I've had a chance to spin the Foo Fighters' new double disc, and I am not quite sure what I think yet. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I heard Dave Grohl say someplace he thought it was his best work ever. Who knows, that could have been hearsay, but whenever I hear an artist make gradiose claims about his/her latest piece I am almost always disappointed.
I guess I need some more time to let all the songs soak in before I do an indepth review. Either way, I wouldn't say the album "sucks" by any means. I do wonder, however, if the masses would have been better served if rather than releasing a double album the Foos would have picked and chosen the best ten to twelve songs instead of releasing all twenty at once. But then again, Grohl is the musical genius, and I am merely an amateur music connoisseur.
Stay tuned for a more indepth review of In Your Honor soon...
