Switchfoot- The Legend of Chin
Switchfoot has become a fairly popular and mainstream band here recently. They're more popular than Extol and The Residents combined, despite The Residents' 30 plus years of existance (and insistance to release music). This is the first Switchfoot cd and the one that most drastically differs from "The Beautiful Letdown." It's kind of an edgy alternative with some indie influences. Most mainstream fans will probably find this less enjoyable than "The Beautiful Letdown" because of the production. It's kind of crusty feeling, despite the well crafted and performed songs. However, I think that also adds character to the cd. Some standout songs include, "Chem6A", "Underwater", and "Concrete Girl."
