Run Wild, Live Free, Love Strong CD

Creative ambition is fused with rock-solid faith on Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong., the much-anticipated sophomore album from the Christian duo For King & Country.  Bandmates/brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone take a widescreen approach, layering voices and instruments to create a sound that's almost physical in impact.  Echoes of U2, Coldplay, and film composer James Horner can be heard here, applied to a melodic sensibility that favors dynamic swoops and explosive choruses.  Lyric themes of worship, personal empowerment, and gratitude keep the album's accent on the positive.  Fix My Eyes, Long Live, and It's Not Over Yet are soaring anthems of the Spirit-filled life that inspire a shout-along response.  The Smallbones apply this same sense of drama to This Is Love, a romantic ballad with definite crossover appeal.  Matter achieves a special grandeur by celebrating both God's majesty and the value of every individual.  Guest spots by hip-hop artist Andy Mineo (Run Wild) and Luke's wife Courtney (Without You) further enrich this fervent, sonically bold, and altogether outstanding release. - iTunes
