Item description for Learning to Breathe by Switchfoot...
This is the band's third album and although at times there are hints of their edgy west coast surf-rock sensibilities which infused their previous albums, this is a huge leap in Switchfoot's development.

The best Switchfoot cd. Jan 27, 2007
This cd is by far the best of all of Switchfoot's cds. With amazing lyrics and gorgeous melodies, it's one that you'll never get tired of listening to. For those who have only recently jumped on the Switchfoot bandwagon, you'll recognize "Dare You to Move" on this cd, in it's original (and better) form. Every song on this cd has a great message, and is worth listening to over and over. Every fan should own this album.
If I cold I would give it 9999999 stars!!!! Feb 18, 2006
My all time favorite cd from this band. It includes Switchfoot's biggest hit "Dare you to move". I liked this the first time I heard it, and it remains my favorite cd. This is a must for any Switchfoot fan.
A Good Collection Oct 12, 2005
Learning to Breathe is a very enjoyable album. It contains some very interesting and good music along with good vocals and positive lyrics.
The words in this CD are definitely focused on the Creator of the Universe. Here are some examples of lyrics:
Learning to Breathe - I'm finding that You and You alone can break my fall.
You Already Take Me There - You meet me where I am, forgive me where I am.
Love Is The Moment - Why God gave His life to put motion inside my soul. It's bigger than cold religion. It's bigger than life.
There are really no bad songs in this collection. Two that are real standouts are Dare You To Move and Learning To Breathe.
If you like Christian music, this is a good album to get. If you like Switchfoot, it is a must have. If you are not in either of the above categories, I'd recommend it anyway. It is a very creative effort and you will likely enjoy it.
It's the music that matters Jul 5, 2005
"I Dare You to Move" first drew me to this band and so of course I had to check the other little music clips this site provides. Learning to Breathe is a little less polished then The Beautiful Letdown, but in a nice way. It actually works better for this album I think. Musically, Switchfoot has a very distinctive and gripping sound. Most of their lyrics avoid direct subject references that can turn some people off to secular music, and so this album stands on it's own because the music is just great.
Switchfoot's 3rd album: A solid album Jul 5, 2005
I first listened to 'Dare You To Move' from the movie 'A Walk To Remember' and I was instantly wanting to know more about this band so I purchased their album 'The Beautiful Letdown' and since that first time of listening to that album I was hooked. This self professed christian trio have not let down fans with this their 3rd album but have cemented themselves as a must listen band in the soft-rock genre. The first 4 songs of this album is the reason I gave the album 4 stars in rating cause in my opinion the 4 songs are some of the best that Switchfoot have created. 'Learning To Breath' takes your breath away, it is intoxicating. Another great song is track 4 'Love Is the Movement' which sounds more anthem popish than rock. This is a less spiritual feel to the album than the first 2 Switchfoot album but there is a feeling of messages of hope for youth and those who are facing problems that seem to big. Another nice song is 'The Loser' which would not be out of place on one of those sappy teenage romance films in vogue at the moment. This album is for all christian band fans and soft rock genre fans in general.
