Album Summary for Da Truth - The Big Picture:

Like it's title suggests, the directive of this album is to immerse the listener in a collection of songs that paint a vast picture. As a matter of fact, this album aims to paint the grandest of pictures imaginable: The fall of man and God's redeeming love shown towards humanity.

Like a cosmic jig saw puzzle, this picture is carefully pieced together starting all the way from creation (Legend) to the fall in the garden ("Tree to Tree", "Lost") to the future glorious appearing of the King of all kings, Jesus Christ ("Trumpet Blow").

The album also includes encouraging and uplifting songs which exhort the listener to live as Christ would have us to live until his return. ("Great Wall", "Fantasy", and "Talk to You" to name a few.)

One of the qualities that I most appreciate about Da Truth as an artist is his tendency to push the envelope in his music, often embracing eclectic beats and unconventional chorus'. The song "Great Wall" is a good example of this reality, with it's boisterous and joyful chorus urging us all to break down the walls and differences that divide us. I can't help but want to crank up the volume and be moved with emotion.

Stand out songs include "Lost", "Trumpet Blow", "You Made", "Fantasy", and "Great Wall".

Overall the album does an impressive job of covering such a colossal range of subjects and is a very worthy addition to any hip hop fan's collection.
