3.0 out of 5 stars EXCUSE MY NOSTOLGIA!... January 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I just listened to my long-lost tape of New Kids On The Block's
"Cover Girl" and oh man,did that bring back memories!!
That song transported me from now to the Summer of '89!
I know I might get laughed at,but I LOVE THAT SONG!!
And..."Hangin' Tough" is without a doubt,probably,the best
boy band album EVER(excluding maybe,New Edition or BBD).
New Kids On The Block were as processed and hated on as the
boy bands of today(they were basically a white washed New Edition) but in my opinion they are far better than Backstreet
Boys and N'Sync.They had great teenybop pop songs!
I still remember the dance steps from the "(You Got) The Right Stuff" video and I still know all the words to this album's title track too!
Oh,man,I know I may laughed big time folks but I mean the late
'80s and the early-to-mid '90s have so many memories and me being
a music fanatic,the music brings back the memories.Hope you understand!
Plus,you have to admit the teen stars of then are way more talented and groomed than the pesky teenyboppers of today!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right stuff! May 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's particularly sad to see how many manufactured boy bands there are out there nowadays when you consider that raw talent such as the New Kids was allowed to flourish not much more than a decade ago. The title track is great to listen to if you want to get psyched up before an important business meeting or date - just don't get overexcited as I once did and ask your ladyfriend if she is 'tough enough'. That minor quibble aside, this is one of the best albums ever made. Go get!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good breakthrough album for them! May 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I still like "Hangin Tough" today. Although half of the songs consisted of ballads, it was good pop for its time. Maurice Starr's dinky-sounding keyboards from it have me still humming to them today. The Right Stuff and Hangin Tough were tough sounding songs in their beats and sounds. I'll Be loving You Forever still sounds pretty. And I still like "I Remember When", even though they go on and on for nearly two minutes on the closing chorus. But the song I still like is the rock-driven guitar on "Hold On." To me that was the most challenging on the album. It sometimes recalls '70s rock in some ways and just amazes me every time I hear it. Donnie Wahlberg sounded good on it too. This song separates itself from the mostly teen pop that dominates the album and perhaps their most experimental. So before you dismiss it as another teen pop album, think about track 10 too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A millon times better than today's acts January 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Like many other preteen girls, I was entranced by NKOTB in the 1980s (Donnie in particular) and owned eveysingle tape possible. Although I never got to see them in concert, I also boasted a moderate collection of poster, dolls, t-shirts and a pillow. Perhaps also indicative of my later conversion to Rock, this was my favirote albumn of all time.
Unlike the earlier and Step by Step, this attempts to place the kids within the rough and rugged world of the inner city. No shiny metal vests and blond highlights here because these kids are seen on a graffitti strewn subway (among other dingy places) in the video for "Please Don't Go Girl" This is definely not the type of music that would later be associated with boy groups..
Donnie does the vocals for the title track which is just fine with me because I never fully understood why such large numbers of my classmates were going gaga over Joe and or Jordan. He also does the inherently lighter cover girl, and I still can't believe he did not sing more songs for the group because he was great in his own right Through no faults of their own, Joe and Jordan simply had too high vocal ranges for my tastes, and should have not been the primary singers for this band.
Unlike so many of today's groups, the lyrics for a preteen audience were far more innocent and comforting. Although I am hardly a proponent of the music censorship movement, I would like to see less in your face sexuality aimed at an elementary and junior high audience. Sure, some people might still cringe at this band, but we have the admit they had a lot more originality than today's wannabe pimps (who unlike the band members) did not experience a hardnock life before stardom.

5.0 out of 5 stars brings back memories August 31, 2001
By cathy
Format:Audio CD
I can still remember the day I saw the new kids on Mtv with I will be loving you for ever I was hooked after that I recently moved and when I was packing came across my new kids beach towel and water bottle and my vidoes I put on a few months back and it brought back so much of my teen years. I loved these guys and I will always be proud of that I still like them. I would recommend this album and step by step the greatist hits I'am looking forward to bhying to hear all the hits I loved. Thankyou NKOTB for great teen years you are missed loveing you forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Talk about being transported back in time! November 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While the 1980's were not the best time to be growing up (plenty of money and tax breaks for the ultra-rich, unapologetic corporate greed, and nothing to do for the children of the working middle class except create trouble), I can't help but smile whenever I listen to New Kids on the Block, especially their sophomore effort, "Hangin' Tough," the album that put them over the top on the pop charts.

I recently came upon a copy of their 1989 videotape of the same name, a half-hour compliation of their hits at the time (four videos: "Please Don't Go Girl," "You Got It (The Right Stuff)," "I'll Be Loving You Forever," and the title track) along with clips of their life on the road, backstage pranks and even Jordan Knight playing the piano beautifully, and it reminded me of a more innocent time (to use a cliche).

I smiled as I listened to their harmonizing and to the lyrics pledging innocent love, as opposed to the groups that came after them (Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, 98 Degrees, etc.) that tried doing the same and came off beyond plastic.

New Kids were the first super group - the model for the five-member boy bands such as the aforementioned - to make an impact on young teenaged girls and they were also the first group to be mass marketed to the extent that they were (drawing inevitable comparisons to the way The Beatles were marketed a generation before, although The Beatles' image didn't appear on every conceivable item in the 60's like New Kids would be in the 80's and early-90's).
