    I'm not a huge P.O.D. fan, but they are faaaaaaar from one hit wonders. Definitely one of the most successful Christian rock/nu-metal bands. I mean, their lead singer has been on a song with Lecrae.

    No, still wrong. At minimum, the top 4 on this list were main stream radio hits. But probably more. Like I said, not a huge P.O.D. fan but have listened some in the past.

    I agree with the sentiments about Lecrae biting off current trends sonically in hip hop. Lecrae has never had his own sound which has always annoyed me. Unlike a Cole, KRIT, or Kendrick, you pretty much know what to expect from them. I felt his most cohesive projects sound wise were Church Clothes and CC3.

    With that said this last album is some of the better production Crae has had. The t-minus beat (Broke) doesn't thump like I thought it would based off the live performances so that was underwhelming, but the Come and Get Me, Lucked Up, Wish You trifecta is some really nice in the middle of the album which is where Crae has usually fallen off for me.

    Blessings is still one of the better songs one the album despite being the first single (well until Can't Stop me Now made the cut). Whatchu Mean belongs on Aha's album, as that's more authentic stylistically to him - Crae just sounds like he's biting trends reallll bad on it.

    Always Knew, Facts, Blessings, Come and Get Me, Lucked Up, Wish You the Best, and Worth It are the songs I'll play the most.

    Hammer Time had potential, wish Crae did two verses and just let 1kphew do the hook. 1kphew kind of kills it for me.

    Not a fan of how Lecrae raps/changes his voice on Broke, that along with the lack of thump on the beat were buzz kills for me although I still like the song.

    I'll Find You is a good song, but a total radio fabrication sonically which isn't my preference. Song has been much more powerful to me since hearing it was written for DJ Official and written at the time he was dealing with his health issues.

    Was really bummed Can't Stop me Now made the album. It's not a bad song, but it came out eons ago and when Lecrae says he's got 100s of unreleased songs I felt it was a bit cheap throwing that one on the album.

    Don't care for 8:28 and Cry for You at all...

    What do you disagree with? Paeday? Its actually not good to fellowship with every christians in forums.

    We Christians are the most difficult we are the only ones that have different point of views on the word and faith Which is why i am leaving and never coming back.

    Lecrae sold around 23k copies (38 including streams) in the opening week. Definitely not what he was aiming for. Curious as to whether the burst of singles released at the end was to try and generate more preorders because they saw it this coming. This is definitely a better album than Anomaly imo.

    Thanks for posting some detailed feedback. I always enjoy reading when people can describe what they do and don't like about it. Something I'm working on myself. haha

    I'll have to give it another couple of listens and really try and sit down with the lyrics. Thus far, I have to say I liked Anomaly more .

    I still do not understand why people hate him? Iz it because he speaks on police brutality? He lose aloof white people fans bec ause that as far as everyone else it seems like people just want him to be a undèrground christian as soon as he hit 88k on his last album then everyone got crazy. I wonder sometimes do this clique of chh believe that being unsuccessful is more Christian than being successful? Sad christians behave way.

    This song still brings tears to my eyes. So amazingly done, but so amazingly powerful with the truth.
