Album review: Backstreet Boys, DNA

Backstreet Boys are back ‘ but is that alright? The 1990s boyband have, incredibly, sprung to the top of the Billboard charts in the US with their ninth studio album.

It’s their first number one in 19 years ‘ an extraordinary rebirth that follows a Las Vegas residency that has become the fastest-selling and among the most lucrative in the history of Sin City.

But rather than an attempted re-invention, the LP, like the Vegas shows, is a deep dig into nostalgia. With Justin Bieber songwriter Josh Gudwin and U2 collaborator Ryan Tedder among the army of behind the scenes hit-makers, DNA sets sail for the glory days of Nineties hair-gel pop and never diverts its gaze.It’s a unashamed homage to the gooey sound the quintet of AJ McLean, Howie Borough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell were themselves instrumental in minting. ‘Nobody Else’ is a big-lunged ballad that has beamed straight from when Boyzone and Take That were dominant cultural influences.

20 years after they first topped the Billboard 200, Backstreet is officially back, as the Boys have proven that they’ve still got it goin’ on.

DNA is the Backstreet Boys’ third No. 1 album in the U.S., and their first in well over a decade. They first landed at the peak of the Billboard 200 just a few months before the beginning of the new millennium with a record titled, appropriately, Millennium. That album opened with 1.134 million copies, making it one of the largest first weeks in history.

Backstreet Boys Sets New Records on Billboard 200 With ‘DNA’

AceShowbiz – It’s been nearly 20 years since Backstreet Boys last topped Billboard 200. The five-piece group’s new album “DNA” arrives atop the chart, marking their third No. 1 album. The effort racked up 234,000 equivalent album units, including 227,000 in traditional album sales, in the week ending February 1, according to Nielsen Music.

Backstreet Boys last topped the chart in 2000, when “Black & Blue” spent two weeks atop the chart. That’s the longest gap between No. 1s for a group since 2010 when Sade returned at No. 1 after more than 24 years with “Soldier of Love”.
