This review is from: There Is Nothing Left To Lose (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!
