CD Reviews

He finally did it........and it's good

"After at least 6 years of saying he's going to release a solo he's finally done it and guess what it's pretty good. He's written most of the songs if not all and even wrote some with JC Chasez, he's even produced it himself..good for you AJ.

Theres not one song on the cd that I don't like but my favorites are Sincerly and London both beautifully written and arranged.

Worth buying you all."
Nothing short of amazing

"AJ has one of the most unique voices in music and I LOVE this album! I didn't know what to expect, but it has a good mix of up-tempo tracks and ballads. "London" and "Gorgeous" are my favorites, but "What If" and "I Quit" are also great songs. If you like his voice as much as I do, you won't be disappointed!"
From being in BSB, to holding his own

"Well, I must admit I am a huge Backstreet Boys fan I love all their music it's all pretty much amazing. They have gone through so many stages of music: euro-dance, hip hop, rnb, rock but all have brilliant.
Yes they have had elements where the bad plays a major role in the songs eg guitar solos, guitar leads and stuff ("Larger Than life") and Never Gone as a whole album had rock influence. But the euro-dance element is their roots and theres always been electronic sound in there.

AJ Mclean's new album drops this electronic sound and goes for real instruments and it sounds amazing. When listening I was constantly enthhralled by the beautiful instrumental element particular the use of brass (trumphets etc). However, tt doesn't feel like a modern day 2010 album, I actually felt like I was going back to the big band ish type era like in regards to the instruments. I love it and I really don't like modern pop so this was soo refreshing and I love it sooo much!!!

Now in regards to lyrics and songs. AJ has always been known as the wild, rebel, raw member of the Backstreet Boys (especially in comparison to the other boys). I really find that this album shows Alexander James Mclean for who he really is. It's a great journey looking into his personal story. It's similar to Nick Carter in his solo album "Now Or Never", it was extremely rock influenced because that's his true passion.

Let me add, I am not biast in this review because AJ is a Backstreet Boy by the way. I do not like Nick or Brian's solo albums and I think I only got 1 song from Nick's. But AJ's actually has really good songs so yea just to clarify that.

Looking at particular songs, "Love Crazy" is a bit raunchy but I love how he's just so open in the lyrics and it's got a really nice melody and stuff. "Mr. A" has a powerful intro and the chorus terms into a real rock song. "What If" and "What I do" are about topics that almost anyone can relate to and I love them as well.
