 +R. Berman (Facebook comment): "Indie debut //Beyond Complacency//​ (1993) was guitars-n-drum programming much like Jars of Clay, but two years before Jars' first album. It had a song about //The Hobbit// on it. Their second album, //​Experience//,​ was on Warner Alliance in 1995. It was a major letdown, with standard CCM Adult Contemporary Production that killed their career in the cradle. That album did have a cover of Nanci Griffith'​s "​It'​s a Hard Life," which was a somewhat daring choice for a cover song."

 +==== Beyond Complacency ====

 +1993 Independent

 +"This indie release from Kevin Jackson and Brian Finch, produced by Steve Dady, was like a proto-Jars of Clay, coming two years before Jars' self-titled album. These guys weren'​t in Jars, but they have the same "​acoustic guitars with cool drum programming"​ sound, plus excellent harmonies. Christian themes predominate the lyrics, including one song which summarizes Tolkien'​s book //The Hobbit// by comparing it to a Pilgrim'​s Progress-type spiritual journey. "​Language of Grace" is a gorgeous ballad, and the Christmas/​Easter song "​Southern Sky" takes the listener through some delightfully unexpected key changes.
 +
 +Jackson Finch went on to a single major Christian label album release after this, but it failed to recapture the magic of this debut effort."​ (from [[http://​www.amazon.com/​Beyond-Complacency-Jackson-Finch/​dp/​B000ABVQT8]])
