Foo Fighters - Back and Forth

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.

FOO FIGHTERS

BBC Review

You can't help feeling that Dave Grohl is a contender rather than a heavy weight champion. He can land the odd killer punch; he's disciplined, professional and has bags of energy and commitment. But maybe he lacks the touch of insanity or genius that you need to make a really classic rock album.

One By One starts brilliantly. First track "All My Life" must be the best thing he's ever done. With its atmosphere of claustrophobic sex, ghosts and frustration it sounds like some personal demons are being cast out. It's manic, tight and the guitars sound fabulous. It reaches deeper than the entertaining but lightweight pop grunge that the Foo Fighters have delivered up to now. And when the churning "Low" is followed by the high energy of "Have It All" and The Byrds meets Husker Du rush of "Times Like These" things are set up for a knockout victory.

Unfortunately they can't maintain this quality. Queen's Brian May adds some of his usual wailing guitar to "Tired of You". It sounds out of place and can't disguise the poor quality of the song. Grohl's lyrics sometimes let him down. And while "Lonely As You" packs a pretty hefty punch, "Overdrive" seems pretty inessential and "Burn Away" lumbers along. The final track "Come Back" is an epic that strains for classic status but sadly it doesn't quite come off.

There's about half a fantastic album here. Foo fans will love it. But so far Dave Grohl's best music has been made with or for other people. It's tough to say it but One by One doesn't change that. If Queens of the Stone Age had made room on their album for the best songs here we really would be talking about rock heaven. For now One By One is good, but it leaves you feeling just a little frustrated.

Following Dave Grohl's appearances this year on the Tenacious D album and as drummer on the new Queen of the Stone Age album, The ex-Nirvana man gets back to regular business with his band the Foo Fighters, and gets things going pretty quickly with rock anthem 'All My Life'.
'All My Life' is definitely the standout track, for being so heavy and for being so straight rock.
But don't get worried; there are a few more straight hard rock songs along this record as well.
'Times Like These' and 'Overdrive' stand tall above the other songs, and are as straight rock as 'All My Life'.
These are great rock songs, and mix well with the slower songs played in-between them.
This album is simply a rock album, and each song no matter how slowly it starts always soars into some sort of monstrous riff, or heavy sound, or provides a strong anthem like chorus that Grohl seems to pull off well with his powerful voice.
Every track is great, and is definitely Foo Fighters best work to date.
So if you’re a Foo Fighters fan don't hesitate in thinking about buying this, it really is great stuff.
Apart from the excellent album, the DVD that comes with this provides the funny still clip audio for 'The One' (which is a track that can only be found on the 'All My Life' single release or the Orange County soundtrack, so this is the only Foo Fighter album so far you'll hear it on), along with the unreleased video for 'Walking A Line', and the funny, but serious video for the leading track on this album, 'All My Life'.
The DVD also features a photo gallery of the band backstage, playing live and clips of them in the video for ‘All My Life’.
Going back to the CD, the inside case will give you a code to use on the Foo Fighters website to gain access to a secret site that contains exclusive songs.
So apart from the amazing album, this comes with plenty of extra features to have fun with.
Enjoy.

After reading the review about this being a copy protected disc, I wasn't sure whether to buy this album or the original version as I listen to a lot of my music on my mp3 player. I took the risk anyway as others had not mentioned it and am glad I did. Although the disc does say that it is copy protected, I had no trouble playing and ripping it to my pc using media player. It is a brilliant album and also includes a bonus disc which has some really good tracks on too. Do not miss out on this great bargain.

The Foo Fighters finally follow up their highly acclaimed 1999 album 'There Is Nothing Left To Lose' with One By One. The Foos are as solid as ever, playing and sounding like the rock band they want to be.
The album opens with the forceful All My Life, which is a pure slice of rock'n'roll fun. The driving powerful guitars hit home and this is an exhilarating ride. This song is quite heavy for the Foos and the next song, Low follows suit. Low is quite simply unique and quite simply brilliant. Continuing the dark edge present in All My Life, the powerful fuzzy guitars and tribal drumming are contrasted perfectly by Grohls calm vocals. Next on the agenda is Have It All, which reminds of the Foo of old and easily is one of the strongest songs on the album. The sweeping catchy chorus and riff is perfect single material. Another song, which reminds of old Foo Fighters material, is the beautifully written Times Like These. Emotional and straight to the point, again a standout track. Disenchanted Lullaby follows with quite a misleading title. The aggressive grunge chorus (“I maybe scattered, A little Scattered…….No-one has fit like I do”) helped by Hawkins forceful drumming makes this a powerful song. A certain Queen guitarist by the name of Brian May crops up on the next track Tired Of You and adds a nice guitar track but the most surprising part of this song is just how powerful Grohls vocals can be. We find Grohl in a thoughtful, reflective mood (“is this just desire, or the truth?”) but the vocals are truly haunting and send a shiver down the spine.
The second half of the album begins with the stadium-rock of Halo. A powerful desperate chorus and deep lyrics, Halo fits nicely after Tired Of You. Again a potential hit as a single.

It is August 24th 2002 in a Berkshire field. Dave Grohl, front man of the Foo Fighters is standing alone on the Reading Festival stage for the encore to another brilliant set. An adoring crowd is hearing, for the first time, the haunting Tired of You and realising two things: 1. Grohl's past as drummer of the legendary Nirvana, is irrelevant because at this moment, he has cemented himself as true rock legend in his own right. 2. His sabbatical from the Foos to drum for Queens of The Stone Age was no mistake, nor has it led to the predicted downfall of his band. In fact, the opposite has occurred: the experience has given him a ten-fold increase of urgency and aggression - and this album is all the better for it.
In the difficult position of writing a fourth album, Grohl has succeeded admirably, exemplified by the low-slung guitar genius of All My Life and the brilliant Low and Halo. Even the haunting ballad of Tired of You has undertones of real passion, and is possibly the best non-shouty song Grohl has ever written. It was a shrewd move to leave behind the polished more commercial sound of previous album There Is Nothing Left To Lose, and it is an ironic twist that with this album the band have been rewarded with their most commercial success yet. Although track Burn Away is a little limp and Overdrive is a less successful attempt to re-create previous track Generator, the rest of the album more than makes up for these slight inconsistencies.
