Immature - We Got It

Monday is back. And in case you still weren't aware, this blog is headquartered in the great state of Wisconsin. So kind of a big deal yesterday, the Packers made it to the Super Bowl! Pretty awesome if you're a sports fan. So today the office has been a little nuts in terms of people chatting all day about the Pack. Sorry for blogging a little late this morning, but I wore my Packers polo which draws people to give me high fives and then talk about America's Team. Anyways, going on to music - janis! requested that I review an old school pop/R&B record. Who doesn't remember Immature? I found out today these gents changed their name, formerly going by the name IMx. Not sure why...maybe because they've matured? No way to tell for certain. This came out in 1995 which again was a big time for alt rock. But that didn't mean these guys got swept under the rug. They were pretty big for an R&B group. Listening to this a couple times today now, I don't really recall any of the songs, but I understand why it would sell well with the pop crowd. Got a pretty laid back, easy going feel to it. And although these guys were around 13-14 when this album dropped, it's got a more adult contemporary feel to it. I mean, it's not Kris Kross singing 'Jump' or something to that effect. They broke up in 2001 or so, and aren't making tunes anymore. It says they have a TBA due out this year, but I can't find anything about it. Which makes me think that's not going to happen. There is a greatest hits album out there too, which is surprising. I thought you had to have at least one hit to make a greatest hits. Ah well. Check it out today. Kick it old school for an hour.

    Man, that takes me WAY back.

  3. to JenInTosa...

    heck yea, that's Marcus Houston. He done growed up :)

  4. Well, not in that photo. It was still '95 or whatever. I'm sure today, he's a grown ass man.


  5. pretty sure his brother was in BBMac. BBMAK. whatever.

    i love the video for 'we got it.' probably the only song off the album i really keep in any kind of regular rotation now. 'feel the funk' was on the dangerous minds soundtrack. with 'gangster's paradise.' you might remember that one.

  6. Not sure I ever saw the video.

    Wait, Gangsta's Paradise? What's that?
