This was a weird adjustment or change from the edgy rock album, Vice Verses. Switchfoot has been around for over a decade, bringing in a lot of change. From their raw garage band vibe of the early Legend of the Chin to the fine tuned hits of the Beautiful Letdown (which didn't let down) to the Chaotic and fun Oh! Gravity and finally to the dark pure rock of Vice Verses. So it isn't a new concept thats been around as long as they have. But to make this change from their usual rock presence to this new alternative rock with a mix of pop, Switchfoot gave us a gift, Fading West (the movie). A film about 5 guys traveling around the world chasing waves and chasing songs. The story put you right in the middle of the songs creation and tied you to them in ways few artist can ever dream of. Watching this movie makes every note of Fading West the music so much more beautiful. Now I am a die-hard Switchfoot fan, but that doesn't mean I love everything they put out. Like i wasn't hooked on Oh! Gravity. It seemed to random at parts, musically and lyrically. But hear me when I say this Fading West is absolutely beautifully amazing. Defiantly get this and yeah it's worth the $9.99 on itunes

Switchfoot's been slipping ever since the release of Vice Verses, which, while containing some of the best songs they've ever written, also contains some of the worst. Only the latter comment can be made for Fading West. A safe CCM record with none of the lyrical depth we've come to expect from Switchfoot, Fading West wallows in mediocrity when it isn't providing catchy yet shallow hooks. After 9 albums, perhaps the band has lost its steam. While it's worth checking out for Switchfoot fans, they may want to keep their expectations pretty low.

"Love alone is worth the fight"

So I'm headed down the open road unknown
And we find what we're made of
Through the open door
Is it fear you're afraid of?
What are you waiting for?
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight
We're only here for a season
I'm looking for the rhyme and reason
Why you're born, why you're leaving
What you fear and what you believe in
Why you're living and breathing
Why you're fighting it and getting it even
Let's go headed down the open road unknown
And we find what we're made of
Through the open door
Is it fear you're afraid of?
What are you waiting for?
Love alone is worth the fight
Love alone is worth the fight

They said it's complicated
They said we'd never make it this far
But we are

They said the fight would break us
But the struggle helped to make
Who we are

Who we are
(in the fever of our youth)
Who we are
(We've got nothing left to lose)
Who we are
(There's still time enough to choose)
Who we are
Who we are
Who we are
