    With DNA, a revitalized Backstreet Boys exude an assured confidence, taking enough steps forward to continue their pop maturation without ignoring the hooks and harmonies that carried them all this way.

    There’s a down-to-earth sense of crisp, hooky economy à la Mendes and Puth, gentlemanly horniness mixed with bittersweet innocence they wear well, even as grown men who know what it’s like to soldier their way to hard-earned redemption.

    Well-manicured music that cannily plunders contemporary chart sounds and plonks a pitch-perfect harmony on them.

    Mostly this standard boyband fare, reheated, and topped with modern pop sprinkles. It just feels so unnecessary.

    25 years later and they still do good pop music. This is not for everybody.

    The album is half digital (modern, productionalized) and half analog (acoustic, soft). Digital + Analog = DNA. The best songs on this albumThe album is half digital (modern, productionalized) and half analog (acoustic, soft). Digital + Analog = DNA. The best songs on this album are the digital ones: Passionate, New Love, Breathe, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, The Way It Was, and Is It Just Me. The public seems to agree, as the group got their 1st Grammy nomination in 17 years with Don't Go Breaking My Heart. If they release more songs from the "digital" portion of the album, it should perform well. Expand

    their weakest album by far. they have zero writing credits on this one. i'm mad because they been having writing credits on every album sincetheir weakest album by far. they have zero writing credits on this one. i'm mad because they been having writing credits on every album since backstreet's back album. i don't know how this album ended up with better scores than never gone&unbreakable. with that said breathe is the highlight on this album&one of their best this decade.

    This has to be one of the worst albums I've listened to in a while. There's not an ounce of creativity here. It sounds dated, generic, cheesy.This has to be one of the worst albums I've listened to in a while. There's not an ounce of creativity here. It sounds dated, generic, cheesy. It's just such a pointless album. Expand
