Fading West (Atlantic)
Release Date: Jan. 14, 2014
FOR FANS OF: Jon Foreman, Relient K
Rating: 4 Stars
The secret to Switchfoot’s incredible success over the last near two decades is found in the heart of its front man, Jon Foreman. With keen insights and reflection on life and love, faith and doubt, Switchfoot has often been the soundtrack for the meaningful moments of life. Press pause on that. Fading West shows off a new Switchfoot — a SoCal band giving California vibes. Vocal experiments, synth treatments and several singalong tracks make this the most fun and infectious Switchfoot album ever.
