You know ’em, You love ’em, you can’t live without them. New Kids on The Block are back with their first new music in 14 years.
“Click Click Click – It starts off sounding like any other boy band. And then you’ll say to yourself “okay, its tolerable” and then they sing: “bounce for me/bounce for me.” And then you say to yourself: “this can’t be serious.” Sadly it is.
“Single” – NKOTB are full of old guys and still they sound like they are singing to teenage girls. There is something very disturbing about the whole thing. They should have just gave this song to Chris Brown.
“Big Girl” f/Lady Gaga – This isn’t for teenage girls, thank the Lord, but NKOTB sound like they are the backup group as Lady Gaga steals the show.
“Summertime” – “Big Girl” would have been a better single than this weak attempt at reinventing the Backstreet Boys.
“Dirty Dancing” – You can always tell how old someone is by what or who they reference–in this case it references a movie from the 1980s.How old are these guys anyway?
“Sexify My Life” – It doesn’t get much worse than this. At one point they are singing for teenage girls and they next they are trying to sexify their lives–you can feel how lame it is just by saying those words.
The New Kids on the Block are back and the real question is: “who cares?” They were irrelevant after their third album (the first one bombed). NSYNC was more popular and even created a superstar out of one of their members–that never happened with any NKOTB member. It’s hard to really write anything more other than its a bad album from a bunch of older guys wanting to be superstars again.The biggest problem is that they are all older, but apparently not wiser–the proof is in the music.
