Backstreet Boys stuck in a pattern

The Backstreet Boys are have been stuck in a pattern despite celebrating and returning with Unbreakable (Jive Records) to the scene 10 years after releasing its first album. I am in no way impressed. And for good reason.

The boys and like its counterpart N'Sync were the modern day of The New Kids on the Block in the early 1980s and yet one would think that these four members (with its fifth member Kevin Richardson) would in some way look toward creating a new sound and look for way to get out of its same pattern. That is nowhere to be found on this album.

Can I just say that there are fans who are looking for a reason to continue to get your album? Now, I know that members have tried to go solo (i.e. Backstreet Boy Brian, because there is no sense in doing the last name) but that didn't work either. It could be said that nobody has had the success of Justin Timberlake from either boy band.

Album trashy...on all cylinders.

Rating: 2 out 5
