4.0 out of 5 stars The entire year is complete! May 11, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
The Fall and Winter EPs were absolutely phenomenal. Spring was good but probably my least favorite. Summer is outstanding, bringing the 4 EPs full circle, satisfying my ears, my soul and my spirit.

Spring starts out with a cute little number called "March (A Prelude to Spring)" which sounds nothing like any other song Jon or Switchfoot has ever put out. Then the familiar acoustic stuff comes with "Love Isn't Made" and "In My Arms", a couple of good, not great, songs.

The album climaxes with "Baptize My Mind" and the simple but beautiful "Your Love Is Strong" - a modern version of the Lord's Prayer. Finally, Jon does a different version of "Revenge" which was previously made available to people who purchased Switchfoot's Oh! Gravity.

Overall I would say this is the weakest of Foreman's solo efforts, but that still doesn't make it a bad album by any means.

Summer adds to Foreman's legend. It goes places musically that Foreman has not gone before, and makes some strong spiritual statements, even if we don't want to hear them.

"Resurrect Me" sounds musically like a cross between "Dirty Second Hands" and "Amateur Lovers" (from Switchfoot's Oh! Gravity.), while lyrically reminding me of "Burn Out Bright" with its "live strong now" message. It is by far the "hardest" of Foreman's songs on any of the EPs. Nice.

"Instead of a Show" smacks a lot of Christians in the face... questioning our worship and how genuine it is. Foreman challenges us to ACT on our faith. Beautiful but painful.

"House of God Forever" is a brilliant take on Psalm 23 (The Lord is my shepherd)... and a sweet duet. My favorite off the new one. "Again" has a slight oriental flavor to it, and ends off the EP, and the year, brilliantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why I keep listening.... March 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I love Jon Foreman in Switchfoot so I figured I would love him singly. I did. This album is like listening to Paul Simon who actually has something worth singing about; not just a good voice. Jon cuts out all the pretense and gets right to the core of what he sees, hears, and perceives about life, people, and the God he loves. I love his conviction, sarcasm, and wit. He is a very passionate singer who refreshes the heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! November 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a great cd! I never get tired of listening to it the words are meaningful and will give you a sense of purpose and help you to see the wonder of love and the beauty in life. The music is simple and uncomplicated even though there are a lot of different instruments, they blend well to create a beautiful masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and enjoyable June 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Switchfoot for awhile. But Jon Foreman's series of ep's (starting with Fall and Winter last year) takes a different direction from the band, and not necessarily the wrong one. In Spring/Summer, he combines diverse instrumentation, stirring lyrics, and just flat out good sound to create an enjoyable experience. Songs such as A Mirror is Harder to Hold (Summer) and Baptize My Mind (Spring) seem to truly reflect the lighter feel of the seasons. It's hard to find much truly wrong with this set, though some may find a few tracks boring. All in all, an excellent release from Foreman, and something that anyone from a veteran listener of his music to a brand new fan can find something to like about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Record August 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jon Foreman's new project is awesome! If you liked Fall & Winter, you'll love Spring & Summer even more. I guarantee it!

If you're not familiar with his stuff, it's easy going, enjoyable to listen to, peaceful, melodious, and acoustically driven. This is the music he was born to sing.

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic June 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jon Foreman is a great singer/ songwriter. My one frustration with this CD is that it comes on 2 discs, which is SUPER annoying for using in my car as I have to change the discs (or hear the same 6 songs over and over again.)
