Just picked up Switchfoot's latest, Where the Light Shines Through. Switchfoot is my favorite of the "Christian crossover" bands.
Here's a review:

Well, JFH didn't review the Deluxe Edition. Hope Is the Anthem is not the last track. Begin Forever, at #14, is fantastic. JFH poo-pooed Live It Well just a bit, but I think it's one of the best tracks on the album. I can tell they put a lot of production into it, and I love it.
The whole disc is really good. I think the lyric writing gives a much bigger glimpse into Jon's theology than in the past. That tells me he's in a much different place than say the days of Nothing Is Sound.

Thanks for your input.
Musically this is a little different than I'm used to from them.
Jon is a deep person. I think his lyrics only scratch the surface of what's in his head... :lol:
