Jump to Conclusions (1985)

Updated: Jan 8

Jump to Conclusions is the fifth studio album by the Christian music husband and wife duo Farrell and Farrell, released in 1985 and their second album on Star Song Records.

Continuing their new wave/techno pop sound from their 1984 album Choices, Jump to Conclusions is once again produced by Bob Farrell and Eddie DeGarmo. The single "People in a Box" became a Top 5 hit on Christian radio. The song is a satirical commentary on television culture. The song "The Meek and the Mighty" was a tribute to the struggling church in Eastern Europe. "American Man" is a patriotic song done in a new wave setting featuring a guitar solo by Dana Key of DeGarmo & Key. On his guitar solo, you'll hear a little bit of "The Star-Spangled Banner" which was composed by Francis Scott Key for whom Dana Key is a direct descendant. The album climbed to number 12 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
