All Sides is the first album by multi-cultural pop music boy-band LMNT. The name was chosen both to reflect the group's veried musical taste, the concept that they weren't just "another boy band". However, the latter message wasn't taken too seriously. This was the first and only album the group ever released.

Reception[edit]

All Sides gained some modest success, as the single, "Juliet" managed to reach number one on Radio Disney, where it remained for eight consecutive weeks[3]. However, it ultimately failed to gain the group as much popularity as acts like 'N Sync or the Backstreet Boys.

The album received generally negative reviews. AllMusic.com reviewer Michael Gallucci stated: "Their debut album is filled with post-millennium teen pop and all of its trappings", critiziting the use of "forced slang, suburban hip-hop touches, and a canned, manufactured sound that's both insincere and fake"[1] . Entertainment Weekly reviewer Kristen Baldwin wasn't impressed, either: "[LMNT] is unlikely to revive the [Boy Band] genre"[2] . Both reviewers also stated that they were little more than rejects from the ABC/MTV reality show, "Making the Band", and as such, there wasn't much to be expected from their sound.
