R-Swift - Anthem - 8.7 out of 10
Album Summary for R-Swift - Anthem:

R-Swift is back in the building with his third major album release (following Revolutionary Theme Muzik in 2006, and Soapbox in 2008) titled "Anthem."

Overall, "Anthem" is a delicately balanced mixture of both high energy songs as well as some more laid back songs as well. Fans of R-Swift's previous two albums will most likely agree that overall, this latest release is the most laid back of R-Swift's works.

That is not to say that Swift's blazing hot rhyme assaults do not make a bold mark on this project. Songs like "Anthem", "Trap Muzik", "Back Up", and "Awesome" prove that Swift is like a crouching lion ready to strike whenever the opportunity presents itself.

R-Swift demonstrates his more subdued side and proves his versatility as an artist on "The Beginning" - a powerful track with a captivating and slightly ominous beat on which Swift expounds upon the realities of a sin tainted world. A world where sin is present within the human nature even from birth.

In my mind, the stand out tracks on this album include "The Beginning", "No No No", "Trap Muzik", "Back Up", "That Girl", and last, but furthest from least, "Awesome."

"Awesome" does an absolutely incredible job of moving the listeners heart, mind, and soul towards worshipping the God of the universe and his indescribably beautiful son, Jesus Christ. This song will surely go down as being one of my all time favorites.

This album has earned a Silver Medal and is a very highly recommended addition to any hip hop fan's collection.
