I'm glad to hear people giving this album the credit it deserves. It's amazing how this band has transformed into such mature, intelligent songwriters. Probably the best come back from any rock band in quite some time.
1. Blizzard of '77- A very original acoustic guitar which i thought was done on an alternate tuning but later found out wasn't, is the only instrument on this track. A great song. 8/10
2. Happy Kid- Two upbeat strummed guitars kick off this 80s influenced song with vocals similar to Semisonic. A strong melody all the way through and just a delight on the ears. 7/10
3. Inside Of Love- Beautifully strummed guitars which bring Travis to mind really let the lyrics shine over this great melody and leaves a powerful impression. This is pure emotional songwriting at its finest. 10/10
4. Fruit Fly- Don't be turned off by this song's strange opening because what follows is quite amazing. An emotionally charged tune that showcases absolutely wonderful and beautiful vocals. 10/10
5. Blonde On Blonde- People say this is Bob Dylan influenced? Maybe I've been listening to alot of Dylan that no one else is listening to.. never the less, this slow, spacey tune has a great chorus and a soothing verse. 7/10
6. Hi-Speed Soul- New Order influenced song with more catchy vocals and great hooks. This one also brings to mind the Semisonic singer in spots. 7/10
7.No Quick Fix- A pretty good midtempo song. 6/10
8. The Way You Wear Your Head- A retro groove with kind of a 70s punky feel. Not one of my favorites but pretty good. 6/10
9. Neither Heaven or Space- Another acoustic ballad which sounds a bit U2 influenced and features a nice, subtle melody. 6/10
10.

Again, Nada Surf has put out an inspiring, smooth sounding , and mellow album, for which is in constant rotation in my cd player (in home, car, and mp3 player).

I never thought Nada Surf got its fair share of credit for there first cd High/Low. There label, Elektra was a major part of their demise. Unlike most people on this review, I loved the song Popular. It really turned me onto rock. It was different, the way it had talking, then got loud yelling and hit right into the chours. It really made a point though, at least to me. I rushed, and bought the first album, and have been hooked ever since to Nada Surf. The Proximeity Effect did not get its credit either. It as a nice follow up, but apparently didnt have the 'hit' single the big shots wanted after there big success on MTV with Popular.

I'm rambling...All in all, Let Go is an incredible cd, and delivers in all facets. I cant wait for more from my favorite rock group.

I only wish they could, bring back an album with the same rage, and raw lyrics that the song Popular brought. Maybe we can all expirence Popular part 2 in the near future!! I hope and know they can bring out another smash hit in the U.S.A. like Popular was!

It's been a long and weird ride for the boys from Brooklyn. "Popular" dropped them onto heavy rotation on MTV, creating a ready-made backlash that left them, ironically, somewhat unpopular. In fact they couldn't even get their record company to release their second album. Thankfully however it appears that they're getting the last laugh, as "Let Go" finished high on many critics end-of-year picks, and high/low is gaining recognition as the great lost indie rock album of the mid-nineties.
With "Let Go" however we find a more world-weary 'Surf, whose anger has been dulled by cynicism. I guess this is growing up, mind you, with the treatment they've had from the industry, a little cynicism is more than expected...
The band explore a new sound on this album, with mixed results. Gone is the fuzzy guitar and experimentalism that made the first two albums so exciting, but in comes an added emotional depth to the songwriting and lyrics, a willingness to vent more personal issues than the rage and righteousness exemplified on their earlier albums. This results in some of their best stuff ever - "Blizzard of '77" and "La pour ca", which showcases their French roots, are definitely up there with their best material, however, a tendency for the band to overindulge in ballads is not as welcome. As a case in point, "Inside Of Love" is absolutely terrible. It sounds too much like modern period "Travis", all gently strummed guitars and mawkishly overemotional lyrics. Predictable chord changes and a rock-steady beat are all designed induce a lighter-raising frenzy, however they induce a "Skip" frenzy in this listener.

Nada Surf was dropped from their label after writing the Proximity Effect, with their label claiming that there was no "hit" track on the album. Although there was no "Popular" this album, it was a gigantic step foward that few bands take after being exposed by the MTV phenomenon. "Let Go" is yet another leap foward for a band that has the musical potential to be one of the greats. From the moving, acoustic opening track of "The Blizzard of '77", to the drifting nuances of "Paper Boats" to conclude the album, Nada Surf do something rarely seen today: write a beautiful free flowing ALBUM (not just tracks tacked carelessly together). Standouts are the stunning ballad "Inside of Love", the rollicking "High Speed Soul", the mind blowing "Killian's Red" and the hook laden "Treading Water". In today's musical day and age, it makes unfortunate sense that this band is still reletively unknown (although they apparently have a fairly large following in Europe). But give them just a bit more time and they will undeniably break out. They are fantastically talented. If you like good songwriting in your rock music, buy this album!
