The album fires up as it means to go on, with a bouncy crunk track as Canton Jones lays down his credentials, ending with the cry that he's representing Christ. The album nicely flows from one track to another and we move through many themes, all very Christ-centric with deep sub bass kicks, R&B laced music, beautiful vocal harmonies and synth riffs, live instrumentation to inspire your heart and mind. "General" speaks of the artist's desire to be a General, a demon-killer. We have a swathe of excellent, almost crunk'n'b with "Warrior" (with a double timed verse at the end of the track), "The Password: Jesus" (featuring rapper Mr Del). As befits a very R&B album, we have the outstanding and soulfully sung "Stay Saved", a track getting a lot of props across the scene; "Love Song" has Canton displaying his vocal range over a smooth track talking of God's love for his creation; "Okay" and "Teach Me Your Ways" (about learning God's ways). Bringing a distinctive half-tempo beat is "Wishaway", wanting to wish certain things in life away. We end with a stunning live performance of "The Password". An outstanding album.
