Stay the Same

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Elysa Gardner
At 26, Joey McIntyre is the senior citizen of the '99 crop of youth-oriented acts. He's also the one new kid who's already been around the block, having been a member of the '80s boy group New Kids on the Block. On his solo debut, the cheekily titled STAY THE SAME, McIntyre is reborn as a self-styled blue-eyed soul man, offering earnest ballads and funky upbeat tunes that nod heartily to '70s R&B. Describing the songs, most of which he cowrote, McIntyre professes, "This is all my angst up to this point." Sonically, however, the tracks are pure ear candy -- designed, like the best teen-dream pop, to attract the young and the young ...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
The Spice Girls and carried forward by the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync, with record companies scrambling to find their own clear-skinned, smiling adolescents singing and dancing ability optional, will train, why not look back ten years to the last teen pop trend and see if any of them can be repackaged? Enter Joey McIntyre not to mention Jordan Knight, formerly of the New Kids on the Block, who, for those of you too young to remember 1989, were the Backstreet Boys of their time. McIntyre, the youngest of the quintet of singing, dancing, cute white-boys-with-soul from Boston, is now 26 years old, which is a bit long in the tooth for this business. But those teeth are gleaming white in the video for the title track from this, his debut solo album, as he emotes sincerely in front of a black gospel choir. McIntyre doesn't need to be told what to do. He knows to alternate dance numbers and ballads. He knows that the lyrics have to be first-person declarations of love and support directed at an intended adolescent or younger female audience. He doesn't need a Svengali to craft such greeting-card sentiments for him, either though fellow ex-NKOTB Donnie Wahlberg pitches in, as can be seen from his co-writing credits on songs with titles like "Couldn't Stay Away From Your Love," "I Can't Do Without You," and "The Way That I Loved You" for the ballads and "Give It Up" and "We Can Get Down" plagiarism alert: sounds a lot like "Grease" for the dance songs. Of course, it's all contrived, derivative, and formulaic, but that doesn't matter. The question is whether McIntyre can still come across as a teen dream, now that he's over 21 and by himself. And the answer is -- maybe. "Stay the Same" he loves you just the way you are quickly hit the Top Ten, and the album went gold, but as spring turned to summer, McIntyre slipped down the charts as the Backstreet Boys renewed their reign with Millennium. He probably should have released "One Night" as the second single, even though it might be considered actionable by the authors of "Groovin'" and "Just My Imagination," since its lazy groove could have made it the single of the summer, instead of going with "I Love You Came Too Late." There is only so much room on those bedroom walls, after all, and it's not clear that this Old Kid is quite cute enough to make the cut.

    New Kids aren't all this guy is about!

    It seems like all people can say when they talk about Joe is that he USED to be a pop sensation and now because he curses and talks about sex he has shown every one he isn't a "Kid" any more. The thing that I always admired about him from 1989 when I first heard about New Kids on the Block was that he WAS who he was and he didn't have to be like the other guys to be cool he just was COOL, maybe that was how I saw it and not how it really was from HIS point of view but it was a lesson that helped me throughout my formative years and so whatever he really went through and whatever he really thought or felt, It really meant more to me than just a "pop phase". I know it is easy to make fun of the cutesy teeny bopper way they acted but isn't that a little better than getting kids into sex as early as possible by having more HARD CORE "Stars" for them to listen too I am GLAD to have grown up in the time of New Kids on the Block I loved them then and they will all always have a special place in my heart sort of like older brothers that you can appreciate and admire sort of, but you don't have to deal with all the time it really meant a lot to me and besides he can still totally rock and this album is AWESOME, I really enjoy it!!!!!
