CD Reviews

Grits revamped and reformed....
M.K. | Norfolk, VA | 01/09/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Spending the majority of their career as one of the cornerstone acts on the Christian record label, Gotee Records, they parted ways and went onto Sony BMG with "Reiterate".

The sound is a slight departure from some of their previous works, but it still reps who GRITS are. I kind of miss some of the deep thought processes they would spit on a track. It features Dan Haseltine from Jars of Clay, Annie Peters, former LA Symphony member, Pigeon John, Marc Dickerson, rappers/producers IZ and Pettidee, Christian pop star Britt Nicole (who first worked with them on their "Redemption" CD), Third Day frontman, Mac Powell, Gospel artist & worship star, Martha Munizzi, Gotee president & artist, TobyMac, and new artists Casme, Scientist and Jade Harrell.

Some of the beats and melodies helps you to focus more on the Lord, get your bounce on with its catchy basslines and takes you back to the 1990s with its techno-inspired undertones.

Though, it's not one of 2008's best releases, it helps to welcome back Bonafide and Coffee into the Christian rap spotlight. We missed you guys."
Better than Redemption
pickyslick | Edmonton, AB CANADA | 10/03/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Reiterate is definitely better than the previous Redemption album. Grits seemed to hit the jackpot on a lot of experiments here: from some throwback beats like Something About You to mainstream-type arrangements like Fly Away. There are great mixes of vocals too. Few overused backup vocal arrangements will be I Run & Reminds Me (they start out nice but then get pretty repetitive towards the end). Overall rating: 4/5."
Great group return with a no-so-great album
Lucky Sevens | Tiger Town, Alabama | 02/01/2010
(2 out of 5 stars)

"In 2008, the hip hop duo the Grits returned with a new effort, "Reiterate". This is their first album on their label Revolution Art after parting ways with their longtime label Gotee Records. Lyrically, Bonafide and Coffee are still in top form- it's just the production that's the problem. They haven't worked with Incorporated Elements since 2004, but they did make a great album without them, which is 2006's "Redemption". Most of the production is handled by Mo Henderson with a few done by T-Dogg. There are a few songs on here that will grab you attention, such as "Livin' Dreams", "Something About You" and "Say Goodbye" which features dc Talk frontman (and their former label boss) tobyMac. This album is pretty much the weakest in their catalogue and doesn't hold up well after the first listen."
