Switchfoot The Beautiful Letdown 180g LP (Clear with White Smoke Vinyl)
Limited Edition 180g Clear With White Smoke Vinyl!
Remastered by Stan Ricker and Pressed at RTI!
The Beautiful Letdown is the fourth studio album by alternative rock band
Switchfoot. Originally released on February 25, 2003, it launched the band into
the mainstream on the strength of two top 20 singles: "Meant to Live" and "Dare
You to Move."
For a band who took their name from their beloved surfing hobby, Switchfoot are
anything but posterboys for the slacker mindset. The San Diego quartet spent
little time resting on the laurels of their Best Rock Gospel Album Grammy
nomination for 2000's Learning To Breathe, opting for a tireless tour schedule
instead. Their first offering with new label Red Ink finds the band further
refining their pop-rock craft. Switchfoot's music makes no secret at making
musical nods to their contemporaries, most notably Foo Fighters ("Ammunition"),
Third Eye Blind ("Dare You To Move"), and Sugar Ray ("Gone").
With The Beautiful Letdown, Switchfoot succeed at making a document reflecting
on real life with a consistent undercurrent of hope and humility.
"...always melodic and well paced...Switchfoot is very talented." -Johnny
