I really like this Cd. "Stars" is awesome, but after you hear it for the 1,000,000th time, it gets old.

The Beautiful Letdown has the MOST songs I like, but NIS has the some of the best songs they've ever made. 'Stars', to me, never gets old (Jon's voice is used to his best in the verses - they don't allow him to sound too sleepy, and he has been accused of sounding sleepy plenty of times before), 'We Are One Tonight' is freakishly catchy, and 'Lonely Nation', 'Politicians', and 'Shadow Proves the Sunshine' are just amazing. A lot of stinker songs, but the good ones really make up for it.
Oh, and I hate 'The Fatal Wound'

Good music, depressing lyrics. TBL was better, but I liked some of the tracks like Stars, Shadow Proves the Sunshine, The Setting Sun, and We are One Tonight. I give it a 9.

I give it a 6.
i completely agree with you only my finger slipped and i gave it a 3 :S

your leg's off!
no it isn't.

i was wondering why frizbees get bigger in midair. then it hit me

what's the similarity bettween a chav and a slinky? they're both pointless but it's fun watching them fall down the stairs.

5, Switchfoot is much better than this CD lets on. Stars is great. Daisy is great. The Blues is great. The rest is forgettable. But, this CD was really a transition period for Switchfoot. They came back hard with Oh! Gravity.

I do like this CD, but I don't love it. It's not their best, and with the direction Switchfoot is taking with Oh! Gravity, Beautiful Letdown will always be the best. There are the standout tracks like Stars, Easier Than Love, and We Are One Tonight. Unfortunately, mediocrity loomed over the rest of the songs, IMO.

Doesn't top TBL, but still pretty good. Top songs are "We Are One Tonight," "Politicians," "Stars."

of fire that burns with sulfur, joining the beast and the false
prophet. There they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever."

I give it a 9. Lots of heart-felt songs and some great rockin' ones. I was just mad that it wouldn't let me put it into iTunes.
