Switchfoot's "Beautiful Letdown" comes three years after their third independently-released album earning them critical acclaim and a hit single on rock and alternative radio with, "Meant to Live." The Beautiful Letdown has quickly proven to be the bands strongest and fastest selling album to date. 11 songs in all from Red Ink Records.

This is not a BEUATIFUL LETDOWN!!!!!!!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Despte the title, this album was NOT a letdown, but it WAS beautiful. The "Big Three" in terms of best songs are: "Meant to Live" (which is the best song on this album), "Gone", and "Adding to The Noise". Despite the fact that Switchfoot claims not to be Christian, there are some Christian-sounding lyrics such as in Gone, it talks about gaining the world, but losing your soul, which is a statement of Christ and a biblical principle. It opens with the hard, head-bangin' guitar of "Meant to Live", but changes pace a little bit with "This Is Your Life". Then it's kind of a lull until "Gone", and then "Adding to The Noise". The last song, "Twenty-Four" is probably the worst song on this album. I think that albums should have a really up-beat intro on the first song to catch your attention. This, along with all of Kutless' albums, most of dc Talk's albums, and Switchfoot's sophomore album, "New Way To Be Human" have this attribute that is key, in my opinion, to a good album and to finding out whether a band really wants to get your attention or not. Pick up this CD, you will not regret it."
