In Your Honor by the Foo Fighters is a high energy, sometimes rageful set of songs. Songs such as "The Last Song" are the rageful part. The album stays high energy from the first song to the last. This 2 disc set is worth the money. Among the album's singles are "DOA" and "Best Of You," but if you're really looking for some great music, the rest of the album holds many surprises. The Foo Fighters show that they really are a band instead of what people believe to be some training wheels for Dave Grohl's musical genius.
Lyrics — 10
Dave Grohl has always been a good lyricist. Nothing too emotional yet the lyrics aren't so ridden with metaphors that you ponder them all day. Grohl basically sings with screams the whole album but in this case it sounds amazing. The lyrics go with the lyrics like baseball goes with America. That's something you never have to worry about Dave Grohl. It seems he stole some of Kurt Cobain's tricks when he wasn't looking. The high energy and rageful lyrics can attract fans from any genre whether you're a mourning emo fan or a pissed off punk.
Overall Impression — 9
In Your Honor is definately one of the best albums of the year. Songs like "The Last Song," "DOA," and "Best Of You" offer a great CD to trash about your room to. Being the 2nd best Foo Fighter album ever (behind "The Color And The Shape") is not an easy feat seeing as they bring great music year after year since their debut album in 1995. I'd buy a 100 copies of this album just in case I lost a few. There's nothing bad about this album. However, if you're looking for something to enjoy a glass of wine to in the library, you won't find it here. But to all those who want something that'll get their rage out, buy this album.
