The Beautiful Letdown
2003
Switchfoot’s “the beautiful letdown” (Columbia Records, 2003) arrived on the heels of 3 critically acclaimed indie releases over the past 7 years, and has quickly proven itself to be the band’s strongest album yet, earning them a hit single at rock and alternative radio with “Meant To Live,” record sales have eclipsed 2 million in the US, and sold out shows all across the country.

A New Way to Be Human
1999
Introspective, probing lyrics define Switchfoot's sophomore effort, New Way to Be Human, which Charlie Peacock produced for his re: think label. Alternative pop/rock songs like "Incomplete," "Under the Floor" and "Let that Be Enough" (all of which were written or co-written by Switchfoot singer/guitarist Jonathan Foreman) deal with trying to find meaning and purpose in life -- the lyrics really stem from Foreman's introspection and self-examination. One of the best songs on the album is "Company Car," which questions materialism and is almost Hindu-ish in its outlook. Not perfect but intelligent and generally appealing, New Way to Be Human is an album that fans of 1990s' alternative rock can appreciate. Alex Henderson-Barnesandnoble.com

Learning to Breathe
2000
On their two prior albums, San Diego alterna-rock trio Switchfoot made a name for themselves with solid songcraft and a straightforward rock-'n'-roll sentiment. Learning to Breathe continues in that vein, using strong lyrics and melodic hooks to create its uniquely accessible sound.

The Legend of Chin
1997
Switchfoot's debut album. After just 20 shows, they signed onto the re:think label and recorded these songs in three weeks. As Jon Foreman himself says, "These were songs that were written in my freshman dorm-room. These are the songs of a nineteen year old kid who has nothing to prove and nothing to lose." This album provides a fascinating look at where Switchfoot came from and -in Tim Foreman's words-"an honest collection of San Diego rock".  Chelsea (Me)-sfDb
