really i don't like this one.

i think Jars tried to go a bit too far from their original sound. i liked the acoustic rock sound of the first cd but this one doesn't have that sound at all.

There are very few songs on here that i like. Colide and Unforgetful you are really the only ones i like.

that's too bad

I unfortunately, respectfully, of course disagree with you. The main reason why is that often whenever a band switches their style of music it is either frowned upon or praised, and really I can't see it either way. I love this band, and the talent is rearlly what matters to me as far as how good a band is, not if they've apparently, according to many people 'sold out' to popular music. Diversity is an important aspect of music, even within a single band I believe it is very important. They still have acoustic, only it's less mellow of a sound, not necessarily more rockish/poppish. Anyways, very good cd, i bhink; i like goodbye goodnight, no one loves me like you, collide, river constantine my favorite is river constantine on this cd.

I gave it a 5, it's just really not my style. I kinda like "Unforgetful You" and "Sad Clowns", and it's a good listen once in a while, but not exactly a regular in my CD player.

I am probably one of the biggest Jars of Clay fans you will ever meet. I gave this one an 8. I am the type of guy that would give them all tens, except on this album. I, of course, loved the album, but it is my least favorite of theirs to date.

I do like No One Loves Me Like You, and River Constantine

It's a good cd, with a couple semi-energetic rhythms. Their first cd was way better though. Soothes your ears after P.O.D.

Thumbs down

I think this CD stunk! They are certainly trying something new. It has a more raw sound than before. It is somehow depressing and it did not seem to fit them.

it's really good, and not as depressing as their first too. (that's the only way i can descibe it)
really interesting composure.

It is a pretty good cd, but not the best of Jars.

EDIT: I would now bump up my rating from a 7 to an 8.5. This has grown on me to become my favorite Jars of Clay album. Very solid.

I personally loved the CD, but I like anything by Jars of Clay.

Favorite songs: Famous Last Words, No One Loves Me Like You, Hand, and Collide, and Unforgetful You. Actually, I LOVE THEM ALL!

Thumbs up awesome!!

I don't know what you guys are talking about. This CD is the very best Jars of Clay has ever done. The first was good and the 2nd was ok. 11th hour sucked royally, but this Cd brings me so much content. This is a good new sound and it really hits me. Sad clown describes me so much and the other songs speak to me so much. I think this CD deserves an 11 out of 10. but thats just me.
