For all their achievements, including a half-dozen acclaimed albums (with global cumulative sales of more than 5 million) and more than twice that many signature chart singles and album tracks, Switchfoot has yet to release a ‘greatest hits’ anthology we have been waiting for. Switchfoot is one of many bands that I personally ewnjoy but have never really got aroudn to purchasing any of their full length albums. Now this album The Best Yet released on November 4th, was really intriguing to me since I am a fan of almost every one of their singles. The tracklist is full of all those hit singles you have heard including Dare You To Move, Meant To Live, Oh Gravity!, and This Is Your Life. It pulls together Switchfoot’s history representing all six albums they recorded on the indie re:Think Records and Columbia, where their 2003 breakthrough broke the platinum barrier.
The 18-song collection, features one new song entitled This Is Home from the summer 2008 movie soundtrack of Disney’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. In addition to the songs, the Deluxe Edition has 14 videos, including not only its huge MTV/VH-1 played hits, but also rare and never before released for sale videos, The Blues, Happy is a Yuppie Word and Company Car. The only complaint i can give the album is that it seems to rock hard in the beginning with the radio hits and get softer and lesser known tuines towards the end. A mixup may have been a little better but other than that, this album is rockin! Pick it up if your a fan of their singles like me. It wont dissappoint.
