Backstreet's Back [Australia Bonus Tracks]by Backstreet Boys
The Backstreet Boys finally achieved American success with their second album, Backstreet's Back. The reason for the sudden success had more to do with good marketing than the music itself, since Backstreet's Back is nearly identical to Backstreet Boys. Loaded with dance-pop and ballads, the album is as glossy as mainstream pop can possibly be. That slick production adds luster to the singles "Quit Playin' Games (With My Heart)" and "As Long as You Love Me," making them as irresistable as teen pop can be. There isn't anything else that really matches those twin peaks, but there's enough craft, hooks and fun on the rest of the album to make it quite entertaining. [Backstreet's Back

well thay are cool.thay are sweet.i like nick and thay are sooooooo cool
The BSB's are the best!!!
This cd is one of their best cds ever. The best songs are 'That's The Way I Like It', 'If I Don't Have You', '10,000 Promises', and 'Like a Child'. My fave is 'If I don't have you'. Nick's voice is soooo sexy in it. I love Nickolas Gene Carter!!!!
Backstreet's first cd is really good, I prefer the second one, but I love this a lot too!!! Those guys have a lot of talent, and deserve to be recognized!! With all the sh** they have been through, they deserve many awards!! Nsync just needs to stop trying to be like BSB, cause it is never going to happen!! BSB rules, and always will!! Happy late B-Day AJ(it was the 9th, and he's 22) Happy early B-Day Nick (it is the 28th and he will be 20!)Peace! KTBSPA!!
Backstreet Boys are the bomb! This cd is one of the best! It is sooooooooo cool!! I especially like the song Get Down. Get this cd to add to your collection! Or if you don't have a collection, this is all you'll need!!
BSB is the best! They could beet Nsync any day anytime! Nick, Brian and Howie are sooooo cute.
This CD is sssssoooooo totaly awsome. The songs are great, and the guys all sound really good.
bsb have done it again! although i don't know when they left, but they sure are back, but i feel n-stync needs to leave!
I think that Nick is very cute, says Danielle. Deana says that she likes Nick very much. Your music is terrific. My mom wishes that you were around when she was growing up. We hope that you stay around in the mucic business for a long long time.
I Love the Backstreet Boys, all of there music eather melts my heart or gets my hips movn'! Every CD is packed with dance hits, Pop tunes, R&B, and there one-of-a-kind voices! The only thing that's distracting them is 'N Sync or is that 'N Stink, They all ways wanted to be like the Backstreet Boys, but let me tell you the original is the best, plus 'N Sync Are REALLY BAD copy cats, and only two of them sing, and they are all UGLY!!!!!!!! I Will ALLWAYS LOVE THE BACKSTREET BOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This CD is the coolest you really should buy it!!!!! AJ looks soooo cute in the pictures in the cd they all look so young and they are so adorable!!! I love AJ McLean!!!!!!!!
I LOVE THE BAXTREAT BOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whoever thinks differently have pretty bad taste. Although *NSync do not come close to competing w/ BSB, don't totally make fun of 'em! They are people to! NEway, This album rocks, but then again, don't all of their albums rock?? Let's just say that I'm Nick's (& the rest of the groups') #1 fan! HAPPY B-DAY NICK!! (IT IS NEXT FRIDAY, THE 28TH)!
If you are a BSB fanatic you should definitly get these cd's that come in a two pack. And anyway the UK Cd is something special. More for your money!
This cd has really good songs on it. My fav.s are Just To Be Close and Let's Have A Party. Nick has one solo in Just To Be Close. It's sooo sweet. Nick sings basiclly the whole song of Let's Have A Party. Cause I know at concerts their fans are having a party.
HI! I am a big fan of the Backstreet Boys and I will always be. The BSB Rock the world!!
This was the best CD I have ever heard!They've got great songs ! Very Romantic ! They've got a very good flow ! The following is off topic : I love the Backsteet Boys, Brian is my FAVORITE!!! I know that he is getting married (Don't say I didn't warn you about the off topic thing) and so is Kevin , but still Littrel & Wallace , best wishes to you 2 !!! And Kevin , best wishes to you too !! If Brian gets divorced , hopefully , he is mine ! YOU HEAR THAT GIRLS !!!! BRIAN LITTREL IS MINE !!! :-) BsB r #1 4 life ! YYAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE BRAIN , KEVIN , A.J. , HOWIE , AND NICK 4 EVA !!!!!!! #1 records,CD's, merchandise, bodies, names, faces,voices, concerts, EVERYTHING !!!
I absolutely loved this cd! I listen to this atleast once every 3 days but I listen to the BSB every day! I really liked the song on the album entitled, 'That's What She Said' because by brian wrote it. I LOVE BRIAN!!!!! Anybody who wants to talk about the BSB e-mail me
I love the title 'Backstreet's Back' because it sounds like they r telling everyone that they r back to rule and concure and never leaving.
