Switchfoot has to be one of my favourite bands. Thier early stuff is definately the best, and considering that you can get all of it in one bumper box, you are going to be one very lucky and happy person. All of the songs convey a very different mood. From the epic "You" to the happy and bubbly "Underwater", Switchfoot takes you on a musical journey that lets you explore all the best parts of both the band themselves and the rocky/alternative nature they bring to thier music. Buy the CDs and never look back!!!!
This is such a good box set to get. It is presented well. I first heard Switchfoot on the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack and later bought the album 'The Beautiful Letdown'. The album made such a good impression on me that I ordered this box set shortly after and have not been dissapointed. Heres a separate review for each album included:
The Legend Of Chin -
This is a great album and a great debut. It's very rock with a few ballads and a small bit of funk. It's a very strong and varied album with standout tracks such as 'Chem 6A', 'Might Have Ben Hur' and 'You'. It's a really good album.
New Way To Be Human -
This one is even better than 'The Legend Of Chin'. From the first track to the last it is a truly cool album. It has some awsome songs like 'New Way To Be Human', 'Incomplete', 'Let That Be Enough' and 'Amy's Songs'. All the songs are brilliant those are just my favourites. This is my favourite album of the three.
Learning To Breathe -
This is the worst of the three albums. It does have some amazing songs though like the original recording of 'Dare You To Move'. Other really good songs are 'You Already Take Me There', 'Love Is A Movement' and 'The Loser'. It's not the best out of the three but it is still an awsome album.
To summarise, this box set is one of the best value boxes I have ever seen. It is presented with all the original CD Booklets and all the CD's have their original disc artwork. I would reccomend this to anyone who has a remote interest in Switchfoot.
WOW I have been a switchfoot fan for years and am still amazed with the stuff they bring out, every album brings out a new fresh sound. Clearly from listening to the early years, it isn't up to the same level as there new albums, but MY GOSH, it doesn;t lack the quality. These songs are beautifully written, and i'm amazed at the talent of this band. New Way To Be Human is probably my favourite of the 3, catchy melody's, catchy lyrics. You won't regret buying this cd, I suggest you get there more recent stuff aswell. Switchfoot just keep getting better, and by the looks of it have no intention on stopping. x3
This is an awesome CD for anyone who likes Switchfoot - amazing sound coming from the three original members. Photos inside are amusing - the bandmembers were so young and had short hair! This band is the best.
