This is the second full album from the UK-based MOBO, Dove and Steller nominated hip-hop and grime artist. The title is taken from track seven (!) exploring the use of the perfect number in Scripture. This is by far the most intense track on the album, the rest is more approachable. "Good Friday" is a celebration of the weekend enhanced with the addition of the dreamy vocals of J Williams. "Homesick" is an example of Jayess' strong suit, his ability to tell a story while conveying hope, in this case a homeless man turning his life around, with James Anderson providing the vocals. There is also great humour to be found interspersed in the lyrics, here the subject turns to his dog for advice, but "he don't speak". "Forgive Me" is a radio-friendly track delivering encouragement to let go of resentment. Jayess proves once again that he can deliver top drawer hip-hop in a variety of styles that can compete with the best!
