Rating: 4 Stars
Thirty years ago Fred Hammond founded the hugely popular gospel vocal band Commissioned. Today he brings men’s voices back to the forefront with a quartet of gospel’s most acclaimed male vocalists. A splurge of Hammond-led modern musicality infectiously perpetuates United’s tracks, incorporating electronica, bassdriven R&B and inspirational soul—headed by the quartet’s astounding vocal unity.
