Sean Slaughter is on his fifth project and has produced an album that musically and lyrically has a sense of completion about it. There's also a fearlessness, evidenced from the passion and the fire of the banging "Blast Off" right through to the end of the CD. Sean spits that "The beat is the capital, the hook is the President and the flow is the mayor." In this lead track, we're looking for "A land where sin is not winning and good trumps evil like Spidey over venom." This same vocal energy vocally is evident Biblically - as Scripture and spiritual zeal pervades the project ("Get At U" and the brilliant head-nodding "Log In' with God on call through prayer 24/7). In "Who We Are", we find that "the Spirit is my artist, the Bible's the instrumental." Standouts include the radio-friendly and crunk'n'b styled "Go!" which encourages us, like Sean to get off our backsides and go! (See "Survivor" with Canton Jones too). There's a loud cry for the merits and reach of Christian artists in "Got Em Again" - "If you've slept on Christian rap, then this is your alarm clock." The worldliness of rap and its bad influence is confronted in "Handz India Air" with Sean Slaughter infiltrating the industry for God in "I'm Gone". In "Lemme Go", there's a grooving vibe. The powerful down-tempo, "Itsa Reynolds" sees Sean express the struggles of the Christian life and his desire to make more of a difference. Outstanding.
