I bought the two and listen to them both, but I like this one better. Great music, jars are top musicians.
Christian Lingner5 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2009Christian LingnerNow going on 15 years since their astounding debut, Jars of Clay returns for the first time since 2006's acclaimed, "Good Monsters" with their tenth project, "The Long Fall Back to Earth." Although some of the songs are lengthy and repetitive, most are positive, mid-tempo tunes sounding similar to Brandon Heath and the vocal style of Phillip Larue. "Two Hands" is probably the catchiest song here, but they are (unsuprising) superior when they dig a little deeper, especially on "Boys (Lesson One)" and the near title track, "Safe to Land." Both hook-landen tracks have an intimacy that only such a mature band can capture. Absolutely brilliant, is the single way I can describe their songwriting, listener relatable and so emotionally expressive, this album is award-winning music in the making. Plenty of others deserve a mention, "Headphones" and the gripping, "Scenic Route" are great examples of this veteran bands' musical abilities. Not many artists can create 14 worth while tunes back to back, that neither get boring or fall into the cliche category. So though the heaviness of some songs may keep this disc from grabbing lots of new fans, at this point in Jars of Clay's career, it's not about topping charts, but making good music. And they have thoroughly succeeded with this one. ~ Christian Lingner
Galen5 Stars Out Of 5June 3, 2009GalenThis CD is very, very, very (did I mention very?) GOOD. There are more special sound effects that in earlier records, but it is as good as anything they've done before. 'Two Hands' and 'Boys (Lesson 1)' are by far the best tracks. There is also a really nice insturmental introduction to the CD. All in all, I give it 6 out of 5. :)
Patty G5 Stars Out Of 5June 2, 2009Patty GFor the longest time, THE ELEVENTH HOUR was my favorite JARS OF CLAY CD...but this new one...WOW! Fantastic writing, creative instrumentation! My favorites tunes are HEADPHONES and DON'T STOP. Can't wait to introduce it to all my friends. We're Catholic and so much Christian music is just too cheesy and transparent to us. Yeah for you boys on stepping outside of the box!
Carlton Lopez3 Stars Out Of 5May 16, 2009Carlton LopezGood music but a little light. This one sounds like it would be liked most by teens and to me it was a little different from what I have heard from them.
