5.0 out of 5 stars Very good! October 22, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered the album and I was so happy when I received it. The past 2 albums were just not very good to me and I have been a fan since I was 13 (I am now 24.) So, I was very happy when I listened to the album b/c it sounds like the old Backstreet Boys! I listen to it all the time and never seem to get tired of it. Here is my song review break down:

1. Straight Through My Heart: This is a GREAT song that the rdio stations just didnt get a chance! If this was anyone else's song it would have been a top 10 hit.

2. Bigger: This is the only sing produced by the great Max Martin that is responsible for most of BSB's past hits. This song was good, but it wasnt up to Max or BSB's standards. Not one of my favories, but still better than all the songs on the last 2 albums. I am unsure as to why this is going to be the 2nd single. It is like they are doing things like they did before they got big in the US. Their main attention is overseas. Maybe it will work this time around too!

3. Bye Bye Love: This one has a nice R&B sound. It doesn really sound like "Forever" by Chris Brown that much. I do, however, see a R&B singer making this a #1. BSB could make this a #1 if the stations would give it a chance. Very good song.

4. All Of Your Life (You Need Love): This is not a favorite. I wish this would have been replaced by Hologram, which didnt make the cut for some reason.

5. If I Knew Then: I LOVE LOVE this song! AJ does a great job with lead vocals. I see this being a hit! This should be the 2nd single! One of my favorites!

6. This Is Us: A lot of people didnt like this song, but I love it. It is one of those songs that grows on you the more you listen to it. It is one of my favorites. I see this being a hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars There Best Album yet. November 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have all of their albums and this is by far the best. This album was so well done that i really dont have a favorite because their all great songs. You get an r&b sound for both ballads and up tempo's. It's really good the way they mixed it up. Normally BSB are known for their pop ballads but this album will blow your mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three steps forward two steps back... October 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow...just wow...where to start?! Let me say that I have been a fan of theirs since BSB first came on the scene (we're talking concerts, ALL their cd's, etc - I've even met the guys, who are great btw) I'm still a fan and they are one of the only bands who cd I buy on release day, but I must say this is the first album I'm a bit disappointed in. I understand wanting to make a pop cd these days means dance songs but these songs (and their lyrics) are beneath, I think, the audience they started with in the beginning - I think the younger, newer, fans will probably enjoy this album more than ones who've been following the guys for awhile. I enjoy dance songs as much as the next person but BSB is known for making a great ballad and bringing out their beautiful harmonies and that aspect seems to be lost on this album. They aren't a "clubbin'" band so while it's great to see them getting in touch with their roots and going with some more upbeat music an entire album of songs that sound similar to each other just doesn't captivate me as much as some of their previous albums. I'm glad to have them back but I'm hoping the next album wont make them out to be a bunch of boys - as they are now men.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty standard. October 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Being long-time fan, I am in agreement with 3 or 4 star rating. This is an okay standard album for them, no Millennium, but it's hard to compare with being on top. Glad they are still together. Favorite cut is 'All of Your Life'. AJ does a great job on 'If I Knew Then', 'Masquerade' is pretty standard BSB, 'PDA' is just stupid. I will still buy their albums.

By P. Chu
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying this is their most enjoyable full album in a while..yes their last few albums had a few gems on each..but "This is Us" has a lot more to offer. And also, you should "hunt" for the Bonus CD Disc Version of "This is Us" as this bonus disc is a great stand alone album itself. (not the DVD)

1. "Straight Through My Heart" Written By: (AJ Junior, Kinnda Hamid, Bilal Hajji, Novel Jannusi) Produced By: (RedOne) -- 3:27
10/10- Produced by Redone (who produced Lady Gaga's Just Dance & Poker Face) a great uptempo song that has shades of Airwave by Rank 1

2. "Bigger" Written By: (Max Martin, Tiffany Amber and Shellback) Produced By: (Max Martin) -- 3:16
8/10- Max Martin....has produced so many BSB hits (I want it That way, etc..)...as well as so many other pop stars mid-tempo..great song..needs a dance remix to make it monster huge

3. "Bye Bye Love" Written By: (Carsten Schack, Kenneth Karlin and Claude Kelly) Produced By: (Soulshock & Karlin) -- 4:20
8/10 toe tapping - very reminiscent of Chris Brown's "Forever"

4. "All of Your Life (You Need Love)" Written By: (RedOne, Prince Charles) Produced By: (RedOne) -- 3:55
9.5/10 Another RedOne hot single..very very catchy uptempo song

5. "If I Knew Then" Written By: (Carsten Schack, Kenneth Karlin and Claude Kelly) Produced By: (Soulshock & Karlin) -- 3:16
10/10- AJ showcasing some great vocals...very catchy

6. "This is Us" Written By: (Howie Dorough, Jim Jonsin and Jordan Omley) Produced By: (Jim Jonsin) -- 3:03
6/10 my least favorite maybe my grade is too harsh, as it stands out from the whole album, and not in the best way..but still good..just something about it doesn't sit right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit Of Different Sound But Still BSB
It's a great album but not as good as Black & Blue in my opinion. They also sound a bit different but it's still the BSB you know and love. Pay attention to "Bye Bye Love". Read more
