    I'm going to keep an open mind. I'm going to forget what I've heard until the new album drops.

    More Pat Smear is always a good thing.

    How would you guys rate this album compared to their last one? Gotta know if it's worth checking out.

    awesome Album. Much better than Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace. More Rock. More essential Foo Fighters. can`t wait until Friday to pick up my copy! ;)

    I can't listen to this stream. Especially after the beast of a system that's in the actual White Limo. It just doesn't do the album justice. One of the few albums I'll be buying this year and blasting on my stereo.

    Great album! On my first listen there was no song that I wanted to skip.
    And Bridge Burning is burned in my brain, such a cool song.

    I concur. It's exciting for me too, since I haven't been able to listen to a full Foo Fighters' album since The Colour And The Shape.


    MY VERDICT:
    After being able to finally listen to the album at home, by myself, alone, without anyone to bother me, I give the album a solid B+.

    I really like the album aside from White Limo. It just doesn't fit. Then again there hasn't been a Foos album since TC&TS that had no skippable songs.

    Standout songs: Bridge Burning, Arlandria, I Should Have Known, Dear Rosemary, Miss The Misery.

    Honestly, I find every song on this set essential. Nothing really skip-worthy at all. Then again, White Limo is very purposefully difficult and a nod towards Grohl's roots.

    I don't think White Limo fits any less than the more aggressive parts of other songs on there. It's just one extreme of their sound.

    Also, I don't think There Is Nothing Left To Lose has any tracks that I skip... I think that's still their best album. Better than even The Colour & The Shape.

    So don't tell me you didn't see White Limo coming. It was a bit overdue.

    Damn solid album overall. I don't like White Limo at all but I'm sure that diehard Foo fans probably like it (and perhaps some non-diehard fans as well). Rope is also average at best for me, but the rest is pretty good if not great.
