I had previously given this cd a big thumbs down, I listened to 3 songs, then threw it in a box of items I was going to donate, well, my kids pulled the cd out and kept playing it. I decided to give it another try and focused on the different musical instruments, vocal mixes, and the fact that this is not the same as their previous cd's because of the absence of Nehemiah and the addition of three new men. The band stayed the same but has changed their playing to reflect a new era and still remain uniq to other bands, I play this cd quite often now and like the songs and the lyrics are fun on the faster songs. I think the vocals are good. The cd has some rap, disco, R&B and everything in between, I give it 4 stars for upbeat(makes you wanna shake it) and creativity.
