It's was a rollercoaster ride for me.
Posted June 29, 2008
By tobyMacrazed,


If you can't tell by my username, I'm a rather large fan of tobyMac. So I was obviously anticipating this album more than anything else that entire year. It was something that was the beginning and end of my calendar.

Portable Sounds is a very cleverly unique album. It's from toby, so what did I expect? He can't be put into a box, and this third album just pushed even farther from any genre lines, it's not even funny.

When I first got it, I immediately started listening. The second song, "Made To Love" (the first single from the album), had been playing on the radio station for quite some time, so I knew what that was all about. I liked that song.

There were a few others that I fell in love with as soon as I heard them. "No Ordinary Love" just has a great sound, along with a great lyrical meaning. "Face of the Earth" has a more down to earth feel, a bit more emotional, I enjoyed that from toby. "Ignition" blew me away at first listen. But some of the other songs I didn't take to right away. For example,the album's opening song "One World" seemed a little to 'in your face' and abrupt.

It had to grow on me, though, it just had to. AND it did. I now enjoy all the songs. I can find the album on my mp3 player, and listen to it all the way through without having to skip any songs.

If you haven't yet bought it, I encourage you to. Just be aware, it's not the same as any his other projects. But then again, you weren't really expecting that, were you? You may love it right away, or it may have to grow on you. But I can almost promise, you will love it.
