What would the world be like if we didn’t have talented and unique musicians such as The Imagination Movers? If you’ve followed the works of The Imagination Movers and have come to appreciate what they do, then you’ll know what I mean when I say they are talented, dedicated, and full of energy and enthusiam. The Imagination Movers have put their whole heart and soul into making their music, live performances, and their show on the Disney Jr. channel and it looks like they don’t plan on stopping. If you’ve had a chance to pick up their newest CD, ‘Rock-o-Matic’, then you’re in for a real treat. This time, their newest CD also includes a music video DVD of some of their songs and my son and I have really come to love their new CD. As Rich Collins from The Imagination Movers point out about their Rock-o-Matic CD, “We’re still a bunch of dorky dads but we’ve gotten really good at writing pop and rock songs over the last decade, so you can hear a little bit of that swagger in these new tracks. It’s probably our most “rock” record to date but it’s quite diverse stylistically”. And that’s exactly how I would describe Rock-O-Matic: a fun-loving, rock-in-your-soul kind of music. The songs are definitely different than their other albums yet symbiotically combine a bit of each of the Movers essence into each song.
I think all of the songs on Rock-O-Matic are pretty good but we definitely have our favorites. My son loves “Rock-O-Matic” and I like both “Rock-O-Matic” and Dance Kung fu. The lyrics are catchy, funny, and easy to sing along to. In fact, whenever we’re listening to the CD in the car, both my son and I are singing along and moving to the music and melody. Here’s a sample of the lyrics to Rock-O-Matic:
Rock-O-Matic – Cut through the static Turn up your radio now Can you feel it? Don’t you really want to hear it? Crank up your stereo loud
Crank up the stereo – Get the good stuff Turn up the radio – You can’t get enough You’ve got to let it go, you’ve got to let it go now
Other titles that are definitely worth cranking up the sound are, “Fast as a Cat” which has a nice rap from Mover Scott, “Buckle Me In” which is about the kids and the parents going on a roadtrip, and “Rain Rain” which is about wishing the sun was out instead of the rain. The vivacious drum beats, the melodic rhythms, and the rappings from Mover Scott really makes this new CD shine. If you’ve had a chance to listen to their previous CDs, you may have noticed an incremental change from their earlier works where the tunes were definitely more for kids than adults and to their later songs where the lyrics and melodies were more mature and established. The Imagination Movers have definitely grown into their art and their music indicates a change for bigger and better stuff in the future. I have friends who tell me that they only listen to The Imagination Movers whenever they are in the car with their kids and they watch their show (also titled, The Imagination Movers) just as avidly as their kids do.
So whether you’re a new fan of The Imagination Movers or hard core fans from the beginning, be sure to pick up a copy of The Imaginaton Movers newest CD, ‘Rock-O-Matic’. You and your kids will definitely enjoy the diversity of this new CD. It’s a mixture of fun, learning, and distinctive tunes that you just can’t stop listening and “rockin'” to.
