In 2007, Jars of Clay released an impressive modern Christmas record with a classic feel, titled Christmas Songs. As someone who was weaned on the kind of Christmas music my parents grew up on, I’m a sucker for any new Christmas music that even has a hint of what resembles real “Christmas music” to me (plus, I just plain dig Jars). Now, four years later, the guys have released three new recordings: two covers, one original, aptly titled More Christmas Songs. It may not be quite as good as their previous full-length, but anyone who enjoyed that album should like these new additions. Also, the guys take a slightly more acoustic approach here than their recent projects.
