This full album from American rapper JayeMillenium begins in stark fashion with the grime expose "Pose" telling of the resurrection of Christ in conjunction with the artist's guilt with the repeated refrain "he rose, he rose, he rose/I still got blood on my clothes" creating a striking image of what it means to have the Saviour die for us whilst we were still sinners. Continuing in this serious vein, the affecting "Light & Scars" is a brave piece about very real issues such as self-harm and the loss of a child and JM - with help from singer Trinity Osorio - communicates matters here with skill, purpose and hope. Thankfully, there are some lighter moments with the likes of the half sung/half rapped title track oozing some albeit very recent nostalgia whilst the upbeat "Dangerous" communicates the rapper's underpinning relationship with God with nothing much more than an electric piano and some deft wordplay. Cameos from the likes of NXTMIKE, Drew Smith and Isaac Jemes add further diversity to an already fairly eclectic release.
