Foo Fighters: In Your Honor

Sound — 10
On first impression this CD sounds quite like every other Foo Fighters CD, it is only when you really get to grips with it and listen intently when you start to realise this is the best CD of the Foo's illustrious career. The rock CD although on first listen through has no stand out tracks the title track 'In Your Honour' is the heaviest thing they have ever accomplished and the single 'Best Of You' is up there with 'Learn To fly' or 'Breakout'. The acoustic CD is a very beautiful thing indeed, a blend of gentle guitar and heartfelt vocal performances given by Dave Grohl, the stand out track on this side is definentley 'Virginia Moon', Norah Jones makes a perfect foil for Dave Grohl's more gravely tones.

As soon as you switch the play button on your CD player you can tell these are some of the most heartfelt and deep lyrics that Grohl has ever written, be it about his friends in Nirvana on 'Friend Of A Friend' or about a witnessed suicide on 'Miracle', you can tell he has worked hard and polished his songwriting skills.

Overall Impression — 10
This is a Foo's album of the very highest quality and it makes a refreshing change for Grohl to let Taylor Hawkins take over on 'Cold Day In The Sun', which he does superbly. This is one for every Foo fan out there it is a must have for the collection.
