If you haven't come across The 29th Chapter then you've missed out. Over 10 years they rocked the mic, giving God glory at shows across the UK and beyond. (I personally remember catching them in their early days at a gig in Harlesden, alongside the pastor of Crossover church in Tampa Florida, Urban D). In early 2012, The 29th Chapter announced they were calling it a day and played their final show in May. But this, their final album, ensures their legacy won't be completely lost. The title track immediately lifts us Heaven-bound as we groove over a 4/4 beat and autotuned vocals, with catchy hooks and a pulsating party vibe. A similar spacey uplifting vibe is found in "Move With Me" and in the incredibly bouncy "Invincible". In "Make It" we hear the testimony of the crew as they made their musical way. The 29th Chapter manage to bring inspiring messages aplenty ("Lights, Camera, Action" and "Through Time"), while spreading life lessons, relating Christ practically to life and producing some pop-infused tracks like "Movement". The western way of greed is brilliantly called out in "These Dreams". A tremendous final album.
