Editorial Reviews

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. This is the deluxe version of the Block CD. It comes with 4 extra songs, a fold out poster booklet. Their recent appearance on the Today Show's summer concert series drew one of the biggest crowds the network has seen for such a show.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it 6 if I could September 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great album. Whether you're a new 'new kids' fan or an old one, this album will not disappoint. NKOTB went thru the extra steps to make sure that each song was an all or nothing effort. Lady Gaga, Ne-Yo, Pussycat Dolls, New Edition and many others make great appearances on this album (including a production by Timbaland). But be forewarned... this is not...I repeat NOT...the 80s/90s boyband you once knew. Forget the #1 balads. You won't find that here. The 'kids' have certainly grown up, and their music and lyrics reflect that. This is not a kidd-ish dance album...it's reflective of today's R&B/Pop sexy standards. Sex is the standard...that's a fact of life... and without flat out saying that, the 'kids' have included some songs with some serious adult undertones. Let's face it....their fan base is now in the range of 30-ish, and what their fans listen to has changed over the last 20 years....so the 'kids' knew that they too had to change to fit to what was currently being played on those fans' mp3 players. So! Gone are the 'ohohohohoh' and cheesy keyboards that we all once loved back in the day.... they've now been replaced by a sound that certainly has done a good job of keeping up and changing with the times. Buy the album....and listen to it with an UNBIAS view of who NKOTB once was. This is a new band thru and thru. It may be a reunion for those of us 'block heads'....but it really can not possibly be compared to Hangin' Tough or Step by Step. And this is both in the song types/sounds....and in their voices. Apparently the years have been kind to their voices and ability to haromonize. They are better at that then they were in the past. Possibly because the bar has been raised by other 'accapella' singing boy bands like Nsync. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Likeable New Album September 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was never a fan of the New Kids On the Block when they originally came out because i didn't really get into music as a kid till around after 1992. At that time The New Kids had already faded from public view and the only thing i knew of them was there Saturday morning cartoon along with the MC Hammer cartoon. I picked up there new CD because the song SummerTime is a really nice track & overall i do like the song. I picked up the CD and i do not regret it one bit. It's a great CD and the boys are staying relevant with mainstream music goers and churning out songs that everyone can enjoy. The album has a huge R&B POP feel to it and it really is a great album. Its one of the few albums released this year where i am not constantly skipping from track to track. This album also has huge writing & production from Donnie which to me seems like he is a very talented individual for both singing and acting. Don't rule these guys out as being a silly boy band because there is so much more to them then just their looks. I believe they will make a huge comeback with this CD and they will probably be able to do something the Backstreet Boys & Nsync won't be able to do. To stay relevant and make the fans & music lovers look beyond the band boy image you must have music that everyone loves. The Backstreet Boys are delivering good albums but all the songs are adult contemporary & ballads and doesn't appeal to the young crowd at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Service For Sure September 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Great album. Very upbeat and danceable songs combined with some of the most perfect ballads. After 15 years, they certainly deliver without an ounce of disappointment. Ok, I'm not really so fond of "Grown Man", but that's definitely not enough to rate it anything less than five stars. I'm so glad they're back.

Top songs:
Single
Don't Cry
2 In the Morning
Full Service

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Block" Is Good September 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
When I heard earlier in the year that the 80s band New Kids on the Block was putting out another album, I was rather skeptical. We've seen boy bands come and go, and then attempt to make a comeback. Well, after listening to this new album 'The Block' I can say that I'm surprised and delighted. Yes, there is a certain cheesy factor that comes to play considering this is a boy band and a group that had popularity in the 1980s and a bit of the 90s. BUT, unlike groups like The Backstreet Boys that attempt to shed their 'boy band' image and make more mature music ... that is in turn very dull and lacks the spirit that made them popular to begin with, New Kids really stepped it up and made it sound as if they belonged in this pop/club/r&b genre that this album is set in.

The Good: I think the best songs are those that feature the harmony parts. These songs felt fresher and more true to the whole 'New Kids' image and style. "Summertime" and "Single" are two songs that really stand out because while they're produced by current producers, the group really takes these songs and makes them fun, a tad bit cheesy, but still good. Other songs that stood out were "Stare At You", "Full Service" and "Twisted". While you may be slightly embarrassed to be caught rocking it out to New Kids on the Block, I think these songs which are rather R&B/Dance orientated will satisfy any reservations you may have.

The Bad: Perhaps this is the boy-band syndrome; the songs that attempt to be overly sensual and seductive and just fall a bit flat. "Grown Man" for instance alludes to how these 'New Kids' are going to give their women some 'grown man'. This attempt to be sexual and the lyrics just didn't seem like The New Kids on the Block at all.

Makes their original stuff sound good.
I enjoyed a few of their songs from the 80s. I was curious about their latest album and listened to some previews of the CD. It's a desperate attempt to fit in with current trends and try to sound hip and young again.

Another thing, they think that, by singing about sex, they are trying to be... Read More

Anyone else having problems...
I've had the same problem and came on here to see if anyone else posted. I even went on interscope's website to see if maybe they had posted anything or had an email address. Didn't find anything.

WHOSE VERSION OF "SINGLE" IS BETTER?
while i like Ne-Yo's version. I'm like NKOTB's more, it has a little bit more of an edge with them doing it and him coming in after each lead by the guys.

LUV'N THIS ALBUM!!!
agreed.

I'm really enjoying this cd. I bought the Deluxe Edition myself with 4 addt songs. But some of my favs are Single, Full Service, Summertime, Sexify My Love just to name a few. The boys are back.

What's on the second disc??
There are several additional songs on the first CD plus video content on the second CD if the things I've read up to now are correct. :)
