KJ describes this as the hardest and most rewarding record he's ever made, taking the listener behind the music to his life - and to Christ. "Are You Real" drops a Linkin Park style. "Just Rock With It" is for the bboys with an electro beat. There's a remix of "God" with Rebecca St James. "Behind The Musik" has an East Coast feel with soulful vocals - KJ taking us on a journey through his life. On "Thank You" KJ thanks his family, with Kollins Community Choir (kids) on the hook. "Right Here" features Jeremy Camp, a deep and worshipful track. "Video Games" sees KJ wordplay around the names of video games. A couple of tracks do remind me of Eminem - "Fivetweezy" and "Plain White Rapper" but both work. "Life After Death" challenges the listener about life after death, over a rock crossover beat. "Never Look Away" is nice, with soothing vocals. "For The Ladies" is a powerful message for ladies, with an Usher style chorus. "I Can Call On You" is a beautiful R&B rap crossover. "Cry No More" tells of a boy's healing from abuse. "One" sees KJ reminding us, "It still all comes down to one love one God and one way". We end with "He Is All" about our Father in Heaven being our all. Powerful stuff.
