1 BewertungTobyMac - Tonight
TobyMac's 4th album Tonight was released in February 2010. To be honest, I was absolutely shocked with the style he has undertaken. His first two albums were rap and hard rock but he he completely makes a new genre by fusing hard rock, metal, rap, pop and electronic into this sort of new pop rock genre. Because of this, I thoroughly commend him for actually making new music and being original. Most of the tracks in the album are solid but a few are shockingly bad but I guess that shows that TobyMac is willing to experiment with different sound and genres to such an extent that not everyone will like every song on the album. The reason I've come to this is because the ones I don't like are really different from the other tracks on the album too.

The standouts are City On Our Knees, Get Back Up and Hold On which are all cool and awesome electronic tracks. City On Our Knees is the only ballad on the album (which is good because you need a balance), Get Back Up is one of the few pop rock tracks and Hold On is a really good electronica track.

I would have preferred the album to start with Get Back Up but Tonight has a lot of mainstream potential. The worst track is Loud N Clear and unfortunately the album starts to go downhill after that track, not really picking up until the final track Break Open The Sky which is in a really cool Jamaican style.

EDIT: I thought Tonight would be the 4th and final single but it baffles me why he had to release another 2 singles, Start Somewhere and Changed Forever. I hope he stops and releases another album soon. City On Our Knees (the first single) was released in late 2009!
