Anthony DeMore, who records under the Yahweh's People moniker, comes out of the Bronx and his mission is to call Christians to stand firm on the foundation of truth which is Christ, in a time when the world is upside down, where bad is "good" and good is "bad". The album contains the depth of Anthony's love for God, evidenced in tracks like "Lord I Love You" with an old skool and simple flow focusing on the Lord. We are encouraged to read the Word and "check through these verses, like you're looking for jewels, cos in these Scriptures are life." in "These Words Are Life". In "Dark Terrain", probably my favourite track, the flow matches the subject as we are reminded this world is a dark terrain and Jesus is the light. The album also fixes our eyes on God and his ultimate victory - with DeMore challenging us that although it's a war, God is going to win. As he says in "Brethren", "God is calling you to life." Overall, an experimental and encouraging project.
