Good Monsters has a raw quality that allows any listener to relate and understand each song, despite the poetic license "Jars of Clay" took in writing this album. The transparency and honesty is refreshing to "Christian" music, but if one is looking for a traditional praise and worship style, you may be disappointed. This is an album with grit and soul, like some classic hymns, or a good blues album, "Jars of Clay" delivers to those interested in authentic living.

What more can a Dove and Grammy-laden band achieve? Jars of Clay is no longer constrained by needing to prove anything. With Good Monsters, they go against the grain with a delightfully unexpected concept album an intricate and masterful mix of styles that fit together in a platinum-bound puzzle. This is not a typical Jars of Clay album, except that it's typically brilliant. It's early yet to be naming this the album of the year, but it will surely be in contention.

All I can say is that this is one of the most incredible rock albums I have ever heard. Seriously, these guys are exceptional lyricists and very creative when it comes to putting together 12 fresh tracks on this disc. Easily one of the most innovative and original rock albums in recent history. Good Monsters isn't just an amazing rock record, it is a record that will confirm Jars of Clay as one of the most important bands around. These guys have something to say and I am more than willing to listen.

When I first got "Good Monsters", I wasn't too sure about it. After having listened to it, however, I thought, "Well, it's not bad". Then I listened to it again, and thought "You know, this is pretty good". And now, of course, I think it's excellent. Musically, tracks 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 11 are my favorites. Lyrically, I really like tracks 3, 4, 5, 7, and 11. Probably 7 ("Oh My God") and 11 ("Light Gives Heat") are my favorites, if I were forced to pick. Overall, an excellent album.
