Switcfoot – Nothing is Sound


Yesterday brought to me the new Switchfoot, Nothing is Sound, and after the first 2 listens, I’m finding it quite enjoyable. For what my opinion is worth, I think this record ranks with The Legend of Chin and New Way to be Human for listenability. Learning to Breathe and Beautiful Letdown were solid but I found that they lacked the musical freedom of the first two. Well, I think Switchfoot have recaptured some of that freewheeling spirit. Lyrically, one could make the case that Jon [again] focused too narrowly on excoriating narcissism. Howsoever, as much or more than any other lyricist in my CD player, he writes about interesting subjects using specific words; specific and interesting enough that I’ll keep on listening.
