3x GRAMMY-nominated genre-defying artist Crowder released his latest album Milk and Honey last Friday. Milk & Honey features hip hop artist Hulvey and multiple collaborations with Maverick City Music, a diverse collective of powerhouse songwriters and worship leaders. The twelve tracks share a message of hope, promise and purpose in a way that revolutionizes worship music to reach audiences across all cultures. Critics have been raving about the album. Here are some intial reactions to the album:
""This album is a celebration of the future we are marching towards together and a prayer that each of us can live in this promise in the here and now." --CCM Magazine
"His newest project, Milk & Honey, comes fully-loaded with Crowder's signature southern-tinged style of worship, smothered in solid theology and offering enough of a diversity in sound to keep every listener intrigued beginning to end." -- Worship Leader
"And that's been Crowder's strongest artistic muscle all these years: the ability to mix and match eras and genres into a musical stew that is all his own. Add to this his tunefulness and passion for bringing creativity to worshiping the Lord, and it's easy to say, "here's to a few more decades!" Milk & Honey may not be groundbreaking next to Crowder's own impressive musical history, but it is no less welcome a return." -- Jesus Freak Hideout
"With his beard and his rugged "hypie" looks, it's easy to stereotype Crowder as one of those rock-edged worship artists who likes to revved-up his guitar for some loud stadium-rocking music. But looks can be deceiving and outward appearances can often domesticate the true talents of an artist. Sure, Crowder does indulge us with some smokin' rock tunes, but this album shows he is capable of so much more. From ruminative power ballads to 60s-esque rock n' roll to electronic rock to old-soul Gospel, Milk and Honey is Crowder's most diverse and best album to date." -- Jubileecast
