Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
During the last dark days of Nirvana in 1994, tapes of Dave Grohl’s solo demos circulated among alt rock royalty — Greg Dulli commented positively about them in more than one place — but it never seemed that these home-made tapes would be the origin of one of the biggest modern rock bands of the post-grunge era.

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Dave Grohl’s sixth album fronting post-grunge rockers Foo Fighters finds him softening his game somewhat, although not in the manner of 2005’s In Your Honour, which countered the Foos’ stadium metal moves with a second disc of acoustic songs. Rather, Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace sees Grohl taking cues from his beloved Led Zeppelin, penning a record that incorporates muscular rock shapes with piano ballads ("Statues"), picked acoustic moments ("Come Alive") and free-wheeling, classic-tinged jams like "Summer’s End"--a song about romantic dalliances in the "sweet Virginia countryside". While it’s undoubtedly a mature sort of record for the Foo Fighters, however, that’s not to say that their edge has been blunted. With the band reunited with producer Gil Norton, whose skill for quiet/loud dynamics did a lot for 1997’s The Colour and the Shape, tracks like "The Pretender" and "Erase/Replace" are muscular, dynamic rockers that balance subtle, atmospheric moments with epic bursts of rage. The track "Cheer up Boys (Your Make-Up Is Running)", meanwhile, feels like a jibe at the emo hordes who’ve tried, but failed, to dislodge Grohl’s crown. It’s the sound of a band growing into middle age gracefully. --Louis Pattison

Product Description

Having commemorated their tenth anniversary with a year-plus run commencing with In Your Honor (a double album the New York Times called an "unexpected magnum opus"), sold out rock arena shows and a toned down intimate theater trek, and a headlining gig at London's Hyde Park for a crowd of 85,000, the question looms larger than any in the Foo Fighters' career to date: What do they do for an encore?!? The answer comes in the form of "The Pretender," the first single from the band's sixth studio album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, out on Roswell/RCA. Produced by Gil Norton, who last worked with the band on 1997's double-platinum The Colour and The Shape (recently reissued in deluxe 10th anniversary form), Dave Grohl, bassist Nate Mendel, drummer Taylor Hawkins and guitarist Chris Shiflett have crafted a 12-track milestone that showcases and reconciles the band's every strength and sensibility in the most complex and confident Foo Fighters album to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 13 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
After listening to the album four times in a row, what stands out the most is that Grohl obviously took a lot away from the acoustic tour they did in support of the second (quieter) half of `In Your Honour' (which provided the material for 2006's live album and DVD `Skin and Bones'). The new acoustic arrangements of old Foo Fighters songs must have sparked something inside Grohl's head because `Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace' is full of orchestral touches that provide a whole new dimension to his songwriting.

Of course there are the standard rock anthems (albiet with new acoustic/orchestral touches) that you expect from Foo Fighters, like first single "The Pretender", "Erase Replace", "Long Road to Ruin" (my guess for next single #1), and "Cheer Up Boys (Your Makeup's Running)" (my guess for next single #2). But what really stands out are the mellower acoustic/piano heavy tracks that make up the majority of the album.

"Let it Die" starts out as a quiet, gentle acoustic solo piece with only Grohl's vocals and an acoustic guitar. But it slowly builds, growing more and more urgent until around the two-minute mark you're hit with a few bars of loud, crunch-heavy guitar leading into a full-on rock chorus/outro. This is Dave Grohl taking Jimmy Page's concept of light and shade to the extreme.

"Come Alive" is another example of this light and shade concept, building from a mid-tempo melodic piece to balls to the wall, bombast and howling rock.

"Stranger Things Have Happened" is purely acoustic with Grohl singing over one guitar, with a second guitar joining in occassionally to add accents with some nice acoustic licks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dave, Taylor, Nate and Chris done good this time 17 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is the sixth studio album from the 'Foo Fighters'. I have followed these guys since their debut back in 1995, and they have developed their sound substantially since then.

While it's probably true that their finest hour was 1997's 'The Colour And The Shape', they haven't had any album that's come close to it....until now.

Working once again with Gil Norton (Who, incidentally, produced 'The Colour and the Shape'), he's brought back the things that some previous Foos records since maybe forgot- a bit of punk and all-out soulful rocking anthems.

And 'Echoes, Silence, patience & Grace' has all of this in bucketloads.

There's variation here. It's a solid progression since their last album, 'In Your Honour'.

It opens with the raucous anthem singalong, 'The Pretender'. It starts disturbingly like Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven', but it develops into anything but that. It develops into a punk verse before exploding in the chorus and maintaining that sequence throughout afterwards for four and a half minutes. 'Let It Die' is similar, in the sense that it starts acoustically, before exploding into a stadium-rock singalong. 'Erase/Replace' is different. There is no acoustic intro here at all. It simply feeds in the guitars from the beginning before bursting into punk verses and a mammoth singalong chorus nicely sandwiched in between. 'Long Road To Ruin' is more mainstream, and an obvious future release. The chorus is infectiously catchy and will be a crowd favourite at stadiums around the world, I'm certain of that.

'Come Alive' is perhaps the most spectacular track on the album apart from 'The Pretender'. It's over five minutes long and it's somewhat similar to 'Let It Die'.

I've never given the Foo Fighters the time or day, just never really got into them post Nirvana. Bought this album upon recommendation by a Foo fan. Upon first listen (whilst clearing out the garage) I knew there was something very important happening to me. Quite simply at that moment I became an instant Grohl/Foo fan. Having now backtracked on most of the Foo's catalogue from my own perspective, this is not only my favourite of theirs but quite possibly the most important 'rock' album in my CD collection and remains a permanent fixture in the car ! Love it Love it Love it. It's so good, I find it difficult to believe these aren't reworkings of old classics, but of course respect Dave Grohl's song writing abilities as well as his virtuoso performance abilities.

Wow, what a start! A strong contender for their best song to date, 'Pretenders' is a powerful fusion of two songs masterfully intertwined; fast and slow, heavy and delicate, pounding and soaring - just awesome. As the song progresses, the excitement builds with loud and quiet coming face to face, before its brought to a climax. Lets just have that one again, oh sorry better see what the rest of the album is like . . .

'Let it die' continues the great start to the album. This is a track that builds and builds, becoming stronger and heavier and more elaborate - this is what I love about Foo Fighters. You can feel the anger build up until the final line is wrenched of Dave Grohl "Why'd you have to go and let it die!!!". Another beautifully crafted bit of Foos magic.

'Erase/Replace' starts and ends sounding like it could be of a Bush album (perhaps Razorblade suitcase after 'Mouth'?) and has the same paced loud snappy drum beat. A great song, continuing the heavy start.

'Long Road To Ruin' is a catchy and melodic tune that slows the pace a little, but still a great mid-paced Foos track.

'Come Alive' is a fantastic track, not quite as superb as the first two, but it buds and then blossoms gloriously.

'Stranger Things Have Happened' is a rich and full bodied acoustic number, show casing Dave Grohl's vocal talents and demonstrating that the dramatic use of quiet meeting loud can work just as well with an acoustic guitar.

We are back on the gas again with 'Cheer Up, Boys (Your Make Up Is Running)', a more typical Foos sound.

'Summer's End' is a nice and easy going song and definitely conveys that relaxed warm summer's evening vibe. Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins play piano for this one.
