Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Bubblegum-soul has been a staple of the R&B charts from the Jackson 5 through New Edition to the New Kids on the Block. Dominating the genre this year is Immature, the L.A. trio that scored a top-10 single with "Never Lie." Immature may well be one of the few bubblegum-soul groups to outlast adolescence because it has two important assets: a marvelous ballad singer in 13-year-old Marques Houston and a hook-savvy songwriter-producer in Chris Stokes. Deftly balancing sweet soul harmonies and hip-hop beats, the Immature album Playtime Is Over has pleasures beyond its hit single and rewards for listeners of all ages. Houston and his two bandmates, Jerome Jones and new addition Kelton Kessee, were only 12 when they recorded the album but they sound markedly more accomplished and sophisticated than they did on the group's '93 debut flop. The puppy-love innocence of songs like "Walk You Home" and "Summertime" is refreshing in the current R&B scene, but anyone who has ever had a romantic impulse will identify with the giddy infatuation of "I Don't Mind" and the new single, "Constantly." A few raps are sprinkled through the album, but the emphasis is clearly on romantic balladry, and the combination of Stokes's catchy melodies, the silky three-part harmonies, and Houston's relaxed, seductive leads proves irresistible. --Geoffrey Himes

This cd brings back so many memories of me in the 6th grade listening to artists such as Brandy, Usher, 702, Subway, Monteco, Quindon, J-Son, Ray-J, and Soul for Real. I was so in LOVE with Immature (Romeo in particular). I can just remember listening to this cd every night. I had it on repeat while I slept. I can remember watching and taping every video and every episode when they were on Video Soul, Teen Summit, or All That. I love this cd and I think it is there absolute best. I am in my 2nd year of college and like most people I grew up and Immature begin to fade into my memories, so I am not a huge fan of IMX but I still bump this cd at times especially the following "Constantly, Look into your Eyes, Walk you Home, I don't Mind and my new favorite track off the album that I rarely paid any attention to until I got into one of my old school moments recently and that is "Sweetest Love".

I absolutely love Immature's "Playtyme Is Over" album. I listened to it a lot back in the day and I still listen to it. It's definitely one of the best albums of all time. It's mature, grown-up and sexy....a sound that many people would assume is inappropriate for 13-year-olds, but they pulled off the sound very well. To this day, I'm still a fan and this album is still one of my favorites. I will always hold a special place in my heart for Immature...and an extra special place for Batman. :)

As soon as I heard "Never Lie" I was hooked. This song as well as the others are great. They sing such sophisticated songs despite their age. Great work boys !

I bought this CD when I was 13 years old...6 years later it remains my all-time favorite. It's smooth, funky and overflowing with flavor. And Marques Houston has the most amazing voice that never fails to leave me weak in the knees.

I'm a 20-year-old who bought this CD when it first came out, and I'm still into Immature (now IMX) after all these years. I'm amazed at all the talent these guys had when they were 12 years old. There are lots of slow ballads that showcase Marquise Houston's voice, especially "Constantly" and "Never Lie," but I like every song on the CD. IMX's style is more hip hop now, but you have to love this CD for the slow songs, even though there are a couple of good hip hop songs too. The slow songs display plenty of passion and talent. I definitely recommend this CD if you like Immature/IMX, but if you're a new or casual fan, I recommend starting out with one of their more recent CD's.

I loved this album back then and I still love it now. For them being so young, it's a shock to me how well this album really was! I can listen to it non-stop all the way through and I love almost every song! Great job on their part - a must have album for all old school r&b lovers.
