Backstreet Boys Black & Blue CD Review

Backstreet Boys Black & Blue CD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Well the boys are back again with their new album Black & Blue. This will be the one that will either make them or break them.

2000 (JIVE)

Well, Backstreet's back - again. This time with their new album Black & Blue. This will be the one that will either make them or break them. The first single Shape of My Heart, an emotionally upbeat ballad, is getting good reviews, but I think they should have released an in-your-face dance tune. Let's face it, everyone knows that Black & Blue is up against *NSYNC's No Strings Attached and *NSYNC's 1st single, the danceable Bye Bye Bye, catapulted the album into recording-breaking sales.

BSB's The Call sets the tone for Black & Blue which is a mix of dance tunes and ballads. And yes, the guys sound more mature this time around. They're tackling bigger issues than crushes and are singing about real relationships. There is a definite soul feel, especially on the slower ballads. The best ballad - after Shape of My Heart - is More Than That. But the strongest songs on the CD are Not For Me and a couple of other upbeat tracks, Answer to Our Life and Everyone. Artistically the band has grown, but don't expect to find any songs as adrenaline filled as past tunes like Everybody (Backstreet's Back) or Larger Than Life.

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
