After 3 years of waiting, tobyMac's new CD (finally) dropped today. To be honest, I was a little worried about this album. Toby's first single (City On Our Knees) was terrible.
Am I being harsh?
I don't think so. tobyMac is one of the leaders in Christian music. He's the guy that is on the cutting edge of music. The guy who is putting himself out there trying something new, and pushing the art. So when he comes out with a song after 3 years, you'd expect it to blow your mind. Instead he gives us auto-tune. AUTO-TUNE! (Hasn't that been done already?)
So coming in to tonight I was worried Toby would let me down.
Well he didn't.
Tonight is a decent effort from Toby, and he hasn't abandoned his old slammin' style of music either. With guest appearances from John Cooper of Skillet, Matt Thiessen of Relient K and (of course) Tru-Dog, there is plenty of star power to last through the record.
Overall it's a good CD... just a bad pick for a lead single.
