Switchfoot rocks!

Switchfoot is my favorite band of all time, and The Beautiful Letdown is their best cd yet!

Talking Never been better

Having been a fan of Switchfoot for a long time, I am absolutely blown away by their new album. I believe it is their most meaningful and musically broad album they've ever done. They're getting a lot of exposure to the secular genres with this album as well (have you noticed that?). I've heard their music on VH1 and MTV, as well as their music video on many different secular websites. What a great way to spread the Word!

This cd is AWESOME!!!!!
I love Switchfoot just heard their song Meant to Live (Best song ever) on the radio and decided to go buy their cd The Beutiful Letdown. Now I'm Hooked I've got all their cds except New Way To Be Human (which I'll be getting soon.)
Can't wait for their dvd Switchfootage Which comes out the 17.

My Favourite songs,

Meant to Live.

I love Switchfoot. They are one of the few Christian bands I can stand listening to, let alone actually enjoy. New Way to be Human, while not a masterpiece by any means, was a good quality alternative CD. It rocked hard, and did it originally. Learning to Breathe stepped things up a notch with phenomenal musical arrangements, and at times, very thoughtful and deep lyrics. Nothing short of amazing. Then we come to The Beautiful Letdown. This album (as lastplacewinner said), unfortunately, lived up to its name. Only without the "beautiful" part. Every track on this album, minus "Meant to Live" and "Dare You to Move," seemed like a severe regression into generic mediocrity for Switchfoot. When an artist needs to borrow from former albums for their debut major-label release, it's probably a good indication of the quality of the album. I am sorely dissapointed in this CD, and I can only pray that they don't make the same mistakes with their next release. I gave it a 3.

I think this cd is great. You have to consider it along with their previous albums to really apreciate it. This album has some of Switchfoot's best songs although as a whole album it doesn't seem to have the flow that previous albums has. It is a very different sound for Switchfoot, but their style is still totaly recognizable. Overall this cd is a wonderful addition to the lineup. Definatly worth every cent.

Cool awesome

i love the beautiful letdown, and every song on it except for gone. i just like that one, i dont love it. when i first heard switchfoot, it was "meant to live" on a secular radio station. when i found out they were a christian band, i was so excited because i knew i could buy their cd!!(im 13 and my parents dont make it easy to buy music i like if its secular)
switchfoot is the BEST christian band i know of, and the beautiful letdown is my favorite cd out of the ones i own (which isnt much, but still...)
all the songs are stuck in my head all day, and i love it! i'd give this album a 10+++!! ROCK ON

grrrrrrrrreat band for the secular dudes and dudettes
Yeah, I know. Same here. My non-Christian friends have listened to it at school and loved it and they are always like,"This album rocks, are they seriously Christian??!" And I'm like,"Yep." So, it's a great witness tool for your fellow peers,also.
