Toby Mac: Eye On It

Site Score
5.0
Good: Masterfully Composed and Fresh
Bad:

Eye on it, tobyMac’s latest album it’s a fresh take from a seasoned performer. If i had to classify this album I couldn’t. To try and lump this album into a single genre would be doing it an injustice, it seemingly has a bit of everything with roots in hip-hop TM makes a nice transition over to more of a Pop sound but also mixed in some reggae and electronic tones the likes I haven’t seen from any other christian artists, I mean come on what Christian artist have you heard use anything even remotely close to a dub-step break?

The deluxe version is jam packed with great tracks and some great remixes, I find myself unable to let this album go. I love the quick transitions from upbeat pop track to a soulful almost “owl city-esque” sound. The message is also loud and clear on this album and very much rooted in his christian beliefs but not overpowering as to turn away non-believers.

The production quality on this album is second to none, equal in kind and quality to its secular counter parts, the tracks from a sound perspective sound like anything in the mainstream secular hip-hop, pop, or whatever genre this is supposed to be.

All in all I would highly recommend this album to any existing TobyMac fans, or to anyone looking for something fresh in the Christian Music Scene.

    This album always gives me a lift when I listen to it. The music is upbeat and fresh with some really positive messages. I particularly like his emphasis on wanting God to use his music and that it’s not about his own personal fame. He generally stays away from cliches and his message seems to be a personal one that comes out of his own experience. I always love artists who stay away from the typical love ballad that we hear so much of in Christian music and try to keep it fresh and real … by and large he does this although the 2nd half of the album is not quite as strong.
