A Beautiful Piece of Music
Posted August 18, 2009
How old is this album? Six years? Most CDs are lucky if they get remembered a year later, much less listened to. I was just listening to this album yesterday. The Beautiful Letdown made a permanent impression on the genre of rock. I'm sure that the last chords "twenty-four" will be ringing for years more.
This is where Switchfoot really stepped it up musically. Learning to Breathe is great, but this is a different kind of greatness. I can only imagine that the band was completely exhausted after TBL. Creating that much art all at once must hurt.
By far, Switchfoot's best release to date. Goes without saying, for me. It's also one of the best albums, ever. Ever. Really. I don't play.
