It's true, some bands just get better with age. Switchfoot is proof. From the first note of Vice Verses they make it clear they have something to say and a talent that continues to earn them the right to be heard. The synth sounds of "The War Inside" and the driving beat of "The Original" are a nice contrast to the lo-fi anthem "Restless," which showcase the band's great big heart. "Selling the News" may be a musical experiment gone awry, but it's a rare misstep. Jon Foreman & Co. continue to grow and change in unpredictable ways, making us always eager to see (and hear) what's next.
