    Well, I like the boys since 11 years. I've waited for something that could beat "Backstreet's Back" or "Unbreakable" - but unfortunately "This Is Us" doesn't bring it. Too much of the same, I had the hope their music would grow with them. Solely "Bigger" gets me and is indeed nicely arranged, the rest rather reminds me of what I could get from any no name boyband out there. Well, I like the boys since 11 years.

  1. On This Is Us, the group sounds great for their age, and they sound like they're at their peak.
  2. The new disc does mark the band's return after a decade to its old teen-pop sound, and considering these guys' combined age, the result is surprisingly unembarrassing.
  3. A competent but very late-adopted pop-trance slurry.
