Product Description

Product Description

'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

Oh, where to start? I admit I used to like the BSB when I was younger, I love "Don't Want you Back" and I've come to realise what the BSB really are: Manufactured crap.
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.

...but I'll have to agree with the critics on this one. As much as I love the Backstreet Boys and wanted to like this album (believe me, I really tried), I have to say that I was really disappointed. I can only imagine how difficult it must be for a (boy) band like BSB to make a comeback after a 5-year hiatus : having to reinvent yourself, conquer a new audience while being careful not to alienate the old one... But I feel the problem is just that : they weren't able to reinvent themselves. Instead, they kept the same kind of mushy lyrics (I really thought they were past the "I-can't-live-without-you-please-give-me-one-more-chance stage")but incorporated them in a music that seems designed only to fit the current soundscape (Weird World is a carbon copy of Coldplay). Which is really sad, because Incomplete was really promising. But Never Gone simply doesn't feel like the glorious comeback it should be. Instead, it shows the guys' vulnerability, their fear of taking the risk to push the envelope and surprise people, fans and critics alike. We know they've grown up, but it's as if they were afraid to show it. When they were making bubble-gum pop, at least they had a carved a sound of their own, which was later copied by Britney, Nsync and all the boybands that followed. But this time around, unfortunately, they're the ones copying the others. And it's truly a shame.

I remember being 10 yrs old, sitting infront of the tv watching the backstreet boy video for "Get down" on YTV and wondering who these guys were. They have been a part of my life and music collection ever since. I have been a faithful fan since 93 and waiting for this album was the hardest thing I ever had to do!!! Well its June 14th and the wait is finally over!! I ran out and bought my copy this morning as the stores opened just as I did for Backstreet's Back when that came out years ago.
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!!

Backstreet Boys' latest release "Never Gone" is classic Backstreet with a fresh, updated feel. It is full of great songs that will have you
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
ballad.
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.

This is Backstreet Boys at their best. From the powerful ballads of Incomplete and Siberia to the toe-tapping Just Want You to Know and My Beautiful Woman, BSB makes a major comeback with this CD. The harmonies in each song are unsurpassable, the words are so meaningful, and the guys themselves are looking better than ever ;). I love everything from Coldplay to Our Lady Peace, but this album tops those of other artists and bands. I haven't stopped listening to this CD since it came out, and I doubt I'll ever grow tired of it! I love it!!! It is quite a bit different than their older stuff, but I'd say the changes were for the best. Their music, both lyrically and rythmically, has grown up just as the boys have. All in all, BSB fans are in for a delicious treat.
