    A.J. McLean sounds fully prepared for the demands of touring this
    year with his bandmates in the Backstreet Boys.

    "I'm in the best shape I've ever been in, so I can actually perform
    it and look good, too," McLean said in a recent phone interview.He
    better be in shape. According to McLean, the current tour -- which
    includes a stop Monday night at Ruth Eckerd Hall -- requires more
    dancing from the Backstreet Boys than the show the group took on the
    road following the 2007 album "Unbreakable.""We've got four extra
    dancers. And production-wise, we're doing like a bunch of different
    gags and stuff," McLean said.
    "It's going to be very theatrical, lots of dancing on our part. It's
    going to be very entertaining. It's going to be really, really
    entertaining and cool with all the old songs mixed in with the new
    ones."The new music comes courtesy of "This Is Us," the CD the
    Backstreet Boys released last October. The album is an attempt to
    recapture the R&B-influenced dance-pop sound of the group's
    early albums, after a bit of a stylistic departure on its 2005 CD,
    "Never Gone" and "Unbreakable," which were more pop-oriented.
    McLean, though, said the musical direction of the group
    wasn't the main reason "Unbreakable," in particular, was less than a
    smash."Honestly, the reason why it didn't do so well is because the
    songs weren't that good," McLean said.
