iTunes Review

With 2005’s In Your Honor, the Foo Fighters distinctly divided their approach into acoustic and electric collections that helped the band fully explore their disparate influences without watering down either approach. For the follow-up, 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace, the group string their various approaches together for what flows as a naturally stylistically diverse album, comfortable expressing its angst with distorted guitars and emotionally charged pleading (“But, Honestly”) or with the piano and gentle orchestration of the album’s closing ballad (“Home”). Singer Dave Grohl has always seemed most comfortable leading a hard rock charge, and “The Pretender,” “Cheer Up, Boys” and “Long Road to Ruin” are readymades for the Foo Fighters’ live assault. However, the album’s most surprising and affecting moments are the subdued shades of the whispered forecasts of “Stranger Things Have Happened” and the duet with acoustic guitar virtuoso Kaki King for “Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners,” where Grohl displays an emotive range that establishes him as a first-rate singer, in case there was any doubt.

Customer Reviews

"I'm As Important to Nirvana as Kurt Cobain" by David Grohl

Well said mighty Foo. This album is pefectly flawless even though there are changes I would make on one tiny song "Cheer Up Boys," that doesn't mean that I have to see it as being flawed because what is on the disk is exactly what the Foos wanted. Therefor it IS a flawless album that I've been listening to for about 5-6 days now and that's just about the perfect amount of time to listen, over and over, and see what you do like and what you don't like about the album. My hats off to Dave and all the guys. I've heard a lot of people say this is to slow, mellow, or soft, but if you've picked up on mostly everything they're doing, they are hardly playing any soft songs on this disk at all. There are a lot of crecendos and decrecendos on this album. If you take the song "Let It Die" it sounds like a really slow song, or quiet song, however, even though it takes them a minute to two minutes to finally kick, this song "kicks" just as hard as "Pretender" and there are a lot of spots like ths on the CD. I'm running out of time, but it takes a long time to really get to know music on this sort of level to where you're picking up on nearly everything there doing. I would simply say this album does rock and they do it very intelligently. Nobody really noticed it at first and I think that was part of the whole point of the album. Echoes, get 'em out of your head. Silence, download the CD, find some silence and listen to the music. Have patience, the music is going to grow on you, and with that patience, the Great Foo is going to give you grace.

DAVE GROHL IS NO MERE MORTAL!!!

First they gave us a taste by releasing the unparalleled song "The Pretender," which leaves your psyche and your nerves intensely sustained in activity. The video is first-rate. Now, it's here and it's everything I thought it would be and then some. This is a huge step up for Foo Fighters and David Grohl. I'm very happy for Dave, I think this was a major album for him and I think he nailed it. He is one of the biggest rock stars in the world and I don't see that changing anytime soon. This is a man that's traveled a long road and he's got a great biography to write someday. They didn't rush this album and I think that's a major factor to take into account on this album. It's well written. The lyrics are smart and the music goes from the extreme song "The Pretender" to "Long Road to Ruin" a song (one of my favorites) that rocks, but isn't anything real hard, it just sorta cruises along with all of the desirable qualites most usually want from a good rock song. Could possibly be their next release. From there it moves on to some meticulousl pickin' with "Ballad of Beaconsville Miners," which has some sublime sounds and melodies. In between those three songs they mix it up pretty well, and the album progresses with all the desirable qualities of a great rock album, from beginning to end. This is the perfect album from the Foo Fighters at exactly the right time and I think those who are familiar with the band will absolutely love this album, and those who aren't may change their minds after giving it a few rotations. This is the one album I would have no problem telling anyone to make the purchase on this CD because I've heard it. Even given a wide variety of musical tastes out there, I think everybody will pull something out of this CD.

best since Colour and the Shape

Being a huge Foo Fighter fan, I was thrilled to see Gil Norton was producing the new Foo Fighter cd. Wow! While not as quite the journey that Colour provided, it is an amazing set. Pretender - lead single, very good choice to open up on radio. 9/10 Let It Die - the last minute and 29 seconds are pure Colour and my favorite part of the cd. 10/10 Erase/ Replace - harder hitting song. Sort of One By One. 8/10 Long Road to Ruin - mid tempo song, with catchy chorus. 8/10 Come Alive - slower song that grows after every listen. Stranger Things Have Happened - Acoustic song and my favorite song on the cd. Would've been best song on the acoustic side of In Your Honor. 11/10 Cheer Up Boys - Logical choice for future single. Great chorus. 10/10 Summer's End - I really like this song. Mid tempo. 10/10 Ballad... - instrumental dedicated to the minors that listened to Foo fighters while trapted. 7/10 Statues - Another great song with good piano. 9/10 But, Honestly - love the way the Foos sing in two different styles. 9/10 Home - The only song I dislike. Sort of like Next Year. 5/10 So happy to hear the boys new cd. While not Colour part two, best since that masterpiece.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

When Foo Fighters released a debut album written and recorded entirely by leader Dave Grohl — at that point known only as the powerhouse drummer for Nirvana — in the summer of 1995, few would have guessed that the group would wind up as the one band to survive the '90s alt-rock explosion unscathed. 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...
