“Neon Steeple” is a great name for this record – the mash of aesthetics really serves as a great comparison to Crowder’s mix of guitar folk and electronic pop. Coupled with strong lyrics, sensitive song dynamics and creative hooks, “Neon Steeple” is a great album overall.
Highlights include Southern rock influenced “Lift Your Head Weary Sinner” and the atmospheric, beautifully hymnal track “Come As You Are”. This record would find a great home on contemporary radio if it weren’t so spiritually aware, with Crowder exploring themes of faith, redemption, forgiveness and salvation without reservation.
If you’re looking for a creative and inspiring album, look no further than “Neon Steeple”.
