Album Review
Reviewed 2007-04-08
West Coast, YayArea-style Christian Hip Hop. Heavy bass, major synth sounds and strong lyrics accentuate this album, from the ultra-emotional cuts bound to pull your heart strings, like When the Storm Comes, to the ultra in-your-face gangsta cuts like Steppin on Toes, if you like Bay Area style hip hop, you'll probably be feelin Minister RMB. Similar to E-40. **FCC Clean**. Picks, 2, 4, 5, 7, 12.

1) Intro- to the background of thunder and bells, etc.
*2) Rain continues, nice guitar plucking blend. Emotional and raw, shakers add to contemplative feel.
3) Heavy west coast, bay area influence- Bassy and layered. Like old styles from the Click or RLB Posse, but definitely fitting in the new millenium.
*4) Signature 808s and pianos, fast tempoed track.
*5) Nice plucking on this track- accoustic guitar carrying the beat; very passionately orchestrated and beat heavy after the intro, with smooth breaks that leave only the guitar plucking and piano ad lib b/t verses.
6) W/Pigeon John (always lighthearted), gangsta synths and violin coupled with a generous and syncopated hi-hat rhythm. A pizzicato style instrument laces the background
*7) Does a good job building into the song, using the intro and a synth sound which carries the song, musically. An anxious beat, makes me feel like I'm fighting through the jungle searching desperately for something.
8) Starts off with a soft and subdued string that sets the mood for the level of sobriety he expects from his listeners on the topic he's introducing. B/t the strings, the super-truncated claps and bass guitar (true sound), the mood is well created.
9) Intro- dealing with sexual immorality in the church.
10) Every man's battle: Same as above, dealing with not only the sexual inuendos in every arena of life, but the blatant attack of the devil against the men of the church through it- sex, porn, adultery, the thoughts, etc. Contemplative beat.
11) Upbeat, and bassy- knocks! Hard bass guitar to add flavor. Dedicated to Cali G's, and believers.
*12) Taken from E-40's popular Captain Save a ...; this is like a part b to 40s song, speakin to the woman selling herself and to the pimps and hustlas, letting her know that what she's really looking for is in Christ. Med tempo, f/Crow.
13) Orchestra hits and synths rule- real smooth beat on this one- to friends and family going through the struggle, holding on to Jesus- there's more to this life and afterwards to the faithful.
14) The Fellowship Continues (From #7)...Part B. True fellowship= devoted to Jesus, and devoted to each other.
15) Hot beat, the club banger! If you aint really living this walk, then don't talk about what I'm doing- That's so salty...!
16) Chimes and futuristic bass guitar sounds, Gotta get your life right b/c the Bridegroom is coming back soon for His bride and you want to be ready so you don't get left behind.
17) Remix of #2 w/Antonio Neal.
