    This is Us Review

    Post  Jenny Li on Fri Nov 06, 2009 9:29 pm

    Titles: This is Us Review, This is Us (Not really), This is Us?

    This Is Us (2009)
    The long awaited album, “This is Us” marks the return of one of the boy band groups that started it all, The Backstreet Boys. After a decade of absence, the boys-now-turned-men have struggled against obstacles like the departure of Richardson, to reunite and release another CD. With the help of artists and producers such as T-Pain, RedOne, and Max Martin the Backstreet Boys have put together an album many looked forward to.
    Released on October 6, the album reached #2 on iTunes on its release date in USA and Canada and overall received positive reviews. However, despite the positive feedback and warm welcomes the album has experienced, dedicated Backstreet Boy fans frowned upon the new elements that have been incorporated into their new music. Fans such as Junior Andrew Chang rants, “This album is basically a combination of their teenage pop years with a bucketful of modern promiscuity added in. It’s random and not their style, which disappoints me because it just goes to show how much popular demand influences artists.”
    Many fans mourn over the fact that it seemed to them as if the producers were the ones in charge and the singers were merely following directions. Compared to their older music, the style in this album has made a major shift from innocent love to illicit sexual themes. Some people even admit it’s a tad disturbing in seeing men in their late thirties singing about “Kissin and touchin with [their] hands all over [someone's] booty.” (PDA). This attempt at taking a more adult like approach has failed miserably and even borderlines on lechery to some.
    However, besides the inappropriate use of sexual themes, the Backstreet Boys still retain a strong vocal base that makes the album worth listening to. Along with the release of this new album, the revived Backstreet Boys have planned a worldwide tour that has started in the fall of 2009 and will continue to the spring of 2010. Overall, “This is Us” should be recommended only to long time Backstreet Boys fans because to new listeners it not leave a strong impression.

    The long awaited album, This is Us marks the return of one of the boy band groups that started it all, the Backstreet Boys. After a decade of absence, the boys-now-turned-men have struggled against obstacles such as the departure of Richardson to reunite and release another CD [Are you saying Richardson left in order to reunite and release another CD or is a reunion and release of another CD another obstacle they struggled against? Also, when you first mention somebody, use their full name]. With the help of artists and producers such as T-Pain, RedOne, and Max Martin, the Backstreet Boys have put together an album many looked forward to.
    Released on Oct. 6, the album reached #2 on iTunes on its release date in the U.S [spelled out as United States when used as a noun] and Canada and overall received positive reviews.

Compared to their older music, the style in this album has made a major shift from innocent love to illicit sexual themes. Some people even admit it’s a tad disturbing to see men in their late thirties singing about “Kissin' and touchin' with [their] hands all over [someone's] booty.” (PDA). This attempt at taking a more adult-like approach has failed miserably and even borders on lechery to some.
    However, besides the inappropriate use of sexual themes, the Backstreet Boys still retain a strong vocal base that makes the album worth listening to. Junior Cherry Mo disagrees with Andrew and says, “Well maybe they’re just trying out something new and even though it’s not really working they tried their best and I think they still sound amazing.” Along with the release of this new album, the revived Backstreet Boys have planned a worldwide tour that started in the fall of 2009 and will continue to the spring of 2010.
