3.2: Backstreet Boys – Backstreet Boys (1997)

Some music in our lives gets us at a young age. It bonds itself to our DNA for the rest of our lives, connecting us with memories of unfiltered teenaged joy, posters plastered onto bedroom walls, and the reckless abandon of dance moves and hairbrush microphones in front of the mirror. Our first pop album is all about the heart and about the enthusiasm that came so naturally to us when we were kids. Immortal boyband Backstreet Boys and their 1998 self-titled debut was an impactful force along these lines for our Shannon Dohar. But what does the rest of the Deeper cuts trio think about this unabashed late 90s pop classic? What does it have to teach us about the nature of pop music and its irresistible call to the dance floor? Get it goin’ on right now and have a listen to find out!
