Sound — 8
The CD Has good sound quality, you can tell it is well recorded. This is a great CD if you like Rock/soft rock music. I really like it, it is a fun CD to listen to, but also the musicians are very skilled.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are very good. If you are a Christian, they can be taken as songs to God, if you aren't, then the lyrics are just fun. Most of the lyrics are good, although "Adding to the Noise" lyrics are kinda stupid. The lyrics go smooth with the music, and the singer is awesome.
Overall Impression — 8
Switchfoot is great if you like Lifehouse, Coldplay, maybe 3 doors down, etc. My personal favorite songs are track 1, "Meant to Live" and track 6 "Redemtion". I love listen to it with friends, we all get in it to it and have fun. I hate the lyrics to "Adding to the Noise". This is a CD that I would buy again if stolen, it rocks, and is great for any rock fan. Also, I am normally more hardcore, but this is a nice relief sometimes.
