First Max, then Tait, and now Mac gives us the long awaited, third, solo project from dc Talk. This eclectic album takes you on a breathtaking tour of diverse styles from gospel, on "J Train" (featuring Kirk Franklin), to hard music, "Yours" and "Extreme Days" (featured on the film soundtrack), to the more subtle shades of hip hop, "Irene" and "In The Air" (a take of a classic Motown hit), all with Toby's infectious touch of rap throughout. The mixture of so many styles on this project made it tricky to place it under a category; perhaps rock would have been just as apt! But, don't let that put you off, as the production and lyrical quality is suburb, with talented contributions coming from the likes of DJ Form, DJ Maj, Pete Stewart, Mooki and Otto Price. A great album for group playing and personal listening as there is something for everyone (well, almost!).
