Ten albums in, Switchfoot’s aim is sharper than ever. The San Diego-based band’s newest album, Where The Light Shines Through, shows off a veteran acumen in both Jon Foreman’s straight-to-the-heart lyrical approach and their stellar alt-rock sensibilities. For a band already celebrated for providing fans with the whole package time and again, it’s a testament to the band’s talent and discipline that they continue to burn so brightly twenty years after they started. Up-tempo cuts like “Holy Water” and “If The House Burns Down Tonight” should be live favorites. The title track spins the story on the scars we all bear. Then there’s the potent “Looking for America,” a track featuring Lecrae that asks a series of serious questions. Altogether, these twelve songs form another very fine effort from a band that’s rocking their prime.
