iTunes Review

Roaring back on a new label with a retooled sound, Switchfoot turns Hello Hurricane into a triumphant statement of purpose. It's not that the album is free from fear and doubt — lead singer/songwriter Jon Foreman grapples with a host of inner afflictions in these tracks. But the strength of Hello Hurricane comes from its sense of spiritual victory in the face of overwhelming odds, aided by some of the brawniest rock the band has laid down since its inception. Distorted guitars and clattering rhythms lend urgency to “Needle and Haystack Life,” “The Sound (John M. Perkins’ Blues),” and “Bullet Soul.” Foreman takes on a desperate edge in tracks like the galvanizing title song, snatching joy from impending disaster. Emotional breakdown — and the promise of spiritual rebirth — is a reoccurring theme, captured with fevered eloquence in “Free” and “Mess of Me.” In contrast, “Your Love Is a Song” and “Enough to Let Me Go” are more contemplative visions of man’s relationship with God. “Always,” a delicately wrought expression of love between parent and child, may be the album’s most affecting moment.

Customer Reviews

Truly Incredible!

This album was definitely worth the wait! Switchfoot never fail to impress me with the depth of their music. The concepts that this band explores have such meaning! They dig deep into ideas and get down right to the songs' roots. It's a task that a lot of artists today fail to accomplish but Switchfoot are different. I've never successfully been able to compare another band to them. It's almost as if 'Switchfoot' is a genre in itself! It astounds me!

Hello Hurricane, You can't silence my love.

Switchfoot = Lyrical geniuses.

Such an amazing album! I went to their London concert yesterday and they were just as brilliant live. Switchfoot is much too underrated in the UK. Definately one of those albums you can listen from start to finish and not want to skip a single tune. Worth buying!

"Hello Hurricane, You Can't Silence My Love!"

It's hard to judge, but this is probably Switchfoot's best album. There isn't a bad song on the album; from the rocking "Mess of Me" to the beautiful melody of "Your Love is a Song" each one is filled with inspired creativity.

The title track of the album, "Hello Hurricane" is my personal favourite of the album. It's crying out that with all the disasters, hurt and pain surrounding us, that we can face it, and that it cannot silence our love! When we're battered by the storms of this world, sometimes we need to hold on to truths like that!

The band said when they were putting together the album, if the song didn't make you cry, what's it doing on there? And this is evident in the album, the band have poured their heart and soul into this album and ended up with something fantastic!

After gaining a foothold in the contemporary Christian music scene, Switchfoot went mainstream with 2003's The Beautiful Letdown, a double-platinum album that straddled the line between sacred and secular rock music. Years before Switchfoot's commercial breakthrough, though, the group struggled to make a dent in the San Diego area, where singer/guitarist Jonathan Foreman, bassist Tim Foreman, and drummer Chad Butler began playing together in 1996. The lineup logged several shows under its original...
