I like the grunge music that they make overall. It's reminiscent of Nirvana but has a little more modern in it! My favorite songs here are definitely "The Preteneder", "Everlong", and "Hero". Despite my love for rock, I deterred from Foo Fighters for the longest time. It wasn't that I didn't like them, it was just that I didn't know about them. But one faithful day, I was wandering aimlessly around walmart with a pocketful of old giftcards I wondered would still work, I saw the cover and picked it up. I flipped it around and stared at it and finally decided to get it. Now I'm amazed and hooked. This thing is amazing!

I feel like the Lyrics fit the music very well! The singer molds his voice to the harmony (with the help of two or three overdubs I noticed). He goes from a somber, melancholy voice, to a violent scream in a few lines. The lyrics are clever in their songs and that's hard to come by in such a generic music world nowadays. Good.
Overall Impression — 10
This definitely reminds me of Nirvana (yes I'm aware he's their old drummer). I love "Everlong", "Hero", "Wheels", "Skin And Bones", "The Pretender". they're all great though! I enjoyed the entire album and it will fit well with my collection. I've had a few bad CDs in my lifetime that was a complete waste of money, but this one makes up for them all. I love it and I'm definitely going to buy the rest of their CDs! I would definitely go buy this CD again if it were stolen.
