Strongest album from BSB.

After their self entitled and first release album came out, everybody truly knew that the Backstreet Boys were going to have their share of success at the pop world.  And further more, when Millennium came out, the world just seemed to go nuts.  Their famous tracks, I Want It That Way, Larger Than Life, and Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely helped push this album to the sky top of MTV and all over the world. 

In general, this album has a strong pop feel to it with perhaps less sensation of R&B as other boy bands at the time such as 112 and Jagged Edge had.  Of course, the ballads and slow jams could get a little 'sappy' as do all pop albums do - but in reality, the Backstreet Boys' talent in being able to bring five individual voices together really brings some great music out of the Millennium album.

In comparison to the first album, Millennium definitely slowed it down this time around.  There are many more slow and romantic slow jams and less upbeat rhythms.  I haven't heard the album in a long time, since it's almost been 10 years since its release, but when I came across it today - I certainly remember how I felt when listening to it!

Can't believe there are so many reviews of Millenium on Lunch! Loved this album in middle school. Don't hate!

The Backstreet Boys were totally on top of their game with Millennium.  It's what meade me take notice that perhaps they weren't just about "bubble gum pop" anymore.  Songs such as "Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely" and a few other's paved this album to be a top seller around the world.  Their first single from the album "I Want It That Way" quickly shot up the charts and defined what the Backstree Boys were all about.

"Millennium" was truly the Backstreet Boys' best album ever. It is one of their only albums you can actually just listen all the way through and all the songs are great! It also has some of their best hits, like "I Want It That Way" and "Larger than Life". Definitely a must have album for "bubble gum pop" fans.
