The Beautiful Letdown

Nothing Is Sound
Switchfoot 4 1/2 stars for a pretty good CD!! Not the best, still like Oh! Gravity. way more :D
Like many other people, I do feel that the songs are "depressing" but at the end Jon gives the message that lets you...

If I ever come around with a person who never heard of Switchfoot, I would highly recommend this Album (other than The Best Yet).
All well written songs, I personally love the lyrics of "Twenty-Four", it's really honest and a lot of emotion in Jon's voice. Though this CD is packed with Switchfoot's hits like "Dare You to Move", "Gone", and "Meant to Live", the track that really sticked to me was "More Than Fine". It has a happy light hearted rock beat that makes your day.
"On Fire" is too one of my favorites, the thoughtful lyrics have a a way to grab you, it's those that make you cry.
In a world of copycat music and depressing lyrics, Switchfoot has released an original and outstanding Album that's worth your time and money.

This record is CRUNKTASTIC!
Although I'm not really a dancing breakdance kind of person, I did enjoy it. The CD has all 3 F's; funky, fun, and fresh! However, without "I Love You To Death", "Never Let Me Go", "Love Addict", and "Replace Me" this Album wouldn't be half as good.
Unique style, obviously, I mean who wears nail painted Hulk hands?! Only them..HA xD It's music that you would want to listen for fun, like a party. It's worth buying, I'll tell you that, specially since it comes with a poster. If you're looking for music with a deep messege, you're not gonna find it in this one. The lyrics are good, pure and true, but not profound.

One of the main reasons I Love Relient K, is because they're a group of guys who celebrate a life with a direction and purpose. They write their lyrics with a wisdom beyond their years, and from the look of this CD's particular Album Art, it seems that they're just students from High School.
All songs are well put together, and simply great. I admit that I've never heard so many profound Relient K songs all together in one Album such as this one, a track that gives a straight truthful messege is "For the Moments I Feel Faint." But of course, like all RK Albums, this CD offers lyrics that can crack a smile on your face guaranteed :D
Favorites would be...
"Down In Flames"
"Those Words Are Not Enough"
..and that's just to name a few cause I basically love the whole Album.

Well, I have no interest in this Album in the first place, I downloaded it for free! :D
I haven't had the time to sit and listen to them. And when I do have time, most likely I choose to listen to Relient K or any other catchy bands. With that I can't really rate this CD, but I'll give the "Average NRTeam Rating"!

Mission Accomplished, I bought it except better!! If you read my review for the Remedy Album then you'd understand ;)
For being the Limited Edition Version, it's a BLAST! Way better than the average CD, it brings you 2 discs. One CD [Green] offers all 10 original tracks plus a Radio Remix of "Never Let Go"; the difference of that track was very minor compared to the original.
The second disc [White] is the DVD giving 4 of their Best Performed songs in their Remedy Club Tour in NY and GA:
"Here Is Our King"
"O Praise Him (All This For A King)"
And bonus music video "Foreverandever Etc...". David has a funny story behind that song by the way xD And to get the complete tour expirience for those who are nuts for David Crowder Band, make sure to check out the full-length DVD "Remedy Club Tour DVD" coming 8/19/08!!
Probably one of the BEST recorded Albums I've ever heard, strongly recommended :) You could never go wrong with a DCB CD! I really like the art work and how the lyrics are shown, very unique. You may be wondering what the world am I talking about if the Album Cover is a plain big green cross, what's so cool about that?!? WELL, you just wait till you see the inside ;D hehe.

After my weeks of torture waiting for the release, I step into Circuit City exactly on July 1st expecting to see Relient K's lovely new EP. Did they have it? NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
ATTENTION TO ALL PEOPLE OF ALL AGES: BOYCOTT CIRCUIT CITY. thank you.
Regardless of the past, went to Best Buy on the 2nd and finally had my hands on it. And I also bought Remedy[Limited Edition] with Bonus DVD by David Crowder Band, excellent stuff by the way.
This Album is the JAM, holds "some rarities and some uh unreleased recordings ..BUZZ"!! xD There's Rock, Acoustics, Reggae and even some Country! It would've earned a + if the band threw in some pictures and more creativity to fill in the white.
The whole band became one in this CD; Jon, Matt, Jon, Matt, and Ethan wrote atleast one song each. Very random and goofy lyrics to sing :D "Bee Your Man" is definitely one of my favorites written by Schneck ending with Ethan concluding 5 great things about America: Freedom,Justice,America,and Tacobell(that's only 4!).. and the best comes last but that would be a spoiler ;D The Bees are guaranteed to make you laugh!! "Curl Up And Die" being the longest track on "The Nashville Tennis EP" keeps me thinking.
"The Scene And Herd"
"Up And Up [Acoustic]"
"The Lining Is Silver"
"Where Do I Go From Here"
"The Last, The Lost, The Least"
"Hope For Every Fallen Man [Acoustic]"
And many more!!
"Where Do I Go From Here" is better Acoustic.
"Hope For Every Fallen Man" is better than the Acoustic Version.
I would like to dedicate "You'll Always Be My Best Friend" to my Best Friend Amy(Annie_93) :P

I'm listening to this Album right this very second(Saturday,June.28.2008- 3:11 AM) :D
This is probably the BEST Christmas CD I've ever heard!! (NOTE: Never listened to a Christmas CD) I don't own the actual Album, however I have it on my Zune. There's a funny story to why I have it, but I don't feel like writing the whole thing, hehe.
Seriously, this is an awesone Album to listen to while doing random stuff and I guaratee you Matty's famous Christmas Spirit by the end of the day!!
Relient K makes listening to Christmas Carols FUN! They included rocking beats to most of the songs, and some are the same classic ones but with Matty's clever twists. Plus, I basically love every CD that has "Relient K" in big bold letters on it.
Favorites from the Album would be...this one is a hard one :P..
"I Celebrate The Day"
"Santa Claus Is Thumbing To Town"

4 1/2 stars for a pretty good CD!! Not the best, still like Oh! Gravity. way more :D
Like many other people, I do feel that the songs are "depressing" but at the end Jon gives the message that lets you know that you'd be stronger next time, tomorrow is a new day. He pretty much got that message through "The Setting Sun".
I bought this Album on April 26, 2008 on their concert at West Palm Beach,FL at the well-known Cruzan Amphitheater. Won the ticket from my church ^_^ When I was in line for the CD, all I looked forward to about it was "Stars" and "We Are One Tonight" (They're Classic :D). But when I took the time to go over the songs, I got new favorites!
I had technical difficulties though >.>
I tried to sync it into my Zune, but it wouldn't because it has some security that only certain devices can sync the music. However, no more worries! The CD allows 3 copies to be made, so Amy figured she would burn one for herself and then with that one I could try to sync it. It worked,yyyaaaayyy!! Thank you loser :D
Favorites from this Album would be...
"We Are One Tonight"
"The Shadow Proves The Sunshine"

I really really liked this CD, great worship tunes!! I don't own it, checked it out in the library. But I promised myself that I will get it when I buy "The Bird And The Bee Sides" by Relient K ^_^
Love every single song written for this CD, they all sound different. The Album proves that there are several meanings when it comes to the Glory of God. If you're into Hillsong United, you're gonna love David Crowder. The CD uses a lot of acoustics and some even techno xD Great Music!
My favorites from this Album would be.... man, it's hard to pick :P I would say the whole CD but if I had to pick 2 it would be:
"The Glory Of It All"

This book/journal was OK. Not bad but not good either. I didn't even write in it xD
It covered some interesting stuff, and it did made me look at things differently. Still, I'd rather get another book :P
