Backstreet Boys, are they unbreakable?


I couldn't help but smile as I woke up this morning. My late nineties obsession was the Backstreet Boys. I wasn't allowed to put their posters on my wall, but if I could, they would have covered every square inch. I even got to meet Kevin while at the Superbowl in Tampa. This was when TRL was still cool, mind you. Either way, I always rushed out the first day one of their albums dropped so that I could start memorizing their catchy pop ballads.
And so today, on the first day of the release of yet another album, "Unbreakable", I couldn't help but smile. I already have the tracks on my Ipod. Even Kevin-less the Backstreet Boys have managed to find a way back into my heart. Maybe I like the music because it takes me back to a time of innocence, and fun-before college, exams, term papers, and work. It reminds me of a period when music was a culture that permeated the hallways of my junior high school. We used to dance to "Bye Bye Bye" (Nsync was another favorite), and sing along with "Oops I did It Again". And, while Britney's comeback may be more vocalized, and less successful, the Backstreet Boys slip back into mainstream from almost obscurity is just plain refreshing.
The songs on the album most closely resemble their first work. The harmonies are tight, the lyrics profound, and the rhythm enchanting. If anything, the boys have gotten better with age. What impresses me most is that they stuck with their bases. They could have gone more techno, or rock for that matter, but instead they stuck to the soulful ballads that put them on the map. So while the boy band phase has faded, sorry to all those 98 degrees, LFO, and LMNT groupies out there, and solo acts have stolen the spotlight (Justin Timberlake, Nick Lachey, etc.) the Backstreet Boys continue to prove that they are "Invincible".

No comment on the backstreet boys..I remember when they made girls cry at sight...but I caught them today on Regis and Kelly and they seem to really have a clear grounded image of who they are...which is quite cool to see in an environment like the entertainment industry- they truly come across as cool people and musicians who actually can sing and offer creative input to their musical output...I have to say though Kevin was my favorite when I got their first cd- why is he not with them now? can anyone fill me in?
