AllMusic Review by

Alex Boye has got plenty of soul and the convictions to match. His hip-hop treatment of LDS hymns, combined with masterful R&B originals, breaks ground previously untouched in the Utah music scene. This album is for the brave who are ready for hymns to gain new meaning through entirely rewritten melodies. If you are unprepared to hear "Count Your Many Blessings" set to a pop beat, you should steer clear of Boye's innovative arrangements. If, instead, you are ready to enter Utah's contemporary gospel scene, start with this danceable CD. Feel the love with "Keep Walking," "Faith Endures," and "Need to Know," then jam with the groove on "Think Again." It's as if Bobby Brown came back and landed right in the middle of Mormondom. Strong production quality and groove-laden vocals should keep this album in your stereo for a long time.
