A unrefined Toby
Posted September 05, 2007
Momentum, the first album from Toby Mac when he went solo, is a rock' in rap/hip hop album with some good lyrics to back it up.
Toby Mac has a wide verity of the before mentioned music on his large CD, most of which is very creative but also a little raw. Toby Mac rock/raps on the tracks "what's going down", "get this party started", and the title track "momentum" all which sound very good. The even heavier songs "extreme days" and "yours" are over done, thus not that impressive.
Toby Mac's hip hop/rap tunes include "J train", "Irene", and "some ones watching me" which are simple and not very fun. On the other hand "in the air" and "love is in the house" are more up beat and better sounding that helps bring a balance to Momentum. After that, there is a lot of wasted space on Toby Mac's eighteen track CD, which is the biggest down fall of the disc.
Momentum passes on some great messages, as Toby Mac ha a good grasp on present culture, which is showed on the song "what's going down". He also packs good layrics up and down his CD, like "in the air" and "momentum" among others. Even though there are some meaningless songs on the album, Toby Mac's primary focus is the Allmighty.
Some great stuff on Momentum, but most of it is only good or not impressive, as there is a lot of wasted tracks. But Toby Ma debut still packs a punch with his rap/rock tunes and his great lyrics.
