Mr.FooAug 12, 2003well let me be honest and try not to hurt any feelings. I'm not a fan of Nirvana...I really like Foo Fighters. I have listened to maybe well let me be honest and try not to hurt any feelings. I'm not a fan of Nirvana...I really like Foo Fighters. I have listened to maybe a couple of Nirvana songs but I just don't like them. I think Foo Fighters just have this thing that I can't explain and it makes them, in my opinion, ONE OF THE BEST BANDS OF ALL TIME!! Ok well I also don't like that other group Good Charlotte. I'm really not a fan of there's either. I think all that crap sounds the same. Well that's about it. And If any of all are Nirvana fans, well yall may like that but It just don't work for me. FOO FIGHTERS RULE!!!!!! THEY ARE THE BEST!!! NIRVANA DOES SUCK AHHHHHHHH THEY STINK THEY ARE WORSE THAN GOOD CHARLOTTE!!! me and my friend are at an argument if you have anything to say about this matter please complain at the guestbook www.geocities.com/jd242007 thank you for your time...… Expand
HectorGFeb 28, 2008The Foos are the ONLY real rock band out there today... and that isn't just a situational statement. They could hold their own against The Foos are the ONLY real rock band out there today... and that isn't just a situational statement. They could hold their own against ALL the great bands. Anyone who tries to deny the brilliance of Dave Grohl is just being foolish. This is our modern-day LedZep, folks. As close as we'll ever get to "all original sound rock-and-roll".… Expand

While I agree with his assessment (there really isn't anything quite as catchy as, say, "Everlong"), that's hardly a reason to give this CD a mediocre rating. Personally, the only song that was a letdown to me was "Tired of You" - the rest are all good. Even the lesser moments, however, eclipse most or all of the music on a CD by your average neo-punk-clone or nu-metal-survivor. It's not really fair to judge, say, the Rolling Stones' later CDs by the greatness they used to come up with. Along the same line, this most excellent CD doesn't in any way deserve an "average" rating.… Expand
Nov 9, 2013Sorry I don't mind the Foo Fighters but I found this to be a very sterile and uninspired album. For a band of this type hard-rockingSorry I don't mind the Foo Fighters but I found this to be a very sterile and uninspired album. For a band of this type hard-rocking crowd-pleasers these songs try their best to tear town walls but just sound stilted thanks to the smooth, slippery-slick production and formulaic songwriting. Even "One By One" doesn't do as much as penetrate the eardrum. These melodies just don't amplify. "Low" in particular is just horrible.
Ironically, it's where the Foos sit back and run on autopilot that the best track on this album comes about. "Time Like These" is by far the catchiest song on here and doesn't actually TRY to shatter the room. It is just a well-constructed power-ballad that hits the mark. The rest, though, is so polished you can't keep hold of it.… Expand
