25 Sep 2007

Just FYI- Today is the release day of the Foo Fighters' new album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. As a professional editor, I'm a little bummed that they didn't incorporate the serial comma after Patience, but I won't let that affect their status as, IMHO, the most hard-rockin' MF-ing band in the history of the known universe. Check out that cover ... a tube from an old-school amp morphed with a bomb -- pointing (no, aimed ) directly downward, ready to launch and/or detonate. How cool is that?! It's like: Be warned -- we're presently going to drop some absolutely incendiary (as Cameron Crowe would surely put it) rock on your ass. And from what I've heard so far ( link to the first single, The Pretender , on YouTube), they've done just that. Pure napalm, mi compadres -- and that's just the way we like it here at BSUWG. God damn, I can't wait to own this CD!

Foo Fighters do not get enough credit for being the band that they are because of always being in the shadow of Nirvana. But for me Nirvana never lived up to the hype. Foo Fighters are superior in avery way except cultural signifigance. IMHO.
