About this item

Take this any way you want, but the fact is that Tobymac is pretty much the Justin Timberlake of the Christian pop set. A refugee from a successful boy band, he is jaw-droppingly talented, with a gift for both butt-kickingly funky grooves and irresistible hooks. Like Timberlake, he also knows how to distribute his hooks, doling them out carefully so as to keep your attention focused; he also possesses the admirable ability to work in a wide variety of styles without ever sounding like a panderer or a dilettante. On his third solo album, he opens with the fun and funky "One World," then settles into a pretty neo-soul groove on "Made to Love" before jumping into a rock-ish hip-hop mode on "Boomin'," and then lapsing into straight-up rock & roll on "I'm for You." Every one of those tracks feels perfectly natural -- though he does sound a bit too much like a Sting imitator during the reggae interlude near the end of "Made to Love." "Ignition" and the embarrassingly titled "Feelin' So Fly" both invoke the glory days of '70s soul. Almost everything here rises to an almost amazing level of musical quality and pure pop joy; the only flies in the ointment are the between-song sketches (please, someone pass a law against between-song sketches) and the obligatory track featuring his son, TruDog -- who seems like a genuinely nice and even talented kid, but whose appearances on his dad's records are just too cloying to be enjoyable to anyone outside the family. Highly recommended overall. ~ Rick Anderson, All Music Guide

This CD has music that youngers and olders will identify with. The words to the songs are great and the upbeat tunes will get you "rockin". The CD came on time and the price is what I would have expected.

tobyMac's Greatest Album Yet!!!

Customer review by KrisInWV

5.0 stars by KrisInWV

Looking for upbeat and funky rock music with an uplifting message? Then look no further!!! tobyMac's third studio album "Portable Sounds" presents an impressive blend of funky "soul" music with hits such as "Feelin' So Fly" and "One World." Of course, there's always something for those interested in more fast-paced rock style with "Boomin'" and "I'm For You." If you're a long-time tobyMac fan or a new listener, "Portable Sounds" IS for you!!!
