Here are three videos from the 'Momentum' album from a creatively revitalised TobyMac enjoying life as a solo artist. With cutting edge MTV style clarity. There's the sci-fi story-line of "Extreme Days" with its alternative harder ending if Christian TV companies are brave enough to screen it. Then there's the grimy street sussed "Let's Get This Party Started" with suitably grainy footage and then the best of the lot, "Irene". Maybe it's the powerful lyrical message or maybe it's the creative ideas for the vid that make this special but its impact is nonetheless stunning. For extras you get a montage of live behind the scenes footage complete with cameos from Mary Mary and Kirk Franklin fooling around. There's also a documentary about the making of the "Irene" video. It's great value and a fun DVD.
