I've long held this album is high, very high esteem (ever since I bought it as a $13.99 impulse purchase when it first came out)... but now with the impending release of "Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace" and the return of a radio track that catches my ear on the first try (leadoff single "The Pretender"), I was compelled to return to musing on why "There is Nothing Left to Lose" immediately hit me, and then retained its charm over the years.

This is the point of view of a guy who's listened to little other Foo Fighters (apart from the singles and the "One By One" album, which did not captivate me as much as TiNLtL or Grohl's absolutely excellent drumming on Queens of the Stone Age's "Songs for the Deaf"). The reason for my limited knowledge of the rest of FF's canon is simple: most FF singles did not hit me the way the songs on TiNLtL did. "Big Me" and "This is a Call" didn't register highly on my radar, and "Alone and Easy Target" struck me as a catchy _Nirvana_ song... So how did this album measure up on first listen?

After basically skipping over "Stacked Actors" the first time I listened to the album, I gave "Breakout" more of a chance due to its lighter, vocal-and-clean-electric intro.

While I am a very big fan of the Foo Fighters, I will not be a homer to this bands every song. Sure, "Learn to Fly" got overplayed and old quickly, but there are some very "catchy" songs on this compilation. "Stacked Actors" grabs you quickly and doesn't really ever let go. Aurora has a nice spacey sound (Best song that they do live-lights, mood, whatever, if they don't play this song live...boo), and "Live in Skin" is one of those songs that you hear and at the beginning you go "is this just a filler song or something?" it turns out to be one of the better compositions that they have done. Real mellow songs like "Ain't it the Life" and "Next Year" were songs that I initially loved but they have worn on me to the point that I don't feel bad skipping them. If you like a rock c.d. that doesn't sound like AC-DC or Nickleback, these guys and this c.d. is for you...otherwise, just listen to your area rock station and get sick of the stuff that you get to hear time and time again...these guys aren't as big as Mt. Everest, so they still have that "small time" niche to them.

There Is Nothing Left To Lose shows a predictable turn by Dave Grohl and the Foos from poppy but still raw-ish melodic rock of the previous album, The Colour And The Shape, to more melodic and less raw radio rock. Riding the hit single "Learn To Fly," this album continued the mainstream success that "Everlong" and "Monkey Wrench" had brought the band.
That said, even though most of the music here is about as radio-friendly as you can get ("Next Year" was used as the theme song for the NBC chick comedy-drama "Ed," for crying out loud), Grohl delivers most of it with the kind of energy and sincerity that you don't often hear in this type of music.
"Stacked Actors" actually starts the album on a fairly raw note, with a heavily-distorted riff giving way to swirling, ethereal guitars behind lounge-sung lyrics. This, "Breakout," and "Learn To Fly" form a solid beginning to the album that declines in quality somewhat with "Gimme Stitches" and "Generator"--two songs that, though not bad per se, don't really hold the listener's attention, vocal distortions aside. "Aurora" is really the masterpiece of the album. A slower tune, with interesting instrumentation, and one of Grohl's better vocal performances to some of what I think are the best Foo lyrics ever ("I just kind of died for you, you just kind of stared at me.")
Throw in some more ballads and an energetic closer ("M.I.A.") and you've got a solid album that never pretends to be anything else.

i agree that this is not a bad album but it is far from good as well. (i also agree that i dont think Dave and co. could make a bad record) the foo fighters 2nd album, the colour and the shape was a great record filled with enough melody and yet plenty (and i mean PLENTY) of raw edges and emotion to make it a masterpiece.
the foo's third outing , there is nothing left to lose has way too much sweetness in sound. there is not enough raw edges. the opener (called stacked actors) sounds like something from hell with that great groove that kicks off the album. (it also sounds like something kurdt cobain migh thave used via in utero)
but there are few songs like it. the album is far too overproduced and ends up being such a disappointment for me but that does not mean it is a bad album. songs like next year and M.I.A really hit a nerve with me. they are so beautiful and dave has one of the best voices in rock, if you ask me. for me i prefer the anger and emotion and utter rawness(both in music and lyrics) of the colour and the shape. the raw emotion that bleeds through is so wondeful and that, to me, is what is missing on this album. there has to be a blend of sweet and sour and this album has too much of the former and not enough of the latter.
