Following on from their successful debut 'Black And White', their second project shows that they still have loads to give to the Christian music scene. From the opening rap of "Got That Fire", the album has its heart on its sleeve with a wonderful mix of musical styles that blend seamlessly together to produce some truly excellent pop music. The songwriting, arrangements and production are top notch and even the couple of songs that feature guests collaborators - TobyMac and the Capital Kings - sit well in the general mix. "Making Me New" would give One Direction a run for their money - and totally outstrips them for lyrical content - and "Give Me Faith" shows just how a good ballad should be written. There really are no bad songs here and it is definitely a must have album is you like pop with R&B, dance and hip-hop influences. An exceptional release.
