In my opinion, the finest work by the group and best writing by Grohl before or since. The CD that truly turned me onto the Foos, eventually earning them the spot of favorite. The debut was great, yet a little repetitive; This one is perfect in all ways.
Every song hits an individual chord with the soul, and each selection sounds genuinely heart felt. A concept album (of sorts), the order of songs is perfect as well, creating a great finished UNIT which deserves to be listened to straight through:
A little breakdown...
1)Doll - Great opener. Short and sweet, it portrays Grohl's timid and overwhelmed feeling at the beginning of the story. Each passing song is filled with more and more confidence until the triumphant end.
2)Monkey Wrench - One of the more publicly recognizable tunes on the platter, it has an awesome beat and is one of the better songs on a CD without a weak spot.
3)Hey, Johnny Park! - My second favorite song and one which, for some reason, always seems to be overlooked. Great intro, terrific lyrics, and a very unique aura qualify this one as an A+.
4)My Poor Brain - The song that took me the longest to open up to; after listening to it enough it really starts to stick. Very powerful sound, after a peculiar start.
5)Wind Up - Another hidden gem everyone tends to pass over. Somewhat bitter and vengeful, it definitely deserves a listen.
6)Up In Arms - Cool little song. Changes from slow to fast halfway through, it really becomes quite uplifting.
7)My Hero - Gets quite a bit of radio play, still. Many interperatations exist concerning its lyrics, making it very intersesting. Great drum opening, cathcy riff, and POWERFUL lyrics.
8)See You - One of the more innocent and laid back songs.Read more ›
DOLL (A)--The shortest song on the album, but probably the most overlooked. While it doesn't really feel like it belongs on the album, if it were taken off, the album would lose a great introductory song. A great short ballad.
MONKEY WRENCH (A+)--If you've been listening to the radio at all since 1997, you've probably heard this song. The first single off of the album, this song hooked listeners with it's catchy verses and chorus. Great proof that a song can have catchy verses and chorus. The song's style is similar to that of "All My Life" (One By One), it's more upbeat, a little less dark, and a little more fun. Great song to listen to when you're flying down the expressway in the summer with all the window's down.
HEY, JOHNNY PARK! (A+)--This song is a bit slower than the rest of the songs on the album, but it rocks.Read more ›

This double LP set sounds terrific for a perfect 90's rock album. I find the packaging a little weird, usually double LPs have gatefold covers with the records separate from each... Read morePublished 3 months ago by H. M. R

|This album did NOT need to be remastered!||
Yeah, man, totally agree. Nowadays, appearantly, remaster and "better sounding" is higher decibels according to record industries and everything that has to do with music marketing. I never bought the first pressing of the album, I was about to and decided to wait for a better sounding... Read More

1) It's not 5.1, just re-mastered stereo in standard CD format. The remaster sounds really good and clean.
2) They are in the studio now with Gil Norton, working on something that will hopefully lift them back up to the wave crest they managed to hit with the wonderful album TCATS.
