I'm sorry!
I had to give this cd a 10. There aren't any weak songs in this whole album (musically or spiritually). People might think I'm biased because I've been an avid fan since the early days of NWTBH, but it's good. I can't wait for The Beautiful Letdown!

Well, as you know, Switchfoot get better and better, and I remember on this site (I think) a while back, people were slagging off this album because it wasn't as rocky as Legend Of Chin....but I have to say...COME ON?!? This album has the best songs written on it, You Already Take Me There, Erosion etc..... all the songs are good and rocky in their own way, but what is better is that Switchfoot have progressed on this album to new and greater plane of songwriting. They have made moving songs which fail to get boring, but do in fact get better and better! The more you listen to this album the more stuff you notice about each song each time, especially as a musician and singer myself, you notice how everything compliments everything else. Basically, one heck of an album. ROCK ON!

christiangrl16 08-23-2002 01:32 PM

this cd rocks!!! I love "I Dare you to move" and "learning to breath" they are on the A WALK TO REMEMBER soundtrack! which also is great!! I give it a "10"!

JarsFreak57 09-12-2002 03:58 PM

this cd is great!its one of my favorites. You can definately tell switchfoot has progressed in their songwriting and how they have matured in their music. This is definately their best cd and i cant wait for beautiful letdown!!

John Clark 10-09-2002 08:08 AM

10. No question. Then again, I'd give all their albums a 9.5 or 10. :D
LTB is one of the few CD's I can put in my CD player and listen to all of it. My dad , sister and I fight over who has what Switchfoot CD. Very soild band!

Andrew 10-10-2002 06:58 PM

i gave it an 8. it is a really great CD, but not a 10.

Fuzz 10-21-2002 10:29 PM

it's an awesome cd!!! The best song is deffinatly I Dare you to move :) -Adam

selfsame singer 12-01-2002 11:01 PM

These guys were cool to there fans. This is by far their best cd, but the others are also awsome. They are a great band.

Muffinly 01-05-2003 08:36 PM

gamaray 01-14-2003 03:27 PM


This cd rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love switchfoot and cant wait for any new cds

Skeeter 01-28-2003 10:17 PM

There is no way this deserves anything less than a 10. Amazing CD with inspired lyrics and tight instrumentation (if that's not a word, it should be).

sealie 02-02-2003 01:48 PM

:angel: :D :klol: :kgrin: :ksmile: :kwink: :kspin: I LOVE THIS CD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I listen to it constantly! If anyone needs to totally zone out and get out of this world, blast some SWITCHFOOT and sing along!!!

Tel 02-11-2003 08:44 PM

This is an awesome CD!
Great lyrics, and great musc. Very thoughtful, but still modivating!

He must become greater; I must become less

MobMan924 02-12-2003 11:37 AM

I Dare You Move most def gets a 10!
I dare you to give it anything any lower!

I am not biased even though I got to eat dinner with the band:D

Rob 03-21-2003 12:59 PM

I gave it an 8. Quality and talent-wise it's a 9.5 or 10. But it could've used another couple harder songs to make me give it a 9 or 10 based on how much I enjoy listening to it.

LB4123 01-02-2004 10:47 PM

This is the greatest CD I own, I can listen to it for hours on end without getting bored! :rofl: everyone should own this CD, weather they have a CD player or not!

I really cannot comprehend why I thought this was unworthy of a 10...

Second greatest CD ever made, in my opinion. I absolutlety adore it, and it deserves a 10. I have no complaints with this CD at all.

twins_fan 07-08-2004 11:23 AM

Quality Album
Switchfoot is a quality band, and this is a good CD. In my somewhat biased opinion, Jon Foreman is one of the two best lyricists in Christian Music today. The other is Reese Roper of Five Iron Frenzy, Brave Saint Saturn, and Roper. I love Dare You to Move, Learning to Breathe, Economy of Mercy, and Erosion, but I don't think there are any weak songs. I gave it a 9.

OneWithTheMud 07-14-2004 09:53 AM

This, in my opinion, is the best Switchfoot CD out there... better than The Beautiful Letdown. I gave it a 10.

Mattlock 10-10-2004 09:46 AM

Wow. Any band would love to make a CD this great. I wish Switchfoot made it big in the mainstream with this CD, it is so much better than The Beautiful Letdown. But this, you won't regret it.

melynda 10-28-2004 09:35 PM

I love the CD!!
I love to the cd alot its the best!I remember seeing Switchfoot at Reds in Edmonton it was awsome,Iloved it,and also Tom the bass player he came to the audience and came to me and he came and grabbed my hand and shook it,aww sweet memorys,Ièm going to go see them in concert again,so I LOVE YOU SWITCHFOOT

hardcorerocker 12-26-2004 08:22 PM

This is a very good CD. But, I have New Way To Be Human, and I prefer that over Learning to Breathe. L2B is good, but I hated the last song, Living is Simple, absolutley hate it, doesn't even sound like Switchfoot. Um..but yea, it's good. I like Dare You To Move, The Loser, good stuff. I found it kind of boring tho. I give it a 8.

Timberwolf 01-30-2005 11:02 PM

I gave it a 10. I like better than the other 3.

coolguy4553 02-13-2005 08:50 PM

i gave it a 10......i really like it......the songs are strong and meaningful...great cd

simple irony 04-24-2005 06:19 PM

Starting from the Beautiful Letdown CD to this I think it was quite good. Living is Simple sort of freaked me out. It didn't remind me of Switchfoot as much as the others did. I actually heard about this CD from Sunday Service when one of our worship leaders introduced Learning To Breathe to the congregation. It was very exciting to hear it was a Switchfoot song. Definetly a 10, regardless Living Is Simple.

DKelly 08-31-2005 11:06 PM

This is classic Switchfoot. I find this CD to be an extremely diverse CD and the lyrics are reveal the highly talented songwriter in Jon. Overall, a great CD to check out if you like rock music that is more original than the typical artist/band out there.

aero! 09-01-2005 09:32 AM

The song 'The Loser' is definitely my themse song for life.

Rjauad 06-18-2006 05:07 PM

Wow....Switchfoot rule! seriously...they have such talent and its so inspiring! Living is Simple is such a tune! Innocence again, Loser and Learning to breathe are amazing!!! tell you what...I love them all.....if I could vote over 10, I would! God Bless! xoxo

ibanez_dude 06-19-2006 08:57 AM

10, definitely. i mean, all of their albums are good, but there is something about this one. a perfect blend of lyrical meaning and flow along with musical diversity and excellence. i love this album. i especially love the "tut, tut, looks like rain" in erosion. it makes me think of winnie the pooh. :D

Purple Girl 06-19-2006 11:53 AM

Most definitely a 10. This is my all time favorite Switchfoot album. *nods*

heisouronlyhope 08-25-2006 11:03 AM


Zboy4God 10-01-2006 11:09 PM

Adam K 03-15-2007 12:51 PM

I give it a 9. Really great, though "Dare You To Move" was kinda weak.

Chem6Afreak 03-16-2007 04:36 PM

Best Switchfoot Album

trudogger 10-30-2007 07:23 PM

I really liked Learning to Breathe, but the whole album didn't seem to fit as a cohesive whole. It had plenty of good songs on it like the title track, 'The Loser,' and 'Erosion,' and pretty much all the rest of the tracks were great as well, but somehow it didn't quite fit with me like NWTBH and TBL did. I like LTB better than TBL but TBL seems more cohesive...I'm not quite sure how else to explain it. NWTBH I think is my favorite Switchfoot album.
