^Wow, that looks really really really awesome. How many of you are stoked to finally get this in your mailbox??
Here's a new review of "Hello Hurricane," from Disarray Magazine.
The music showcases itself to be divided into 12-tracks, where the sound is unbelievable. Opening tune "Needle and Haystack Life," takes you immediately back to Switchfoot’s classic methods of music usage, by having this opener sound quite similar to the classic hit from their fifth album Nothing is Sound single, “Stars.” Upbeat and catchy tones result when guitars clash together to overpower one another, cutting in for solo segments that just break away right into the end.
As far as the album continues to roll along, “Mess of Me," along with "The Sound (John M. Perkins Blues)," tend to be the more aggressive tracks, while the other tunes tend to drain out the music altogether by compelling this overwhelming sensation that lacks the music's progression side.
