We live in a world where the media floods us with wickedness and perversion.
I go out of my way looking for substitutes to what the World offers. Why?

If we are Believers in the Lord we have to be very careful about what we consume. Both literally and figuratively.

Growing up as a hip-hop head I admit it was very hard divorcing myself from the likes of Mobb Deep, Nas, Wu Tang, Boot Camp etc, but I also realized that I was warring inside.

I loved the beats and the flows of secular rap, but as another writer stated, I began to listen to what was being said. I mean really listen.

How could I condone the violence, the ignorance, the disrespect and other issues that offend my God? I couldn't.

I urge you, the reader, to support Christian music in all its forms. Rap, Rock, Alternative, Praise. Gospel you name it.

I dare you for one week, listen ONLY to Christian Radio and Music.

Then go back and "try" to listen to secular radio and music. Listen to the messages being offered and decide which is more "healthy" for consumption.

Like it's title suggests, the directive of this album is to immerse the listener in a collection of songs that paint a vast picture. As a matter of fact, this album aims to paint the grandest of pictures imaginable: The fall of man and God's redeeming love shown towards humanity.

Like a cosmic jig saw puzzle, this picture is carefully pieced together starting all the way from creation (Legend) to the fall in the garden ("Tree to Tree", "Lost") to the future glorious appearing of the King of all kings, Jesus Christ ("Trumpet Blow").

The album also includes encouraging and uplifting songs which exhort the listener to live as Christ would have us to live until his return. ("Great Wall", "Fantasy", and "Talk to You" to name a few.)

One of the qualities that I most appreciate about Da Truth as an artist is his tendency to push the envelope in his music, often embracing eclectic beats and unconventional chorus'. The song "Great Wall" is a good example of this reality, with it's boistourous and joyful chorus urging us all to break down the walls and differences that divide us. I can't help but want to crank up the volume and be moved with emotion.

Stand out songs include "Lost", "Trumpet Blow", "You Made", "Fantasy", and "Great Wall".

Overall the album does an impressive job of covering such a colossal range of subjects and is a very worthy addition to any hip hop fan's collection. It has earned a 9.0 out of 10 rating from [...] (Christian Hip Hop Review - a site where Christian Hip Hop albums are reviewed and recommended.) which also translates to the album being a Gold Medal Winner.

Here is a detailed breakdown of the album, where each individual song is rated:

1. U Ready? - 8.5/10
2.

I've been a fan of Da T.R.U.T.H. since his first album because he was affiliated with the world's best hip hop group The Cross Movement. Da T.R.U.T.H. has been evolving with each album, which is evident with the creation of "The Big Picture". Da T.R.U.T.H. must truly love the Lord because with his gift, lyrical skills and production quality he could easily rival Jay-Z if he chose to serve the world instead of serving God with his musical ministry. It is obvious he cares more about walking on the streets of gold in Heaven than earning gold albums in album sales. I listen to "The Big Picture" every day and it truly gets my mind, heart and soul along with my body moving.

The album has 15 excellent songs and two interludes by Kirk Franklin (giving Da T.R.U.T.H. reciprocal respect for what he did on "I Like Me", which was featured on 2007's best album "The Fight of My LIfe). I know there are a lot of young people in the church that want to be true Christians, but they're torn between the superficial attractions of the world, which includes secular hip hop by the likes of Lil' Wayne, Jay-Z, etc. but if they gave a listen to Da T.R.U.T.H. they'll realize what the world has to offer cannot compare to what the Lord gives. Don't be fool by the beats of secular music because if you take them away and truly examine the lyrics you'll realize the songs are empty and void without meaning, but if you take away Da T.R.U.T.H.'s musical tracks you'll be left with sermons and testimonies of faith! "The Big Picture" is a gift from God, because not only will it get your head nodding from the beats, but it'll get your mind thinking from the lyrics and get your heart/soul open for what the Lord has for you to do.

I always see 4 and 5 star ratings for Christian music albums. I am not going to sugar coat this review. The three previous albums from Da' T.R.U.T.H. are much better than this one. I'm not saying that there were no good songs on this album at all, neither am I saying this album was pure garbage, but this album had songs that were mediocre, and others that were skip worthy. When I heard the song, "My President", which is reminiscent of the song by Young Jeezy featuring Nas, I felt that this song is not genius in its effort, but actually very corny. Lambert was going through a period of his life during the release of this album that I think took a toll on the full potential that GOD has put in him. I don't blame Da' T.R.U.T.H. as a fallible man for such a horrible album, because we war not against flesh and blood, but against principalities. I blame the enemy and the principalities of the situation that he was going through for hindering him. Da' T.R.U.T.H. can be used by GOD much greater than this. I pray that now that he has come to a point of restoration in his marriage and with GOD that his fifth release at least reaches if not raises the bar already set by Moment of T.R.U.T.H., The Faith and Open Book.
