Backstreet Boys in Lime (August): Review + Article


Never Gone
Backstreet Boys

Who're they? Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean & Nick Carter once made up the biggest boy band in the world. Then Nick released a solo album, Brian became a father, AJ went to rehab, Howie worked on his charity organisation & Kevin went on broadway. Five years later, they reconvene on their fourth studio record.

Sounds like: Boybanders who took the rock route.

Stuff we like: I know I said in June's review that their first single, 'Never Gone', sounds like every other sappy boyband ballad but I have to say it grows on you. Kudos to them for redefining their sound. Choice cuts include Poster Girl, Wierd World & I Still.

Stuff we don't: Crawling Back To You sounds like another cookie cutter pop ballad

In other words: Not as bad as I thought it would be.

Rating: 3.5/5

*Gosh, they can't even get the single title right!*
