Music is a timeless art. However, the creators of this timeless art are usually limited to a small window of prime time opportunity to have their music on the charts. The wish is to stay in the music game as long as possible, then hope that the music you’ve made is recognized as classics. Well, it appears the rules don’t apply to the legendary Backstreet Boys who managed to make their way back to the top of the charts with a new album titled DNA.
The beloved Backstreet Boys are arguably the most iconic boy band groups of the ’90s, basically setting the soundtrack of the decade with classics like “I Want it That Way” and “As Long as You Love Me.” Now, most of the men in the group are over 40 and married with children but their love for music can still be heard all over their latest album.
The album begins with the song “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” which sets the tone for the album, with the pop production that we’ve grown accustomed to listening to today, showcasing how the Backstreet Boys have evolved and adapted while still keeping their essence, sounds and vocals that people know and love them for.
The Backstreet Boys sound comfortable on each and every track, not clustered, or forced, or too old school for the new. The production, instruments and vocals throughout this twelve track project are extraordinary. Especially on the song “Breathe” where they sound like they’re in their twenties and you forget the fact that their prime was 25 years ago.
It’s important to note that even if the 2019 Backstreet Boys don’t make a big hit like their past songs, we still get great music from a great group who knows their essence and knows their identity, and that’s shown on their 8th major studio album, DNA. The Backstreet Boys are now men, they’ve spent about three decades in the music business, and they don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
