It's all about being real and second chances on 'The Whole Truth'. Personally I'm reminded of a truth, which if we don't adhere to as Christians might lead us down a spiral down turn of pride, and it's that we are Christians not because we are perfect people but because we have received the grace, forgiveness and righteousness of Jesus Christ which also leads and empowers us to do the same, to give grace and to walk in righteousness.

On 'The Whole Truth' rapper D.A. T.R.U.T.H comes clean about his own sin and how God exposed him publicly ('Lights') and tells listeners the hard price they have to pay for the pleasures of sin and also begs for their forgiveness ('The Whole Truth'). Listeners are encouraged on the hard rock influenced sound 'Impossible' that God can do the impossible if we take our eyes off what we can see. 'Without God' follows in the same vein musically but with a throw back style. One of the things that really got me excited when I got this record was that one of my favorite worship leader, Mia Fieldes (who is popularly known for her participation in the Hillsong United band) was featured on a song ('The Whole Truth'). And the Skylar Grey -esque track is a must listen though very similar in progression to the popular 'Coming Home' song by Dirty Money and Skylar Grey but it's still a fresh tune you don't want to miss. 'Can't Believe' which features Eric Greene starts off like 'Bones' by Hillsong United but runs into something Pitbull would pull off if he had a duet with hot stepper Usher. Yes, its got that dancehall flavor, amazing tune.

The Akon styled 'Cherished' which features Grammy award winning artist Cece Winans would blow your heart away. Tracks like 'Go Misfit Go!', 'Alive', 'Survivor' (which features the amazing 'Suzy Rock') and 'Ain't Going Back' are a musical revolution. Haven't heard anything like them before.

This album is a great comeback for D.A. T.R.U.T.H. It's beautiful hearing someone talk about how they are receiving grace from people and God after a fall ( seriously nobody talks about stuffs like this these days). And it's not just the transparency, this record can get any party bumping. Wondering what this is all about and wanna hear the whole truth? Go get D.A. T.R.U.T.H's new album, it's 'The Whole Truth'.
