Not yet rated | write a review
MUCH AFRAID is an Enhanced CD containing both a full audio program as well as multimedia computer files. Jars Of Clay: Dan Haseltine (vocals, percussion); Matthew Odmark (guitar, mandolin, vocals); Stephen Mason (guitar, bass, vocals); Charlie Lowell (keyboards, piano, organ, vocals). Additional personnel: Kate St. John (English Horn); Greg Wells (bass, drums, percussion); Neil Conti (drums); Nashville strings, London strings. Recorded at The Aquarium, London, England; Secret Sound, Franklin, Tennessee; 16th Avenue Sound, Nashville, Tennessee. MUCH AFRAID won the 1998 Grammy Award for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album. The follow-up to Jars of Clay's almost minimalist first album features a bigger sound, with a wider lyrical scope and a more solid, grownup production (by Steve Lipson, of Sting and Annie Lennox fame). These new developments give MUCH AFRAID a real sense of staying power. The Christian alternative rock group appears to have broken out of the often-narrow confines of the genre. There's a hint of psychedelia on "Overjoyed," some Bee Gees-style harmonizing on "Tea and Sympathy," and lush, '70s rock-esque arrangements throughout. Spirituality plays a more subtle role on MUCH AFRAID, but continues to be a vital theme. On songs like "Overjoyed" it is sometimes difficult to separate the personal from the divine. And that's probably just the way the band wants it.
