The Foo Fighters "In Your Honour" album is amazing. Its the best sound i've ever heard from the Foo Fighters. Lots of my friends agree. Its going to be a sell lot. I recommend it to everyone. The first disk is quick heavy and fast while the second is more mellow and calm. Its great and just by listening to the track "best of you" you can tell that. So get up and buy it. NOW!

Foo Fighters Fight Foo Greatly

by samanthatenay@hotmail.com on 9/10/2005

The Foo Fighters brought out thier boxing gloves on this album! "In Your Honor" is one of the greatest CD's that is ever to hit the shelves of your local music store! I can honestly say that not one song on this album sucks! If you purchase this album I promise you that you will not be dissapointed. The Foo Fighters lived up to thier promise of giving you an album that you can rock to even if your not that into rock music. When you listen to this music you can't help but do a little head bang (youngters) or tap your foot a little (wiser rockers)! Read More

Product Overview

In Your Honor features a diverse batch of guests, including Norah Jones, former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

"It’s our fifth album and our tenth year together--we had to make an event of it," says Dave Grohl of IN YOUR HONOR, the Foo Fighters’ double album that looks to be the defining statement of an exemplary career that stands unmatched in rock ‘n’ roll: Love, loss, clubs, arenas, stadiums, blood, sweat, tears, platinum and Grammys®... Foo Fighters have done it all--and on IN YOUR HONOR, they do it one better.

IN YOUR HONOR opens with a blistering tour de force title track that matches and possibly exceeds the ferocity of any of the heaviest tracks Foo Fighters have ever recorded, from the Best Hard Rock Grammy®-winning "All My Life" to perennial favorites like "Monkey Wrench." This first of two discs more than lives up to Grohl’s mission statement of being "the most asskicking thing we’ve ever done," yielding one flawless FF barnstormer after another: First single "Best Of You" is possibly the heaviest AND most melodic thing the band has ever done period, while "DOA, "Resolve" and "No Way Back" do their level best to up the energy level exponentially.

IN YOUR HONOR’s second disc showcases the sensitive side that made sleeper hits out of the acoustic versions of "Everlong" and "Times Like These." Though not an "acoustic" or "unplugged" record per se, it explores the gentler side of the Foo Fighters musical beast, with strains of sunny California freedom rock running through "What If I Do" and "Miracle." There’s even a touch of bossa nova on "Virginia Moon," while elsewhere on the second disc John Paul Jones lends a hand.

Dave Grohl has said that IN YOUR HONOR is the album he wants Foo Fighters to be remembered for. That’ll be no mean feat, considering their first four albums generated over 10 million worldwide sales and 4 Grammy® Awards. But it’s a task that "one of the best rock bands in the world" (SPIN) is ready to take on.

Although it was a commercial success, Foo Fighters' 2002 album One by One seemed flat and tired, as if leader Dave Grohl had reached a songwriting slump or the band had exhausted its possibilities. The group responded with In Your Honor, a double album containing one disc of hard rock and one disc of acoustic material. Both the rock and acoustic albums have their own distinct character, and while each is recognizably the work of Foo Fighters, neither feels formulaic. While the acoustic album would seem to be a break from tradition, both albums showcase a reinvigorated band eager to stretch out and experiment. Foo Fighters have not only expanded their sound, they've found the core of why their music works, and it makes for what is arguably their best album yet. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Spin (pp.98-99) - "Disc one of IN YOUR HONOR features the most consistent rockers of Grohl's career, moving from the emocore he helped birth to the platonic alt-rock he pounded into shape." - Grade: B
Uncut (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 - "IN YOUR HONOUR is unquestionably the work of a band with ambitions rekindled."
