For the hardcore Toby Mac/dc Talk fan this alternative version of the CCM stars fourth album has been released. As well as the original album with its engaging fusion of pop, rock, R&B and hip-hop rhythms and its cavalcade of special guests (Relient K's Matt Thiessen, Skillet's John Cooper and Israel Houghton) the CD here also offers remixes of three of the album's strongest songs "Captured", "Tonight" and "Hold On", all of which have their moments. If that's not enough to whet your appetite there's also a DVD in the package offering 70 minutes of various documentary coverage including the ubiquitous Making Of The Album (with plenty of sightings of the special guests).

tobyMac’s new record Tonight is the highly anticipated follow up to the best-selling album Portable Sounds. Continuing Toby’s unique ability to blend musical influences Tonight has an amazing mix of rock, pop, urban and hip hop sounds and styles. It features the smash hit City On Our Knees.
"City On Our Knees is really about a moment," says Toby. "A moment that we all come together to a place where there’s no judgment, but really love. And we choose to recognise one God together. And it’s really a reminder that that moment could be right now, tonight. And in that moment judgment falls by the wayside, we choose to step across the line, whatever side we’re on. Love fills in the cracks and makes up the difference."
Special Edition includes Bonus DVD with approximately 1 hour of content (behind the scenes, making of, on tour footage).
