Overview

Millennium

The Backstreet Boys finally broke (and broke big) in America during 1998, as if by design. They had been Euro sensations for a couple of years, but it wasn't until Backstreet's Back was unleashed in the U.S. in 1997 that they had a presence in the States, and it was no small presence, either -- after selling over ten million copies, the album remained in the Top 40 on the eve of the release of its sequel, Millennium. And sequel is the appropriate word -- Millennium has no pretense of being anything other than an album for the moment, delivering more of everything that made Backstreet's Back a blockbuster. There's a familiar blend of ballads and dance-pop, a similar shiny production, a reliance on the Boys' charisma that brings to mind the debut. If Millennium were anything other than big, glossy mainstream pop, such calculation may be a little unseemly, but in this context, it can be rather fun. True, the album doesn't pack as much punch as its predecessor -- there's a number of good songs, but more filler than before, and the Backstreet sound isn't as fresh as it was the first time around -- but it does deliver what fans want: more of the same. And since there are singles as infectious as "I Want It That Way" and a handful of good ballads, that will be enough to satisfy anyone craving more, more, more.

It is indeed a great start for a brand new Millenium from the boys to the hearts of their fans! The title itself suggests what a brand new them in terms of their ever refreshing music and album. Definitely this is going to be one of my most favourite albums in my collection!

this album you have to get it. it is soo good the harmonys have gotten stronger and they define the word music i reccomend every body to get it.

NO!!! If you want excellent talent, excellent bods, and excellent music, listen to these guys and they'll take you all the way. If you don't want those three things, check out N'SYNC. BSB is even awesome live and are unbelievably sweet people. You go guys!

These guys are the BEST!!! Brian is obviously the big talent of the group, but they're all AWESOME! And their music is clean without being immature. While some other groups are dishing out racier lyrics to seem grown up, Backstreet has accomplished the same thing through wholesomeness. Keep it up!

I THINK THIS IS A REALLY GOOD C.D. MY FAVORITE SONG ON THIS C.D.IS THE ONE.

i think that bsb is da bomb but NOT because there cute (don't get me wrong i know there cute) but because they work soo hard at their music. also because they gave up most of their free-time to make their fans happy and also because it's what they wanted and i admire that because they (and as my old teacher would say reach for the stars) went for it and achieved their goals.

The Backstreet Boys are totally awesome. This CD is so good. All the songs are wonderful. I think that they are the best 'boy band' out there. This is a MUST CD for everyone's collection. So if you don't already own it, then buy it!

No offense, there are some nice songs. I particularly like ¿I Want It That Way¿ and ¿Show Me The Meaning of Being Lonely.¿ They went zero for seven at this year¿s Grammy Awards. Good for them `cause Santana¿s ¿Supernatural¿ rolled on them!!

Millennium to me is better in some ways than the first cd but the first cd is better is some ways because it has more faster songs. Either way Millennium is a five-star cd and everyone who is anybody should already have it!

Backstreets millenium is awesome. It is a major bomb. Every backstreets fan should have one. Including you.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is a good album in that every song is good to listen to. I don't skip any of the songs on this album. *nsync has a couple of good songs on thier but what makes the BackstreetBoys superior is that ALL of their songs are good. I can't wait untill the next cd comes out. I'm a major BSB fan now. Thanks Vanessa (my suitemate) for introducing me to the world of BSB and rescuing me from *NSYNC fad-dom.
