5.0 out of 5 stars A magnificent effort, 6 Sep 2004
With this album Dave Grohl moved out of Kurt Cobain's shadow. Long remembered as The Drummer In Nirvana, Dave showed his talents to lie much deeper in his work with the Foo Fighters. Having played almost every note on the debut album, Grohl recruited a full band for this collection, but still ended up performing most of the drums and guitars as well as the vocals. Songs like Everlong, My Hero, Monkey Wrench and New Way Home adorned a Pixies-esque treat that turned out to be one of the best albums of the nineties.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite album, 6 Sep 2004
This review is from: Abbey Road (Audio CD)
The Beatles' penultimate release, and last ever recording, is to this day my favourite album of all time. The band showed great maturity in tracks such as Here Comes The Sun and The End, whilst maintaining their sense of novelty and fun with Octopus's Garden and Maxwell's Silver Hammer. The emotional close to the collection takes on a much deeper feeling when the following year's demise of the group is remembered. Most of the tracks are only known to Beatles fans, but this is an album that nobody should be without.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hideously overlooked, 6 Sep 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 7800 Fahrenheit (Audio CD)
Ask any critic, they'll tell you that 7800 Fahrenheit is Bon Jovi failing to find their feet, a stutter in their career after the promise of the debut and before the success of Slippery When Wet. But ask any fan, and they'll either say it's a vital step in the career of the group, or as some would say, it's amongst their best work.
I'm of the latter view. The production may be shabby, and this in my opinion is why so many critics fault this collection. But how anyone can deny the quality of tracks like Only Lonely, In & Out Of Love and Always Run To You is beyond me. The band is tight, the emotion intense and the melodies strong. Richie Sambora displays the sort of fluent guitar work that would become a trademark of the band's sound, and the other band members display a confidence that suggests they knew the world was theirs for the talking. It took until the following year, and the Desmond Child-assisted hits Livin' On A Prayer and You Give Love A Bad Name, before Jovi would achieve worldwide superstar status. But this excellent and highly underrated album should not be overlooked by anyone with even a slight interest in the work of the group.
