It's over two years since 'The Beautiful Letdown' was released and in the interim the band have played to a million people and sold three million copies of the album. No mean feat! It also means that this is one of the most eagerly anticipated new albums of the year. The guys manage to walk the line between artistry and ministry, rock and pop to create an album that is simultaneously immediate and yet manages to reveal depth with each new play. Jon Foreman's lyrics still make your heart ache and prod at the vulnerable areas of human existence and our search for meaning and happiness. He still manages to point people towards the eternal without loading his lyrics full of cliché. In short, this is great work for those already converted by the previous release. If you hated the last album though like most of the mainstream British press, then it's unlikely that this will grab you as the band take a similar approach. "Easier Than Love" is a punchy examination of the cheapening of sex in contemporary culture whilst "The Setting Sun" looks beyond the brokenness of contemporary life to somewhere bigger and better where healing can take place. I love the catchiness of songs like "We Are One Tonight" and "Stars" which are propelled along at a pace and display the way the band manage to balance melody with a rocky edge to fine effect. "Nothing Is Sound" is the spirit of "The Book Of Ecclesiastes" set to a rock'n'roll beat and fed to the MTV generation. Let's hope it shakes up some souls! Topping 'The Beautiful Letdown' was always going to be a challenge and this superb set does the business!

Brilliant CD. Switchfoot were one of the first Christian bands I listened to, certainly the most lively. I'd recommend it to anyone, Christian or non-Christian.

'Nothing is Sound' is a fantastic album, absolutely riddled with great lyrics, poppy melodies and superb diversity in rock guitar sounds! There is surely something for every music lover on this cd! Agreeing with Jason, this album will hopefully appeal to both Christian and non-Christian ears.

you just gotta love swtichfoot, their second albulm 'Nothing is sound' proves to be just as successful as their first albulm 'beautiful letdown'! Stars is sure to hav u singing it for days!

i bought the album before the 'beautiful letdown' and i fell in love with that album. so i didnt think they were going to be able to top that, but i was wrong 'nothing in sound' is amazing. as always jon's songs are a little bit dark at times but here is a person that is willing to take hold of what it means to be a christian with the ups and downs of what that means to be living in a time like now. this album really spoke to me on. And the stars video is one of the better christian clips this year.

A great follow up to 2003 "The Beautiful Letdown"cd. I was now hooked by the music of this ccm rockin group. I was watching gospel music station and seen the videos for "We are One Tonight" and "Stars". I immediately luved the song "Stars", it made that special connection; to anyone who luvs to look at the stars! Great vocals by Jon Foreman; one of the best rockin' ccm songs ever!!Great song guys!!
If you have cd "Beautiful Letdown" you will want this cd as well! GOD Bless! -Don
