So you have been recommended Switchfoot right? Or you already have an album, or a couple of songs. I like switchfoot because their songs are loud without being thrash, hard but not pain inducing, strong, meaningful, ambitious, inspiring. Most of all I like them cos they make me smile and make me want to do something. I often find I stand up and walk around at least five times per album. Maybe a psychologist could tell me why. I just love it.
This album is more than fine, more than just ok, as one of the lyrics echoes. I dare you to move has been reproduced in what I would call a studio version of the live version ie a bit more liberties with vocals and drums in places (and a bit more 'stadium rock')
The album contains the kind of soft warm songs that got the band onto Dawsons creek, whilst also powering through with honest anthems. There is enough musical intricacy, vocal harmony and clever/thoughtful lyrics to make sure it can last a few more listens than your average album.
I dare you to not be impressed!
The other reviews will tell you about the songs, I just want you to buy it and let it cheer up many of your days. After all, what else do we listen to music for!<
