Rolando Remedios, aka 3D Remedy, was born in Brooklyn and now lives in Staten Island. He has a wide-ranging ministry, as a pastor working with youth. The title track kicks things into motion with a powerful musical score as 3D brings some smooth and spot-on vocals with soulful hooks lifting the song even further. Standout moments include the excellent "Rejoice Always" with a dance beat as 3D Remedy gives praise to God with a soulful hook and uplifting vibe. Also featuring is the epic soundscape that 3D flows over in "Let Them Go" as he asks, "Lord set my people free, let them go" in a Moses-style modern-day pleading for God's deliverance. There are some times where the project almost veers into synth-style LZ7 moments like on the English/Spanish combo "Supernatural". Elsewhere, the album rides on a West Coast tip on "In My Hood" and "Way Out". Other tracks have a party vibe like "Shut It Down" as we're encouraged to shut sin down in our lives. 3D calls out the soulful motivation of much of the music industry on "Tired Of This Music" while the beautiful slow jam "Here Is My Heart" is a good closer.
