Cincinatti-based Creature Clan comprise of D-Maub and Eric Cross. This album buzzes with energy, life, edge and is inspirational to "represent the Kingdom to the hurts." (as in the fired-up "I Go To Work"). As well as the rappers DJ Klassy K brings some scratching skills to "The Explanation" as the duo explain how we're new "creations/creatures" in Christ. This theme is taken up in the following track, the explosive "I'm A Creature". There are some slightly slower joints on 'New Beginnings': on "Take Control" featuring Kaboom we're encouraged to keep going as we let stuff go and give it to God, "..and that can wear you down, but know that everything you're going through is to get you going to the one who wears the crown." "Pobody's Nerfect" features Chris Lee Cobbins and deals with some deep issues, regrets, struggles and God's restoration. We build up into the anthemic "The Light" featuring Calandra Williams which uplifts as we're encouraged to shine bright as Christ gets the limelight. Production is from varied producers and is right up there with anything the world has to offer. Nice to see Pettidee drop some lines on the fast-flowing and incredible staccato deliveries on "Let It Burn". A fine set.
