What does the popular Christian rap duo need to Reiterate at this point in their career? Well, judging by the sound of their eighth album, quite a lot. Grits seem intent on proving themselves all over again now that they have left Gotee Records. The artistic independence brought on by that move seems to have had quite an impact, as this is some of Teron Carter and Stacy Jones' best work in their 15 years together. The lyrics are carefully connected, while their Southern-style rap draws from contemporary rap artists Lil Wayne and T-Pain and then takes a serious sidestep to the '80s new wave sounds of Depeche Mode and Duran Duran. You really have to hear it to believe it, but the formula pays off big time. Together with a list of surprising guests -- Dan Haseltine (Jars of Clay), Mac Powell (Third Day), Martha Munizzi, and Britt Nicole -- the album's power rap is perfectly balanced with soul and rock influences. Anyone who has followed Grits over the last decade will enjoy this offering.
