Very awesome and addicting CD. You could listen to it for hours and never really get tired of it. A lot of the songs have very catchy choruses, for instance, redemption. One of my favorite lines in that song musically and lyrically is the first line of the chorus of redemption. If anyone could describe the symbolism of "24" in the last song that would be great.

An impressive and mature album. This CD is brilliant, pure and simple. There is no way I could give this album less than a 10. The first few songs grab hold of you and every song grows on you as you continue to listen. With this album I have truly come to respect Jon Foreman as a lyricist. Each song is powerful and convicts you. Amazing.

Switchfoot and Chipotle

I hadn't listened to Switchfoot before until I came across this CD. Great stuff.
I like Chipotle too! We don't have it here though.
I ate at one in Chicago. Good food.

Stinking AWESOME CD. Worthy of a 10. Very few are worthy of the 10. This is one. It's amazing. I bought two 10's in ONE DAY! Rock on.

It's not a remix, it's a complete new recording.

I like it and I'll probably like it more and more the more I listen to it. I just felt that after Meant To Live the intensity almost disappeared. The rest of the songs were good, but they weren't as good as some of their other stuff.

This cd is just plain AWESOME!!!! I give it a 10. I saw these guys live at the Agapé music festival and they rocked the stage. Meant to Live is just an awesome song. I constantly have the opening riff stuck in my head.

I first found out about Switchfoot when I was flipping through a CCM magazine back when they first came out. There was an article there about this hot new band, and I recognized the name of an old friend of mine!!! I thought it had to be coincidence, then I saw the brothers name and I knew it wasn't. Jon and I had been best friends back before kindergarten! So I picked up the album just to see how they were and was immediatly impressed. Even though I wasn't that into their style at that point, I thought their musical skill and lyrics were great. I've followed their careers and have watched their style mature and improve, which brings me to this album. This album is awesome!!! Easily the best one they've done so far. The lyrics are very thoughtful and the music is great. This CD gets a "10" from me.

This another great 10-worthy CD. This is an awesome album, you MUST get it if you're into the Christian rock scene.

Having only recently heard Switchfoot, i am new to the band. I came to hear switchfoot through a mate of mine who had this album - on first impressions i thought this album was sick! Whilst some of the song composition was pretty bad (on meant to live for example when jon is singing "we want more than this world has to offer" he goes on to sing this catchy as solo bit, then it suddenly gets interrupted with the chorus-ARRR!) most of it was good, with every song being reasonable. Anyways i have just heard their first album "legend of Chin" and it is sooo much better! Ok, maybe the lyrics are a bit raw, but hey, it actually has decent guitaring!!!! After all, this IS a guitar site..... :P

All in all, id give "Beautiful Letdown" a 7 out of 10.....good, but a bit to poppy for my liking.

this cd was great! loved listening to it and was sad when it was all done. it is easy listening, not as hard as i like it, but hey! many of my friends have bought this cd, not knowing that that is was Christian and loving it (only to find out what it really was- but didn't throw it away-an impovement)

grrrrrrrrreat band for the secular dudes and dudettes
