BUT IF SUIT COULDN'T PRODUCE SOMETHING that could come close to 'Lose Yourself', Sweat's opening track, 'Heart of Champion', nearly gets there. That is, until the NBA on NBC theme awkwardly comes in as the anchor to the chorus. Aside from John Tesh, the Lincoln University Vocal Ensemble offers their talent on the track making it even more overblown than its sports-metaphor lyrics might suggest. It wavers, predictably, on that delicate precipice between brilliant and unutterably horrible. And that's actually where much of Sweat falls.
