Welcome to the Diverse City
Posted July 30, 2009
In this cd, tobyMac welcomes us to a place called Diverse City. It starts with a song called "Hey Now" which is fitting for a first song because it pretty much talks about him being back. We didn't see the last of him with Momentum. He's just getting started.
First off, I liked the songs "Catchafire" and "Ill-M-I" because they had an awesome beat. Then there was "Gone" which had a catchy tune and a storyline within the lyrics. "Burn For You" was also an interesting song that was really catchy. I liked "The Slam" because although it was a little hardcore, it actually had some good lyrics and was kind of catchy.
And finally, there's "Diverse City" which kind of became his anthem. I liked the upbeatness up it; it's a song you've just got to get up and dance to. But it also has some meaning to it:
"We will never become that shining city on a hill
until we truly become a diverse city."
It tells how we should accept all races and skin colors because we are all brothers and sisters of Christ. I think that is what tobyMac is all about.
My favorite song would have to be "Gotta Go" just because it takes skill and creativity to create a song out of just a few phone calls.
Overall I'd say this was a great accomplishment for tobyMac and one of his best cds yet.
