  • Clarissa from Manila, CtGuys...this song is great and you can't just ignore this single from the album. Backstreet's back and they're goin to hit the road!!!!!
  • Danae from Bowie, Mdthis is a really good song, but in the beginning it doesn't remind me of "Right Here Waiting" it reminds me of "All or Nothing" from O-Town. my favorite song from them recently changed to "How did I fall in love with you". The boys are ok 'NSYNC is still my favorite boy band =D
  • Jackie from Lavista, NeThis is my all time favorite song from the backstreet boys becuz kevin sings alot more than he has in any other song so far!!
  • Paul from London, EnglandSome will prabably disagree with me here but Drowning is one of the best songs the Backstreet Boys have done. If you listen to the melody of this and compare it with their earlier popular stuff it definetely shows they're not one-trick-ponies.
  • Kate from Uk, Englandbackstreets back baby!
  • Dani from Winnipeg, Canadahey adrian, the backstreet boys made headway in the music business, they started a whole new era of music. they're the best.
  • Adrian from Merthyr Tydfil, Alwish they would drown
