Laugh if you will, but I really like these guys. One of my tv music channels has been playing a recent conert all weekend - thier greatest hits plus a lot of Motown standards. I think they've got a great sound.

I liked some of the early stuff, my sister had a few CD's.

Have heard nothing other than their Christmas CD in the past ten years.

I watched that concert just for the Motown content...I thought they did a great job on those tunes...

Great, great singers. Unfortunately, their material began to suffer. But, Cooleyhighharmony and II are both great R & B. I remember way back when, I figured as much we'd be hearing Boyz II Men for the rest of our lives. Didn't turn out that way, but you won't ever hear me making fun of someone for liking them. (Same goes for D'Angelo -- incredible voice. "Brown Sugar" was a GREAT album.)

they were good in the 90's, not sure about now, i always though "end of the road" was one of the best soul songs ever

"end of the road" was the first song that I danced with a girl to, and felt totally cool about it infront of my friends. Ok, we were like 12, but that effin song brings back memories.

I like to watch Private Sessions on A&E Sunday mornings while reading my paper and starting the day and these guys were on yesterday. I thought they sounded pretty good and really enjoyed the Motown stuff they did (with dance moves ) ... took me back to my youth

I was a big fan in middle school....then they kind of fell off the map. I listen to their Christmas album multiple times each year though. Such beautiful harmonies.

I was actually waiting to see if they would sing the National Anthem during one of the world series games in Philadelphia since they're from around that area. I bet it would have been great.
