Another Ustreamcast; reviewing "Letdown"; "Mess of Me" at No. 45 at Alternative radio

There is going to be another Switchfoot live broadcast on Ustream, according to the Ustream blog!

We'll keep you posted!


Indievisionmusic has posted the fourth review in their series of Switchfoot reviews before "Hello Hurricane" drops in a little less than a month!

Overall: This album is easily their most accessible with all of the hit singles and catchy vocal hooks in every track. Some of the best songs they’ve written are on here and for that reason this is the album I’d recommend to anyone interested in getting into Switchfoot. It’s not their best, by any means, as there are a few tracks that disrupt the flow of the album. ‘Ammunition’ feels more like a throw-in to me and I’ve never been crazy about ‘Redemption’. They are good songs that unfortunately don’t stand up to the rest of the gems found here. That’s probably not a mark against them so much as a compliment to how well written the rest of The Beautiful Letdown is.

And now, for the Charts News for "Mess of Me." It jumped up a spot today, moving from No. 46 to 45!
