String Quartet Tribute to Foo Fighters
As the liner notes so cleverly state, The String Quartet Tribute to the Foo Fighters "throws the band into a time machine and presses 'Baroque'." This might be a stretch, but it's a great line nonetheless. Naturally, the prettiness and simplicity of "Big Me"'s melody does fine in string form and the addition of tasteful tambourine to "Learn to Fly" works wonderfully. But it might be "I'll Stick Around" that's the highlight of this record, since the violinists and cellists seem to respond to the song's churning bottom end and crashing chords with real abandon. There's a point in the chorus when the raw violin lead actually begins to approximate the unbridled fury of the original. This tribute won't rank among the Vitamin label's better string-quartet outings, but it might be of some interest to curious Foo completists. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

I feel that to be worthwhile, a CD of this sort needs to have cuts that are as good in their own right as the original songs. I have some like that, especially a Led Zeppelin symphonic tribute called 'Kashmir'. I am as likely to pop it into the CD player as I am an actual LedZep CD. I would never choose to listen to Resident Adolescence over the original Foo Fighter versions- they simply aren't good enough.
proof...that the foo fighters make really great music.
