The Backstreet Boys' eponymous debut album was released in America nearly a full year after its original European release, and the wait proved to be a blessing in disguise. In that year, light dance-pop -- such as the Spice Girls and Hanson -- returned to the top of the American charts, paving the way for the frothy pleasures of Backstreet Boys. Like those groups, the Backstreet Boys divide their time between catchy, up-tempo dance numbers and syrupy ballads, and they are as reliant on their personality as they are their talent. As a result, there are a couple of slow spots on the record, but each of the singles, plus a handful of album tracks, are potent combinations of professional hooks and personal charm that make Backstreet Boys a thoroughly enjoyable affair. [The Canadian edition is missing "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss," "If You Want It to Be Good Girl," "As Long as You Love Me," "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)," "Hey Mr. DJ," "All I Have to Give," and "Anywhere for You," replacing them with "Boys Will Be Boys," "Just to Be Close to You," "I Wanna Be with You," "Every Time I Close My Eyes," and "Roll with It."]
