I, Tim Malabuyo, the author of this site, whole-heartedly endorse and recommend the Jars of Clay album, Redemption Songs. Yeah, I know it’s been out a while, but we only got our copy recently when Chesney won a call-in on Air1 (again). All but a few songs on the album have gotten 4 or 5 stars in my iTunes. Jars of Clay doesn’t “ruin” the hymns (for me) by taking away from the message of the hymn by creating an over-rocked, barely recognizable version of the song, but rather applies their recognizable magic of mellow, soul-ish style. Dan Haseltine singing hymns, man!
