The Eleventh Hour

(Essential) 2002

Jars of Clay started out as a Christian band but before you stick out your tongue, listen to what I have to say. Get rid of that idea of a group of momma's boys singing about God and how great the world is. The Eleventh Hour isn't like that. Sure, you won't hear any trash talkin' but you can get that just about anywhere these days. This might even be a CD you could persuade your 'rents into buying for you cuz it's good music with NO black & white parental advisory sticker slapped on the cover.

Now, about the music. Jars of Clay are finally getting the recognition they deserve as a talented band. My fave tune on The Eleventh Hour is Revolution. It's a funky acoustic-driven track with a '60s keyboard sound much like you'd find on a Smash Mouth disc. The Eleventh Hour blends folk-rock and newer rock with great raspy vocals - think Bryan Adams.

The Eleventh Hour's vibe is feel-good, fresh - the perfect CD to throw on for some chillin' time. It's not super mellow but it's not hard rockin' either. Check it out and what you think. Look where Creed is today (they started out Christian too, ya know!) You'll find Jars of Clay close behind.

Rating:5

Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
