Backstreet’s back, all right. And sure, there are demographic and cultural reasons for it — a way moms can share their musical crushes with their BTS-loving daughters mixed with a desire to use sweet unabashed pop to escape the increasing stressfulness in uncertain times.
But the main reason the Backstreet Boys successfully engineered this comeback — massive tour, Grammy nomination for the hit “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” — is the music. And “DNA” (RCA) builds on that momentum to create the group’s strongest album in years.
DNA is a 15 tracks album with 12 tracks and 3 bonus track for the Japanese.
