This mixes up hip-hop with a splash of reggae and some R&B dance grooves to create an album that effectively communicates faith with real life testimonies and observations. Blackwolff aka Neil Fox has managed to combine songs that say something with grooves that are sunny and with the variety of remixes on the project covering all musical bases. "I Need To Find A Piece Of Mind" maps out a scenario of escaping jail and finding God. "Now I Lay Down To Sleep" is about living in peace even when family situations are far from easy. Blackwolff isn't afraid to tackle difficult subjects with tough language and a message of hope. Highlights include the Latin vibe of "Are You Still Down For Me" and the three versions of "I Was Living Dangerous" which include a cameo from Shyloks which adds extra vibe. It's a successful mix of styles that Blackwolff has made his own.
