Switchfoot – Revised


Regarding Switchfoot, I have to retract my earlier statement about Jon’s focus on narcissism in Nothing is Sound. The record contains ample excoriation of narcissism — as did The Beautiful Letdown — however there are other and new themes with a strong presence. Most notably, the world-weariness of The Blues, The Setting Sun, and Politicians. These songs remind us that we all get tired more or less often, and they provide reassurance that justice will prevail in the end.
