Crave, as a whole is nothing short of brilliant…This is the can’t-miss album of the year.” – ChristianMusicZine.com

But, in a way, even such flattering comparisons are unfair to for KING & COUNTRY….the brothers songs are truly gripping, almost like vignettes about their own lives.” – MTV’s Ourstage
