It's always a risk to pick up albums from new artists. The chance that it could be a complete letdown or that it could be the best thing since sliced bread is a gamble not many people want to take. Newcomers for King & Country are no doubt a risk but they're one that might have a surprising outcome in their debut full-length album, Crave.

Opening the album is the beautiful piano-rocker "Light it Up." The soft vocals of brothers Joel and Luke compliment the piano with pure elegance. As the momentum builds, it evolves the track from a soft opener into a pumped pop rock song. "The Proof of Your Love" continues the elegant trend with an incredible string section layered throughout the track. While sometimes strings can feel a little overdone, on tracks like "People Change" and "Love's to Blame" they still remain tasteful and the end result is positive overall.

A great feature of this album is the major influence of 80's euro-pop. "Middle of Your Heart" has the appeal of a dance track while also standing as a fist-pumping anthem. As the brothers sing, "So take me to the middle of your heart. Lead me to wherever your love starts," it's a great reminder of the Lord's passionate love for His people. In addition to that, the passion is translated into the music incredibly. However, "Fine Fine Life" is the prime example of well-executed euro-pop with synthesizer and a killer bass line from start to finish. This track might not be one that many will enjoy because of the falsetto in the chorus sounding almost humorous, but I found it to be really unique and it makes the song a standout track.

There are also wonderful ballads that are placed strategically in the album; some involving their relationship with God and others that are relational love songs. Hands down, the songs that lean more toward their relationship with the Lord appeal more to me and seem to be better written and orchestrated. Nevertheless, the title track, "Crave," which combines relational and holy reverence, is probably the greatest track and a magnificent close to the album. As the fellas proclaim, "Hope is what we crave," it very well might inspire listeners to cling more and more to the Savior.

At first listen, I was honestly expecting something unappealing and typical. I was pleasantly surprised and happily repented of my negative predisposition. The brothers have truly offered a well-crafted album in Crave, and have given listeners something fresh to hear. The lyrics have depth, the music has energy and it is balanced wonderfully. If this is how they begin, I will definitely be craving more fine songs in the future from for King & Country. ---Ryan Barbee, Jesusfreakhideout.com

HOPE IS WHAT WE CRAVE | LIVE features nine live performances from for KING & COUNTRY's debut album, Crave, which was named iTunes’ "Breakthrough Christian & Gospel Album of 2012." The set also includes their hit single and Amazon.com’s Christian music "Song of the Year" for 2012, "The Proof Of Your Love." In addition to the CD featuring live audio, the package includes long-form concert footage, their critically-acclaimed music video for "The Proof Of Your Love (The Monologue Remix)" and exclusive behind-the-scenes content from the shoot. --- newreleasetuesday.com

"Live" albums are a tricky affair. Naysayers are quick to point out that they are marketing ploys for record companies to scupper more money from the pockets of fans. "Live" albums do give fans something to hype about while artists buy more time working on their next project. And there is some grain of truth in this: some live albums are nothing more than re-recordings of the artist's studio efforts with the audience clapping sandwiched in between songs. Moreover, the cards fall even farther away from favor when the artist only has one studio album. So, is the live album completely a carbon copy of their studio counterpart with a few augmentations? Before we investigate for King & Country's latest live effort "Hope is What We Crave for: Live," it is prim and proper to say a word about this duo. Joel and Luke Smallbone are siblings born in Australia but moved to Nashville when they were younger. They are also brothers to Contemporary Christian artist Rebecca St. James. Named after the English battle cry "for King and Country," these Aussie brothers are determined to live out Psalm 20:7: "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God." --- Timothy Yap, breathecast.com
