3.0 out of 5 stars Get the version with the DVD Nov. 24 2009
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It's been a great November for Dave Grohl fans, with this release of their Greatest Hits CD, a slew of Nirvana, and Them Crooked Vultures. Since buying this CD, I've read that Grohl is not happy with it and didn't have much creative control. I would recommend that you purchase the version that comes with the bonus DVD, because it includes almost all of the Foo's wonderful witty and goofy music videos as well as live cuts.

As far as the CD goes, I actually don't have too many beefs with the track listing itself. Granted, Foo singles and Foo album tracks are often two different beasts and equally good. As Dave points out in the liner notes (great liner notes by the way) maybe "Aurora" should have been included in a tracklist of the "best" Foo songs. More songs from the first album should have been here. I'm sure you could pick out a dozen more. All the tracks here are singles or new songs. By and large though, no big deal, as long as you dig deeper into the Foo catalogue after hearing this CD.

What about those two new songs?

"Wheels" has a neat opening riff that sounds like country music with feedback! I like this song alot. Honestly, I think this is a country song in disguise. Imagine Dwight Yoakam doing it. See what I mean? As far as Foo songs go, maybe this would fit right in with There Is Nothing Left To Lose material. Great chorus, there's even a little twang in the chorus. It has an epic quality. Cool crashing chords in the chorus, too.

"Word Forward" starts acoustic, punctuated with some electric guitar. Not quite as strong as "Wheels", the melody is a bit more awkward. This sounds more like B-side material to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it just for the DVD Nov. 22 2009
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It's been a great November for Dave Grohl fans, with this release of their Greatest Hits CD, and Them Crooked Vultures. Since buying this CD, I've read that Grohl is not happy with it and didn't have much creative control. While that may be true, the DVD alone is worth whatever you pay for this deluxe edition. Read on!

When I first got my first DVD player ten years ago, I said to my music buddies, "What Foo Fighters need to do is release a DVD of all their music videos." Back then, when music channels actually played music, the Foos videos were some of the coolest, rockiest, and funniest videos around. "Big Me", "Everlong", "Monkeywrench", all are classic videos. Now, The Foos have released all those great videos, but not as a stand-alone package. You can get 'em for free in this deluxe set. That makes up for any qualms Foo fans may have with the track selection on this CD. You can't beat the DVD, although some videos are missing ("Breakout"). There are also some great live clips from various shows and a whole slew of videos I have never seen before. (Maybe if music channels would get back to playing music...ahh, but that is another story.)

I actually don't have too many beefs with the track listing here. Granted, Foo singles and Foo album tracks are often two different beasts and equally good. As Dave points out in the liner notes (great liner notes by the way) maybe "Aurora" should have been included in a tracklist of the "best" Foo songs. More songs from the first album should have been here. I'm sure you could pick out a dozen more. All the tracks here are singles or new songs.

By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Like many of the reviewers here, I too was fortunate to first be exposed to the Foo Fighters music back in the 90's when they made their debut. This cd has an excellent selection of their hits from the 90s time period leading all the way up to the millenium years such as the smash hit "All My Life" from 2002. All 16 songs were actually great quality hits. In my humble opinion, the band really thought of their fans when they selected the songs to go on this compilation. My personal favorite songs out of this compilation were "All My Life", "Everlong", "Learning to Fly", "Big Me", "This is a Call", "My Hero", and "The Pretender". My overall favorite song is definitely "Learning to Fly" because it is a song about having the determination for learning to soar above any obstacles towards your dreams regardless of external circumstances. Many who enjoy rock music from the 1990's and the 2000's are going to enjoy this greatest hits compilation by the Foo Fighters.
