This is the eighth album from Zo! in five years, and he isn't totally a one-man show anymore. Little Brother's lead emcee Phonte makes a guest appearance. And Virginia-based chanteuse Tiffany Paige add body and curves to a few tracks. The record opens with a surly instrumental version of "Caught up in the Rapture." Between Zo!'s hungry keyboard playing (he's keysman for Gorilla Funk Mob) and the simplicity of his sound, this low-buget production sounds better than most neo-soul records out there.
