I still like Much Afraid better. But this is my second favorite album in the world.

Hmm... where is the one for Redemption Songs?

Like it. Better than the debut, much better than 11th Hour, MUCH better than REdemption Songs, the only one that's better is Much Afraid. Why? I like every song on Much Afraid. I don't like every song on this one.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

I believe this to be the greatest Jars Album yet. The emotion is so true... especially in Oh My God, and the spiritual aspects have never been greater.

i aplaud jars for their amazing performance once again!

I really enjoyed this album. It's honest and powerful messages, especially the one that is my favorite track "Dead Man".

I only own the first two and this new one. I quit listening to them shortly after Much Afraid came out so I've only heard a handful of the songs they released. This new album is incredible. I have listened to constantly since buying it from iTunes.

i love the good monsters cd! my mom got it for her b-day, and i have been listening to it ever since! Dead man (Carry me) is by fare the best song (in my opinion). somehow, my aunt told me, that she was related to one of the members, back when the band was getting its roots.

I got this back when it pretty much came out. And until Christmas, it was the CD in my player.. I ended up on Track 11 "Mirrors and Smoke".. a lot.. I just love that Track, I actually can, say, this is a definative album.. I love it.. simply.. Love it.. "Dead Man (Carry Me)", is a good song, but is being overplayed.. I also love.. 5 "There Is A River" . Just reminds me, that no matter the past, I'm a new creation through Christ.. totally love this Album.

I very much like this album.

Oh My God is one of my top favorite songs now, as high as Worlds Apart, even.

I really like the title track too, it makes me feel happy.
