With DNA, a revitalized Backstreet Boys exude an assured confidence, taking enough steps forward to continue their pop maturation without ignoring the hooks and harmonies that carried them all this way.

The Guardian
This, the band suggests, is what is in Backstreet’s new DNA: well-manicured music that cannily plunders contemporary chart sounds and plonks a pitch-perfect harmony on them. Are they original? Not any more, but world domination awaits anyway.

'DNA' is a solid pop album and a surprisingly nice comeback for the Backstreet Boys. Of course one wouldn't expect a new Backstreet Boys album in 2019 to be anything more than trend chasing to restore a former glory no one particularly wants, but that's not present here. Is it a spectacularly crafted pop album? Of course not. Does it relish a bit in its nostalgia factor? Perhaps a bit, but neither of these statements take away from the facts.
