Real and Honest Look at the Music Industry
12 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fan of 90s pop music or not, if you are a fan of music in general, this documentary is a must-watch. Behind the fancy dance moves and carefully crafted images we are given in the media, there are real people behind them. People that came from different backgrounds, personal experiences, tragedies, and successes.

For the Backstreet Boys, the road to fame was pre-Internet, hard work for years on the road. The documentary shows just how much blood, sweat, and tears went into building up a fan base and how much harder it was without Facebook and Twitter! They eventually experience grand success (over 130 million albums sold), but a glitch comes when they find out their financial backer was really a con-man, and they were betrayed personally and professionally.

The movie also takes viewers on a road trip with the guys where they show their childhood homes and talk about what led them to join the group...and how the group has affected them these past 22 years. It also shows the guys planning their first album without a major record label behind them. It fascinating to watch songs being created from scratch and how you write lyrics and find harmonies.

The movie really takes viewers through very intimate moments. There are screaming matches, tears, physical ailments, struggles with substance abuse...nothing is off-limits. Even long-time fans will learn things about their favorite band they've never known.

I cannot recommend this movie enough, for both fans of the band or just fans of music in general. There is a dark-side to fame, but if you can keep your head on straight and focus on the right things, you can find long lasting success. The Backstreet Boys are a rare breed in the music industry, lasting 22 years to date! Not many bands in any genre can say that.
