The theme behind 'Every Tribe' is to bring a project together that truly features artists from around the globe - each bringing their own elements, fusions and flavours. The project certainly succeeds in bringing different worldwide tunes and rhymes and the production across the project is great, with many tight and inspiring beats. One of my favourite tracks comes in "Voice Beyond Reason" featuring Mr Dialysis from Birmingham (no home bias here!). Other standouts include the epic end-times ode in "Final Hour" featuring XPIGX, aided by live instrumentation (as with many tracks including "Awaken The Dawn" and the thought provoking "Little Boy" with Sestor from Nigeria, although not very African-sounding!). The eerie and percussion-focused "Inspiration" sees Alan C Duncan bringing a riveting verbal flow to the track. Spoken inserts come from Australia with "Stolen Innocence" by James Galea while India is represented by the renowned speaker and author Ravi Zacharias. We draw to a close with "Photoshop Girl" with a strong vocal hook and message about true beauty. Then, a spoken word from Ireland with Peter Rollins in "I Deny The Resurrection" - not a heresy, but cleverly meaning that we deny the resurrection every time we don't live like Christ calls us to. We end with Revelation, hope, Heaven and eternity in "Every Tribe". Not everything on this project works but one can't help be impressed by the international vision of Ohio-based rapper Davis.

Every Tribe truely lives up to its name. It tells of the storys that happen through out our lives. It shows that what is happening to you in the USA is going on in the UK. With the answers being the same The true Light of God being the center and the true Fix that hurts us deeper than our familys know. The beats and riffs, the movement of the nonstop pulse pounding music. truely is the work of touched artists

A catchy album and easy to listen to, yet very lyrical. It leaves room for thinking.

My favorite track is #2- "Voice Beyond Reason" featuring Mr. Dialysis
