New Kids on the Block released the video for the new single “One More Night.” Sigh.

Look, I really tried to like the song, and it’s a good song, it’s just they could have done way more with it and way better. I had really high hopes that the video would be able to make the song stand out more. Like many things in life, I was wrong.

The video is pretty much NKOTB brooding in different locations and singing. Then there is a small break where they all meetup and the perform in what I believe to be a night club or a back alley. I’m hoping for a nightclub because NKOTB wouldn’t survive in a back alley….okay, maybe Danny would. That’s it for the video. There are no women in it that they are singing to. If they are, then you really need to look for them.

Now I’m all for making a compelling music video with simplicity but there’s a line. The line marks when it’s good and sadly, NKOTB didn’t even hit the line. The video is too simple and doesn’t really help tell the story they are wanting to tell in the music video should be a visual of the story that the lyrics and melody are telling. They really could have made their song better with the video.It also seems like they shot the video in a hurry. That’s the only thing I could think of that would explain why the video just simple that it’s bad.

Overall, the video isn’t the greatest thing in the world. It’s eh. They could have done more with it. If they probably put more effort into it, the video would have made the song work.

Here’s the video for your eyes to see:

NKOTB gets a little sensual in new single

OMN-sm

The greatest boy band of all time-yes,its true-New Kids on the Block released their latest single “One More Night” last night and boy, it is something that I wasn’t expecting. You think that I would at least consider it due to the song title, but nah.

“One More Night” is the first single off their newest EP “Thankful,” mark your calendars now because it’s due out on May 12. The song is a song about hooking up….yep! It’s not like 98 Degree’s song “Microphone” where they cleverly hid it, but it’s not up to the level of their younger counterparts.

The beat in this song is amazing and is perfect for the “get it own style” that are going for. The lyrics are just the problem. The lyrics are really up to the NKTOB standard that separated them when they release “10” back in 2013. Those lyrics were way better than any pop group/artist released at the time. Hell, they are still better than most of the lyrics in 2017. I just wish that there was more substance to the lyrics.

The vocals aren’t a problem in the song as they slay. The vocals on the song are amazing. They really help the beat carry the sexual and sensual tones NKOTB is presenting in the song. The falsettos are great. I like how almost everyone gets a change to sing on the song instead of sticking to the “main vocals.” There isn’t just Jordan or Joey carrying the song. It’s more of a team effort.

Overall, the song is an okay song. The only thing from keeping the song from being amazing is the lyrics. If there was more substance, then it would be an amazing song. But from a nostalgia purposes, it’s just great to hear new music from NKOTB. It’s a great starting point for the new EP but there could have probably been a better first single.

Here’s them performing “One More Night.”

New Album on The Block

banner pop

It’s time to adventure back to a time where leg warmers were in and Mark Wahlberg was still with the Funky Bunch and believing that he could rap because New Kids on The Block is back and they have released their newest album. “10” is the newest release from the group and let me tell you; it’s pretty much a trip down from memory lane with the style of music. The album is the group’s seventh studio album in their two-decade span.

Ironically, the album reminds me of the Backstreet Boys’ extremely popular 1999 album “Millennium”.  Basically, it reminds me of 90s pop, which is weird since NKOTB has been around since the 80s. Anyways, this album is great especially if you just want relaxation music because that is what you will get with this album. All the songs, especially their single “Remix (I Like That)”, bring something to offer to this album. Most of the songs are what would be considered ballads, which is rare in this day and age.

What didn’t work? Well, the album is just one big ballad fest. Some of the ballads are upbeat but the only song that’s even brings up the thought of dancing is the single. Granted, this isn’t really a bad thing but it’s not something that you would bring to a hardcore dance  party. It is the thing that you would bring to a nice tea party or even a small party. I’m going to take it as a good thing that this is the only problem with this album

Overall, this album is a step up from their 2008 release, which we won’t even discuss. If you are a boy bander or just a fan of pop music, then this album is pretty much is a buy for you.  This album also sets the boy band album standards high for 98 Degrees, whose album will drop the next month!.

We own tonight
