I gave this album a 10 and I think it's better than any other album released in 2003. The acoustic guitars are great, Dan's voice and lyrics are great, and the whole album is just a great listen. I put it behind Much Afraid and the first one just barely. It's better than the two newer ones.

The two bonus tracks, if you have the 2 cd set, are very good..
Tonite and Shipwrecked are both very good songs.

The album is overall very good, you can hear any particular voice at any time, yet there is a good overall mix too.

The lyrics are insightful, but understandable. The melodies are catchy, the music is tastefully done. I don't think there is a single distorted guitar on the whole album. Thats a nice thing. Its just relaxing to listen to.

After having this album for a long time, I got it the day before it was released, I still think its a great album. Get it. Listen to it. Love it. 9.

No doubt about Jars!
I'm mad about "Sunny Days" and "Jealous Kind". What really makes me happy that those guys continue to stick to the gospel theme, that is why I still love and support this band!!!
By the way, I voted 9.9 because of one song that made my day and encouraged all the "singles"- it's for the "Lonely people".Thanks for that, Jars!

Okay, first off, i give all JOC albums a 10. but i think that they're first album is they're best. though i like the fact that in "who we are instead" they broke away form the monotany of their other four albums and played around with different styles while at the same time retaining they're unique JOC sound.

I gave it a 10, man. I like the way Jars of Clay seems to change they're style in every album, yet is still recognizably the same. It's a WHOLE lot better than anything released lately. It's a shame we don't have another Christian band to rival DC talk yet... *sigh*

Sure I agree with all yer folks out there... Every song on this CD is good, but I suggest listening to it one song at a time. ie., listen to one track, rest a while, then follow up... Somehow I find myself appreciating the album better. Jars Of Clay does a great job on the lyric and music, but the style is too repetitive and boring and unpredictive. You get sick after a while if you listen it through in one sitting...

who we are instead

I think it's a very good record.. There's defenitly a country flair to it.

I love how they have always stayed true, and not sold out. Now a days thats pretty rare.

They did a great job on covering "lonely people" by america.. There has been alot of great songs over the years that have been butchered to death, but not this one..

Great band

I'll give the album a 9
