Default E.s.p.g...

Is the best Foo Fighters album... Controversial, but
The Pretender
Let It Die
Stranger Things Have Happened
Home

Are 4 of the best songs the band has ever done.
Backed up with Come Alive/ But honestly. Long Road to Ruin, 3 solid Foos songs, I think the album is their best...

Everyone's got his own opinion 'bout Foos'best album,but how can't we consider songs as"Everlong",and "Best of You",just to mention 2 masterpieces of Grat Rock ever?

In my opinion every FF album has a solid lineup of songs and to pick one that's better than another is very difficult, and of course personal preference always plays a major roll in that choice..so if you think Echoes is the best then good for you

E.S.P.G is one of their weaker albums. It has a couple of strong songs but not much else. TCATS is far superior as is the debut, In Your Honor and TINLTL.

Couldn't have been a more fitting picture, haha.

Ahhhhhhh i'm just sticking with the live cover for the moment, among other things the guitar layers my friend added ended up being out of time at parts and too hard to work with, and I couldn't be bothered to re-do them, and also didn't want to offend him.

Aaw, that's a shame. And now? Playing all guitar parts for yourself the next time?

Yeah i'll be doing everything next time, i'm extremely particular with how I like things turning out. Original songs ahoy from now on! It's slightly foo-sy stuff but not in a sickly or obvious way to anyone but a die hard fan. Just found out that i'm travelling on an A320 on my holiday at the end of the month, none of my friends knew why I was so happy about that

Haha, lol. I also flew with an A320 last december, played the song all the way through, my (now ex) girlfriend was like: 'Again this song, wtf?'

But it'll be nice hearing your cover, and it's great that you'll be playing all parts, so it's more 'your' song But it can be tricky, with timing and everything. I record stuff too, mostly double guitar stuff, and sometimes timing gets me

Yes "The Pretender" is a perfectly great song but "Home" is where the Foos fail.

Clearly the limited edition album nobody knows about was their greatest output.

All their albums are amazing, but I like their first 2 the best because they were straight rock. I hope their next album are heavy like the first 2.

look at the bits of your text I highlighted.

now, answer this question: who are you and why do you think you can decide which is the best? adding a little "in my opinion" in front of those bits would take off all the arrogance you brought by talking like this.

another question: are you 12?
