  • The group resisted the release of this album as they felt it was too early in their career for such an album. It would also ruin their plans to mark their 10th aniversary with a greatest hits release in 2003. "Our management company was supportive and we weren't. And the record company was going to put it out anyway. So it's either promote, or fight with your label, don't promote it and risk it doing very badly. But ultimately, who is it that's going to get hurt? It's not going to hurt our label. It's going to hurt us," Backstreet Boys member Kevin Richardson said.
