Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Backstreet Boys' previous outing, Millennium, was a tough act to follow, combining as it did the storming pop of "Larger Than Life" and the sublime balladry of "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely." Black & Blue is a worthy successor, if a slightly more mature sound for the boys. There's plenty of uptempo pop, such as the catchy advice dished out on "Get Another Boyfriend" and the slinky beat-riddled R&B of "Shining Star," nicely balanced with some smooth ballads--you can almost hear the lighters sparking up as the Spanish guitar gently plucks away on "I Promise You (with Everything I Am)." However, it's when they take up immediately where Millennium left off that they are at their strongest: "The Answer to Our Life" and "Not for Me" form a sturdy bridge from their previous output onward to the future. If this is the state of things to come, the future is decidedly rosy for Brian, Kevin, Howie, A.J., and Nick. --Helen Marquis

5.0 out of 5 stars Enter at your own Risk November 30, 2000
By Mollie
Format:Audio CD
I am a mother of a teenage daughter and purchased the cd for her on the day it came out. I opened it and played it in the car on the way home. Upon ariving home I found myself sitting in the car in the garage because I wanted to hear all of the songs. At first listening all I could think of is that I needed to hear it again, and again, and again. A lot of the kids reviewing the cd here are only interested in records and the competition between the 2 boy bands. Get real kids. This cd is so far superior to the No Strings Attached cd that to say anything different is a downright lie. Buy this cd. It is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Backstreet Boys or NSYNC November 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This will be the Backstreet Boys Four studio album and from the first single release The Shape Of My Heart you know that the Backstreet Boys usual high standard is maintained on this album. With other stand out tracks like The Call, Everyone and Time i think that this will be the album that once and for all makes them stand out from all of the other boy bands around and makes people realise that they are the best boyband in the world. So when it comes to BSB or NSYNC there is no comparrison.

5.0 out of 5 stars tHe BoYs ArE bAcK iN tOwN!! November 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, it's the same old BSB sound. "The Call" is the only song that doesn't sound "BSBish". But, it is a jam-packed awesome CD to chill with. It's the same sound, but the same sound works. With all those hit songs and #1 chart toppers, the B-boys know what people like and continue to pump out the tunes. You can tell that the boys put a lot of effort into this CD. They were unheard over the past few months- many said that they weren't coming back and that 'N Sync had taken over the Boy Band world. Now, lemme just say--- The Boys Are Back In Town and continue to reign as pop masters and Boy Band kings of the world. Nick, Brian, Howie, AJ, and Kevin continue to mature and improve, proving so with this amazingly sassy CD full of snappy lyrics and phat tunes. "The Call" is the first CD that actually shows the "bad" side of love, or cheating on your girlfriend. I love the beats and tunes in all the songs. Their are some "slow dance" ballads but there also are the up-beat, jazzy, pumped-up ballads that make you want to jump and dance along. This CD is a must for parties, sleepovers, or just to listen to in the car. It's AWESOME!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back and Better than ever..... November 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
These guys keep getting better with each album! The mark of true talent. Black & Blue is indeed different from the last two albums (for example-"The Call" which will be the second single), though you will find some tracks that have that familiar BSB feel, such as the first single "Shape of My Heart". This is going to be the best album to date from these guys. Do yourself a favor....get over your pre-concieved notions and add this one to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have CD November 25, 2000
By Terry
Format:Audio CD
I think BSB's new 'Black and Blue' CD is a one of a kind sound. It has the sounds of the old BSB and the new sounds of the mature BSB members, Nick, Howie, Brian, Kevin and AJ. They really out did themselves on the album. It even shows thier writing abilities. Their next single, "The Call," is really going to have a great response from their fans. I suggest you go out and buy the CD and find out for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow- amazing variety November 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Backstreet Boys' third album "Black and Blue" has something for everyone. You've got your party songs, slow songs, love songs, soulful songs, fast songs- you name it. And all of them are quality and single material. "Shape of My Heart" was just a bridge from "Millennium" to "Black and Blue"- all the other songs are different and cool in their own ways. The Backstreet Boys just get better and better with time. Plus I love the song "Time"- written by the Backstreet Boys and produced by the one and only Babyface.And last but not least- the BSB wrote/co-wrote about half the album on "Black and Blue." That's pretty good- way to go!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars BSB HAVE DONE IT AGAIN July 3, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As I tell everyone,this is pop music and darn good at that. I happen to be a guy fan (yes,we're out there) One thing I must commend BSB on is their growing adult and male fanbase. Their music is maturing. Their past the "We've Got It Going On" days although they indeed still have it going on!
Now,the music of Black and Blue. Although not quite as flowing as "Millennium" was,it's still an amazing pop album. Millennnium was one in a million and there will never be another like it. Black and Blue DOES have more of a variety,however. It has the perfect wedding song (I Promise You),the perfect graduation song (Time),the perfect dance song (Get Another Boyfriend),and the perfect ballad. Also,many of the tracks were written by BSB! (gasps) You heard me right,people. BSB can write AND they all do unlike another group which will remain nameless. "Shining Star","Answer To Our Life","Time","Yes I Will","It's True","How Did I Fall In Love With You",and "What Makes You Different" (bonus track) were all written or cowritten by BSB. Also,another thing which may shock you is that many of the tracks written by BSB happen to be some of the best tracks on the album! BSB are turning into true artists although many are not willing to admitt it. They showed us they could do it on Millennium and now they're taking it even further. BSB,I'm looking forward to what you're going to do on the next album and I have a feeling I'm not going to be disappointed.

Another quality album from BSB. Coming off the high of the success of Millennium. Black and Blue is a nice follow up with BSB continuing to grow into men. Read more
