Default Best Foo Album

Now that we all have heard In Your Honor, out of the famous albums:
In Your Honor
One By One
Colour & The Shape
There Is Nothing Left To Lose
Foo Fighters

Which one do you like most and why?

Personally, I love the new album but im not sure if it can match songs like Times Like These and Everlong so its tough call between One By One and Colour & The Shape.

The Color And The Shape. Period.

This album is still my favourite all these years later. While each new Foos album has grown on me and I have my favourite tracks from each, their second album still carries so many amazing tracks that it's a tough one to beat in my book.

Everlong, My Hero, Walking After You, February Stars, Up In Arms ... I could go on.

I'm loving the acoustic side of IYH, especially Virginia Moon, i've never heard the jazzy side of Dave, but seriously, the finished product is excellent.

I'm fucking lovin IYH. After the dissappointment of OBO, I spent all of yesterday with a big grin on my face!

...But TCATS is still top of the pile for me, but I'm not ruling out the possibility that IYH may steal it's crown.

I can't wait for them to come out at Reading to In Your Honor

Its hard to pick out my favorite album. I guess its Nothing Left to loose in your honour and then colour and shape and foo fighters. but they're all pretty even.

Nothing Left to loose will always hold a special place for me because It's the record I always pull out when I go flying.

I can't really say right now... since IYH is new, I'm into it right now, but I might change my mind later... but for now:

1. IYH
2. CATS
3. Self-Titled
4. TINLTL
5. OBO

I guess.

What do you people have against One by One.... really...

It's a fucking awesome album, it has All my life, Low, Times like these, Tired of You, and... more. Yeah, all the songs on this album rock. I think it's an album where the foo's changed their style a bit, the good way, though... and to me it sounds like they continued it on the IYH Rock CD...

I don't know alot of One By One wasn't as good as I would have hoped. The good songs on One By One in my book were probably Halo One By One maybe Low and Tired of you. Luckily I got a cd full of bsides and stuff to tide me over untill IYH came out.

Hmm, OBO was the first album to make the foo's slightly famous here in the Netherlands. I think OBO is like the Nevermind of the Foo Fighters. And just like with Nevermind, the "real" fans of the band don't like this album, or at least not as much as they should.

Well, I'm just gonna wait until you guys pull your heads out of eachothers' collective asses and see that it's their most fucking awesome album.
