Backstreet Boys ~ Millennium
For their hard-core under-18 fans, of course, the Backstreet Boys are all that, and a bag of chips and free soda to boot. Millennium, the follow-up to the quintet's umpteen-million-selling debut, offers more reasons why so many of the rest of us have found a place for them in our hearts. The Boys' ultrapackaged look and up-to-date production underscore the quality of their best tracks; only a churl could deny that "I Want It That Way" is one fine radio-aimed declaration of love, or that "Larger Than Life" makes the most of its Daft Punk sample and double-edged acknowledgment of Backstreet followers' loyalty. And who can resist an album-closer like "The Perfect Fan," Brian Littrell's ode to his mom? --Rickey Wright

Overall: You will LOVE THIS. Even if you love hard music.
Well that was my review of some of the songs I like/dislike, as you see this album is really good and I must tell you that I mainly like their ballads on here that their fast songs! The reason why I gave this CD 4 stars is because of those 2 songs I don't like. But otherwise, this album is great! I reccomend you buy this CD even if you are or aren't a fan of the Backstreet boys or Pop music! You will love this record! Nice going BSB! :)
Let me start off by stating that if you have never owned a Backstreet Boys CD, and you are currently planning to, I highly suggest purchasing this one. Being a fan of these five men, I have discovered that their self-titled pales in comparison to Millennium, and their latest lp, Black & Blue, is almost a derivative of the former. The track list is riddled with sappy ballads and a taste of quick-paced rock/pop, yet many of these songs are timeless and can be easy reminders of late 90's music at its finest. Take "I Want It That Way" and "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely," for example, and you've found yourself classics that are extremely difficult for true blue pop music fanatics to resist. Nonetheless, there are cheesy remnants set aloof here, such as "Spanish Eyes" and "The Perfect Fan," which can nausiate even the most romantic of beings. Overall, this album is a must if you are wise enough to work past the fact that the singers do not compose most of the songs, and if you gravitate towards harmonic, melodic, love ballads.

That's 29 songs! You can't say they don't write their own songs, because they do, and they also happen to be the best songs they do too.
Millennium is my favorite BSB album because I feel it is reflects exactly who the BSB are. If you don't like BSB, then deal. You don't have to, but if you refuse to listen to them cuz they're a 'boyband' then it's your loss, not mine, or the BSB.
Here's my opinion on each of the songs:
Larger Than Life - Great song. Nothing about love(YAY!!), it's an ode to the fans, instead. It has an upbeat tempo, and actual guitar work, which includes a short solo in the middle. An awesome song to dance to, and my personal favorite on this CD.
I Want It That Way - This song has one of the most catchy choruses ever. It's one of those songs, where you hear it on the radio, or inside a store, or wherever, and can't help but sing along. To me, the chorus is definitely the highlight of this song. The song starts out slow, then it picks up and breaks out in the chorus. Everything comes together then.
Show Me The Meaning of Being Lonely - My second favorite on the CD...great song lyrically, has quite a few transitions, and does not leave you with a dull moment. A very well written song and beautifully sung. This song almost sounds out of this world, for the voices, words, and melodies take you everywhere.
It's Gotta Be You - Very cheesy indeed, but catchy. Musically, this song is not half bad...fast paced, good song to dance high energy to, well mixed beats, and fun. Lyrically, it's incredibly cheesy, but the music makes up for it. Not too bad.
I Need You Tonight - This song bores me.Read more ›
