Great new songs & all-time favorites| Posted August 29, 2008
I can't get enough of "Closer" and I love the sound and vibe of the song. The direction somewhat reminds me of the electronic style Jars used on "Much Afraid" with the songs "Fade To Grey" and "Truce". "Safe To Land" has been speaking to me (like most Jars songs do), and since "Love Song for a Savior" is one of my all-time favorites, both the original and acoustic mix from "Furthermore" are already great and the new version ranks 3rd but is still good. "Flood" didn't need a new mix and it misses the energy and intensity of the original. "Prisoner of Hope" is also good and reminds me of "Light Gives Heat", which I really like. 4 out of 5 stars.
