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.
