iTunes Review

Christian rapper Manafest (a.k.a. Chris Greenwood) confronts his fallen nature with a fearlessness that inspires something close to awe. Since his 2001 debut, he’s refined some of his more abrasive edges and turned up the melodic quotient of his tracks. Still, his essential instinct for truthful testimony hasn’t left him, as The Moment makes clear. Manafest has always spoken to the confusions and temptations of youth; though older and arguably wiser, he continues to display the urgency of a kid taking on a sinful world. “The Edge of My Life,” “Cage,” and “My Way” are empowering anthems that draw strength from the Savior. “Bull in a China Shop” conflates fast driving, loud sounds, and upfront faith into a hard-rocking whole. The Moment's emphasis on tuneful pop matches the outward reach of the lyrics. The born-again joy of “Love Wide Open” and the spiritual affirmation of “Diamonds” (featuring guest vocals by Thousand Foot Krutch’s Trevor McNevan) are bursts of welcome positive energy. “Don’t wanna be counted with the cowards,” Manafest declares in “Criminal.” Not to worry; The Moment finds him as valiant as ever.

Different, but not worse

I started listening to The Chase a couple years ago. It was one of my favorite albums. Fighter was a bit of a disappointment. This album is very different from either of those two. I would have thought I would dislike anything as non-rock as this, but I would have been wrong. This was a delightful surprise.

Grows on you…

For both Fighter and The Moment, I didn't like half of the songs. They really seem to grow on me. It is great music and his style did change.

What happened, Chris?

I helped with the kick-starter for this album, because I freaking love Manafest so much. I follow him on Instagram, and like all his stuff. I'm a fighter!! All Chris' other albums and songs are AMAZING. Life-changing and jam-worthy. I listen to Manafest every day. No one really compares. The rap, the rock, the screamo; everything beautifully blended together. But then this album.... I held my breath every time I checked my mailbox as I waited for my pre-ordered album to come in, because I was so stoked and ready to hear Manafest!! I was extremely disappointed when I got through listening to the album and realized it was all the same, boring, alternative sounding...bleh. NO ROCK. Just slow, non escalating music. And it all sounds the same. A couple songs like this would've been okay, I guess. To change it up. But there was no real rock or impressive raps like he's had in the past. I don't know. My heart is broken. I wanted Manafest.
