"Although half of the songs consisted of ballads, it was good pop for its time. Maurice Starr's dinky-sounding keyboards from it have me still humming to them today. The Right Stuff and Hangin Tough were tough sounding songs in their beats and sounds. I'll Be loving You Forever still sounds pretty. And I still like "I Remember When", even though they go on and on for nearly two minutes on the closing chorus. But the song I still like is the rock-driven guitar on "Hold On." To me that was the most challenging on the album. It sometimes recalls '70s rock in some ways and just amazes me every time I hear it. Donnie Wahlberg sounded good on it too. This song separates itself from the mostly teen pop that dominates the album and perhaps their most experimental". ( amazon customer)
