"Stay the Same" is easily better than what the Backstreet Boys or 'N Sync's are producing.

With this debut solo collection of love ballads and Stevie Wonder-influenced dance tunes, Joey just may give the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and the rest of this year's New Kids a run for the teenybopper bucks.

McIntyre faces jiggy-rock with the histrionics of a really good dinner-theater actor.

Of course, it's all contrived, derivative, and formulaic, but that doesn't matter.

Joey Guerra

What's missing is a true sense of McIntyre as his own artist.

In these days of even "tougher" younger dudes (think Hansons), Joey may just ended up mugged along the way.

R. S. Murthi

While it's pop with a guessable direction, the music's listenable, though only hardcore fans would cherish the album.

Someday, away from handlers and overwrought make-up arists, McIntyre could blossom into a forthright blue-eyed soul singer and songwriter.

If it wasn't for his past, programmers would find much of this material impossible to resist, but ultimately it is not as exciting as fellow ex-NKOTB member Jordan Knight's forthcoming work.
