I love me some NKOTB but this new album sounds too adult contemporary for me. I was hoping for something more upbeat.

Did you guys hear that Jonathan Knight had a panic attack and ran off stage during a performance today? Poor thing but he really needs a new profession if he has performance anxiety.

What happened last night was sensationalized--they group is already over it and on to their next show in California this weekend. Jon has said that the first show of a tour he's really nervous and then he warms up. The other guys know his limitations and back him up. All the fans know his story and are completely understanding of what happened.

I'm a big fan of their and find Jon to be maybe the most grateful member of the group. He and Donnie Wahlberg are the most interactive with fans and he shows a lot of love for what he does. Respect to him.

Lord knows I stan hardcore for these guys but I do not like their album. I'm not a fan of their new sound and i'm aware they are older now but this album is just meh to me. I do like Fighting Gravity, Miss You More, Jealous (Blue) and the song after Survive you is a Jam ....I wish it was a separate Track.

Jonathan Knight was not quite ready to face the music at iHeartRadio's New Kids on the Block concert in New York City earlier this week. Halfway through the April 4 show, the singer -- who has admitted in the past to suffering social anxiety -- walked off stage alone, leaving his bandmates to continue without him. Afterward, he took to his Twitter account to apologize for the sudden departure, writing simply, "I'm sorry..."

Footage of the incident shows that Knight, 44, was visibly uncomfortable from the very beginning of the hourlong set. While his fellow New Kids -- Jordan Knight, 42, Joey McIntyre, 40, Donnie Wahlberg, 43, and Danny Wood, 43 -- bounced around the stage energetically and engaged with the audience, Knight hung back by himself. At one point, he appeared to be looking at his cellphone in the middle of a song. Then, a little more than 25 minutes into the concert, the group introduced a ballad, "Survive You," from their new album, 10. Knight was supposed to do a solo, but when it came time for him to sing, he couldn't get the words out.

"Jon, these people paid thousands of dollars for these tickets. For one reason. They heard that you're singing on this record," Wahlberg joked, putting a supportive arm around his bandmate.

Knight laughed uncomfortably, then walked offstage shaking his head as the remaining four continued the song. The band told their fans (known as Blockheads, or BHs) that he would return -- but he didn't, despite repeated chants from the crowd. (Toward the end of the evening, McIntyre quipped that he was locked in the bathroom.)

Fans were understandably concerned. Twelve years ago, in an emotional interview with Oprah Winfrey, Knight confessed that debilitating panic attacks led him to become something of a recluse in the 1990s. "The whole New Kids thing was crazy. The more it grew, the more I just felt like I was trapped. I just always had this feeling inside me of always being nervous and afraid of situations," he explained.

"From 1994 to 1997, I did nothing," he told Winfrey of how he coped. "I slept and slept and slept. If I was awake, I had to deal with things, I had to do things. In order to avoid that, I would just stay in bed. You go through the whole thing, too, like 'I'm weird or I'm strange,' and it just makes your whole self shrink down even more."

In any case, Knight appeared to be feeling better on Friday, April 5, when he performed "We Own Tonight" with the group on the Today show. Afterward, the band went online to reassure concertgoers that he was okay. "Not 2 worry BHs, all is well w Jon!" a tweet on the NKOTB account read. "It was a crazy album release week & we are all on a plane to Napa & look fwd to a grt show this weekend!"

I was shopping and saw the new CD 10 and was like.. "I wonder if Jonathan is still with the group?" because I thought he would be pressured to do the reunion, and then really be like "no forreals guys I cannot do another show" after that. Not like there isn't enough voices to go around. I think he would be outta there if his brother Jordan ever left. Why do I care? He was my favorite New Kid when I was 9. lol

Yeah he was fine, some people honestly were saying they did this as a stunt for sales, IM like come on now, really, i mean its known history that Jon has had this issue most of his life, he struggles constantly. BUT i gotta give props to him and the rest of his group for pulling together around him, helping him, some people said it was "rude" of Donnie to joke about people spending all their money on the tickets, it was a fucking joke he was trying to get him laughing, i mean people need to grow up, no one spent their college fund on tickets just to hear him do 3 lines of that song. But props to NKOTB for being his back, and not doing something like kicking him out or going on without him which is what some have said they should do, some have said they should go on without him, or its wrong to put him out there for $$, lets get real, these guys are paid, they got their money and didnt blow it like other boy groups and teens did, they were actually educated.
