Switchfoot: the best yet
Wow. What else can you say about an album that comes out of the gate with one smash hit after another. Listening to Meant to Live, Dare You To Move, Stars, Oh! Gravity and others puts an exclamation point on just how big of an impact Switchfoot has made on the music scene in a relatively short period of time (although the artwork inside the CD jacket reminds us that Switchfoot languished for years as a minor Christian alternative band prior to the Meant to Live tsunami). If there is a tinge of disappointment here it’s in the omission of some of their early “hits” such as New Way To Be Human which would give newer fans a better feel for the band’s roots.
