If Toby McKeehan is suffering from withdrawal symptoms now that DC Talk are less rap and more rock, he more than makes up for it with sharing the vocal duties on 'Erace'. The album continues some of the themes explored on 'Jesus Freak' with a selection of songs subtitled 'A Project To Eliminate Racism'. The powerful opener, "Yoknapatawpha - A Mental Mississippi", is a vibrant panoramic scene setter which includes a brief hilarious detour into country music! "Celia" and "Sweet Tea" feature guest rapper Teron Carter from GRITS, both with strong jazz influenced rhythms and atmosphere. Toby's pal Kevin Smith turns up on "Poetry, Prose And Other Sundry", a pastiche of radical statements about racism float across a back beat in a bout of creativity which is ear catching. "The Wages Of Sin" steals a Steely Dan riff, "New South" has a southern soul feel with a smattering of harmonica thrown in. "Brother's Keeper" sums up so much of this album, it is a modern reminder to love thy neighbour whatever the colour. Overall, this is a mindblowing smorgasbord of musical influences - jazz, rap, soul, rock, gospel which never miss the beat as they are souped up into a potent indictment of racism and those who practise it. "This album is the musical expression of frustration," says the sleeve notes and for once I'm left hoping that music really can change the world.

This is one of the best albums ever! I do not know why it is not widely known. You can find it on eBay. That is where I got my copy. Really, I wish they had more of this, I cant say enough about it! I love DC Talk, and TobyMac, I would have to say this album is up with the best of those, if not even better. If you do not have this album, get it ASAP, you will love it!
