This is what they have been making since '95. Boring generic rock. I wish Kurt Cobain wasn't dead. The world would be a better place without this boring music.

this is such a great album. how rare it is to find a cd that you do not feel the need to skip through half the songs. they are well thought out, creative, and very engaging. my jaw just about hit the floor when i first heard "the pretender." i keep putting that song on repeat! "let it die" and "come alive" are so laden with hooks you can't stop listening to them. the "ballad" piece is just the kind of song to sit back and listen to. if you play guitar, you will enjoy this even more. i'm a music lover (heck, i'm studying to be a music teacher!) and for an album to jump so quickly to the top of my daily list of music is something phenomenal. buy this album! you'll love it!

This is one of my favorite albums, and is undoubtedly the Foo Fighters' finest, most refined, most mature cut yet. Gracefully seesawing between woodsy, soulful ballads and songs (Statues, Summer's end, Come Alive, etc) and gripping, ballsy rock songs (Long Road to Ruin, The Pretender, Let it Die to name a few), you really get the best of both Foo worlds here. David Grohl has thought out of the box and proved his true prowess in composition, sonic perfection, timing, and band synthesis. Compare Echoes, Silence, Patience, and Grace to their title album, Foo Fighters and note the difference: raw, slightly immature Nirvana ripoff neo-punk(though classic and good in its own way, yes, a ripoff) versus a glorious melding of style, combined effort, enthusiasm, and excellent experience! I await another Foo album with bated breath.

One of the best records release this year. Every track stands on it own. A must have for any music fan.

I think that in order to fully appreciate what the Foo Fighters accomplish in this new album, one really has to listen to their previous album, In Your Honor. While that album firmly segregated the loud, passionate side and the quite, acoustic sides on separate discs, Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace is very much the synthesis of the best part of both discs of In Your Honor, which instead of staring out with "In Your Honor", a declaration of how they felt about the world, "The Pretender" asks us instead to look at who we are. With tracks like "Let It Die", "Come Alive" and "But Honestly", which start out quiet and acoustic but build to truly impressive heights, and are that much more effective as a result of the buildup, the Foos have truly integrated the two sides of their music, and the final product is truly impressive. Aside from the building tracks, the Foos also bud out and attempt Southern-style rock in "Summer's End", and "Statues", a thoughtful reflection accompanied by a solemn-sounding piano. By the time "Home" rolls around and the album title is spoken it strikes you that this album really is just that: The echoes of their past work, the silence that accompanies the introspection that went into the album, the patience to try new things, and the grace to take life's blows with a smile.
