Yes, this is an incredible cd, and you should get it. But you should get Jars' whole catalog, or you'll miss out on the wonderful progression of each release. And get their new one, "The Long Fall Back To Earth" on April 21st!
Jars Of Clay is hands down the best band in Christian Contemporary Music. I've heard and listened to so many Christian songs, and it seems like Jars Of Clay always comes out with amazing songs. Even though they have recorded so many albums since their self titled album, none have been able to surpass their first one ever, and don't get me wrong, all of their other albums are incredible as well.
The best album from the best band in CCM history, "Much Afraid" is up there too, but this one takes the cake. One listen to the lyrics, and you can tell god is truly working through them. "Love Song for a Saviour" is truly perfect. The album, and most of JOC's impressive catalog of hits deals mostly with the age old struggle between the spiritual world and needs and that of the flesh. "Worlds Apart" is one of the best songs I have ever heard, because of it's perfect aproach to the struggles we all face everyday.
