As much as I want to give it a 10, I just can't bring myself to do it. Good Monsters deserved a 10, and I would have to put this CD just below Good Monsters. Still, it's a really good album, definitely worth picking up if you haven't already.

8. Super good album. This album got me listening to Jars of Clay - I never really liked them before but this cd is really great.

8/10. Even though it's the only Jars Of Clay album I like, it's quite good. There's tons of extremely catchy songs.

10/10 - Let me premise this review by saying I have all thier cds and have seen them live about 10 times...they are my favorite band. Long Fall Back to Earth is a GREAT cd. It sounds like them, but with a little reinvention. As always, the lyrics are super, as well as the guitars. The addition or increased electronica is a nice change. I must admit, I prefer thier music when there is an obvous presence of electric guitar and synthesizer...so this cd really hits the spot for me.

I've had it since its release, but just finally started really listening. It's no 10/10. But it is pretty good.
