It's a teenage fantasy: after enduring countless auditions, five young guys from across the U.S. are chosen to be members of a boy group. They will call Orlando home. They will live together in a house while they prepare their debut album. They will work with legendary record executive Clive Davis. They will be the first to be signed to his new label. They will be filmed every step of the way. If all goes according to formula, they will also be teen heartthrobs with a few hit songs on the radio. So goes the story of O-Town, the group created for and by the ABC television show Making the Band. Taking a step past saccharine pop, O-Town venture into Michael Jackson-inspired R&B ("Girl"), piano-driven balladry ("All or Nothing," which sounds a bit like Bryan Adams), and even straight-up rock ("Love Should Be a Crime" could be sung just as easily by Jon Bon Jovi, but wouldn't sound as good). They also make endless pop culture references, especially in their single, "Liquid Dreams": "I dream about a girl who's a mix of Destiny's Child, just a little touch of Madonna's wild style, with Janet Jackson's smile / Throw in a body like a Jennifer, you've got the star of my liquid dreams." The words aren't the only playful elements here--watching them compete against boy band stalwarts the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync should be just as fun. Even with such tough competition, though, O-Town deserve a chance. With their hit show in its second season and with songs as good as "Liquid Dreams" and "The Painter," they'll get one. --Heidi Sherman

This album was pushed somewhat by "Making the band" but it more then stands on its own feet. It's a great debut for the band. It's sound is the exact boy band sound of the time and they are clearly a group of talented guys singing these songs. Every song on the album is enjoyable and there are a couple monster hits in "All or Nothing" and "Liquid Dreams", and "Love Should Be a Crime" should have been a major hit as it is my favorite song on the album. Great album! Must get for any otown fans or making the band fans. They bring it.

okay. i'll admit it. really, it's time to step out of the dark. i am indeed addicted to o-town. it's quite pitiful actually. i didn't make plans on friday night, in anticipation of making the band. i refer to many of the guys by their full names (ashley PARKER angel. . .erik MICHAEL estrada). like any overly obsessive o-townie (i just made that up. . .clever, eh?), i know that dan miller brings the energy to the group, and that's something ikaika never offered. i acknowledge that trevor is hideously ugly, but there's something endearing about the passion he has for being in a boy band. jacob looks like a huge poser with his nail polish and dreads, but i want to marry his voice. even though they're more manufactured than any other boy band out there, and lou "call me big daaaaadyyyyy" pearlman handpicked them, this cd is infectious and addictive. that's the plain and simple darn truth. i don't like nsync, the backstreet boys, or 98 degrees, so please don't think i'm some boppin' lil girl who is only giving a positive review b/c the guys are "hottttt". (actually, most of them aren't) each song has managed to trap me. believe me, i've tried to pass this little obsession off as a joke, but. . .it's not. scary. here's a bit of insight on each song.
"liquid dreams" - so cheesy. it took me a second to realize that the whole concept of the song is *gasp* dirty. it's very easy to catch yourself singing along, though.
"every six seconds" - one of those songs that just squirms into your brain after you declare that you absolutely hate it. it's priceless to hear trevor saying seductively "halfway to the towel's as far as you get!"
"girl" - yeah, so they're not inventing the wheel here.

As a 30 year old guy, I'm not really "in to" the teenage boy-band craze. However, I thought it would be interesting to watch the ABC show "Making the Band" and see how groups were started. It was very entertaining and interesting to see the "inside" view of the business. I wasn't sure, however, if the young men of this group would accually "make it" in the recording industry. I bought the CD, to see....
This is a good first CD. The music, however has the same theme to it, which I found a little too repetitive. But considering the intended audience, appropriate. Some songs I liked more than others. The first song, which is the title song of this album "Liquid Dreams", was not very appealing to me. It struck me as some kind of "spoof" one might find on an Al Yankovic recording. However, listening to it a few more times I found that it grows you.
I was suprized to see how nicely "All for Love" and "Baby I Would" turned out. These two songs were featured on the TV show, on which it was portrayed as if the guys couldn't get it together. Most of the time they were off-key and it seemed that they were never going to get the "hang" of this "professionial artist" title. They were far from being professionial. With the enhancement that the studio did on these two titles, they have become a hit in their own right!
The one song, however, that I feel will make it big for these guys is "All Or Nothing." This has the makings of being a smash! It's style, meoldy, and lyrical performance has the potential to become the signature song of O-Town, much like "Bye Bye Bye" has done for N'Sync.

Listening to O-town's debut album, it's evident that they are trying to set themselves apart from other boybands of the moment. O-town tends to have more of a rock edge to the songs and the focus is on up-tempo and dance songs instead of ballads. There are some ear-splitting moments where the guys prove that their vocals are not up there with other professional singers, but that's what the studio equipment is for. Here are the tracks: 1. LIQUID DREAMS: This song is almost so cheesy that it's actually good. The melody is really nice, but the lyrics are a little stupid. It wouldn't have been my choice for the first single. It's still pretty good though. 2. EVERY SIX SECONDS: This is my #1 song on the album. It's an awesome dance song with a chorus that just explodes out of the stereo. 3. GIRL: This song's got a nice, unique melody and beat. It's pretty mellow and gets very repetitive towards the end. Kinda stupid. 4. SEXIEST WOMAN ALIVE: This is a really unique song. It's got a really cool melody that's very catchy. It's an upbeat song, but more along the lines of 'nsync's "It Makes Me Ill" (but not as fast). It's very hard to explain. 5. LOVE SHOULD BE A CRIME: This is a complete change! It's a rock ballad, and nothing like a boyband has ever done. This is an awesome song and one of the highlights. It's completely unique from the rest of the album. Sounds like Bon Jovi. 6. SHY GIRL: This is a more classic upbeat boyband song. It reminds me of early BSB songs. It's pretty good. 7. ALL OR NOTHING: This is the power ballad. It's very good though and will be stuck in your head right away. The guys actually sound pretty good on this one. 8. SENSITIVE: I really like this one. It's a very upbeat, catchy dance song. The chorus is really cool. 9. THE PAINTER: This is a really pretty ballad.Read more ›
