'Never Gone' marks the group's fifth album release. Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, AJ McClean, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson continue to skillfully combine their signature elements of beautiful harmonies and power ballads with more live instruments to create an album with many different flavors. This new contemporary sound welcomes even more contributions from all members lyrically as well as musically featuring Kevin Richardson on piano and Nick Carter on guitar. 'Never Gone' continues the artistic growth and musical development since their last all new release, 'Black & Blue'. The Backstreet Boys have teamed up with some of today's hottest producers and writers to deliver one of their most compelling records to date. Dan Muckala (Aaron Neville, Mandy Moore) produced the first single, "Incomplete," which is a mid-tempo ballad that illustrates the group's tight harmony and soulful pop. Other producers include Billy Mann (Pink, Jessica Simpson, Sting) and Max Martin (Britney Spears, *NSync, Celine Dion) to name just a few. The Dual Disc will include the complete album in Enhanced Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound, plus the "Incomplete" video, "Making Of The Video," in-studio footage, behind-the-scenes footage, and more! Jive. 2005.
On Never Gone, the Backstreet Boys crib from the pop foundation they helped establish. Like a lot of smart popsters on the rebound, the reunited fab five broach their return by borrowing from the current hit makers. Even after a four-year hiatus, the flecks of new influence won't matter a bit to the fans. The boys' signature sugar-coated yearning softens every song to a melty consistency, and the lyrics haven't lost any of their babe-magnet pull. "It's all so dark and mysterious/When the one you want doesn't want you," sing the chiseled Lotharios on "Siberia." And on the final title track, a swirling crescendo sums up the sentiments of millions of heartsick, former teen devotees: "Never gone, never far/In my heart is where you are." -Tammy La Gorce

On this album, they are serious and sad, I mean, their life is so bad! They have adoring fans, luxury homes/cars, MONEY! But of course, that isn't enough! Life is still a drag, right? Although that may have not have been the intended message, it sure seemed like it. Do these guys know how to smile?
I will admit it, 'Incomplete' is the kind of song that gets stuck in your head easily. It has a catchy tune, their voices are okay. Unlike the rest of this album. It is extremely hard to sit threw.
Do I recomend this? Well, it depends. If you are a HUGE BSB fan, then go ahead, buy it if you want. It's not the cute boy band pop I used to love, though. If you like rock bands and more punky pop, like Sum 41, Simple Plan etc. Why are you even looking at this item?!
Go ahead and buy this if you want, it'll just give them more money. Money makes life more depressing for them.
At first glance, this album along with its track list, looks very similar to the old albums, but once its playing, the resemblance fades away. Despite having cheesy title's like "poster girl", they're songs are the perfect combinations of radio rock and power ballads.Aj's volcals in "Poster girl" are perfectly suited for the song and is one of my favorites. "Lose it all" is a great song too about dealing with lose that is sad and touching in lyrical content but somehow up beat. All in all the songs are exactly what i was hoping for in their new ablum...if you've ever been a backstreet boy fan, get this album, it won't dissapoint you!!
After everything this band has been through together and individually, its so comforting to know that after all these years their talent and determination has not diminished in the slightest.
Awesome come-back album!!
playing them over and over again! By now I'm sure you have heard the first
single "Incomplete" What a great way to start off the CD with a beautiful
While this CD lacks a lot of the up-tempo songs their previous albums
had---I was expecting a rockier sound, but most of the songs are very
pretty and the album flows really well. There is a peaceful, otherworldly feel to some of the tracks, and hints of alt-rock here and there--think Incubus, Morning View era.
Standout tracks include 'Climbing
the Walls' a beautiful and emotional song, and 'Siberia,' which is a
really pretty ballad and puts you in a romantic mood. This CD is destined
to be one of the top albums of the year.
