We Recommend - Switchfoot, 'Hello Hurricane'

With only two weeks left in 2009, I was thinking it to be most appropriate to look back over the best of 2009. An album that placed high on many-a-top-ten list for 2009, Switchfoot's Hello Hurricane is a gem two and a half years in the making. Like nearly every Switchfoot record for me since their debut (with the exceptions of Nothing Is Sound,  which I liked immediately, and Oh! Gravity, which I'm still not crazy about), Hello Hurricane was a record that got better with each listen. I liked it at first when I popped it in one August morning, but not nearly as much as I did ten or so listens later. After recently experiencing their Hello Hurricane Tour - in which they played the entire record from start to finish - I had an even greater love and appreciation for the project. From Jon Foreman's usual thoughtful lyrics and passionate vocals to the driving rock anthems of "Mess Of Me" and "The Sound" and on down to the worshipful moment in "Always," Hello Hurricane is quite simply a triumph in many ways. It's a highlight of 2009 and certainly a fine way to help wrap up another decade of music. - John DiBiase (JFH President/Editor)
