In the constant battle of style vs. substance, John Reuben has always managed to provide listeners with both over the course of his 10-year music career—a remarkable feat in the often superficial world of hip-hop. But on Word of Mouth, there’s something strikingly different from the outset as the Columbus, Ohio, native noticeably takes his artistry to new levels with better take-away value lyrically and a far fresher sound.

While some of his past work—even 2005’s The Boy vs. the Cynic—felt a little dated and was far too light-hearted to truly be taken seriously, Reuben tackles the struggles of everyday life with panache, particularly on the opening track “Sing it Like You Mean It,” a pertinent summons to pursue the calling God has for your life.

Forgoing the preachiness and pretense that Christian hip-hop is sometimes criticized for, lyrically, Reuben spins one creative yarn after another throughout Word of Mouth. The wordplay proves most impressive on “Make Money” and “Universal,” two timely tracks that’ll surely stick with listeners for the long haul. Much like The Black Eyed Peas, Beck and tobyMac, Reuben smartly serves up his hip-hop with a healthy dose of rock and pop sensibilities, something that plays out particularly well on the laid-back groove of “Miserable Exaggeration” and the insanely catchy title track.

With 10 songs as clever as these, it shouldn’t take long for Word of Mouth to get out, allowing more of Reuben’s redemptive rhymes to be experienced by the masses (just as they should be).

    i give this cd half a star cuz he has a unique style and flow, but the messages are like confusing, i have no idea what he is talking about half the time..... I didnt hear one song that is clearly mentioning a message about God, there is much better Christian artists out there... go support them, may God exalt those who will lift up his name.. and these artists who are using the spotlight to talk about other stuff, why do you support them? then we have these so called "Christian" concerts with these artists with lukewarm lyrics, and wonder why the youth are not on fire for God.. get some fire anointed rappers like Lecrae, or 116 clique, and put them out there in your shows, look at the heart of the message, with beats that the youth like

    I think this is John Reuben's best so far.This album has rock, pop, hip-hop, spoken word and all the tunes are really catchy. The songs also have lyrics that will actually make you think about certain topics differently. But if you are someone who doesn't pay attention to lyrics and you only want the beats, "Word of Mouth" has got it. This cd is intersting and fun to listen to.
