Husband and wife duo Derek and Teresa Taylor deliver a follow up to their 2001 album 'The Evolution Of Communication' and their blend of soulful vocals, hip-hop beats and hard hitting rhymes really works well. There's plenty here that impresses like the anti-materialism message of "More To Life" and the opening catchiness and upbeat soulful vibe of "Sunny Days". Whether they are celebrating the joys of 10 years of marriage on "Beautiful" or creating dance floor slams like "Get Yo Hands Up", this is packed with special cuts. The inspirational adaptation of the first chapter of James that closes the album is something special too.
