This short but sweet Greatest Hits compilation features some of the most memorable songs from Dave Grohl and co. They have been fairly ruthless in choosing the songs which they deem worthy of this compilation, but when you look at the songs you can see that they are some of the best. The only real puzzler is the absence of DOA from the track list. All the other hit singles are here, Big Me, Everlong, Monkey Wrench, My Hero, Breakout, Times Like These, All My Life and Best Of You. These are essential tracks to delve into for newbies to the band, and will provide the basis for further the band's expansive back catalogue. (Which will be rewarding because there are many other great songs that are not present on this album.)

As for previously converted Foo fans, there are a few goodies on here for us too. Two new tracks Word Forward and Wheels, an acoustic version of Everlong, and the track Skin and Bones, only previously officially available on the Skin and Bones live album. (Although if you don't fancy forking out on a whole load of old tracks just to hear a few new ones, maybe you're best off buying them separately on Amazon MP3 or iTunes.

I received this in the post today even though its not supposed to be released for another couple of weeks or so (nice one Amazon)

But all I can say about this album is that its truly amazing it does exactly what it says on the tin its their "Greatest Hits" which even if your an avid Foos fan like myself or even an occasional rocker this album is a must, the new songs "Wheels" and "Word Forward" are true songs in the style of Foo and are amazing, it even contains a nice acoustic version of "Everlong" which is a nice little treat.

As this is the Deluxe Version it also contains the DVD with all their music videos on it, so the times of browsing YouTube for your favourite Foo Fighter video are over, all in good DVD quality and as again contains a few extras from their live shows.

Pure and simply this is a great listen where a band has not tried to include too many tracks to please everyone but the pick of the crop from each album. I must confess to not being an avid fan - I bought the first album and despite liking every single I've heard, never got round to buying another one till now - but may be that makes me more objective - I can simply say I thoroughly enjoy every song on this album! I especially love the new song 'Wheels' and if I was to make one gripe, that would be the omission of 'I'll stick around', simply as it was their first hit single and a notable hit that introduced Foo Fighters to the world (and a darn good song).

The deluxe edition is nicely packaged too and I have been thoroughly enjoying revisiting some of their videos ('Learning to Fly' is still hilarious and 'Everlong' artfully spooky and nightmarish) and appreciating some rarer footage -'Times like These' acoustic and 'Skin and Bones' live.

I am now much closer to being a fan of this band and that is one goal of every greatest hits surely - the truly converted already have all the albums!

Dave Grohl is easily one of the biggest musical icons for an entire generation based on his time with Nirvana as their drummer, to eventually forming Foo Fighters after Kurt Kobain's demise. So here we are, 14 years and 6 albums later, and they have finally decided to put out a greatest hits package.

This deluxe greatest hits package detailing the history of the band includes a 16 track CD, 14 of which are taken from the bands back catalogue (although Everlong appears twice, with both the original and an acoustic version), with two brand new tracks, and a 21 track DVD of videos and live performances. It is of course worth remembering that this is a greatest hits package, and not a best songs package, which is why there are no album tracks present.

Some of the tracks on the DVD are simply a video or a live performance of songs that are already on the CD, but there are several that some might say were missing from the main CD, such as Next Year, Resolve, DOA, and Low amongst others, which provides the incentive for picking up this deluxe package. The only truly notable exception from the entire package is The One, but I can understand the reasons for not including it due to the nature of its release in this country as it remains a collectors item. Including it on a greatest hits package would tarnish the value for anyone lucky enough to have one of the very few copies released on these shores.

As for the package itself, it comes as a small book rather than a normal plastic CD case, with the CD and DVD slotted inside the front and back covers respectively. The book itself simply contains various pictures and bits of lyrics from down the years, with a message from Dave Grohl at the end.

A must buy for fans with the cd comprising 16 tracks and a really good mix from the band's history.Included is a sublime acoustic version of Everlong,Learn To Fly,the adrenalin rush that is The Pretender,Monkey wrench and the fantastic Times Like These.Sure there could be another 16 and my only quibble would be the omission of Come Alive.
However the dvd is a real bonus - I know you can see them on you-tube,etc but there is a lot of fun to be had from the continuous play of 20+ videos with Dave and the guys(and assorted pals)having some real fun with themselves and the promo video format -got to smile with J Black on Low and Learn to Fly,Everlong is a really clever vid,All My Life is a cute sendup of their boundless energy and The Pretender sends a thrill every time I see it.
Excellent Value.
