they're ba-aaack...
Sunday, April 20, 2008
Now I wasn't always the alternative-rock lover that I am today.

Back in my youth (I'm old now. I'm 29. Yi.), my musical taste would range from bubblegum pop boybands like NKOTB & Boyzone to R&B/Soul like Mariah Carey BelBivDevoe and BoyzIIMen. And I used to think that rock & roll was the devil's music... Great! I was "Kenneth" from 30 Rock! Lame!!!

Thank God I've matured and progressed to better music. :)

But lately, these guys have been all over the news and when I saw their latest PEOPLE interview on youtube the other day, I was immediately transported all the way back to my childhood...

The father of all boybands are back (Beatles would be the grandfather)!

NKOTB has finally reunited after more than a decade!

It's about damn time! Us fans (Don't care if you think I'm lame! I was and always will be an NKOTB fanatic and I'm darn proud of it!) have been waiting for this for a loooong time.

I remember their concert here in Manila back in 1992 I was in the 7th grade I think. Saved up all my Christmas money just to see them. It was the first ever concert that I saw and it was totally worth it. Then 2 years later they broke up.

But it's all good! My favorite "Kid," Jordan Knight came out with a solo album and came back to Manila in 1999 to do a concert with 98 degrees so at least I got to see him again. :) Hehehe. Told you I was a fan!

Here's hoping that the newly reunited, old (but hotter-looking) kids on the block decide to come back to Manila one more time to grace us with their presence.

They're coming up with a new album, which I think will be released this summer. Try looking for their new single "Click, click, click". It's actually not bad. I also read somewhere that one of the songs in their album would contain a track written by another former boy-bander, Take That's Gary Barlow. I'm kinda looking forward to that too since I liked Take That for a while.

Here's a suggestion though, if they want instant stardom AGAIN, they should look into working with magicman, Timbaland. I'm sure that any track they'd do with him would be awesome!
