Product Description


Contemporary Christian music has come a long way toward secular acceptance in recent years thanks to the likes of Switchfoot, who avoid obvious sacred references in their lyrics. It's also refreshing to hear CCM songwriters like Switchfoot's Jonathan Foreman explore love and belonging as song subjects. Unfortunately, The Beautiful Letdown hews too closely to the formula established by alternative CCM brethren Jars of Clay and Creed. Songs like the title track and "More Than Fine" come close to forging their own identity, but too often sound overproduced and designed to appeal to the widest audience. Still, Foreman's songwriting shows potential, and his progressive vision for spiritual themes indicates a willingness to color outside the lines. --Matthew Cooke

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ALBUM! Jan. 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Im not a big fan of Christian music, but i really like this band for some reason. Their music isnt cheesy like some christian bands, the lyrics really speak to you. I LOVE the singers voice. Its unlike any voice i've ever heard before.
1. Meant To Live- the song they released, the song i loved enough to go out and buy the album, awesome guitars riffs, and the lyrics really hit home, how can you not like the song??!
2. This If Your Life- This is my favorite song on here. Its got this electronic beat thing going on in it, The lyrics and the beat of the song just fit so well together. "This is your life, are you who you wanna be?" -the lyrics really make you think
3. More than fine-- Really good beat, the first lyric to the song really grabs your attention "When i wake in the morning, i want to blow into pieces, i want more than just ok."
4. Ammunition-- Wow, i love these lyrics. This song really makes sense, and the guitar riffs and beat are awesome.
5. Dare You To Move-- VERY inspiring song, also another one of my favorites on the album "I dare you to move, i dare you to move yourself, and its just the way he sings it, that it really makes you want to actually get up and move
6. Redemption-- Overall good song, has a catchy beat to it the more you listen to it
7. Beautiful Letdown-- This song is really good, i can totally relate to the lyrics
8. Gone-- This song is very catchy! I love it! The lyrics are great, and it really makes you think. Probably one of the best songs on the album, you'll like it. "Do we know what life is outside of your covient lexus cages?" -good lyric!
9. On Fire-- im pretty sure this song is about praying, more of a softer song, but its really good though, neat lyrics

Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD cuz I couldn't get enough of the first single 'Meant to Live'. This disc will be simply remembered by its anthems with a slow dance near the end. Best track is 24.
Highly recommend buying this disc for anyone's collection!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album isn't a letdown July 18 2004
By Desiree
Format:Audio CD
I got this album yesterday and I love it so much. Switchfoot is one of the best bands. This album is excellent from start to finish. The dvd is equally good and my favorite part is when Jon gives an acoustic performance of "On Fire". I can honestly say that every song is great. Everyone should get this cd/dvd set. It won't let you down. I love Switchfoot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Switchfoot is the best July 18 2004
By Carissa
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to this CD over and over again. If I were to say the CD was okay, I'd be lying. This CD is one of the best I've heard in a long time and if someone doesn't like the music or what it stands for they need to pay closer attention to it. Like I said before, this is one of the best CD's to come out for a long time and perhaps will be for a while longer.
