If I Left the Zoo is the third full-length studio album of the band Jars of Clay. It was released November 9, 1999 by Essential Records. The band's third album brought about another stylistic shift, away from the lush sound of Much Afraid and into more of a raw and quirky pop/rock sound with occasional folk overtones. Keyboard player Charlie Lowell was featured much more prominently on this album.

Jars Of Clay took a risk with this album, and while its not their best, their experiment has worked for the most part. 1. Goodbye Goodnight. THis is quite a weird song for an intro. 2. Unforgetful You Quite possibly the heaviest (in a relative sense) song that Jars of Clay have ever recorded. This song is a big change from the first song. It's got big drums, an electric guitar solo, Handclaps (which work REALLY well), and a big confident vocal delivery from Dan, far from his vocals in the first song.
If I Left the Zoo is the third full-length studio album of the band Jars of Clay. The name of the recording sessions for If I Left the Zoo was called the Tweed Horse Sessions. Many of the songs that made the final track listing were recorded in raw form during these sessions. However, only "Collide" and "Can't Erase It" appears on The White Elephant Sessions. This album was their second in a row to earn a Grammy Award for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album.

The reason the record works is that the band's songwriting is getting stronger, and Herring has decided to let the music be direct and even a little ragged
