New Kids on the Block, The Block
Official Release Date: September 2
The Verdict: Since we're already on record as appreciating the not-badness of first single "Summertime," we might as well go ahead and let you know that the New Kids' just-leaked reunion album isn't the worst thing in the world either. Featuring beats from Timbaland and Timbaland-ish producers, The Block won't make these guys big again, but it's a pleasant listen on an entertainment-deficient Wednesday in August, particularly pretty ballads like "2 in the Morning," "Stare at You," and the Ne-Yo-assisted "Single." There is, however, a song called "Sexify My Love."
