The Phoenix vies for "Blockhead" status

Bridgetburns_2

The other day Dan came across a great link, and knowing my NKOTB-Reunion obsession, passed it along. Basically, David Thorpe of The Boston Phoenix promised that if enough readers dared him to do so, he would buy and review the newest addition to the New Kids on the Block catalog. The readers fulfilled their end of the bargain, and so Thorpe was forced to fulfill his.

The best part is that Thorpe not only promised to review it, he promised to "write an enthusiastic review worthy of a PR clipping." The resulting copy features tongue-in-cheek lines like, "each and every member of the band is every bit as distinct and memorable as the guy who preceded him, and the guy who follows."

Priceless.

You can read Thorpe's full "review" here.
