Completing the round of debut solo records from the members of dc talk, tobyMac delivers an album that completes the three pieces (rock, art and hip-hop) that make up the most successful Christian rock group in history. Momentum is everything we ever hoped for in a solo record from Toby, and then some. It's innovative, introspective, witty, humorous but most importantly, vertical. Songs like "In The Air" and "Yours" speak of sharing your faith and simply giving your life and everything you are to God. Momentum is all over the map musically, but the flow is just as smooth as Toby's rhymes. Tracks like "Get This Party Started," "Yours" and "Momentum" border along the same lines crossed by P.O.D., which "Love Is In the House" and "Irene" rely more on a melodic grooves. You know how some albums grow with you in time? With samples of familiar hooks combined with catchy rhymes and layered with gritty hard rock guitars, Momentum feels like an album you've been listening to all your life.
