Backstreet Boys Albums
If you were a pre-teen or a teenage girl in the 1990s, chances are you owned at least one of the Backstreet Boys albums. The fresh-faced teenagers stepped onto the music scene when boy bands were at their peak and became overnight celebrities. The Backstreet Boys released numerous albums in the United States and internationally, with their first few receiving more success than the later releases.
"Backstreet Boys" In 1996, the Backstreet Boys released their self-titled album in Asia, Europe, and Canada among other countries. The album was well-received throughout and was one of the best selling debut albums of all time. Singles include the catchy love-songs, "I'll Never Break Your Heart," and "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)."
"Millenium" The band released the highly anticipated "Millenium" just in time for Y2K. Featuring the robotic-themed, techno-sound of "Larger Than Life," and the love ballad, "I Need You Tonight," the album has a song for everyone. The album won five grammy awards.
"Black & Blue" Songs on "Black & Blue" included "Shape of My Heart" and "The Call." The album was released in 2000 and presented the band's song-writing skills, unlike previous albums. The album was a bit more grown up than "Backstreet Boys" and "Millenium."
"Never Gone" After having been flying under the radar for 5 years, the Backstreet Boys attempted to make a comeback in 2005 with "Never Gone." The album was certified platinum and sold over 10 million copies. Singles included "Just Want You To Know," and "Incomplete.
- "Unbreakable" Released in 2007, "Unbreakable" seemed to be missing something: Kevin Richardson, in fact. Nick, Bryan, Howie, and AJ still decided to pursue their musical career as the Backstreet Boys. "Unbreakable" was not nearly as successful as the band's previous albums. Producers Max Martin and Kristian Lundin were also absent from involvement in creating "Unbreakable."
