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.

Well Generator isnt the best song on TISNTL but this CD is well worth getting if only for the interview on it! Fraternity is a great song ill give the Foo's that, and the live recordings are fantastic. The interview is the best part of the CD, with Dave pretending to be drunk to the producer! You have to buy it to watch it!

tracklist. 1.generator [album version] 2.learn to fly [live] 3.stacked actors [live] 4.breakout [live]
generator is not one of the outstanding tracks on the album, but was a good choice for a single, as it is alot better when not in comparison with stacked actors and breakout [album versions]
the live versions are good to hear, but maybe not as good as the album versions

This is fooking awesome! 2 July 2001
By Gabriel L Saenz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great CD single. Hard to find in stores, buy it here because chances are if you do find it in a store, it will be more expensive than here. Bonus tracks Fraternity and the live version of breakout are wonderful. The foo just keeps on gettin' better, I'm telling you man.

Oh, my god, I didn't know singles could get this good 2 April 2000
By "larry_mcgee" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Oh, oh, oh! I absolutely love this single! The songs are: 1. Generator (kinda obvious) 2. Ain't It The Life (live & acoustic from 2metre Sessions) 3. Floaty (Live & Acoustic from 2metre Sessions) 4. Fraternity (totally kickin' new song) 5. Breakout (LIVE)
Okay, Generator is great, I have new appreciation for "Ain't It The Life" It's a truly magnificent version of it. I never have liked "Floaty" so that's a waste of a track, but it's still better than the album cut.
Track 4 is the SOLE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD BUY THIS SINGLE! I absolutely love "Fraternity"! It captures that great Foo sound, and why it didn't make the new album and Live-In Skin did is beyond me. It really is my favorite song (Fraternity).
"Breakout (Live)" is kinda cheap, but it felt great hearing the audience sing along for the whole song. The Foos are sooooooo unappreciated, and it made me feel good knowing that there are thousands of Foo fans out there.

Generator may be the weakest track- class 12 Feb. 2001
By "sixtymilesmile" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a limited 5-track EP by the group, featuring a well-chosen mixture of tracks. Generator itself may tbe the weakest song on TINNTL- it isn't bad, but only the guitar line has any power and it seems over-reliant on the vocoder effect. The acoustic tracks are lovely, and definately sound a lot like REM and Radiohead respectively. Personally I prefer Floaty, but its a tough call. Fraternity was left off the album, I'd say not a wise move as its a catchy and powerful song, not exactly their heaviest track but neat (that comes from someone who loves both ends of their output - my two favourites Foos songs are Monkey Wrench and Walking After You). The live version of Breakout is good as well, the way the crowd sing along emphhasising the track's popularity. This is a great EP, and a must for fans.

Don't Bother 24 Jun. 2000
By undefined - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
All of the songs are solid, but they're all on the album. Yeah, they are live versions, but what's the big difference. They aren't even as good as the studio recording. If you're going to put out a single, it should usually have some new songs on it. Uggg....what a waste of money. The ECD isn't something worth paying for either. Do yourself a favor and just stick with the album. If you want some cool b-sides, then go for the "My Hero" single.

love it 26 April 2000
By E. B. Shaffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm an avid Foo Fighters fan, and when I was in England I had an opportunity to buy this CD which I instantly took up. I actually ran into the store, grabbed the CD out of the man's hand, threw a 5 pound note at him and ran out (it was really only 3.99, but I needed the disc!). It was also coincidental that I had my CD player there with me, and I was grooving the rest of the way home. I love every track on there, ESPECIALLY the Breakout live track, because of the fans and just how so excellently the band plays the song. The two acoustic songs, AITL and Floaty, are beautiful as well. So much so that a friend of mine borrowed this from me just so he could play it for his girlfriend on a date they had. Needless to say, the date went well :) The unreleased track Fraternity has been criticized by some, but it is undeserved. It's a great pop song with a nice guitar solo in the middle, and the interesing part is that Taylor Hawkins, the drummer, sings the song. I guess he's taking Dave Grohl's example, huh? Anyway, buy this CD. They are individually numbered (mine's 04053), and going fast!
