With more than 75 million records sold worldwide, the Backstreet Boys were the boy band to beat in the late '90s. The quintet has scored a dozen Top 40 hits, including the Top 5 favorites "I Want It That Way" and "Quit Playing Games (with My Heart)." After taking a four-year break from making music, Backstreet's back, and they don't miss a harmonious beat in Unbreakable, featuring the riveting first single "Inconsolable."

Unbreakable based on 0 ratings. 17 reviews.
I've heard all the songs and I absolutely love this CD! Of course I miss Kevin but the BSB have taken their music to a new level it is amazing.
This is def. their best album yet! They stayed true to their sound and added some upbeat dance beats as well as their classic pop tunes. LOVE THEM! ALWAYS DID ALWAYS WILL! They admit they are a boy band and obviously the last one standing! :oD So Sexy!!! Love you guys! Buy this cd, its a no brainer...it should be in your cart by now :o"...for real plus they WROTE most of the tracks, def. showing off that they are multitalented! :o" Love them!
I have loved bsb for almost 14 years. They rule. I know unbreakable will out do never gone even though i loved never gone. Bsb is still the best group ever.
I have already had the opportunity to listen to this cd. Let me tell you, they have the ability to stay up to date with the current sound of today. This is one of their best albums. They're not afraid to take on the obsticals that come their way. Even without Kevin Richardson, They can still keep the bsb pride alive!
After hearing the album, I told my wife that there was no way a critic could bash this album. Here is my take on the new BSB album since I've already heard it. It is, by far, the best Pop album made in a very long time! The intro is great, it shows that they are talented and not a "Boy Band". Everything But Mine- is nothing like Duran Duran! Great song to hear in a club. Inconsolable- is classic BSB, I couldn't believe they chose it for the first single, it's a sleeper song. Something That I Already Know- WOW! One of their best songs EVER! Should have been the first single! Helpless When She Smiles- Good song, another sleeper. Any Other Way- A very good song! One In A Million- once again,this is a GREAT song! The previous songs are like an 80's pop-punk sound. Panic- MY FAVORITE!!!!!!!! Great song! Upbeat, new sound, you name it! You Can Let Go- a great feel good song. Great harmonies! Trouble Is- My wife's favorite song. She played it for her class of eighth graders and they thought it was Chris Doughtry (spell?). I think it should be released on the country stations. Treat Me Right- is an awesome song! This could do great on radio. Upbeat, new style, and funky. Love Will Keep You Up All Night- classic BSB. Good song. Unmistakable- WOW! This is another one that I would have picked for the first single. Great message, eerie/smooth sound. Unsuspecting Sunday Afternoon- I love the way this begins! A great closing to the record. Classic BSB with new, mature sound, just like the album. All previous BSB albums have at least one cheesy bubble gum song, not on this album. Unbreakable, which was written, produced, A and R ed by the BSB, shows that they are growing in music and should have always been more involved in the producing of their albums. If you are a pop music fan, YOU MUST GET THIS ALBUM!
I have loved the Backstreet Boys for ten years now and will continue to love them until the end of time. I love this CD! This one of their best CDs yet. It's not the same without Kevin, but I bet he is so proud of them. I hope they continue to entertain their adoring fans as they have for the past 15 years. If you have never experienced the phenomenon of the Backstreet Boys, I highly recommend you do so. You will be blown away by ther amazing voices! I hope they have more continued success in the years to come.
This CD is amazing, and every track has the potential to become a hit! It sounds similar to their Millenium album, and focuses more on their strengths as a vocal group. AMAZING CD!
It's been awhile since the backstreet boys have had a hit, but they've come back with a bang! Their latest cd is awesome! And for all you bsb fans out there, you should get it right when it hits stores, because they'll sell fast!!!!
