    The 100 rating by the LA Times guy is legit. He gave it 4/4 stars. That being said, he's definitely a shill or trying to earn ironic cred.

  1. The problem facing New Kids on the Block on their 2008 reunion The Block is the same one they had on their last album, 1994's "Face the Music": the quintet are no longer kids and don't quite know how to be adults.
  2. The Block bears no distinguishing marks aside from a compulsion for sex, sex, sex with a lover whose name, apparently, is Girl.
  3. Believe it or not, though, they've got the right stuff.
