Christgau's Consumer Guide(choice cut)[2]

There were a few differences between the versions of songs released on this album and the American album. The album also contained the same enhanced section as the American release. The first track recorded for the album was a cover of "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss", which was recorded alongside a new song, "If You Stay", which did not make the final track listing of the album. "Who Do You Love" was performed live but never released as a studio track. The three singles released from this album became three of their most successful and remembered singles.

Commercial performanceEdit

Backstreet's Back debuted at #1 in Canada, selling 67,000 copies in its first week.[3] By 2007, the album had sold over 1,048,000 copies in Canada.[4]
