I just can't get into tobyMac. I don't know what it is, but I just can't stand some of his songs. I like Momentum, Yours, What's Goin Down, and Extreme Days, and Irene was okay..but I regretted buying this. I don't think he's a good rapper, he raps kinda slow...and that lady in the background drives me nuts. So yea...J Train, Somebody's Watching, Do You Know, Wondering Why...I don't know about those, didn't like them to much. I did get his new CD Diverce City, it was the same. I like about half the songs, and the other ones I hate. So there is my review..I give Momentum a 4.

I love this cd and I really like Somebody's Watching because I heard it for the first time when I got the cd, and I never hear it on the radio. I also totally dig Momentum, and the whole cd is great.

Stratchick: and the whole cd is great.

Here is the focal point...the WHOLE Cd...not a song or two..but the whole thign is great.

It took me a while to adjust..at first I thoghut it was just retarded..but now that I gave it a chance..I lvoe it from start to finish.

[QUOTE=Who Ever I please]ok for them who dont know what momentum is about ill expin cause i can [/QUOTE]

Somebody said you better let go
(some one said stop)
'Cause they said so
(because they said to)
But I could never let this thing go
(hes talkin about he god i think)
Don't they even know what that means
(saying "this mean more then they can think)
They call me obscene
(they call him obscene)
Say I wear my faith on my sleeve
(says he shows his faith freely)
But I ain't here to seek no glory
(hes not trying to be famous)
End of story, I know the judge and the jury
(he knows the people who want to put him in jail proby just here cause it can be)
People always gotta ask who, what, when, and why
(they wanna know the facts)
But never wanna step to the light
(never wanna go to god)

So I hear you say you wanna come and get some
(you wanna fight)
Should I mention I got your attention
(your looking at him)
Know that I'm a man on a mission, my position is
Momentum
(hes saying hes go a job to do and momenum later said to be his relgion)
[CHORUS]
Been on a roll for two thousand years or so
(umm ya jeaus 2k years ago)
We've got momentum baby
(they arnt gonna go down easy)

Livin' on the edge of obnoxious
(close to anoying)
They call me raucous
(unplesnt loud harsh)

I'm a freak, I can't stop this
(he cant stop loveing god)
Ardently enthused about God
(he loves him)
No hand-me-down nod
(not skum probly for filling purorus)
Your gonna get all I got
(your gonna get all he can show you)
High-steppin' from the twenty on in
(football move also called highknees)
Knees to my chin
(more football move)
I'm rollin' deep in momentum
(hes got TONS of Momentum)
Burnin' with the hard core flame
(you cant put him out easy)
No shame in this game
(hes no ashamed)
I'm followin' my heart not my brain
(he dose what he thinks he should not what seems right)

[CHORUS]

Been on a roll
(got moumton)
Cause we got souls that won't die
(cause they wont stop)
And this party ain't over 'til we take flight
(the arguments not just over till the leave)
You've been told that we come bold on this side
(they got aruments)
You ain't never known the dilly 'til we testify
(they dont knowanything till they tell you)
Cause have you ever heard of turnin' water into wine
(he turned water into wine for a weding)
And have you ever heard of givin' sight back to the blind
(jesus makes a blind man see)
It's undeniable we're droppin' the Truth on this track
(saying hes not lieing in this song)
Cause once you start an avalanche there ain't no turnin' back
(compareing christany to an avalance and you cant stop it)

It's illegal to post the full lyrics of a song.

i absolutely loved this cd! i saw toby in concert a little over a year ago in concet with Festival Con Dios, and immediatly bought his cd. There is only one song i don't like, "J-train." But overall i give the cd a 9...almost 10!!!

Posted on 02-01-2003 by dcaudiopc3fan
:D This is my favorite cd(not including audo adrenaline lift.) I think he did a great job with his rap. Rap isnt really my favorite style because there is nothing really behind it. But toby can really make it great. I give it a 10!!!!

Posted on 03-01-2004 by Jimvee
I think he did a great job with his rap. [/QUOTE]

You must not listen to much rap. He raps way too slow and his rhymes really aren't that great or meaningful. He's much better at doing just straight rock stuff, he's got a nice, loud, edgy voice that really makes a lot of the songs. But he uses way too many effects that make the cd sound very messy.

