I can't fault anything with this latest offering...I love it all..The Pretender just rocks (+ cool clip too). Next fav would be TCATS and IYH. I'm loving the Skin & Bones stuff too, but I suppose being 'older' you appreciate the accoustic as well as the rock...

I dont feel that ANYONE should be critcized or ridiculed for simply asking a question or voicing an opinnion. Everyone is different and see things with different eyes. We can all learn from others,when that ends life
will be over. So keep learning and be quick to listen . I remember a question in a movie " do you listen or do you wait to talk?"

no! summers end is one of my favorites. once and for all is very good too. they both should have been on there. (and no i don't think beaconsfield miners should have been cut because it makes my mom happy. lol)

i like it, but there should be a better ending track, i dont like it ending with once and for all, its not the kind of track that makes you feel wow at the end, and once and for all is more middle of the album stuff, something like new way home would be good, but i doubt that the foos will be doing that any time soon. seda would be good too.

first of all, i dont understand why we (americans) didnt get Once and for all on the cd.

also i noticed that many of the songs start of slow, like string picking and then take off

Smile Re: If you must, criticize ESPG here...

Ive gotta say, i do like the album, I dont believe it to be one of the best, but It is nowhere near being a shit album. I think the problem is that it is so.... how do i say this... un-foo! I also think that it is showing the boys, and Dave especially, to be more grown up... less child like in their way of thinking. I mean look... all the foos are now fathers, and that forces you to grow up, and i think this is reflected in their music! I feel that some of the songs are very poinient. Home in paticular stands out as being very deeply emotional on Daves part. I read in Kerrang that Dave says that he will never play it live, because it would make him breakdown. Also, I think that the fact that Dave is now very settled, influences his music. In the previous albums he has always been dealing with some issue or another, whether it be the breakdown of his first marrage, his feelings about Kurt (Im thinking Friend of a friend) or other traumatic situations. When something creative comes from so deep down, with such a deep seated emotional tangling, the outcome is bound to be different, depending on the mood of the writter. I think this shows the band as they are, more grown up, more emotionally settled and more family orientated than ever before.

Very raw and emotional.

It's way, way better than IYH or One By One.

But...


Home, Long Road to Ruin, Statues and Summer's End are all average or poor. Come Alive is pretty boring after a while.

I feel that the production is too similar to IYH. The drums sound like they're mic'ed exactly the same and the rhythm guitar does as well... and so do the vocals.

Quality songs, great energy though.

Just kinda wish they went on a Jack Endino/Steve Albini kick or something, though.

I really love the crisp tenuous feel of TINLTL, and of course the awesome awesomeness of the first album's production (which Probot sounds curiously like).

YES! Albini to produce "next" album if there ever is one. Lets have a raw rock album.

ESPG just doesn't cut it for me, it's not a bad album, it's just mediocre

My critisizm of the ESPG album is that it is generally not heavy enough. I like the Foos heaver songs and this album, alot like TINLTL is way to mellow.

Don't get me wrong ESPG has its moments like The Pretender and Erase Replace but much of the album is far to softy softy for my liking.

Music can still be heavy and melodic at the same time.
