Foo Fighters - Back and Forth


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


Just what is it that you do when the world catches up with you? Dave Grohl's pre-Foo Fighters career was about rebellion and breaking moulds, whether it was in Washington DC hardcore bands (Mission Impossible, Scream) or in Nirvana. When he stepped out from behind the drum kit and put out Foo Fighters, Grohl revealed a nifty knack for a tune and great ear for a guitar riff (and the drumming was still among the best around). He kept it up for the band's second album and the There Is Nothing Left To Lose is firmly in the same vein. That can be a good thing--there are no stinkers here--but after a pair of successful albums that have established him firmly as a talent in his own right, Grohl sometimes feels like he's on autopilot. (And the drumming, for a change, is unremarkable.) Maybe the album should have been called There's Nothing Left To Prove. --Randy Silver

I have been a fan of the Foo Fighters music for a long time and fell in love with 'The Colour and the Shape'. Although 'Nothing Left to Lose' does have a different sound from their previous material and incorporates some slower rock tunes, I have not been disappointed. As usual, there are the expected songs to be played at full volume such as 'Generator'which has the fantastic combination of guitar riffs, drum beats, great lyrics and the unique Grohl voice which fans have come to expect, but the likes of 'Aurora' and 'Ain't it the Life' really demonstrate the Foo's diversity as a band and thier fantastic songwriting capabilities. I would reccommend this album to anyone - I can't wait to see what the Foo Fighters offer us next...

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply a very good album 15 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
The first Foo Fighters song I heard was Breakout, about 2 years ago on a Kerrang! CD. Since then I had heard nothing of them, until they recently released All My Life and their new One By One album. As much as I like the single, I had heard rumours that the new album wasn't up to scratch, so when seeing this in the shops, I thought I'd give it a shot.
Whether their new album is great or c**p, I'm glad I bought this one. My title sums it up. It's hard to fault this album. Whilst nothing mind-blowing, each song is catchy, reasonably loud and makes you want to sing along/headbang/jump about a lot. From the fantastic opening of Stacked Actors, to the loud Breakout and then the softer, more pop-rock Learn To Fly. Each song on the album is neither too hard or to soft, and each one has some decent guitar work. Don't get the wrong impression, this isn't an average album, it's a great one: nothing new or special, but each track is solid and catchy, and Stacked Actors and Live-In Skin are both brilliant.
I thoroughly recommend this album to any rock fan, just after a solid rock album to add to their collection. Whether it's better than their other 2 albums I can't say, but you can't go far wrong with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something Extraordinary 10 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
I actually got this cd by accident. i headed up to the tills to pay for an offspring cd in "Sanity" years ago. i got home opened the box and this cd was there, i thought id give it a try anyways before i took it back to exchange it for the offspring cd and to be honest i wasnt all that impressed, i put that down to the fact that i was far to young to know truely kick ass music when i heard it.
In the end anyways i took this one back and got the offspring one and 'went back to reality' but it was when i got into the Foos first album (which i think is probably the best cd they'll ever make) that i thought i would invest in this, as i had heard lots of good things about it. As soon as i put it on 'Stacked Actors' hit me hard making me think "where the hell have i been?" and to be honest the whole album is like that, simply put... it makes you happy no matter what mood you're in!
Listening through the album as a whole leads you to a song that i think is the second best song (only just behind Everlong!) the Foos have ever recorded - M.I.A.
The album is very summery sounding as its all sorta light and breezy and jammed full with some excellent songs. Make sure though that if you do listen to the album as a whole you dont miss out on M.I.A as it truely is kick ass and caps off the album perfectly!
It doesnt really sound like the rest of the Foos records when you compare them but dont let that put you off, if you appreciate all kinds of music you're sure to be open-minded enough to like this cd, just take it as it is - a brilliant cd, a cd that any other band can only dream of making!

I hadn't really heard much of the Foo Fighters before buying this but after listening to it I am a massive fan. The excellent drumming on Breakout and grungy overtones of Stacked Actors give way to the mellowness of Mia. Guitar led rock has never sounded better although it may not sound much upon first listening to it, after a few more plays you'll be hooked and play it 'till the CD begins to skip. This is music that can both be played at full volume to appreciate its quality and played quietly to show its more thoughtful side. Generator is possibly the most finger tapping tune I've heard for a bit. Ignore anyone who says it doesn't match up --- IT'S AN ALBUM OF PURE QUALITY from a band that has found its identity!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different from the older albums 10 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Having both Foo Fighters albums already I decided to purchase there is nothing left to lose.After listening to the album my first thought was eh?.It's not a typical Foo Fighters album.It starts with the song Stacked Actors,a lively typical Grohl track which you expect.Following are the simply brilliant tracks Breakout and Learn to fly and the quirky sing-a-long Generator.However the album goes more mellow as the tracks go on.Aurora being a very laidback chillout sort of record,Next year (which many may have already heard) could be compared to a Sixpence none the richer track whilst Aint it the lfe sounds almost like a country record.Dont be put off though,although this seems to be a move away from the grunge,Nirvana era and dedicated fans of the previous albums may not like it straight away several listens of the album later and it wont be out of your cd player.Im not bored of it yet and doubt if you buy the album you will be too.
