Editors’ Notes

Luke and Joel Smallbone bring a sense of drive and ambition to their band for King & Country. Their debut album Crave may remind listeners of emotive rock acts like Kings of Leon and Snow Patrol. Crave harnesses the fist-raising heroics of such groups in the service of a Christian faith that stresses empathy and redemption over dogmatic sermonizing. The Smallbone brothers deliver their tunes with a palpable urgency over thumping guitar and piano-centered tracks that build to anthemic choruses. “Busted Heart (Hold on to Me),” “Middle of Your Heart” and “Light It Up” are indicative of for King & Country's feel for rock dynamics and positive lyric content. “The Proof of Your Love” stands out for its inspirational message (“Let my love look like You and what You’re made of”) as well as its string-draped musical grandeur. Several tunes — particularly “Pushing on a Pull Door” and “Fine, Fine Life” — are especially effective in capturing God-centered themes in the language of everyday experience. The closing track “Crave” is a powerful statement of spiritual yearning, concluding the album on an exalted note.

Customer Reviews

Jonathan Shelton

Superb debut album from the Christian band For King & Country. All the songs on the album could be singles, especially the outstanding 'Love's To Blame,' 'Busted Heart' & 'Crave.' This is some of the finest song-writing I have heard in a long time. UK, it's time to get behind them...

Amazing

This truly is a exciting Christian album, full of emotions and dramatic tones/power of vocals and music. It makes a change to hear Christian songs sound so modern and upbeat instead of the normal easy listening/choirs (which I also love and am not knocking). Love it and highly recommend it. This is one of those albums friends will hear the catchy tunes and love before even realising it is about God and Christ.

Great Songs

Great songs and excellent vocals and harmonies. Memorable tracks are Busted Heart (Hold on to Me), Middle of your heart, Fine Fine Life. Keep up the good work!
