|Foo Fighters Ranked (again)|
These lists are getting really boring, so I decided to make one myself.
Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
Despite some obvious highlights like the Pretender and Let It Die, this is by far the most
dissapointing Foo Fighers album. The songs are listenable, but they lack the signature Foo
There Is Nothing Left To Lose
An attempt at a more mainstream rock sound, Learn To Fly is incredibly cheesy and
receives way too much phrase. Stacked Actors and Generator are win though.
One by One
The most inconsistent Foo Fighters record. Some of the Foos heaviest material is here like All My
Life and Low and some awesome drumming (Dave let Hawkins to his own thing on this one) and
some hidden gems like Come Back and Lonely as You. Unfortunately there's also plenty of filler, I
believe the Foos were having a Tough time ath the moment.
Amazing and raw debut, some of their best material right here. Still, the execution lacks
and the sound hasn't yet been refined, it's clear that Dave at the time didn't the
direction of his project.
In Your Honor
A valiant attempt at a double album. It's hardly perfect, but the band sounds as
comfortable as ever and the direction the band was trying to take is clear. Dave himself
said it's the album he's most proud of and wants to be remembered by.
The Colour and the Shape
Fan favourite and a modern classic. So why is it not number 1? The Foos were always
"Dave's band", but though to this being one of the earlier Foo Fighters records this is a bit
more apparent here. And the flow the album lacks from time to time.
It's just stunning that after so many years the Foo's came rocking with their most powerful
and energetic release yet. It's a very consistent and FUN record especially at points where
TCATS slows down. Some of the tracks are bit derivative true, but the end is result is
|Well shit, it seems I just wrote a bunch of soundoffs...|
|5 is way too low|
|the foo fighters suck dick|
|Still better list than yours KILL, besides I like justified my choices and whatnot
And the Foos don't suck dick. Except Pat Smear, he might suck some dick from time to time.|
|great list even though i strongly disagree with you on "Learn To Fly" but good job anyway.|
|Also we both like Stone Temple Pilots so it can't be all bad|
|i like echoes, silents, patience & grace more than you do but good list|
|Aids- ESP&G was the first album I heard from them and I was so dissapointed it almost turned me off of them, but eventually I learned to like that one too, I'm a hopeless fan anyway.|
xxm- STP all the way, I wish Weiland would get his shit together these days though
|1 is not 1. 2 is 1.|
|1 2 and 4 are all i give a shit about, the rest suck|
|@truekebabpower yes i wish he would too kebab,i wish he would too|
@Hitler is the best whatever
|The Greatest Hits are great to0o|
|colour & the shape will always be 1 for me|
|yeah same. Can't top songs like Everlong or Monkey Wrench|
