  1. Arguably the year's first great hot-weather record. [24 Jun 2005, p.161]
  2. 83
    Both these records chronicle the physical and mental graffiti of figuring out how to emerge from some very large shadows, including his own, with nerve and power. [Jul 2005, p.96]
  3. 74
    If you buy In Your Honor and toss out the second half, you'll own the band's best record since The Colour and the Shape. [#16, p.88]
  4. It is clean, polished rock with a vaguely punk edge that stays within a clear set of boundaries but in doing so manages to appeal to indie-kids and metal-lovers alike.
  5. 60
    [Disc 1] is grunge-punk-metal boiled down to mere energy -- and calories don't rock. [Jul 2005, p.102]
  6. Some of Grohl's lyrical shortcomings become exposed: The sameness and vagueness of his love lyrics blunt their impact.
  7. Sure, the Foos are excellent at what they do. It’s just unfortunate that what they do is so unavoidably mediocre.

    Critics actually know nothing, that's why they're critics and not musicians.

It Makes Them Better Than Half These Other Bands and Groups Who Are topping The Charts! There Music's the Smae all the Time. the Foos Deffinetly Produced One Of There Greatest CD's. Expand

    Sounds great! I There isn't a bad song on these two records and I couldn't care less about that FF makes music that isn't exciting enough for critics. The songs are great - period! And there are 20 of them which is damn impressive to me anyway... So the guy played drumns in Nirvana. Ok, can we drop that now? It would be nice with a review of FF that doesn't compare their music to the most hyped band ever. Expand

    first cd is great, but the second needs a little work because most of the songs sound the same

    The more you listen to Dave Ghrol's ever annoying vocals and flimmy lyrics, the more you're convinced he should just stick to playing drums. Expand
