Learning to Breathe, Switchfoot's third album, continues the band's welcome lack of religious didacticism, instead expressing its spiritual concerns in more universal terms. Don't think that Switchfoot ought to be more dogmatic to avoid compromising their beliefs, though; every song here is firmly rooted in Christian faith and philosophy, as well as (musically speaking) mainstream post-grunge alternative rock. It's refreshing (and more compelling) to hear a band still searching for the answers instead of claiming to have them already.
