The underground delivers once again with a breath of fresh air. Enter US-based 4-God with his first offering, an album that's well rounded with a strong instrumental edge, drawing on a wide spectrum of sounds and vibes. As the man says, "This album is the definition of feel good music," and definitely leaves you wanting second helpings. Standouts include the anthemic dynamism of "Who New" where Jeremiah Tutstone handles the hook skilfully, perfectly complimenting the track. For me the most airplay worthy tracks are the serene "Dreams", so inspirational and uplifting that it needs to get the remix treatment, a life changer of a sound. Hot on its heels is the soul rich vibe of "Lets Be" which deals with the process of finding "the one" and does so with a really fresh approach. In addition to an eloquent and compelling lyrical flow, 4-God speaks transparently into life's big issues. Despite a smattering of cheesy numbers this is a must have album containing too much to mention to fully do it justice.
