RamirezAug 29, 2009A classic and their best cd yet. I remember how I was stunned the first time I put the cd on back in 2003, rarely I got blew away this decade by any rock album, it's refreshing original and a true riff-fest. Also it contains one of the best songs ever written: the timeless "Times Like These". The structure, the riffage and the powerful hook, man if you play music this is a song you can only dream of. It has it all. "All my life", "Have It all", the epic "Come Back", "Lonely As You" and the estranging "Disenchanted Lullaby" are all brilliant 11/10.… Expand

haylibNov 17, 2005Brill album brill songs definately the best band in the history of the world. FOO FIGHTERS ROCK!!!
foofanSep 21, 2003One by one is a great cd! Even though it's a bit slick, it still rules! (though not as much as "The colour and the shape") From the crushing opening of "All my life" to the more well known foo-sound on "times like these" ending with the Killer, almost 8 min. long "Come back" Took a while to adjust to some of the songs, but eventually it stuck like glue. Not a disappointment!… Expand
BenHSep 3, 2004Stephen Thomas Erlewine is an idiot. He doesn't actually listen to albums - he just reads other reviews writes composites so that AMG doesn't have to publish out-of-house reviews. He doesn't know what he's talkng about. This is one great album. Production and musicianship are excellent and don't let a reviewer hunting for mistakes tell you otherwise. The best indication is whether or not you enjoy listening...… 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-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
