    By far the most enjoyable and mature album in the Foo Fighter's canon, "Echoes Silence Patience & Grace" has some of the catchiest and rocking songs in "the Pretender" or "Erase/Replace." This is the most complete album by the Foos, and each song seems carefully placed in the album for a reason. "Home" may be the best song Dave Grohl has ever written. Simply put, if you don't enjoy this album, you won't enjoy much else by the Foo Fighters, and you'd be hard pressed to call yourself a fan. Expand

    This has become one of my favourate albums, especially songs like: "Stranger things have happened" and "Home". Though Im not really pleased with songs like "the Pretender" and "Summers end" because theyre too commercial.

    excellent album all around. what really makes this one stand out is its attention to dynamics, much like The Colour and the Shape. its blend of alternative with folk rock gives the sound something new and fresh for the Foo Fighters. great balance in song choice; ending with "Home" leaves the listener with the urge to replay the entire album once again.

    Foo Fighters never stop making great music. This is another example of good rock. One of their best album with some of their greatest songs (The Pretender, Long Road To Ruin, Let It Die). Well Done!

    It's charming, understated and has to be heard in context. [Oct 2007, p.100]
  2. By and large this is as consistent a record as the Foo Fighters have ever made.
  3. They're sounding less and less relatable, leaving us pining not just for the days of a little grunge trio from Seattle, but for the relentlessly catchy and charismatic Dave Grohl of the Foos' still-fantastic self-titled debut and the better half of "The Colour and the Shape."
