Overview

If Greatest Hits doesn't seem as fun as it should be, that's because the New Kids on the Block's material has dated, even though it, in many ways, set the template for the teen pop of the late '90s/early 2000s. Max Martin used Maurice Starr's formula, but he writes better songs -- only "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)" and "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" stand the test of time as good pop singles, but the rest are pretty much triumphs of recording and the form. Also, the sequencing doesn't play to their strengths, failing to gain much momentum as it plays. This still is recommended as the first pick, since it does have all of NKOTB's hits on one disc, but it's still sort of a shock that this doesn't play as trashy fun, the way it does in memory -- or the way Milli Vanilli's music now does. [A bonus tracks version was released in 2008.]

New Kids on the Block do bring back fond memories of crimped hair and wild makeup. Although they have moved on to new things, they laid the foundations for the modern boy bands of America. Enjoy the memories while they last!

I absolutely love them to pieces! I was about 7 or 8 when I first got into them and I STILL love them (I'm 28 now LOL). Their music is amazing and timeless. Boy band or not, they're awesome. Valentine Girl...oh...my...gosh!!!
