Review Summary: exhausted is better

14 of 18 thought this review was well written

This album has balls. It just never stops ruling, even the slower songs rock. Dave Grohl is a god, he wrote and played every instrument on these songs and damn they rule. The first song titled This is a Call, has a nice acoustic intro with weird ass lyrics and then its stop ***ing around and gets down to business. This songs cool as its just simple distorted chords that would be kinda pussy sounding but the drums are being pounded so hard it just has to jam. If you thought that song was good the next song I'll Stick Around kicks you up the diltch. The main riff is one of their heaviest ever. The lighter songs are ***in awesome too. Big Me is a short, catchy and fun song. It also has the best music video ever made. X-static is much darker and heavier, featuring some unconventional chords, it rules. This album can get really heavy too, especially the de-tuned headbanger Weenie Beenie and Wattershed, a track really which shows Daves punk side. The drumming is just amazing, well duh its Dave Grohl. I cant listen to this album without air drumming, or finger drumming when people are around. Production is good, the album is very warm sounding and makes me feel cosy. The main difference between this and pretty much every other foo fighters album is that this one doesnt *** around, is there any filler? weird ballad interludes? the answer is neck. Many songs on the album are driven hard. The song Good Grief especially is one of their best, its so ***ing catchy and heavy at the same time. The guitars are loud and very distorted, Daves playing is nothing amazing but he uses some really cool chords and theres even a sweet solo in Oh George. Now we talk about the best song ever made, Exhausted. Everything about this song is perfect, the heavy driven verses, the amazing chorus riff, the spacey vocals, its the perfect way to end the album. Every time it fades out i feel sad that its ending, which makes me listen to the whole damn thing again. Not many albums can do that to me.


This album is really special and overall, Foo Fighters best. It uses the usual Foo's formula of hard rockin tunes and softer ballad songs. The only difference between this album and the rest of their discography is the slower songs dont even slightly ruin the flow of the album. It rules.
