Even though this album didn't get as much momentum as their previous two albums, it still is a great album nonetheless. It shows a more melow and mature side to Foo Fighters, as all the songs are once again written by Dave Grohl (Something missing out of the second album, half of it was written by outside writers), and for the second time the album being recorded by an entire band. This time, just the three of them-Dave on vocals and guitar, the same drummer from the previous album, and the same bassist that is so far the original bassist of the band.
The album does have it's electricity though, with the first two songs having the massive over-dose of loudness and volume, 'Stacked Actors' and 'Breakout', give the album more variety. The next songs have a more mature sound. But if you're looking for love songs, don't look on this album-their aren't any. A good thing. The album is for any kind of alternative fan, since it is much more alternative than the previous albums. But you kind of get this scence that Foo Fighters is getting more serious and deep, the way they're supposed to be. Which I think is really cool for a band to do. Most of the songs are great in sound and have the quality that most bands now lack.
