I thought it was really great. I don't know how they still manage to dance like that after all these years. That We've Got it Goin On dance.... I do wish they'd stop adding the town they're in, in every song. I always thought that was so cheesy lol

Boo! Sad

Thoughts on AJ's new song?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnGfEq7Kudk&list=PL5ypHCGTfywCTDhRTLAL2W_yajIDFI3eH

I'm glad it's more poppy country than twangy country.  I would have laughed if AJ had gotten all twangy.  The song is okay to me, not great, but not bad either.  I wonder if AJ wrote it himself or if someone wrote it for him.  I like the concept of the lyrics, but it feels kind of odd coming from him, a recovering alcoholic.  I dunno... overall I'm not impressed with the song, but I am proud of him for actually releasing something after all his talk!

Yeah...not a fan, but good for him. It all seems weird and out of place. Honestly I think he picked country probably hoping he could ride the FGL thing, but I don't know if it's going to work for him. He's got an R&B voice.

I'm proud of AJ but yeah I'm not a fan of the song. The lyrics just feel wrong knowing he's a recovering alcoholic so it feels like he can't be sincere singing the song, you know? And I agree with Mare, he has an R&B voice yet he never uses it that way solo wise lol.

I find AJ's new song incredibly disappointing after Have It All, which I really loved. The lyrics don't seem genuine at all, whereas a lot of the lyrics on HIA did.

I agree; Have It All is a great album and seems a lot more "him."  But you can't judge a whole album on one song, so we'll see.  He really does have more of an R&B voice than a country voice.  The whole country thing seems so random, and I'm sure it is inspired by FGL and the success they've had as a group with that.  I mean, whoever thought the Backstreet Boys would win a CMT award? LOL  But more power to them!

I admit I've never even listened to AJ's solo album. I think he's got a great voice, but I've never enjoyed his songwriting or him enough to just listen to him alone. I've actually never listened to ANY of their solo projects with the exception of Nick, which tells me if they ever broke up, that would probably be it for me lol hear that boys? No breaking up! Well Brian if you what to leave.... Lmao Just joking.

AJ's first solo album is good!  There are some skip songs, but also some really great tracks, and there's a good variety of different types of songs on there.  I've enjoyed all of their solo albums, although Nick's last few are my favorites.  I wish Kevin would do one.  That said, BSB's sound as a group trumps any of them individually.

Agree with this on all counts.

God I'd love Kevin to do a solo album but he's such a perfectionist I don't think we'll ever see it.

I heard the song on Top 40 radio today in an ice cream shop!  I rarely listen to Top 40.  not listening  But really, it took a while for me to like the song.  The chorus is catchy as heck....and I never realized Brian's voice could go so high!

Wow! Welcome back Pammy!

On a side note, is anyone else getting a kick out of how hard AJ is trying to fit into the country community? He's basically trolling all these country stars and commenting on everything they say lol I don't know why that cracks me up.

I know....a blast from the past!  Thanks, Mare.  As for AJ....I think he's enjoying the Boys' reception from the country music community.
