Item Description...
Multi-platinum and triple Grammy winning band Jars of Clay have long held a reputation for creative excellence. With their latest record Good Monsters, the band continues to create music that stretches the imagination and offers a new perspective on who we are as a church today. Dan Haseltine explains,

?I was not sure how all of the experiences of the last few years would translate into music. There have been so many things to look at and describe. This record is part confessional, part euphoric love poem, part bitter divorce, and part benediction. It was born out of many experiences and conversations between addicts, failures, lovers, loners, believers, and beggars. And so the language of recovery and the honest discourse about our attempts to live apart from God and apart from each other is a theme. Engaging people who are doing the hard work of laying their lives open to others, and avoiding isolation, has allowed me to see that there is both immeasurable evil and unfathomable good mixing under my own skin and it is grace, mercy and freedom that allow me to not simply be a monster, but to be a good monster

Another fantastic Jars of Clay CD  Mar 23, 2007
I had only heard Dead Man on the radio and wasn't sure what to expect from the rest of the CD, but it's quickly become one of my favorites. The Jars are so incredibly talented and inspirational, too. This one will appeal to younger (teenage) listeners too, since it's got a rocker kind of edge to a lot of the songs.
Great Christian Music  Mar 8, 2007
I received this CD as a gift and loved it so much, I bought one for my brother and one for my sister.
Great Cd  Mar 8, 2007
This whole cd is really good. You can get so much spiritually out of this cd. It is worth every penny.
Good Monsters  Feb 24, 2007
When listening to Jars of Clay's first track off of their Good Monsters album, you could tell this was going to be different from other albums but strangely the same as well. Jars has stepped away from the acoustic mellow feel from their previous two albums, Who We Are Instead and Redemption Songs. They have released their creativity and musicianship into a feel good rock album with introspective lyrics. Work, the first track, is a driving rock song that is great to kick off the cd. The song has been featured as the backing promo for the Fox TV medical series House.
The meatier and hard hitting song on this album has to be Oh My God. This song starts off with only a guitar and Dan's voice singing as if he was having a chat with God. It deals with frustrations and utilizes the phrase some of us use, Oh My God. This song nicely begins to crescendo as the backing vocals repeat Oh MY God with Dan's voice revealing more desperation and frustration with trying to understand things not in our control. This song has you thinking, "Is this what God hears when people are constantly asking him for help, Oh My God"... Truly a powerful song.
Mirrors and Smoke is a playful look at love and has Johnny and June Carter Cash feel to it. Other standout tracks are Even Angels Cry , Light Gives Heat, Dead Man (Carry Me) and Good Monsters. Good Monsters reflects on how we all are good monsters, ("Not all monsters are bad, but the ones who are good
Never do what they could, never do what they could") A look at how by not taking actions against the monsters that are bad, we in turn good monsters that never acted out on our good intentions. This song has deep lyrics with a song that doesn't' beat the message out of you but rather use a catchy pop sound.
Jars of Clay have managed to take a different direction sonically on this album, yet keeps the insightful lyrics that challenge listeners, Christian or otherwise (don't like the fact that they are labeled a Christian band). The album is for those wishing to listen to the music with an open mind for its musicianship, production, and lyrical quality.
Jars of Clay continues to rock   Feb 23, 2007
Good Monsters may have to grow on some classic jars fans...but it is still a great album. It's got a little more rock than your used to, but the band always finds a way to change their style without sacrificing anything. "Work" stands out as a great opener and "Dead Man" is a good single. I'm always more interested in the "B" sides of an album. "All my Tears" and "There is a River" do not dissappoint in this category. If you are a Jars fan buy the album...if not buy the album.
