Editorial Reviews

If anything will drive a nail into the Backstreet Boys' coffin, it's this surprisingly impressive solo album from Nick Carter. The first of the Fab Five to break out on his own, Carter reveals a rocker's heart that's lurked under his high-gloss pop exterior. While he rasps and struts through his 12-song debut, we're not talking headbanging mayhem here. Carter excels in the brand of guitar rock that put Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams on the map. The elder Carter conjures the militaristic flamboyance of Queen on "Girls In The USA," or the teasing coyness of "Raspberry Beret"-era Prince on "My Confession." The anthemic "Is It Saturday Yet" is another highlight. Despite a seven-year tenure singing other people's songs as a member of America's favorite boy band, Carter proves himself an able tunesmith, penning five of the tracks on the disc, and plays some fine guitar. --Jaan Uhelszki

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Debut November 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Not at all what I was expecting. I wouldn't have even bought the album except that I had to admit that I liked the first release "Help Me". I expected it to be mostly Pop with a poor rock attempt as Jive records tried to push another teen pop sensation on the world and drain every last dime out of him before the craze died completely. What I heard instead was an honest attempt at an artist trying to grow. The songs show some personal growth, but still Mr. Carter still needs to polish his writing skills. The best songs on the album are "Help Me", "My Confession" and "Do I Have to Cry for You". While the lyrics aren't the best, the music and performace of "Miss America" and "Blow Your Mind" are fun and upbeat tunes. Nick Carter sounds incredibly like Brian Adams on "Do I Have To Cry For You." This album brings back some of the 80's rock. I am impressed and not dissapointed that I own this album. I will be very interested to see the young man's next efforts. I love the 80's music of Bryan Adams, Journey, Bon Jovi etc. While Nick Carter is not at that level, he shows potential for that kind of music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nick Has Done It! October 29, 2002
By Amy
Format:Audio CD
Nick Carter's first solo CD has distinguished himself from his boy band days. The CD overall is full of a mix between rock/pop! I really enjoyed it and I would seriously recommend it! The bonus CD is totally wicked! It is actually worth having, because it does have some fun things on it, unlike some other bonus CD's with just a music video on it.
1. Help Me- His first single, awesome! Really catchy, and show's his rock side.
2. My Confession - Love this song!
3. I Stand For You - Wicked Song! A very rockish feel. It made me get up and start dancing.
4. Do I Have To Cry For You - A wonderful ballad. It has a backstreet boy feel.
5. Girls In The US - Again a rock feel! A great song
6. I Got You - A different song then the rest, but still has a good catchy beat.
7. Is It Saturday - Probably the worst song on the CD. It didn't appeal to me at all.
8. Blow Your Mind - Again not a very good song. It has a Bon Jovi feel to it
9. Miss America - An excellent song. It's very laid back and enjoyable.
10. I Just Want To Take You Home - Reminds me of "Help Me". A good song
11. Heart Without A Home (Ill be yours) - Wickedly sang ballot.
12. Who Needs The World - Very sweet song. It ends the CD with a good overall feeling.
Awesome CD everyone should pick it up : D

5.0 out of 5 stars Nick Carter's New CD is Amazing!!!!! October 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Backstreet Fan for the past five years and Nick Carter has always been my favorite. When I heard that he was releaing a solo album I wasn't sure what to expect, but when I listened to his new album, "Now or Never," I was totally amazed. Every song on the album is great. Nick has the traditional ballads such as "Do I Have To Cry For You," "Heart Without A Home," and "Who Needs the World." This album though, also features a new side to Nick. Songs like "Girls in the USA," "Blow Your Mind," and "I Stand For You," show Nick singing songs with more of a rock n' roll flavor. This album is perfect for the BSB fan, but I also think a lot of other people will be surprised by this album because it really has something for all music fans. Order "Now or Never" now and you wont be disappointed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now or Never HOT HOT HOT! October 30, 2002
By Chelsea
Format:Audio CD
After being the heart-throb of one of the most popular groups in the world, the Backstreet Boys, Nick Carter has the chance to say what he's been holding inside most of his life. Keeping with him his pop sound in ballads like "Do I Have To Cry For You" and "Who Needs The World" he also has a chance to rock out his rackin' brain! In songs like "I Got You" and "My Confession," Nick still has a bit of pop mixed with rock to make his own edgy sound. What more is there to ask? Well, in his Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams type rockin' songs, "Girls in the USA" and "I Just Wanna Take You Home," the once-boyband, now-rockstar artist has the chance to bust out some drums and go crazy! In song like "Miss America" and "Do I Have To Cry For You," you can practically hear the pain in Nick's voice! I'd say Nick's album is a HUGE success you're gonna help him make happen!

4.0 out of 5 stars Now Or Later November 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
You would like to know more about this album as you are deciding to buy it now, or never. I'll separate my review into several different sessions so you can find *YOUR* own session(s) when you're reading this :)
Review Guide: General Review > *YOUR* session! > Conclusion!
***General Review...
With a special delicate voice, the artist also engaged himself in writing some of the beautiful songs. It's a ROCK album with a lot of drum and bass and I just like the lyrics of the songs. It's not always talking about love and relationship. Take an example:
"Help me, figure out the difference between right and wrong, weak and strong, day and light where I belong." See? It's sorta fresh and gives an extension of music listening. Some party songs can also be found like "Is it Saturday yet? Cuz' I wanna get up...cuz' it feels like a saturday." and Nick even makes fun with his little brother in the verse "...and it wouldn't matter if Marther Stewart was my mother and Aaron Carter is my brother cuz' I'll still be bad!" Some boys-group-style songs like "Heart Without A Home" are included and some fast rock songs like "I Stand For You" and "Blow Your Mind" are enclosed. Oh and don't forget one or two touching songs like "Do I Have To Cry For You" and "Who Needs The World". So it's EVERYTHING. Pick the DVD if possible, too, though it doesn't contain much content.
Last but not least, I recommend "I Got You", "I Just Wanna Take You Home" and also "Scandalicious" (bonus track) for fresh-first-random-listen.
***If you're a Backstreet fan...
You're supposed to have bought this album already!
