Wow this was a wonderful review. Loved the album as well, probably Switchfoot's best.

Good review. Very excited to listen to this.

(Side critique: nothing big, but the bold band names did distract a little.)

Good review, but I absolutely disagree with you about "Blinding Light". That is one of the worst songs Switchfoot has ever written.
There is something about this record I can't put my finger on... I like most of the songs but it just hasn't had the same impact on me the way other Switchfoot albums have.

Thanks for reading and the critique. I was going back and forth on that and I appreciate the perspective.

Music is inevitably personal. With the current discourse and economic realities, this song resonating with me. I remember taking a full year and a family tragedy before I latched onto The Dangerous Summer's Reach for the Sun. Sometimes it is enough to just know it exists and then the time comes to connect. Thanks for reading and sharing!

It would have worked alright with fewer bands referenced, but you made some good comparisons, so overall I'd rather be a little distracted than lack the comparisons you offered.

Yeah it's funny because while I like Reach for the Sun I haven't had the personal connection with it like others did. With War Paint the connection was immediate and every single track has something to say to me personally. It's probably my AOTY.
