Got it Made is pretty good at first but after a while it gets to be redundant, too many “oh yeahs” and “uh huhs” plus a front woman who had obviously not fallen far from the family tree. That’s ok, because even John Spencer has a hard time geting out from under his own shadow. So what’s up with Gettin Wise? Well, besides the fact that it sounds like the title of a Beastie Boys record that never came out in the 90’s, not much. The music is tight enough but the vocals are still oversaturated in the nasal sounding old style of 20’s era jazz which can be intersting in moderation but can easily become irritating after a short while, especially when combined with hip hop style cockiness for the lenght of an album. Where Did You Get That Funk? Come on, it’s 2003. If you really think you can write a song withthe word “funk” in the title you’re going to have to step it up a notch or two, but really isn’t that a bit tired. Some of the the tracks are still promising, but most of those are because you can almost squint your ears and hear big brother doing them. The best bit of the cd is Swett’s Muse, and it’s only 120 seconds long with no vocals. Gettin Wise was due for an uphill struggle once the novelty of Got it Made wore off, and ultimately it doesn’t cut it. Slick and boring, eventually annoying.
