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

BBC Review

The buzz surrounding In your Honour is palpable.

A double album; one rock, one acoustic, it's an ambitious undertaking for a band like the Foo Fighters but the intrepid Grohl isn't concerned, hailing it their best album to date.

The single "Best Of You" was our first taste of what was to come and while the band came out of their corner fighting with a song full of Foo Fighters trademarks, the first punch fell short and failed to whip up the same frenzy as previous singles "All My Life" (2002) and "Learn To Fly" (1999).

Thankfully, "In Your Honour", the opening track on disk one, does what "Best Of You" should have and reminds the world what the band is capable of. A promising start, but in the same way "One By One" lost it's way after fifth track "Disenchanted Lullaby", this album also fails to maintain momentum.

"In Your Honour" and "No Way Back" stick out like sore thumbs on a disk that, sadly, is pretty forgettable.

Disk two is better and will undoubtedly prove to be the soundtrack to the summer for many. "Cold Day In The Sun" sees drummer Taylor Hawkins taking over vocal duties. The result is one of the album's best tracks and is as contagious as 1995's "Big Me".

But as poignant as this disk is, it suffers the same fate as the first, with only a few tracks lingering, particularly "Friend Of A Friend" and the infamous Norah Jones collaboration "Virginia Moon" which actually works surprisingly well.

In truth, In your Honour is disappointing because it doesn't live up to the hype. However, there are several songs on this double disk that stand head and shoulders above the rest and truly represent how the Foo Fighters have developed. It's just the songs in between that let the album down and despite declarations to the contrary, In your Honour doesn't surpass their debut or the sublime The Colour And The Shape.

Maybe if they had just taken the best tracks from each disc and put them on one album they might have succeeded. --Tanya Byrne

5.0 out of 5 stars Why do people moan about having too many songs?? 30 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
I had to write this review as I can't believe some of the things I've been reading on here about this excellent album. A lot of people are saying this should have been a12 or 15 track single CD album. It completely astounds me that people want LESS material on an album! After all how many single CD albums do you know of where every track is the best thing you've ever heard in your life? Even the best of albums can have it tracks you might just skip past when you don't have the time. For the regular price of around 8.99 we get two very high quality offerings from Dave Grohl and the boys. I have everything that Foo Fighters have ever released and I personally think this is right up there with the best of them. It also gives Dave the chance to show off the truly great voice he has when he's not doing the trademark Foos 'snarly' tracks!
CD1 goes along at a blistering pace, with standouts for me being Best Of You, DOA, Hell, Deepest Blues Are Black, End Over End and the best of the lot No Way Back. I have already seen them perform these tracks live, along with other classics such as Everlong and Monkey Wrench and they stand up perfectly alongside them.
As everyone knows by now, CD2 takes a more sedate path. It's perfect music for the heatwave we're promised shortly. Highlights include Virginia Moon (featuring Norah Jones), Cold Day In The Sun (sung by drummer Taylor Hawkins) and the hauntingly beautiful Razor (featuring the guitar god that is Josh Homme). It's a great contrast to the usual Foos offerings and I think they pull it off brilliantly.
I hope the band don't read some of the reviews this album has got (not just from Amazon customers I hasten to add.. even NME accused them of over-stretching!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Yet 27 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
A double album one rock, one acoustic creates the best one yet but only just. The rock side is amazing No Way Back, D.O.A., Best Of You and The Last Song are probably the best songs the foo's have done. In Your Honour (the song) is an epic of an opener and End Over End is a terrific album closer to settle all things rocking. The acoustic side however for me is boring with only Razor, What If I Do and Cold Day In The Sun being the only songs I can listen to without yawning but if your into acoustic songs you should find it good enough. I only wish they took the aformetioned acoustic song and put them on 1 disc and it could have been an classic. I fought about giving this review 4 stars but the rocking side is just so good it makes it 5 stars. I truly think this is the best album they've done & worthy to be in anyones cd racks.

5.0 out of 5 stars The One That Won Me Back 1 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is a breath of fresh air for a longtime Foo Fighters fan. A superb return to form after an album ("One By One") that had me wondering if the best of the Foo Fighters had already been and gone. For me, "One By One" was a little too polished and pop conscious, and apart from a couple of classics ("All My Life", "Have It All" and "Times Like These") it seemed like the Foo Fighters, only less so. This has been the trend since "The Colour and the Shape" which originally convinced me that they were a truly great group.
In my opinion "In Your Honour" moves the Foo Fighters into a new dimension, and makes them serious contenders for the most important Rock group of their generation. Back in force are the powerful anthems that they do so well. The arrangements are as skilled as you would expect from Dave Grohl, and the band is tighter than ever, with some superbly controlled drumming and simple, relentless basslines. Put simply, Disc One rocks!
On Disc One, highlights include the great singles "Best of You" and "DOA", and the wonderful "Hell" which features screaming, anguished vocals over a rhythmic, celtic inspired guitar melody line. At less than 2 minutes long it leaves you wanting much more. "Free Me" is a dark riff-based cracker, and its momentum builds perfectly to a truly great finish. "The Deepest Blues Are Back" enters with strummed acoustic guitar and surprisingly sweet vocals, and you might think it belongs on Disc Two, until the chorus explodes. "In Your Honour" and "No Way Back" are also excellent.
Disc Two is an entirely different animal, and it may take a bit of time for many fans to get into, but whilst it marks a totally new direction for the band (and one that doesn't always seem to work) it remains true to their sound, and rewards repeat listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good album 19 Jun 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In this day and age with all the preview hype it is easy to get worked up and then have all your expectations blown to pieces when you hear the album. This was on the buy list but got sent it as a birthday gift. Disc 1 is a good solid album in its own right, though not necessarily moving things forward much. Disc 2 also seems fairly regular stuff. A blinding one CD album could have been made from all this material but as it is there is insufficient progression to make the 2 disc set reach that level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best since "Learn To Fly" 5 Dec 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"It's a shame we have to die my dear / no-one's getting out of here alive / This time..."
These words, their obvious gloom notwithstanding, are not sung, nor heard as pessimistic or depressive. They are shouted in triumph, a triumph that elevates the listener beyond what can be expected from a modern rock cd. "In Your Honour" is the best rock album I have heard in a long, long time, and Dave Grohl obvious joy of music and the in-your-face optimism in spite of current event (but not in ignorance of them) lifts this album far and beyond the rest. And the combination with cd 2, with the more mellow, accoustic songs is a definite winner, show casing the bands reach, artistically and musically.
