In the early 90s, faced with changing musical tastes, overexposure, an intense critical backlash, and its own fans growing out of bubblegum pop, New Kids on the Block decided it needed to change. Most importantly, it was time for a new sound. On paper, it could have worked and the band could have established itself as a credible New Jack swing group. They were already great dancers and could sing in harmony. Most importantly, they actually delivered a good album. And speaking of great production, no less of a New Jack swing authority than Teddy Riley drops in to lend his distinctive talents to three songs on the album. The other two Riley-helmed songs are similarly catchy and well-executed. The album does get a little repetitive, and at nearly 65 minutes, it runs about two songs too long.

Jordan Knight, Wahlberg, and Wood fought for creative input and control, as most of their material was previously rejected by producer Maurice Starr in favor of his own compositions. Having been dogged with an "uncool" stigma that they faced previously, the boys decided to sever their ties with Starr who had been instrumental in their early success. Although not a major commercial success, the critical reception was positive, and a cross-country tour was in the works. However, NKOTB only could find bookings at nightclubs and theatres, a far cry from the arenas and stadiums they had been accustomed to playing in while in their peak years. During the tour, Jonathan Knight dropped out of the band due to increased panic attacks and anxiety, and the fact that their fanbase had grown up moved on to grunge and gangsta rap ,  the rest of the group decided to cancel the rest of the tour.
