4.0 out of 5 stars Marques Houston Shows The Ladies What He's Made Of! September 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's almost amazing that Batman has made it this long. Yes, I said Batman because that's who I remember him being. You know you remember him as Batman from the group Immature (or later known as IMX). Some younger folks might remember him from Sister Sister too. So what has been his secret for lasting this long and still being able to maintain a relatively successful career? Well in Immature, he and the guys targeted the screaming teenage girls that instinctively gravitated to popular teenage boys. In IMX, they targeted the older teens and those young adults still not old enough to drink. Even his first debut solo album MH was geared to those same girls and maybe those that could finally get in a club. So, it seems he's basically followed the same group of girls throughout his career, and Naked is no different as all those same girlies are now in the 'Grown & Sexy' stage.

It may be a shock to many people who never thought Marques Houston would end up being a serious R&B singer. But with songs like the title track "Naked" and "Sex With You," he doesn't come off as some kid star purporting to be some sex symbol. Marques continues the smooth talking with no problem on the songs "Everything" and "Do You Mind." He has even refined his "club" sound to more agreeable tunes like "I Wasn't Ready" with a surprisingly decent verse from Rufus Blaq, a blast from the past that went virtually unknown in the mid nineties. Another carefree song is the debut single "All Because Of You" featuring Immature/IMX alum Young Rome (better known as Romeo).

There are some minor missteps like "12 O'Clock" featuring the long-forgotten rapper Joe Budden, the "immature" sounding "I Like It" featuring RaRa & Dame, and the weird suggestions given on the song "Marriage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Album March 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I think with this album Marques tries to give us just the right amount of music that we need. Some might think that 11 tracks is a short album but if all the songs are hot then it is ok. It is kind of like Jaheim's new album Ghetto Classics in which it only has 11 tracks but you can play it all the way through. This Marques Houston album is pretty impressive in that it has the right amount of slow songs and dance/club records. It has music for all types of moods so that is why I give it a 5 star rating!

4.0 out of 5 stars I Didn't Think It Would Be This Good May 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I usually don't buy albums from artists that used to be in boy bands (i.e. NSYNC, IMx, etc.), but this CD is good. When I first saw the first video, I knew it would be promising but not this good. After hearing this one, I now wonder what I have been missing. Nice slow ballads are featured on this one. Marques has a nice voice and shouldn't be slept on. This CD is much better than Mario's or Omarion's.

5.0 out of 5 stars WAY better than MH June 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
i was second-guessing myself when i was going to but this because i was really looking forward to his first album "MH" and i was really let down when i found that most of it was filler... this was NOTHING like that..i even read the reviews before i bought this one and i listened to the clips...definatly listen to the clips before you buy because if you dont like those...you wont like the cd...but i LOVED them.. i was also wasnt going to buy it because it only has 11 songs...but i bought AKON'S cd "Trouble" and it had only like 12 songs and it is still one of my favorite cd's to this day...because it has no filler...just like this...when artists put out albums with 17 or 18 songs...MORE than half of them are filler that arent even worth a listen..which is why im glad he cut back on his 11 songs...because there are ABSOLUTELY NOOO filler...there is only one that is not my taste..but it still isnt filler...heres a track by track break down 1 being bad and 10 being the best

1-All because of you-8\10- this one has a GREAT beat by the corna boys but the lyrics just dont really follow and match the beat...his first single off the album is a dud...i hadnt EVER heard of it before i bought this cd.

2-sex wit you- 15/10- this one is NOT for the kids but it is one of those uptempo slow songs that flow REALLY REALLY well..this is definately my favorite off this album. The beat on this matches the lyrics this time.

3-marraige-7/10- this is not really my type of song...he sings well...but the chorus is REALLY kinda lame..and that kinda kills the song for me...the verses are good though.

4- 12 O'Clock-10/10-I love this song..its a great uptempo beat and just overall really good..he REALLY REALLY sounds like AKON in this song..they sound exactly the same..

5.0 out of 5 stars (...) Review of MH's Naked May 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Solo artist Marques Houston has done what others said was impossible, he has created a quality, mature, and intriguing album. Despite his constant battle with breaking out of the kiddy pop circle, "Naked" slated to be released May 24th has stimulated quit a buzz within the R and B/ Hip Hop circuit.
The 23 year old from California surpasses his previous endeavors with group Imx by growing vocally and lyrically. The album "Naked" is truly a confessional journey of a boy becoming a man within a relationship. With the first single off the album "All Because of You" maintaining a position within Billboards top 30 for weeks now, the lets make it right anthem has undeniable street credibility. The second single has already made a rave impression on fans and skeptics at [...] where the video for "Naked" shows the star actually naked in a flash back D'Angelo `how does it feel kind of way.'
The new single and video happen to be hot and definitely sexy so much so that B.E.T banned the video! Mr. Houston has finally laid a foundation for his audience to know that he is grown and sexual. Such songs as "Sex With You," "Do You Mind", and "I Like It" will help set the mood with your partner but beware because these songs are quality baby making material. "Marriage and "Cheat" actually show the male point of view on problematic relationships with a catchy ass beat as a heated bonus. All of those that thought "Naked" was titled that just for publicity reasons are completely wrong. Mr. Houston strips down to bear his honest sexual soul and reveals his inner problems and feelings about relationships. His vocal ability on this album is phenomenal except for the beginning of the second single Naked. Yet the album is worthy of the repeat button. I give "Naked" 3 ˝ out of 4. This is definitely something you need to pick up as soon as possible!

Literally Yours, (Like Literature...think Deep)
