Product Description

Product Description

Limited edition German pressing of this Grammy-winning 2002 album by former Nirvana member Dave Grohl and his Foo fighting friends featuring six bonus tracks: 'Walking A Line,' 'Sister Europe,' 'Danny Says,' 'Life Of Illusion,' 'For All The Cows' (Live in Amsterdam), and 'Monkey Wrench' (Live in Australia). BMG.

Amazon.ca

Every Foo Fighters album, up to and including their fourth studio disc, One By One, fluently merges rock menace with unabashedly cheery melody and thoughtful if somewhat cryptic lyrics. So while insistent, guitar-terrorised tracks like "All My Life" and "Times Like These (One-Way Motorway)" don't expand the Foos' oeuvre, they're as catchy as hell and well worth the proverbial price of admission.

Those searching for veiled Nirvana / Courtney Love references will no doubt unearth them (or unearth what seem like veiled references), while longtime fans can relax in the knowledge that a seasoned pro like Grohl knows better than to meddle with a truly winning formula. True, there's a certain sameness to the spiky, percussive bursts of punk-pop tabled by the Foo Fighters. Yet it's pretty hard to fault players as palpably enthusiastic as Dave Grohl and his gang. --Kim Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Falls just short of perfection June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an outstanding CD, but one that could have been better if not for a few clunkers and some pacing issues. Grohl and company are in fine form here and feel very in charge of their music, but seemed to not decide on the order of their songs with much care.
(Note that the track order that Amazon lists is incorrect. What I have listed below is the actual order of the songs)
The CD starts out as good as any CD possibly can: All My Life, Low, Have it All, and Times Like These are all A+ songs and make for an extremely exciting introduction when put together. However, the album takes a massive nosedive after this. Disenchanted Lullabye is by no means a bad song, but after the glory of Times Like These it feels like a massive letdown. And Tired, which comes next, annoys me to no end. The song is built on tension, that continually rises but never bursts (think Nirvana's Lithium without the fast chorus). The song goes and goes but never gets anywhere, and is ultimately a wasted effort.
However, the CD becomes amazing again with Halo. What a glorious song, one of the most beautiful I have ever heard. Lonely as You is rather experimental sounding but works well, and Overdrive is a great song to just rock out to. After Overdrive, however, Burn Away just seems superflous: Overdrive feels like a great 2nd to last song, and the CD should conclude right after it with Come Back (typical Foo ending, has fast and slow elements and ends on a very high note).
Overall, great CD with the exceptions of Lullabye, Tired, and Burn. These songs are all inserted at very innapropriate moments in the CD and break up an otherwise perfect flow of excellent songs. Check out this CD anyways, though, as it is the best overall CD that The Foo Fighters have done, and any fan of them will not at all be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Number is Four June 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
This fourth album by this quartet whose name Foo Fighters just happens to start with the same letter as the number four. Dave Grohl's first name just happens to have four letters. Their biggest release from this CD...yep, track 4 "Times Like These." Dave was an ex-band member of a similar four-lettered monikered Seattle-ite...Kurt Kobain of Nirvana. Mere coincidence, I think so. On to the musak...
These songs get under your skin, like other Foo Fighters songs of past albums. In their punk drum bursts stattaco, pop song craft manages to seep through on almost every song. "All My Life," opens this disk with a bang driving hammershot reckless. A song of this intensity is rare. It's a must for driving in to work and headbanging behind the wheel as fellow commuters stare. The chorus soars pop rock and then later in the song, Grohl growls done, done, and I'm on to the next one, done, I'm done, I'm on to the next...and then out and out screams in punk fury, "DONE, DONE, and I'm on to the next." It's a cathartic wind machine blowing Night Ranger kinda moment.
Some of the FF's music could benefit from a less frontal assault drumming approach...it broaches on sameness. But that is but a small detractor when the album reaches track 6, "Tired of You." This is where Grohl's musical gift shines through. A minor tinged blues downplayed gem, Grohl pines, "Shame on me for the ruse/shame on me for the blues/another return that I'll never use/I won't go getting tired of you," Clues the bluesy boozey sustained hum of wailing guitars and you have one heck of a song.
This one's best played on drive, humming the optimistic lyrics of the hits, "It's times like these you learn to live again/It's times like these you give and give again/It's times like these you learn to love again/It's times like these time and time again." Hallelujah brother Dave!!

3.0 out of 5 stars These Foos Fight for a spot on music drive May 10 2004
By Claire
Format:Audio CD
The FF have put some amasing stuff out there, and hey, thats why I bought this cd. Frankly, I am dissapointed. There are only 3 or 4 songs that really impress me on the whole album. All the others seem to have you start to listen, and then fade out, until you realise its the end of the song, just like suddenly getting to the end of a page in a really boring book without comprehending what you have just read. I don't want to slam this album down, because there are SOME good things about it. The catchy chorus in "Low" has had me humming it for hours. And "Disenchanted Lullaby" has a great match of guitar lines with lyrics that could not be more right for the song. The problem is, is that these and two other songs are the only ones worth listining to. For diehard fans, this is worth buying and having, but for the average joe, a cd is not worth 15 bux only for 4 tracks. Pass on this one and hope for something a little better next time.
ps- if you understand and have a great appreciation for music and crazy live shows, I recommend anything by Led Zeppelin, their music is classic and nothing tops their shows (DVDs).

5.0 out of 5 stars An astoundingly great rock album March 29 2004
By Brad
Format:Audio CD
I was never a Nirvana fan (as they and the whole grunge movement snuffed out my '80s metal and melodic rock favs), but I have always enjoyed the Foo Fighters. While some considered their last album a bit soft, I still found it a fantastic album. That being said, I did have to wonder how rocking future efforts by this band would be at the time. Often, when bands start to get soft they will continue along that path. Suffice it to say, that did not happen with the Foo Fighters on this exceptional album.
From the opening riff of the first track and single "All My Life", you can tell that this is going to be a rocking ride. The pace does not let up at all with "Low" and "Have It All". Then comes the mid-tempo but still-rocking track "Times Like These"--the second single. I agree with reviewers who state that this track should become a classic. "Disechanted Lullaby" picks up the heavier pace again before the only true slow track of the album.
"Tired Of You" is what I would call the one ballad on the album. Great track that is still not as slow as a couple of tracks on the previous album. "Halo", a mid-tempo track, then follows before the Foos totally rock out on "Lonely As You". "Overdrive" is a kind of mid-temp track again before the rocker "Burn Away" and epic, rocking anthem "Come Back"--a phenominal track that just builds and builds to an amazing cresendo to close out this remarkable album. The DVD included is also a nice add-on to an already-great collection.
The first time I listened to this album, I marvelled at its "live" feel and sonic quality. To this day, the album still blows me away.

The Foo Fighters have established themselves as a pop/rock group that makes catchy singles, complete albums that are enjoyable from start to finish, and wacky but hilarious videos. Read more
