All the Time in the World

The latest edition of prefab pop pinups will need the luck of the Irish to take the Backstreet Boys’ throne with this bland ballad. Working a narcoleptic synth-pop pulse, heart-in-hand romanticism, and repeated choruses ad infinitum, it’s like Savage Garden lite — and Savage Garden can’t get any more lite. Don’t be surprised if you zone out before ”All the Time in the World” ends. Still, despite the teen-idle blarney, the lads’ groovy Dublin accents give them a little Riverdance flair. C+
