    An effort largely filled with breathy, elevator-ready ballads, and jazzy uptempo ditties that never quite reach their potential. [12 Apr 2013, p.72]

    This is merely designed to please the diehards... if anybody else happens to like it or if it stumbles into a hit, that's merely a bonus.

    As much as everybody appreciates a good reunion, 10 isn’t really worth getting excited about unless you’re a diehard fan.

    10, when it’s all said and done, lacks exceptionalness, polish, and memorableness.

    There's a serviceable hit nonetheless in Remix (I Like The), and the itchy R&B of Jealous (Blue) has some appeal, but the purest joy comes from rap so bad that you'll want to play it for everyone you know.

    The result is a muddle of mid-2000s electro (such as Crash, which is splashed with RedOne-style Auto-Tune), bubblegum-urban modelled on their early hits (Now or Never) and conveyor-belt ballads.

    10. As the title of the album says, this album is perfect. As an old New Kids On The Block fan, I'm very pleased that they're back for good (no pun intended), and that The Block wasn't just a one and done thing. This album has a lot of good tracks, but my favourite is We Own Tonight. And it's not a 90s remix, no, it sounds so current, that some of my 11 year old pupils ask me for the artists, because they liked it a lot and they didn't know them. Expand

    This is great album from NKOTB. "10" feels unequivocally and undeniably "new". Their music so different from before. If you think their song like 90's song then you are wrong! This album absolutely perfect. I love all the song on 10. In this album, Jonathan Knight, one of the member, answer the critics that he really can sing. Great Job Man!! Expand

    Thought this album is more targeted at the longtime fans than the current mainstream market, these songs contain the best sounds that the New Kids ever achieved. Expand

    LOL, this is pretty much complete trash. What were they thinking? Bad. I used to like NKOTB. But ever since NKOTBSBMFJWQFGHGS or whatever it was called came, they have been not so hot. Mixed reception though, because they have 2/3 decent tracks. Expand
