It’s time to adventure back to a time where leg warmers were in and Mark Wahlberg was still with the Funky Bunch and believing that he could rap because New Kids on The Block is back and they have released their newest album. “10” is the newest release from the group and let me tell you; it’s pretty much a trip down from memory lane with the style of music. The album is the group’s seventh studio album in their two-decade span.
Ironically, the album reminds me of the Backstreet Boys’ extremely popular 1999 album “Millennium”. Basically, it reminds me of 90s pop, which is weird since NKOTB has been around since the 80s. Anyways, this album is great especially if you just want relaxation music because that is what you will get with this album. All the songs, especially their single “Remix (I Like That)”, bring something to offer to this album. Most of the songs are what would be considered ballads, which is rare in this day and age.
What didn’t work? Well, the album is just one big ballad fest. Some of the ballads are upbeat but the only song that’s even brings up the thought of dancing is the single. Granted, this isn’t really a bad thing but it’s not something that you would bring to a hardcore dance party. It is the thing that you would bring to a nice tea party or even a small party. I’m going to take it as a good thing that this is the only problem with this album
Overall, this album is a step up from their 2008 release, which we won’t even discuss. If you are a boy bander or just a fan of pop music, then this album is pretty much is a buy for you. This album also sets the boy band album standards high for 98 Degrees, whose album will drop the next month!.
We own tonight
