Best release of 2007,
This review is from: Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (Audio CD)
i purchased this album the day it hit the shelves. Dave Grohl just keeps getting better. After last years acoustic release the Foo Fighters took a break for the holidays and began the follow up. Gil Norton who produced the Foo Fighters masterpiece 'The Colour and the Shape' is back on board and does a great job as usual. What they did in my opinion here is they took elements of there acoustic stuff and the full on rock tracks and brought everything together and it works. There is a little bit of something for everyone. Straight up rockers like 'The Pretender' to the pop sounds of the great 'Statues'. Every track is top notch with what just may very well be the best Foo Fighters song to date, Long Road to Ruin. Long Road has a great hook and a chorus you will find stuck in your head through out the day, my five year old even loves it. Another great thing is the addition of piano, and no surprise who plays it , yes Dave Grohl. Dave is turning out to be one of the best song writters this decade and of course one of the best all around musicians in rock history. Do yourself a favor and pick this up, it just fits this time of year, it just has a very fall like vibe about it. I give 5 stars plus, hands down the best release of 2007.
