As the liner notes so cleverly state, The String Quartet Tribute to the Foo Fighters "throws the band into a time machine and presses 'Baroque'." This might be a stretch, but it's a great line nonetheless. Naturally, the prettiness and simplicity of "Big Me"'s melody does fine in string form and the addition of tasteful tambourine to "Learn to Fly" works

Overview

As the liner notes so cleverly state, The String Quartet Tribute to the Foo Fighters "throws the band into a time machine and presses 'Baroque'." This might be a stretch, but it's a great line nonetheless. Naturally, the prettiness and simplicity of "Big Me"'s melody does fine in string form and the addition of tasteful tambourine to "Learn to Fly" works wonderfully. But it might be "I'll Stick Around" that's the highlight of this record, since the violinists and cellists seem to respond to the song's churning bottom end and crashing chords with real abandon. There's a point in the chorus when the raw violin lead actually begins to approximate the unbridled fury of the original. This tribute won't rank among the Vitamin label's better string-quartet outings, but it might be of some interest to curious Foo completists.

The songs sound really cool, once you get passed the messed up Real Player samples. The clips aren't matched up with the correct songs: Big Me is really #1, All My Life is #9, Everlong is #8, Learn to Fly is #6, Times Like These is correct already, and the other ones I'm not sure about. The music itself is good though, it's cool to hear the Foo's songs on the strings.
