diversifying Christian music
Posted September 26, 2007
This second album from Toby Mac takes a slightly different turn stylistically and creates an album almost as powerful as his debut Momentum. "The Slam" isn't quite as strong lyrically or musically as the similar rock songs "Momentum" or "Extreme Days" on Toby's debut album. I could also do without the speaking interludes (ex. "Poetically Correct"), which were tolerable in Momentum but are not as good here. They create an interesting break between songs but in general I don't like them. However, a welcome surprise to the end of the album is a remix of "Atmosphere" featuring the other two members of dc talk, Michael Tait and Kevin Max, reminding me how much I miss hearing their voices together. Overall though, this is a great album as Toby creates an album unlike anyone else in this industry, combining great songs and production with many different music genres.
