Can't Count Him Out
Posted August 10, 2009
In a world of autotune and over-produced tracks, The Tonic keeps it real. He puts enough beats and melody to get you to listen, but his lyrical and theological maturity keeps you listening. His latest CD, "The Dash" is a great example of how keeping things simple can make music great. For example, on "Can't Count Me Out", a background vocal chant is used to make the melody, then Tonic raps over the melody. No fancy techniques, just some beats and vocals.
I enjoyed this CD because it is an escape from today's music where lyrics are drowned out by over-produced tracks. Listeners will enjoy Tonic's great flow and clear message: "the dash"- our life here on Earth-is just as important as birth and death...so don't waste this short span of time!
