well...

amazing stuff. the first time u listen to it, listen to it in reverse order... it seems like the best songs are near the end... some songs just dont have it... most do. most certainly do. very very good stuff. a more mature sound for switchfoot, which i think is a good thing.

"Gone" sounds like what the newboys should have done in their new cd's. it just plain rox.

and dare u to move is on this cd too... it's been around a while now... but it's still one of my favs. i didn't put it in my list tho. track 5.

best songs :

(track 1) : meant to live
(track 11) : twenty four
(track 8) : gone
(track 10) : adding to the noise
(track 9) : on fire

the others are good too, these are just my favourites.

worth listening to before u buy to make sure u like the new stuff, and then go get it! support switchfoot!

i gave it a nine.
it deserves a 10, but i'm reserving the 10 for their next cd

i disagree, if you like switchfoot, you should just get it, whether you have heard it or not.
it's that good.
my fav's are meant to live, this is your life, ammunition, gone, on fire, etc.

I gave it a 9, but it's more of a 9.5 . Great CD. You can see how much they have matured from their first CD. Worth every penny as far as I'm concerned. I can't say I have a favorite song just yet, the whole CD is that good. It's a great addition to our Switchfoot library. Go out and buy it....NOW!

And, in the liner notes, Jon has a cool hat on.

This is the best cd Switchfoot has ever made. It's brilliant. I loved both New Way To Be Human and Learning To Breathe (haven't heard Legend of Chin), but this album is even better. I can't stop listening to it. It's fantastic.

I gave it a 9...

Switchfoot is my favorite band and has been for a long long time. This a great cd, but it had to grow on me a little, unlike Learning to Breathe and The Legend of Chin (which will always be close to my heart ::sniff sniff:: )
They are definately continuing to evolve their sound on this album, which is awesome...can't wait for the next. We need to continue to support Switchfoot by getting the word out...Foot Soldiers, unite!!!

Great CD!

This CD is truly awesome. It's different from their other CD's. But still great. 24 is my new all time favorite songs. I think somebody needs to tab that sucker.
This CD has more variety than the others. You can tell a big difference between 24 and Gone.

I had a question. On an alternative station they were talking about a "new" band called Switchfoot. Did somebody steal their name or are they going secular mainstream? Anybody know?

Switchfoot is still on the Sparrow label, but they also co-signed with Columbia Records for the new album. Since Columbia is a mainstream label, Switchfoot is being promoted on secular stations as a new band.

I voted this CD a 10, probably one of maybe five CD's in the past few years that I would vote a 10.

This CD is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it.

The only song that I don't like that much is the title song. But it's still a decent song. All the other ones are sure-fire classics.

My favorites:

This Is Your Life
24
Ammunition


and on and on.
