The Hits: Chapter One

( 63 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Before there was an 'N Sync or an O-Town, the Backstreet Boys ruled the pop charts -- selling 13 million copies of their self-titled debut. Two albums (Millennium and Black & Blue) later, the Boys have sold more than 65 million discs worldwide. So what better way to celebrate their excellent track record than with a greatest-hits package featuring TRL favorites such as "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart),"Larger Than Life," and "I Want It That Way." Backstreet's back!

Backstreet's back!
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Backstreet Boys were the first and best of the boy bands of the great teen pop bands of the late '90s/early 2000s, even if 'N Sync eventually usurped their title of "the biggest boy band." Their reign seemed long, but it really wasn't -- only three albums before the bottom started to fall out with 2000's Black & Blue. If everything had gone right, Black & Blue would have ruled the charts for about two years, but about a year after its release, the group and their label unleashed The Hits: Chapter One, a sure sign not only that Black & Blue didn't perform to expectations, but they were worried about the shifting tastes of their audience. Instead of reviving interest in the group, the collection instead felt like it was closing the door on their period of dominance and it initially sold that way, too, barely making a dent on the charts. Even if it is a bit of an inadvertent last will and testament, it's a hell of a summation of the group's glory days, offering definitive proof that the group wasn't just the best of their breed boy bands, that is; thrushes like Britney, Christina, Mandy, and Jessica are not taken into account here, but that their best moments transcend their era -- and there's really no other way to describe such lovely pop tunes as "I Want It That Way," "As Long As You Love Me," and "Quit Playing Games With My Heart," three songs that would have sounded perfect in any era and their vocals would have worked in any era, too. Those are just the ballads -- the dance-pop numbers may be more tied to their era, but "Everybody Backstreet's Back" and "Larger Than Life" are infectious pop nonetheless. If the rest of the singles that fill out this 13-track collection aren't quite as good as those five songs although "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely" is, they nevertheless are well-crafted, and those aforementioned singles are among the best mainstream pop of its time -- which is not only reason enough for this collection to exist, it's reason enough for pop lovers of any age or generation to have this as part of their library.

    I don't really like this album! I give it 1\2 of a star.

    I think that all this music is not the greatist music and the backstreet boys have a lot more potental. I don't really like any new music like Britney Spears, Blink 182, n'sinc (hope I spelt that right!)and all of the music that sonds all the same. It's all the same!! I hope some day all the people will realize how fake all the new stuff is. The singers/band members where put together by some one only because they where cute. They did NOT make the band!!!!!! THIS IS NOT REAL MUSIC!

    Backstreet Boys: Only The Best

    I am a huge Backstreet Boys fan. When I heard there extra track Drowning, I thought I was going to faint. These guys are mature professionals that know how to please their fans. I played the whole CD all day and I never got tired of it. It is my all time favorite CD. The Greates Hits is an understatement. But it's only chapter one.

    Don't miss out on this great album!!!

    This is a must have for any Backstreet Boys fan even if you are not a fan you should defintely pick up this GREAT album. If you haven't heard their song ''Drowning'' (The only new song on the album) you should just buy the cd for that song. It is an amazing growth for them. I loved the album and I know you will too!

    Why?

    You can't have a greatest hits album after only three (3) album releases and call it ''Chapter One''. This is called ''Selling Out''. Every teenage girl that will probably buy this album most likely already paid for at least two of the releases. So, the girls buy three, and boys get one free. No effort, no (or little) studio work, no talent extended, no new material. And all they do is pick up the royalties. No Thanks.

    Not Worth MY Time that's for sure..

    I think that this CD will appeal to hardcore BSB teeny-bopper fans only. Come On!! Let the whole Boy-Band thing die already will ya? Music fans ages 13-18 are the only reason the boy bands exist, hardly worth the time of a mature 24-year old.

    Backstreet will always come BACK!

    It was a great idea for the Backstreet Boys to release a CD with all of their greatest hit's on it and call it Chapter One. It sends the message that they plan to be around for a long time to come. The CD was a great idea! I can't wait to see what their next chapter will be like!

    Backstreet's back and soars!

    I like the Backstreet Boys in the songs they sing especially their lastest one called ''Drowning''. This boy band came first before *NSYNC, but I think More teens chose NSYNC, because they appeal to a younger audience while Backstreet an older audience. It doesn't matter I like them.

    If you love Backstreet like I do, you will absolutely love this CD. I have never seen a CD with some many hot songs before. This is a CD you can just listen to for hours and think about that special someone in your life. This is a must buy for all you BSB fans. Aaron Carter rulz, YEAH!

    Super-nova! Hotties!

    The Cd is a great way to help the fan to not forget the other great hits before. You may have all three CD already, but this way you won't have to change the CD in your CD player. Since it's their greatest hits, you won't have to skip any song. Not that you should before! All their song's great!!!

    This is a waste!

    All of these songs are on their other cds. If you like the bsb then you probably already have the other cd's so y do u need one with the same songs? All you need to do is download ''Drowning'' and u'll have them all.
