iTunes Editors' Notes

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

Wow.

Is it just me, or has Switchfoot completely changed their sound?! I'm not complaining, I actually really like it!!! Don't get me wrong, I love all their old albums too, I've got every one of them, but this new sound really is awesome. Like ukulele_ninja said, you really can feel all the hard work and effort they put into this album to make the songs come alive, and I love how it sounds. Switchfoot's sound has progressed so much throughout their years, and I'm proud to say that they can pull off any sound and still sound fantastic. Shot Switchfoot, keep up the amazing work.

Re-invention

With "Hello Hurricane", Switchfoot seem to have found a good balance between the experimentation on 2006's "Oh! Gravity." and the radio-friendly "Nothing Is Sound". The final product is an aural masterpiece, and is definitely worthy to be ranked - along with mainstream breakthrough "The Beautiful Letdown" - as one of their best releases to date.

hello hurricane
