8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By The Delite Rancher VINE VOICE on May 25, 2005
Format: Audio CD
"Illumination" is one of the most underrated hip-hop albums. Almost every song is highly compelling. The arrangements are creative and fresh as the artistic integrity is high. Most songs have a jazzy feel, either by using old jazz samples or the creation of original music. In fact, most of the music sounds like it was played by actual musicans with real instruments -something which can be rare in the genre's typically processed soundscape. This aspect will appeal to those who enjoy music by performers/groups such as Us3, Guru and the Roots. The disc even has a few jazz meets poetry tracks. Sup the Chemist has a great singing and rapping voice. His vocal style is surprisingly clean with regards to articulation and pronunciation. As with most rap music from the time period, the song themes revolve around urban authenticity. 'The Vibe' and 'Phat' are the two tracks that will run through your mind hours after the stereo has been turned off. I was surprised to eventually find out that this is a 'Christian Rap' album. The primary evidence for this is track eight, which is the only 'preachy' song. If you're like me (and not a Christian), I recommend that you not let religious orientation interfere with your enjoyment of SFC (Soldiers For Christ). While it is a tragedy that this album is currently out-of-print, you could pick up a few used copies for under five bucks at the time of review. Give this unappreciated gem a try!

Thoughtful, creative, hip-hop that deserved a wider audience, all the SFC discs are hard-to-find. Others are "Listen Up", "Phase 3", and the awesome "Saved Man in the Jungle".

More than just Christian rap, the albums are just plain great hip-hop!

This album is smart, sophisticated, and delightful to listen to... The lyricism of Sup is some of the best in all of rap. He is true to the original roots of rap. If you love the Guru or United Future Organization, you will really enjoy this album. It is an amazing mix of jazz, spoken word, and poetry.
