Foo Fighters: One by One

Overall Impression — 10
Finally the Foos comeback with the follow up to 1999's "There is Nothing left to lose" and lay "One by One" on the table. There was talks of a break up with the band when Grohl went to play drums with QOTSA, and the fourth studio album was looking in doubt. But this was just a rumour as the foos are stil together strong as ever, and sounding as good as ever. The album opens with the superb All my Life, a great big chunk of pure rock music the way it should be, next comes Low a weird, dark and clostraphocic sound with calm vocals and apowerful guitar and drums, this is then followed by Have it all, which has a catchy chorus and riff where nobody could refuse to smile. Next up on the agenda is the fantastically written Times like these, an emotional song which is straight to the point. Disenchated Lullaby follows and is a powerful song with a great grunge chorus ("I may be scattered, a little shattered, what does it matter, no one has a fit like i do") its a great song. Now its time for possibly one of the greatest songs to come from the Foo Fighters, Tired of you with the help of guitarist legend Brian May this song is slow and the vocals are quite haunting, truly footastic.Now for Halo, great song, great lyrics, what else can i say. Next up is probably the weakest song from one by one but by no means is it a bad one, overdrive a pop punk tune which is very catchy and cute. Next is another beautiful song and another of Grohls greatest, Burn Away. And finally the album is finished off with the epic Comeback playing for almost 8 minutes a fantastic song which finished off a fantastic album. One by one is evidence of the foo fighters growing as a band and the arent stopping any time soon. Definetly buy this album I can garuntee you will not be disapointed.
