TobyMac This is not a test CD review

About TOBYMAC:

Toby McKeehan(known professionally as TobyMac) is a husband, father, performer, songwriter, producer, and businessman.  Growing up in the northern Virginia suburbs adjacent to Washington D.C. helped instill his love for rap music.  While attending Liberty University during the mid 80s, Toby met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith and these three friends formed the Grammy winning, platinum selling group dc Talk.  Toby began his solo career in 1999 with his first solo album, Momentum, releasing in 2001.  Momentum has been followed by four additional studio albums, Welcome to Diverse City (2004), Portable Sounds (2007), Tonight(2010), and Eye On It (2012), along with his first live album, Alive and Transported (2008).  This Is Not A Test is his 6th studio album to be released.  Starting with dc Talk, and then going solo when the group disbanded, Toby still clings to such rootsy notions as hard work, persistence, patience, and - perhaps most relevant of all - the power of music, which he insists is still what keeps him going.  "It's the truth," he says.  "I still believe that a song can penetrate a heart.  I believe God can use a song to open someone's mind and heart."  
Sharing from my heart:

I've always been a huge fan of TobyMac so I was super pumped when I got asked to review his latest CD that's being released today August 7th, 2015th (my grandma's birthday)!

I listened to the whole CD and really liked the whole thing, here are a few thoughts about several songs that spoke to me and my family.

Like a Match is a catchy tune that will get you pumped up.

This is not a test is definitely my all time favorite song on the album, the music was techno hip hop which is what I'm into right now, unless it's worship music.

Lift you up had some soul and funk mixed together which made for a really cool song.

My teenagers really enjoyed the song Backseat Driver and even thought it would be a great song to dance to, they're hip hop dancers if you didn't already know this.