Posted on 04-13-2004 by Brian-Alexander
i gave it a 10. he rocks and i even got his autograph that i misplaced somehow. hmm

Posted on 04-13-2004 by bass_playa20
i gave it a 9 even though i have all his cd's that are out

Posted on 04-18-2003 by Strangelynormal
Awesome

I recently pilfered this cd from one of my friends on the plane to Guadalahara.I never got the cd because I held the opinion that any DC Talk member couldnt possibly be any good without the group but I was wrong. Its funny that the one black guy in the group is anti rap and one of the white guys put out a rap cd

Posted on 04-18-2003 by Heavy C
I was talkign recently to soembody about that..

the black guy went rock adn the white guy went rap..haha....paradigms are shifting folks..pardigms are shifting...

Toby's blend of hipin hard rock has soemthign for everyone tho peeps....i don't think Momentum is Gold Certified yet..lets kick it up to the level eh?

I love Toby mac my favorite song is get this party started. I like his rock better then his rap, his rap is prety good but a litle to slow

Posted on 06-16-2002 by Mark
its a good cd if you like rap rock style. I don't like the whole cd , but there are several songs that really do sound great.

Posted on 06-16-2002 by SenorPapaCabasa
Compared to other rap rock cds...it was great, compared to other cds in general it was ok.... it gets a 7

Posted on 06-22-2003 by lizwrenne
very worshipful. talks a lot about the problems in the american society. i like that. even my bonehead of a heath teacher would appreciate how toby tackles the problems youngins face today. i know i appreciate it and you should too. nice and loud rap, hip hop, r & b, hardcore... lots of variety.

Posted on 07-11-2002 by Underhill
I gave it 9

Posted on 07-19-2002 by JcMax200
this cd rocks, im ussually not into rap, but Momentum hits the spot

Posted on 07-20-2002 by OneWithTheMud
overall, it's a good cd. momentum is the best song on it.

Posted on 07-29-2002 by tropicana
Some good tracks, some bad tracks. I liked "Get this Party Started" and "Momentum" as good rally songs. "Irene" has a nice, hip-hop groove. "Tru-Dog" is adorable. I liked the song "Extreme Days" as much as I liked the movie (Which is saying something) The electronic sound of "Toby's Mac" and "Triple Skinny" is.... interesting. It took me a few listens to determine it was "freaks" and not "breifs" in the former. "In the Air" has a cool vibe, as does "Love Is In The House". However, I don't like "J-Train", and "Somebody's Watching Me" is too frequently played. In all, is ranks an 8.

Umm... to be honest i wasn't really impessed with this cd. He only striaght up raps a few times on the cd. He had a lot of rapcore on there. I love rapcore, but i really didn't think much of his rapcore. 7.

Posted on 08-20-2003 by yogiboy
tobymac is awesome on this cd! i absolutely love this cd. I first heard toby at icthus and instantly enamored his style and music. this cd is amazing. irene is my favorite song along with j-train. i would give this cd a 10

Posted on 09-02-2004 by Unregisted
I love this cd so much it has alot of new beats and a great rythm! I wouldn't mind going all over the world and listening to this cd..going already to one concert with my youth group--i had to get the CD..i'll give it two dumbs up

Posted on 09-02-2004 by j0s1ah
i have this cd, but i am not a big rap fan so i don't listen to it much. a few tracks i really like. irene is a good song.
toby mac was great on the dc talk album free at last.

Posted on 09-07-2004 by Elms
DO NOT BUY THIS CD. A POOR ATTEMPT OF RAP.

Posted on 09-15-2003 by Laurel
This CD is totally awesome! I gave it a 10 because he is so my fave! If you haven't seen him in concert, you are TRULY missing out on one of the best concerts I've ever seen!

Posted on 10-10-2002 by Jonular
Momentum is my most favorite CD, along with P.O.D.'s Satellite.

Edit: Haha. Wow. This post is stupid.

That's pretty cool. However, even though I love his music, he isn't the best rapper I've ever heard.

Posted on 11-12-2004 by tastetherainbow
i really like tobymac and his style but he stinks at rapping. i really liked the song extreme days. its so cool. i also loved the song irene. i agree with tropicana about somebody's watching me. its too frequently played. he gets an 8
