Foo Fighters

Well, the Foo Fighters never seem to disappoint. I've heard it said that they are one of the most consistent rock bands currently out there and I would have to agree. Each and every album they turn out seems to be a pure and wonderful rock album. And, to be honest, we don't get those very much anymore. Even the venerable RHCP seem to dabble a bit much in psychedelic funk to be called simply a rock band.

The Foo Fighters do have a new album coming September 25, available for preorder now, and I'm going to go ahead and say that it will be the best rock album of 2007. There, I said it, and there's no going back now. And seriously, just check out the below video for the song The Pretender, and you'll have to agree; Dave Grohl and company are genius.

mp3 : Foo Fighters - The Pretender
mp3 : Foo Fighters - Keep The Car Running (Arcade Fire Cover)

The second track listed here is taken from the Foos recent performance on Radio 1 over yonder in Britain. They played a smashing set and are quite amazing on this cover of Arcade Fire.

Thank you for giving the Foo Fighters proper respect. So many blogs give them no attention because they are not an indie band.

The new album is very good. Not the best rock album of 2007, but very good nonetheless.

Is there a more tired, cliched pop-rock band today than the Foo Fighters? I grabbed the band's new record last weekend, and it's rinse-wash-repeat Foo Fighters as you've known them since the debut record in 1995.

Formula: Hook-laden verses followed by repetitive chorus that Grohl sings after the first verse and screams after subsequent verses. Add a break somewhere in the song that slows the tempo with Grohl singing quietly, followed by a Grohl scream or solo to increase the tempo. Toss in a sweet little ballad or acoustic number -- which is becoming another Foos' cliche -- for "variety."

Rinse, wash, repeat.

I can't believe I'm writing this, as I LOVED the Foos through "There Is Nothing Left to Lose." But I can't think of a more respected rock-pop band in the last 10 years that has done nothing to advance its sound or test itself than this band.

The Foo Fighters are a harder-rocking version of the Goo Goo Dolls. Paint-by-numbers power pop with zero innovation.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
