toby cranks up the heat | Posted February 08, 2010
So far this will be the biggest release for the season. Toby always brings his original funky tunes to the market and this is no different. If you like toby you will love tonight...if you don't like his style of music you probably wont care for this project.
For me i love the beats of his new tunes. Don't find many christian artist's that have his unique vibe. Love how he is all over the charts with his music rock/rap/hip-hop/jamician sound, slower tunes...he loves to mix it up which i will always applaud him for.
I agree with a few people that his lyrics aren't the best on this project but the music is so catchy who cares. I think he does have some great lyrics on this mix, but a few songs did seem to lack.
Many of the songs speaks to me on my own journey thought life. Get Back Up is one that relates to me well. I have felt beat up and knocked down the past few years but this song reminds me to never lose the faith and get back up.
Hey Devil is a catchy tune that talks about temptation...another topic i think many of us go though.
Funky Jesus Music is probably the catchiest song on the project.
Also a fan of Hold On, ShowStopper,Start Somewhere, and Tonight.
Don't think it is his best work to date because up to this point i loved all 3 projects start to finish. This project found a few that didn't work for me. Overall I love the project but towards the end it starts to lose a little steam for me. Captured, Break Open The Sky, Changed Forever are a few songs that I didn't care for.
Also wasn't a fan of trudog this time around (in the past loved his stuff but his feature wasn't as cute as when he was younger) Even though I didn't care for a few songs I can appreciate his unique style he brings to each song.
Overall this project is amazing and find many songs that surpass his previous projects...just a few tunes didn't work for me. He continues to crank up the tunes and leaves me wanting more. Wish more christian artists would deliver a similar style in music because it seems to be lacking in the christian market.
