I’ve given the new Switchfoot CD, “Nothing is Sound,” a quick once-through listen. I’d been a little afraid, cause I heard their first single (“Stars”), and it seemed a little bit cliche. But those fears are fading…
Some lyric samples:
Happy is a yuppie word….Blessed is the man who’s lost it all
Sex is industry, the CEO of corporate policy…Skin deep ministry, suburban youth, hail your so called liberty
I pledge allegiance to a country without borders, without politicians…we’re the problem, we’re the politicians
What I loved about “The Beautiful Letdown” was their amazing ability to speak yearning for something more into people’s lives. They seem to me to be about the best I know at painting an intriguing picture for needing Jesus. We’ll see what I like about this new one.
