iTunes Review

San Diego’s Switchfoot was at the forefront of the contemporary Christian hard rock scene for so long that it easily assimilated into the mainstream without sacrificing its sense of musical adventure. Vice Verses is the kind of ambitious hard rock record that fans will celebrate with good reason. It’s arguably the best of the group’s career, filled with songs that flash hooks with muscle. “The War Inside” masters the art of the dramatic arc, where keyboards loom in the background while guitars crush the competition. “Blinding Light” sets off with the group’s alt-pop side shimmering through. “Dark Horses” works both a moody texture and an anthemic chorus. The title track shifts toward Switchfoot’s acoustic arena-rock-ballad side, evoking U2 at its most intimate. “Restless” creates a pop haze both ethereal and powerful. “Selling the News” takes a political-sociological turn with vocal manipulations. “Where I Belong” rasps with a seductive warmth. The deluxe version includes a live concert from Center Stage in Atlanta that features many of the band’s fan favorites.

Vice Verses Review

Awesome Record!!!! my favorite used to be Nothing is Sound, but now I'm definitely sure it's Vice Verses. I can tell Jon has definitely changed his wrting style, and what's great about this album is that all the songs sound different. They were all right - this is the boldest album to date.

The Most Inspiring Switchfoot Album Ever

Hold on, I realize how big of a claim that is. The multi-platinium "The Beautiful Letdown," the fan favorite "Nothing Is Sound," and the Grammy winning "Hello Hurricane" all are great albums that rightfully deserve praise, but this is something different. Something truly amazing.

Whether you've loved the band since "The Legend of Chin" or you've never heard of them, this album is for you. Vice Verses is easily one of the most inspired and important albums to be released in the last 10+ years. As a bonus you get their entire Grammy winning "Hello Hurricane" album If you buy this version of the album.

Listen I can't make this any more clear, this album is truly amazing and if you're not listening to it while you're reading this I feel bad for you.

Easily their best work yet

First off, I want to say that Hello Hurricane was by far my favorite Switchfoot album ever. They got rid of that annoying christian pop sound entirely in that record, and the result was quite frankly the most gorgeous, seamless album they've ever done. But, it was very soft overall, which I loved but some people had a bit of a problem with it. Well, Vice Verses cranked the gain back up!! Not that the album is without a couple ballads, but the overall feel of the album is strait up rock...it even gets really funky on "Selling the News" (definitely a must-listen!). Every song is memorable, because each song has a unique feel and hook to it.
I'm crazy in love with Vice Verses. I couldn't be happier with Switchfoot's progression over the past 3 or 4 years. And we get this gem of an album just after being treated to NeedtoBreathe's amazing album 'the reckoning'?!?!?! We're getting spoiled here...and i have no problem with that! :D

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.
