This time, Backstreet’s really back! The five original members of ’90s boy band the Backstreet Boys have released their first single since confirming that Kevin Richardson has rejoined the group. (Backstreet’s four other members — Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, and A.J. McLean — teamed with another retro boy band, New Kids On the Block, to form the totally awesome supergroup NKOTBSB in 2010.) Backstreet’s working on a full-length album for early next year, but in the meantime the guys have already released a holiday-themed track called “It’s Christmas Time Again,” which they performed at Disneyland on Monday while filming a segment for the park’s annual Christmas Day parade special.

How do you think the tune compares to NKOTB’s famous holiday songs, such as “This One’s for the Children” and that timeless classic, “Funky, Funky, Xmas”?
