The New Backstreet Boys Song is Zzzzzz

The Backstreet Boys have released their first single since Kevin Richardson got his shit together and joined back up with the band. It's titled "In A World Like This", the same as their new album. And it is not good.

It's not bad it's just not...anything. A few thrown around descriptions from the Jezebel chat today described it thusly:

"The new sound of silence."

"It's the hollow-sounding desperation of an empty bank account."

"It sounds like giving up."

"It certainly doesn't sound like silk pajamas in a rainstorm, and THAT is a problem."

You know what way I want it? I want a world where this song is not their new single and Backstreet was officially back, everybody. It is the Millenium after all. What kind of world do you want?
