He's gotten better over the years, IMO. I've seen them live twice, plus the live in San Diego DVD. The most recent time he sounded a lot better (less pitchy) than the first two.

How does he sound live? Does he sound as good as he does recorded.

I think Charlie Peacock's production of New Way to be Human dates it pretty hard, but a clean remaster without some of the late-90s aesthetic attached to it would make a lot of those songs seem like contemporary B-sides to their newer stuff.

He's closer to the recording now than he used to be. Jump on Youtube and see if you can find anything from the live in San Diego DVD.

Switchfoot is consistently awesome live. I've seen them four times - the first time was nearly ten years ago, the most recent time was last month. Jon's voice has gotten better over the years, both live and on the recordings. His range has definitely improved. Their sound has definitely evolved over the years, but I don't think the change from The Beautiful Letdown (Dare You To Move) to Fading West (Love Alone Is Worth The Fight) is as great as the change over the course of the first few albums.

The first few albums were so different... risky, almost. That's when I really feel like they were cutting edge, doing something other people weren't doing.

I don't feel like they are that way now, but I also still really enjoy their music.

I've been to a few (maybe 4? 5?) of their shows, starting with their first album, most recently Hello Hurricane. They have a really great live show, and Jon Foreman is extremely consistent these days.

He's got a cool voice and his range is impressive.

It's interesting to hear some of you state where you felt the break/change/shift/whatever in their sound was. To me their sound evolved naturally with each release up until "Vice Verses" which felt like an unfortunate and unnatural departure. Their most recent release rides the line between Vice Verses and their previous work, IMHO.

It's strange how some people don't think they changed much and others do...

I've thought it was pretty great even in their old stuff :/

Y'all are picky :P

Hi there. Welcome to CGR! I see that you've already posted things about your band in a couple of other, more appropriate threads. You could also put a link to your band's website/recordings in your signature if you'd like to get the word out more. But let's keep this thread focused on Switchfoot.
