I would rather like to give this CD a six, as it is more than just an album. The second album, which review you are reading right now, is actually the first. In a way. This time Dave provides his kicka$$ music with an actual band, his childhood/best friend on drums, and the bassist and rhythm guitarists that joined him on the tour for the self entitled first album (the bassist the only one staying-the rhythm guitarist would leave on this albums tour), showing that Foo Fighters is more than dedicated to their work-Dave Grohl is, anyway. The album is a mix of songs, not even one song sounds the same as the one before it, giving Foo Fighters a thumb up from me. Any Nirvana fan will enjoy at least three songs, garunteed. Or, if you didn't like or hated Nirvana, you'll probably like this CD anyway, since it sounds almost completely different from Nirvana. Dave Grohl shows himself in his music, and provides his audiance with energy, sometimes anger and frustration, love, exhaustion, and etc. The two songs that stand out on this album are 'My Hero' and 'Everlong', not quite ballads but kicka$$ songs that got great radio play. this album should be suggested for any kind of musical fan, as it provides all forms of rock.
