Synopsis

Amazon.com
Can we embrace yet another boy band? Bring 'em on! Here come Kian, Mark, Bryan, Shane, and Nicky--five knock-out Irish lads who were selling millions of CDs in Europe while the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync competed for teenaged hearts in the U.S. Thank goodness for Westlife that pubescent crushes are as transferable as a comic strip to Silly Putty; the group is geared to storm the States head-on and threatening to overtake a few well-entrenched heartthrobs. Citing the Backstreet Boys as an early influence (when 3 years is more than 10 percent of your whole life, it scales ), the vocal-harmony quintet's sound is exactly like you'd expect. The album contains no Backstreet-bombast dance singles--these guys opt for Boyz II Men balladeering. Their perfectly melded voices wail, soar, and sooth with impressive emotional impact capable of igniting countless gymnasium-turned-dance-hall romances. Those who remember will wince at the implications of Westlife's verbatim cover of Extreme's "More Than Words." --Beth Massa

"I just discovered this group while looking for love song lyrics to send to my boyfriend. I found "I Wanna Grow Old With You" and that fit my situation perfectly as I have just reconnected with my very first love (43 yrs ago). I ended up buying all of their CDs. I would say at least 80% of their songs have some personal meaning to me relating to my reconnection with my first love. Westlife as a great sound and I am hoping they will do a US tour soon.
