Now that the Worldwide Message Tribe have been snapped up Stateside by Scott Blackwell, we were wondering if Britain could throw up anyone else that good. Well, get ya Union Jacks out boys and girls, 'cos here comes another bunch good enough to take the entire Christian world by storm! N-Daze have put together one kickin' album. It features rap quite heavily, but there's enough variety and melody to gain the more general 'dance' label. First track up is "The Word", which is vastly superior to any other British Christian rap I've heard (not that many of us have heard much). My favourite track is "Serious" with its delightfully jazzy piano licks and engaging lyrical ideas that climax with the proclamation "When Jesus rose from the dead, that was SERIOUS!" The entire album sounds authentic -every rap, every vocal hook, every rhythm track sounds like it's laid down by someone who knows exactly what they're doing. Are you listening Mr Blackwell?

This is easily my favourite Christian album of all time, and I'm gutted that I can't find it anywhere. Anyone know where I can get a copy of this work of genius, especially The Purifier...
