Tribe Of Benjamin come on strong on Integrity's latest venture into urban praise music. The album kicks in with the title track, an upbeat song which encourages to praise God no matter what the circumstances are, Track three, "Git Yo' Prayze On", sounds like an imitation of Blackstreet's "No Diggity". On its own, this song is all right, but when compared to Blackstreet, it is a fairly poor imitation. One thing that I must commend this album on, however, is the idea of introducing an R&B flavour into traditional praise songs. It is a brilliant idea, but unfortunately, in this case, it sounds too much like the rest of the traditional praise and worship stuff that's already been released by Integrity. Overall, a fairly average album. In my opinion, in order for Integrity music to make a good R&B flavoured praise and worship album, they need to step out from the predictable praise and worship that they regularly produce, and become more adventurous.
