AllMusic Review by

The match that lit the fuse on the boy band explosion of the '90s, New Kids on the Block were one of pop music's more inescapable phenomena in the late '80s. Like a time capsule of that period, the Original Album Classics box set transports listeners back in time, collecting the band's first five albums (1986's New Kids on the Block, 1988's Hangin' Tough, 1989's Merry, Merry Christmas, 1990's Step by Step, and 1991's No More Games: The Remix Album) in a five-disc set that's sure to stir up memories of boy band mania. While there aren't any bonus features or fancy packaging, the nostalgia value of a set like this will more than deliver for fans looking to revisit their wayward teen years.
