Sound — 10
The first disc has a good tenpo, fast-paced sound to it. With good songs such as best of you and resolve, it is overall amazing. The second disc-WOW. Here, dave grohl releases his inner self with amazing songs with amazing sound. Miracle, what if I do, and over and out are the three most amazing songs on it. That's not to say that the other songs aren't good. It's truly the perfect harmony of fast and slow, heavy and soft, and of guitar and voice.

Here, dave can easily determine what to sing, and when. the lyrics make sense, and have a deep meaning. best of you- here, dave sings like he never has before. loud, long, and hard. he really forces it, and that is what makes a good singer. The singing goes perfectly with the guitar, and he can also make the listener believe what he believes. Although, at times, he can get the song up it; s own ass with meaning, and that can make it annoying, at times.
Overall Impression — 9
Yes, it can get sappy, and even fruity, but it makes up for it with simple yet effective riffs. So, I think this album is one of the best ever, after Led Zeppelin IV, Nevermind (nirvana, another Dave Grohl project) and The Jime Hendrix "Are You Experienced?" album. Bravo, Dave Grohl. Bravo!
