Vinyl LP pressing. For a band who took their name from their beloved surfing hobby, Switchfoot is anything but posterboys for the slacker mindset. The San Diego, CA 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. It's 2003 follow-up The Beautiful Letdown finds the band further refining their pop-rock craft with winning results. 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, the band succeeded at making a document reflecting real life with a consistent undercurrent of hope and humility.
