So far, it looks like most of their tour is based in Boston (lucky Katie!) and it makes me proud to see they're not wussing out and kicking it like "NKOTB" (which I always resented as a moniker because it required me to have to think too hard to get the initials correct). I loved the New Kids when they WERE new...apparently they got much edgier and cooler by the time the NKOTB phase of "Hangin' Tough." I didn't like them rough, those New Kids. I liked the soft, sad pleadings of "Please Don't Go Girl," so reminiscent of the Four Tops or other MoTown crooners, or the pure pop-joy of, "I Wanna Be Loved By You," and the playfulness of their first album's singsong-y introductions.
Will the world ever tire of poorly choreographed manboys with harmonizing falsettos in matching outfits? Lord. I sure hope not.
