AllMusic Review by

Stuffed, but not overstuffed, at two CDs long, Dominionaire is Canton Jones’ most ambitious project to date, but that doesn’t mean he can’t coolly stroll and swagger through this big offering of “Kingdom Music.” Jones is R. Kelly-cool throughout the double album, but the message is, of course, entirely different as the singer relates all cuts to a psalm or passage in the Bible. As far as highlights, check the key track “G.O.D.” or “In da Club,” which reclaims coolness for the worship crowd with its infectious hook “They done let the Christians in da club/Oh my God!” Actually, check about anywhere here because this XL album is surprisingly filler-free as the seemingly unstoppable Jones keeps the momentum rolling for 22 tracks.
