    More of the same fake, overproduced crap that is more big business than it will ever be musical talent. No one should ever pick on the Backstreet fans though. It's just a big company that cleverly markets generic garbage.

    I know it's easy to bash them, but they are still the same generic boy band.

    Absolutely crap, backstreet boys need to realize that their time has long gone. Boyband has gone down the ditch whatever effort put into trying to revive those glorious days are uselss. absolute junk might as well use em as coasters.

    i'll give 'em 1 for turning up. i'd vote higher if they promised it was their last ever. they may have grown up to be men but have done so in a bubble of unreality and a great lack of inspiration.

    Jess, that's against the rules to say a backstreet boys album ROCKS. That's just crazy if you say that. Oh and by the way, it does not rock. It is the most dull, shockingly bland album you will ever hear.

  1. Never Gone [is] a solid adult contemporary album, which will please both BSB diehards and the dwindling ranks who wish that the glory days of Jon Secada never ended, but its relative strength does highlight one problem with the album: this kind of music doesn't sound quite as convincing when delivered by a group of guys as it does by one singer.

    Never Gone's rock ballads are painfully and sometimes powerfully earnest demands for meaning and redemption. [Aug 2005, p.108]
  3. Even if they aren't Never Gone, their inspiration certainly is.
