This tasty album carries on Mista & Mrs Taylor's honest and clear presentation of the Gospel, with a mainly east coast and smooth street edge of which a great example can be found in "10,000". The couple produced 80 per cent of this album as they seek to present and write practical, easy to understand songs. This aim, like their production skills, is something they accomplish with aplomb. "I Tried It All" is an honest journey as Mista Taylor takes us through his life journey of trying everything before finding that Christ "is better" as Mrs Taylor brings the hook. In other tracks, Mrs Taylor joins Mista Taylor to emcee, such as the banging "Brand New". Deep, challenging tracks like "At A Distance" looks at Christ's life from a distance, and then seeks to apply it practically, over a piano hook. There are more than a few hints of rhythm and praise, such as the grooving "Crossover" and the soulful sounding "Run" as Mrs Taylor honestly shares her journey of stepping up and passionately running her race - encouraging us to do same. "Christlike" drops a minimalist, slow, dirty south flow as Christ and the Word is rep'd over a deep-styled beat. There is a range of fresh beats through the project, with "Throw Ya Hands Up", as we look forward to Christ's coming. The end comes with a time of reflection and praise.
