the best song on this album is the beautiful ballad, SHAPE OF MY HEART. This has to be one of the best songs on the album. The Call and More Than That are standouts from this album. The Backstreet Boys have delivered an amazing album. This is one of the best albums from the Backstreet Boys.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best boy-band ever with another great album Aug. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Backstreet Boys is the best boy-band of the late 90s, and please don't tell me Nsync sold more records because Backstreet is known around the world while Nsync isn't. Nsync is only known in foreign countries because Britney dated Justin. Here's the review of their best album:
1. The Call, 9/10: Great song, the spanish guitar at the beginning is great.
2. Shape Of My Heart, 10/10: the "I Want It That Way" of this album, classic.
3. Get Another Boyfriend, 8/10: Nick's vocals are great on this one.
4. Shining Star, 8/10: Written by Howie and Nick, A.J. and Nick's vocals are awesome on this one.
5. I Promise You, 9/10: Great ballad, sounds like BoysIIMen.
6. The Answer To Our Life, 10/10: Great song, sounds like "The One".
7. Everyone, 6/10: Didn't like that one, the lyrics are okay but the music isn't.
8. More Than That, 10/10: Another great ballad.
9. Time, 8/10: Produced by Babyface.
10. Not For Me, 8/10: Great up-tempo song, the vocals are great.
11. It's True, 9/10: Written by Kevin, excellent vocals.
12. Yes I Will, 8/10: Written by A.J., great lyrics.
13. How Did I Fall In Love With You, 10/10: Written by Howie, good lyrics, good vocals.
Except for "Everyone", all the songs are excellent and if you're a pop fan, you should buy this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Backstreet Boys ROX always and FOREVER!!!!! Aug. 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wow, what an honor to be the first person to review Black and Blue from one of the greatest bands in the world! Not to mention one of the most talented. The album itself is great with alot of catchy songs, including The Call, Shape of My Heart, The Answer to Our Lives and It's True. They all have great beats and an amazing sound, however I didn't like the song Get Another Boyfriend. The guys could've done without the song, but other than that it's a great album. I CANNOT wait for their upcoming album in October. Hopefully, they will hit their prime once more and will bring back pop music back to the top of the charts where it belongs! The guys deserve to win a few Grammys and a whole lot more no matter what anyone else says!

5.0 out of 5 stars KTBSPA! June 26 2004
By Arielle
Format:Audio CD
this album is awsome! all of their songs have a meaning behind them! the best songs on this album are, I Promise You (With Eveyrthing I Am), because the beat is great, and its just a really sweet song, that is easy to love! Time, because teh boys talk about their past before they became teh legendary Backstreet Boys, and also because AJ sounds amazing, but when does he not??). And Lastly Yes I Will, because it a really nice song, and also because AJ wrote it. Its a real personal song, that is easy to love!
So i would defiantely recomend this album to anybody who appreciates good music and talent. The boys definately posess both of these qualities.
P.S. Backstreet Boys were here first! and they will be her last! N*SYNC and all the other little boys groups cant even live up to the Backstreet Boys. They cant even compare! so KTBSPA!

3.0 out of 5 stars ummm... March 27 2004
By Ashley
Format:Audio CD
I don't know what the guys were thinking when they were recording this album or maybe AJ shared some of his Jack Daniels with them in the studio and they were all drunk but that is the only excuse i can come up with. ok maybe that's a little harsh but no matter how many times i listen to this CD i just can;t help the feeling of disappointment. Millennium was a tough act to follow(definetly their best album) but this was just bad all around. I'd argue that half the tracks are garbage...for example i still wonder how Shining Star, The Answer To Our Life, Not For Me and The Call made it onto the album! Maybe they were rushed but i'm certain that they could've had at least 5 other songs that were better than those.

But there are some really good songs too. Time is one of my personal favourite BSB songs...maybe because all 5 of them wrote it together...I Promise You and How Did I Fall In Love are equally impressive. Get Another Boyfriend i loved from the first time i played it.
I think the guys could've done a lot better especially after they did all these interviews before its release saying how amazing the new album was gonna be. We got all excited for not much if you ask me.
