TobyMac's new album releases February 9th of next year, but you can get a little (very little) taste of what's to come with the physical release of the single of "City On Our Knees."
If you have already bought the single on iTunes, this may be a waste of your time (if all you're interested in is the music, that is). The single (more like EP), opens with the title, R&B track which is a great song in itself; very inspirational and uplifting. The next two songs are remixes. The first one, "Lose My Soul (Shoc Remix)," is, in my opinion, probably the worst remix I've heard. In fact, it makes Relient K's remix of Family Force 5's song "The First Time" look really good. As for "Boomin' (UTB Remix)", you get your money's worth if you haven't already purchased it off of iTunes with the remix for "Ignition" (which would have been a much better choice to put on this album than the "Lose My Soul" remix). The remix for "Boomin'" also features a new rap interlude from Shonlock, a member of TobyMac's band, Diverse City.
The final track on the single is an interview with none other than Toby himself. It's a good 15 minutes of Toby talking about the making of the new record, and it's pretty interesting. The interview features a few snippets of some songs from the new record, Tonight, and the future certainly looks bright for fans of his work.
My final thoughts about this CD single: unless you're interested in hearing this interview (which you could probably find somewhere online), don't waste your time, and just buy the single off of iTunes and forget the "Lose My Soul" remix even exists.JFH Reader Review: Review date: 11/17/09, written by Michael Schaffer for Jesusfreakhideout.com
