ok, but not really Jan 19, 2006
this cd is not the good old jars of clay that I know. it's kind of weird and its just not them. i really only like "these ordinary days", but the rest are just ok. theyre not as acoustic and doesn't sound jars of clayish.
What happened? Jun 20, 2005
Let me say that first and foremost Jars of Clay is my favorite band and I have been listening to them for nearly a decade. The first three albums were superb, and Who we are Instead is also an excellent album. This album is definately JoC's most bland and cookie cut album. The biggest problem I have with this album is that it's song are of a typical mainstream christian idealism, a category that a lot of contemporary christian artists have unfortunately been emmersed in. Don't get me wrong, songs about God are more than encouraged, I love Worlds Apart, Much afraid, Hymn, and just about any other jars of clay song. But there was a level of uncertainty, passion, and doubt in Jars of Clay's songs. The songs on this album are, like I said earlier, christian cookie cut. There is nothing special about the lyical content of this album. I also have to say that revolution is one of my least favorite jars of clay songs. A song that basically states over and over again, hey, you don't have to conform to the rest of society to become a revolution. Weak lyics, it is very obvious that you need not conform to change stuff, but it stops there, it would also seem obvious that one would be required not to conform to society to be any influence to another person. I'm dissapointed to be writing such a lack luster, whiny review about my favorite band. If you like cookie cutter christian songs, get this album, also be sure to pick up Avalon too.
Polished and Perfect Mar 19, 2005
As another reviewer said, The Eleventh Hour, is Jars of Clay's first polished album. You can tell they really spent time getting this one "perfect" and it is! DISAPPEAR is a great starting song, with electrifying guitar sound. ELEVENTH HOUR is truly a masterpiece, with wonderful lyrics, melody, and very cool keyboard effects. WHATEVER SHE WANTS is their only non-God related song. A very good, darker and louder song that is about a dependent relationship. SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL really is beautiful in itself. The poignant lyrics mirrored the deepest desire of my heart.REVOLUTION talks about how "you don't need to fight or make yourself belong, to be a revolution" with fun lyrics and heavy rock. This album is a different sound than the previous one, like all of Jars of Clay's cds! They each have a different sound. With the Eleventh Hour they decided to go with an arena rock sound, and they succeeded.
Alive and kicking hard Sep 23, 2004
Amazing, my favorite album yet! This most recent Jars of Clay Album is passionate and evocative. Jars of Clay never fails to reinvent themselves, while staying true to their roots. The Eleventh Hour is intellectually captivating and beautifully mixed, a very strong, solid album worth the purchase.
