OH, TO BE 12 AGAIN

"This album is.......a classic. I was 12 years old when it first came out (does that date me???? I'm old) and I listened to it INCEssently. In fact, this was my first exposure to R&B and I consider a fine first album to start with. The songs on here are great (kinda corny now that I listen to them again, some 22 years later) but the music is wonderful and the voices of these wonderful artists are so young full of life. They're not always perfect, and quite a few times on this album, someones voice crakcs, but thats what make this album so great.This is waaaaay before Bobby brown started smoking crack. Look at the album cover and you cant help but smile at how innocent and young these kids looked. And look at the cockeyed grim on Bobby Browns face. My favorite song on here, hands down, is Mr telephone man. The beat is fantastic and the story is so cute. It details the trials and tribulations of "love" when you were young. Oh, it was all so simple then. This whole album is about falling in love for the first time and having your heartbroken by the girl/boy that you were certain (CERTAIN) at the young age of 12 was the one for you. In fact, I listened to this album soooo much that we took a family trip to Arizona and I lay in the backseat of the car and listened to this tape (TAPE!!!!) on my walkman over and over and over, never once looking up to see the desert that my parents had taken us to see for the first time. To this day, my mom still brings that up....."I cant believe we went driving all the way out in the desert in Arizona to give you a new experience to tell your friends about, and you spent the whole time flat on your face in the backseat listening to a tape!!!!" The good ole days. This album is a must have for any r&B fan. Its sweet, its innocent and its........GREAT!!!!!"

"Oh how does it take me back. Its funny how music was so different back then. Although some may say its corny but the truth is the emotions in those songs are timeless. I found myself listening to Old New Edition songs from this album during my most recent heart break. Not knowing when I put them on how profoundly I would be affected 20 years later. How nostalgic to go back to a time when love was so simple and pure. Its the truest form of art. I thought to myself as I cried listening to whispers in bed (not on this album) How much music has changed. No artist today can imitate the sound emotion or passion that was put into the music of the young men known as New Edition. Because its so true and pure it makes you get to the heart of love life and the pursuit of music. Its funny how although the music is outdated the message is will never go out of style. Artists today are trying to create the type of longevity in music like New Edition created (among others). I would say for any true fan of music...THIS IS A MUST HAVE. Happy listening"
