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.

Worst song: Just Like You Like It

But, to be honest with you,I liked IN A WORLD LIKE THIS, THis is US more. Cause They don't have Straight through my heart or permanent stein level songs anymore.

The song i liked the most was 'Chances' cause this type isn't BSB style. In recent days with all those lousy excuse for musics one song really made my heart tremble when i first listened to WHAT ARE THE CHANCES. ... read more
