Album Review

Although it was as big a commercial success as Foo Fighters' three previous albums, 2002's One by One seemed flat and tired, as if their leader, Dave Grohl, had reached a songwriting slump or as if the band had exhausted its possibilities. The time was ripe for a reinvention, or at least a risk, and the group responded accordingly with In Your Honor, a double album containing one disc of hard rock and one disc of acoustic material. Splitting music along such a clear dividing line is dangerous: since each disc explores one specific territory, each could sound monochromatic, but instead of falling into this trap, Foo Fighters benefit from these self-imposed constraints. Both the rock and acoustic albums have their own distinct character — more so than, say, Guns N' Roses' separately released Use Your Illusion's, which felt like one gigantic sprawling album — and while each is recognizably the work of Foo Fighters, neither feels as formulaic as One by One. While the acoustic album would seem to be the biggest break from tradition — not only does it have a hushed, subdued mood, but it's filled with guest stars, including several appearances by Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, a duet with Norah Jones on "Virginia Moon," and Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme returning the favor of Grohl's drumming on Songs for the Deaf by laying down guitar on "Razor" — both albums showcase a reinvigorated band that is eager to stretch out and experiment. As such, the rock album not only hits much harder than One by One — arguably, it rocks harder than any of their other records — but its has fluid musicality and a new found sense of drama that gives it a nearly cinematic sense of scope. Naturally, the acoustic album is quieter, but it also has a similar flow and easy grace that makes it a fitting complement to the harder first record. Previous Foo Fighters albums have had the problem of being a little inconsistent, both in terms of material and in terms of maintaining a consistent sound, but here, perhaps because of the focused direction of the two albums, they not only sustain a consistent mood on each record, but the songs on each are strong, hooky, and memorable. Which means that In Your Honor pulls off a neat trick: by stretching out, Foo Fighters not only have expanded their sound, but they've found the core of why their music works, so they now have better songs and deliver them more effectively. It makes for certainly their most consistent, arguably their best album yet.

Customer Reviews

A Well-Crafted Album

I didn't used to be such a big fan of the Foo Fighters, but eventually I couldn't help but love them. You can tell how much work they put into these albums by the way everything comes off perfectly. They put a lot of thought into the total sound and feeling of their music and this album is one of the best at showing that. I highly reccommend some of the non-album tracks from this album if you can get a hold of them. I especially love The Sign which was a bonus download if you bought the album from Best Buy. If you like this album you will probably also enjoy The Colour And The Shape (1997) which I think is very much like a precursor to this album.

My First Foo Fighters album.

Arcai in. I had heard that the Foo Fighters were great, and their fifth album proves that. The first disc is full of great riffs and Grohl's unique rage-filled vocals. Songs like Best of You and DOA show some of their signature style. There is however, a great difference between the first and second disc. The first disc is full of anger and high-energy. The second disc is nothing like it. It is melancholy, sad, and sentimental. It is calm also, signified by the entire acoustic sound of the dis, especially in songs like Miracle (featuring John Paul Jones) and Cold Day in the Sun. The album as a whole is great, and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a mix of hard rock anger and acoustic rock sadness. It is the ultimate Foo Fighters album, simply for the fact that it combines so many influences. However, I'm sure it is not their best record. Great songs: No Way Back, Best of You, DOA, The Last Song, Resolve, End Over End, Miracle, Friend of a Friend, Cold Day in the Sun, Razor Good songs: In Your Honor, Free Me, The Deepest Blues are Black, What If I Do?, Another Round, Over and Out, On the Mend, Virginia Moon Okay songs: Hell, Still Highly recommend: Best of You, Resolve, Miracle, Cold Day in the Sun I give In Your Honor a rating of: ****1/2 (Great) I'm going to Atlanta for the week. So long. Arcai out--

Yes! A GREAT Album

I have to say that this is the BEST Foo Fighters album ever. The heavy sound of DOA and Best of You along with the serene sound of Virginia Moon and Cold Day in the Sun. This is a great album

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...
