Product Description

Amazon.ca

Assuming former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl dreads the thought of forever being known as "the guy from Kurt Cobain's band," the last thing he'd want to hear is that the debut album from his new band Foo Fighters sounds much like one from the deceased duke of grunge. Unfortunately, Nirvana comparisons are not only inevitable, they're bound to consume the dialogue surrounding his quartet entirely. Perhaps it was unavoidable osmosis: Grohl, Foo Fighters' lead singer-guitarist, wrote most of these tunes during breaks from beat-keeping for his former band leader. It's natural that Cobain's knack for balancing hard and fast with musical and melodic would wear off on Grohl, as well as on bandmates Pat Smear (who also played with Nirvana), William Goldsmith, and Nate Mendel (both of Seattle's Sunny Day Real Estate). Grohl even unveils vocal cords that tread lightly on Cobain's gorgeous growl. Of course, many Nirvana-wannabees have tried to capture Cobain & Co.'s teen spirit, and all failed; that Foo Fighters succeed in creating a powerful heavy rock album that's neither noisy nor stale is a measured accomplishment in its own right. So bask in the familiar neo-garage punk (a.k.a. grunge) of "I'll Stick Around", "Oh, George", and "Good Grief", because we certainly won't hear anything from the style's originator in the near future. And, who knows, you might even be surprised by Grohl's own pop chops on the mellow Byrds-like folk rock "Big Me" and catchy rave-up "This Is a Call". The Foo Fighters prove that even if you can't go home again, it sure is comfortable hanging out next door. --Roni Sarig

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad debut July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
While not as refined as subsequent efforts, the Foo Fighters' self-titled debut is a solid effort punctuated by the first three songs on the album.
The album breaks out of the gates with a lot of energy and gusto: "This is a Call" and "I'll Stick Around" are catchy tunes.
"Big Me" is a quick pit stop while on the pounding tracks freeway, but certainly still fits the album.
Starting with "Alone+Easy Target" the remaining songs are all good but less memorable and perhaps just a tiny bit rough around the edges.
The Foo Fighters are one of my favorite bands; this is probably my least favorite album by them, but only because the others are even better, not because this one is no good. This album gets lots of praise (well deserved) and some detraction, too (mostly Nirvana copycat or Nirvana capitalizers stuff) -- I tend to think that each side has some valid points, in fact. Whatever side you subscribe to, though, I think it'd be to your benefit to give both the band and their debut effort a try...I have little doubt that you'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent debut Jan. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
I picked up this album on tape in 1995, being a huge Nirvana fan obviously, I expected big things from it. I lost it in 1996 and finally got it on cd in 2003, so its great to have such an awesome album again.
1. This Is a Call: Good opener, with an array of multiple riffs and good singing. A single, as well.
Rating: A-
2. I'll Stick Around: Another single, and the best song on the album in my opinion. Starting with the awesome intro riff, and then the more relaxed verse. Everything about this song is awesome.
Rating: A+
3. Big Me: Yet again a single, and a great video too. While the song isn't exactly the best album, it's still a good song, and shouldn't be skipped very often.
Rating: B
4. Alone+Easy Target: Another good song, with a relaxed verse, and then a fiery and strong chorus which is the highlight of the song. Not to skipped.
Rating: A
5. Good Grief: The lead guitar in this song is great, with the more depressing mood all throughout the track. Another great rock song.
Rating: A-
6. Floaty: An absolutely brilliant intro really marks this song for me. A great song, with some good riffs and good singing by Dave.
Rating: A-
7. Weenie Beenie: This could have been a killer song in my opinion had Dave sung normally instead that screaming effect, especially with the great guitar riffs all throughout the song.
Rating: B+
8. Oh, George: A slower song, this is where the album starts to go into a somewhat decline, but not much. Not exactly my favorite on the album.
Rating: B
9. For All the cows: A much different song from anything else on the album, but it is a great song. The thunderous chorus is definitely a highlight of this album.
Rating: A-
10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Personality and Energy Galore Dec 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is (I guess?) a re-issue of the original CD that I own, so while I can't speak to the sound quality of this release, the original was such a good creation overall that I don't see how a re-issue could damage it in that regard.
So, on to the review. I own all of the Foo Fighters' studio albums (plus the "My Hero Japan EP"), but this is the one album by Grohl & Co. that I return to on a consistent basis. The songs here are for the most part more raw and direct than future releases, and contain an infectious sense of energy and personality that I personally found lacking in the Foos' most recent efforts. The leadoff "This Is A Call" is churning guitar pop at its finest, and the pace doesn't really let up until "Floaty," which sidetracks the album into an enjoyable acoustic ballad. But that doesn't last for long, as the very next track ("Weenie Beenie") reverts back to the raw punk noise efforts found in the middle of Nirvana albums ("Territorial Pissings," etc.). The last songs, with the exception of "Wattershed" (which just flat-out rocks), are a more atmospheric affair that really show off some of the most well-developed songwriting that Grohl has done in his entire career.
If you're just getting into the Foos, ignore the "One By One" album and start here instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters Oct. 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
1.) This is a Call - 9 / 10 - This is a terrific opening for the CD, it gets you ready for an audible trip of a fantastic CD.
2.) I'll Stick Around - 9 / 10 - This is vintage Foo Fighters sound right here. They've carreid this sound throughout all of there CDs and I simply love it.
3.) Big Me - 10 / 10 - This is a song that I can play no matter what mood I am in. This just has a great tune and happy beat.
4.) Alone + Easy Target - 9 / 10 - Another one of the songs on this CD I enjoy.
5.) Good Grief - 9.5 / 10 - I love the screaming chorus to this song and the fast tempo and beat.
6.) Floaty - 7 / 10 - This is not one of the better songs on the CD. It is a very different type of song that stands out against the other tracks, which can be a good or bad thing. Still a decent song, however.
7.) Weenie Beenie - 8.5 / 10 - This song's anything but melodic until the chorus. The guitar riffs are very cool. Another very different song that will stick it, I just happen to like this a little more than Floaty.
8.) Oh, George - 6 / 10 - This song isn't really different, it fits in with the style of this CD, but it just doesn't really appeal to me all that much.
9.) For All The Cows - 10 / 10 - VERY DIFFERENT. This song is terrific, and goes right along with Big Me. Another great, slower song.
10.) X-Static - 8 / 10 - A decent song, but it's not one of the better songs, in my opinion.
11.) Wattershed - 7 / 10 - A fast and unforgiving song that burns through the lyrics, but ultimately gets really repetitive towards the end of this song, and the chorus isn't all too special either.
12.) Exhausted - 6 / 10 - A wierd and somewhat annoying ending, to an otherwise excellent CD, thanks to all the distortion and static on this track.
Overall - 8.
