Arguably their finest! One of the best intros to an album I've ever heard!

Garage recordings are the way to go!

This album is epic. It has the feel of one that will-or at least should-become an instant rock classic. The sound quality is unbelievable! I don't know if that's from the analogue tape used during recording but it's incredible. It manages to sound familiar but completely fresh at the same time.

"Bridge Burning" and "Walk" are two of the best opening / closing tracks I have ever heard and frame the album perfectly.
The raw and unforgettable "I Should Have Known" (with Dave's Nirvana bandmate, Krist Novoselic, on bass). Grohl's emotional growl grips you by the throat from the start and holds on relentlessly until the intensely climactic ending.
"White Limo" is white hot!
"Arlandria" - ridiculously catchy and ingeniously incorporates nursery rhyme elements.
Taylor's drumming.
Most of the album, really...!

Nothing, honestly! Except that at 48 minutes, it leaves you seriously wanting more!

Brilliant !!!!!

A fantastic album; over time will be recognised as one of their best. I'm not just saying this as it's a new album it really is fantastic ...... A Classic

Other bands burned brighter but they flamed out, breaking up after scoring a hit or two, but the Foos steadily racked up success after success, filling up stadiums around the world while staying...
