â€œCarolina Freeâ€ is a touching song, ensuring that all that listen in to Michael Anthony Miltonâ€™s â€œFollow Your Callâ€ will focus in for the long haul. Nothing more is needed than a sincere set of vocals and a guitar for Milton to spread his message, while the added elements (Drums during â€œCarolina Freeâ€ only make this message more palatable. The slower tempo of â€œStill My Little Childâ€ is perfect, allowing Milton to imbue the track with special meaning.
Despite the fact that Miltonâ€™s vocal harmonies work perfectly with the track, there is something more important that listeners need to see with the song. The message put forth by Milton is the crux of the track, and why individuals will continue on with â€œFollow Your Callâ€. Milton puts forth this vocal-focused effort in a period when most music does not have anything in the way of a message: while jarring to some that are inculcated into what is popular, Miltonâ€™s style will likely cause listeners to reevaulate their life. The tracks on â€œFollow Your Callâ€ are cohesive, allowing listeners to effortlessly go between â€œOnly The Wordâ€, â€œGenealogyâ€, and â€œNo Response At Allâ€.
The instrumental arrangements on each of the tracks on â€œFollow Your Callâ€ may be different, moving from bluegrass, rock, country, and countless other genres, but the message is constant and constantly strong. A number of Christian artists may have lost their path through focusing more on the music and the overall package, but Michael Anthony Milton is honest, is earnest, and should be the musician that one touches upon when they want someone to seriously contemplate Christianity. Note, however, that tracks like â€œChapel On The Prairieâ€ and â€œCattle On A Thousand Hillsâ€ can be taken in a purely message-free context and are equally catchy: I found myself singing along with the latter well after the disc ended. â€œFollow Your Callâ€ is a must buy for anyone that is looking to tune in further to the Christian faith, be they believer or individual looking for more information. Make it a point to pick up this disc and any subsequent releases that Milton may cut in the following years. Also, see when Miltonâ€™s next live dates are scheduled: I believe that the message present in these songs will only be stronger in the live context.
