It's a good album.
Jars of Clay seems to reinvent themselves with every album. That used to annoy me, but I'm sure they were more annoyed by people telling them to go back to the sound from their first album, so I guess everything is fair.
One thing that doesn't change is the fact that they make great music. Set against an 80's style backdrop, The Long Fall covers some familiar themes, but doesn't feel as weighty as their last album, Good Monsters. If you only buy twelve albums this year, The Long Fall Back To Earth would be a good addition to your collection.
And I don't want to ruin any surprises, but we have it on sale right now too.
