Recording information: Robert Lang Studios, Seattle, WA (10/17/1994-10/23/1994); Robert Lang's Studio, Seattle, WA (10/17/1994-10/23/1994).Photographers: Jennifer Youngblood; Charles Peterson; Curt Doughty; Jeff Ross. Dave Grohl's opening post-Nirvana salvo, FOO FIGHTERS seems merely ordinary only in the wake of the historic, sweetly abrasive sensations that his previous band was famous for. Full of both lilting summer-breeze melodies and search-and-destroy guitar blasts, it helps present the case that Grohl's punk-pop blueprint just might be as forward-minded as Kurt Cobain's was, if slightly less grungy and a bit more blue-collar. Arriving at its destination by coupling pure '60's guitar-pop with the hyperkinetic pace of hardcore, FOO FIGHTERS takes most of its song-hooks for a joyous high-speed ride. Tracks such as the prankster-ish kiss-off, "This Is A Call," and the meditative-but-bitter "Good Grief" are perfect pop nuggets, with turbo-jet guitars propelling them. There are brief respites from such reckless rolling: the glammy verse-chorus-bridge of "Alone + Easy Target," the near-folky "For All The Cows," the sweetly Squeeze-like "Big Me." Yet, these are only refueling stops for Grohl (who recorded most of the album alone) before he turns the engines back on and blows through alterna-pop's speed limits. Named after UFO-like apparitions that U.S. fighter pilots claimed to have seen during World War II, FOO FIGHTERS chooses to ignore Grohl's tumultous real-life connections (there are few, if any, kiss-and-tell. see more...

I have loved the Foo Fighters ever since Dave Groll branched out on his own after Nirvana was over. I was so impressed with the first album in which he played all of the instruments. Over the years my obsession with the Foo Fighters has become even greater. I have seen them live numerous times. This particular album is one of my favorites although it is really hard to pick a favorite because they really are all good

I'm favorite band of all time. So glad that Pat Smear is back with the band. This is a gold standard of what rock should be. Love that that have developed as a band but had retained their "sound" and point of view

I think the Foo fighters suck, I mean, you think Dave would have gotten much more from nirvana and made a way better band than this one. Ever long is a good song though

I love his album so much it's one of my favorite Foo Fighter's releases. It's differently different from the rest and stands on it's own as one of the best.
