A.J. McLean: We all claim to know everything about each other, but there's still so much left unsaid, so much left unlearned; so, while we were in London making the record, we talked about doing these little hometown trips to really kind of go back to our grass roots to kind of see where everybody really came from.
Kevin Scott Richardson: See the places, experience it together, and-and get that bond tight again.

Coming from a non-fan: A very good documentary
24 March 2015 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

I never was big on the Backstreet Boys, primarily because they were a boyband and I'm a guy and they of course have mainly a female audience.

That said it's undeniable that they had had some joints throughout the years.

Anyhow, I thought I would give it a go still cause I read a lot of good things about it, and I did enjoy SOME KIND OF MONSTER about Metallica being a non-Metallica fan I thought, why not.

And just like SOME KIND OF MONSTER this movie is a very honest look at these Backstreet Boys turned men and there is one fight between Nick and Brian that I was a little shocked that they'd actually put in it, a lot of stars would probably be afraid to put that level of honesty into a documentary but I'm really happy they did.

Everyone is really open about their flaws and old traumas are brought back to life and it's just a captivating watch from beginning to end, I don't think there was anyone of the Backstreet Boys who at some point didn't break down in tears.

It's not all just sappy stories of course, but yeah I applaud them for opening up so much.

Fans will love it I'm sure and non-fans if you're even slightly interested in the music business and the effects stardom can have on you you should enjoy it.

I found a little more respect for Backstreet Boys after watching this, Peace.
