EDITORS’ NOTES

Whatever storm you face, TobyMac has a song to help you weather it. The Elements continues the positive faith-first ideology that has propelled the former DC Talk member into one of CCM’s leading voices. TobyMac injects his spirit and devotion in fresh ways—updating his sound with the latest hip-hop, pop, and dance trends. He rekindles his friendship with rapper Aaron Cole to send a message of compassion on “Starts With Me” (the MLK samples are a moving touch). “Everything” and “Edge of My Seat” celebrate the presence of the Savior with sleek dance-pop. And album closer “See the Light” is a joyous invitation to release your burden and raise your hands up, no RSVP required.

I like TobyMac, but...

...I wish his lyrics were deeper/more about Jesus being glorified instead of a focus on "I" or "ME."

Many of these songs could be about a human relationship instead of a worship of a magnicifcent Creator.

At this point in my life, I want Jesus to be magnified. Not me. I don't need Joel Osteen in preaching and I certainly don't need Toby to be the Joel Osteen of CCM.

The beats and music itself is modern and could be played on Top 40, which is always a good thing...but again, I want something set apart like we are commanded to be (Romans 12:2, 1 Peter 2:9).

I used to love Toby, and i still do, i just cant quite get into this new style with the cringey background vocalists... its good dont get my wrong. I dont like to be a hater, so ill be optimistic and gove it 4/5 👍🏼

Childhood hero

TobyMac has always been an inspiration to myself in my past back before I was even in the fifth or sixth grade. I actually had the chance to meet him twice. Once before one of his concerts and the second time after one of his concerts. I’ve probably seen him perform a live concert 2 more then likely 3 times probably. I actually haven’t listened to his new record quite yet as I’ve been so busy with my life. I am just here to share how he has always been a life changer/life hero in my past and his music has always been very uplifting and inspirational.
