    Concrete and Gold is SOLID.

    Concrete and Gold – Foo Fighters. A very good collection that I felt no one song was “The big Hit” although “RUN” most likely candidate here. The Foo Fighters have often been referred to on L.A. radio stations as one of the last great rock ‘n’ roll bands and being so musically tight, very good songwriters, powerful performers all make it difficult to disagree! As a fan, two other bands you may also like that could also be included in that group are Collective Soul (a great new LIVE CD) and 3 Doors Down. The Foo Fighters may play with more bombast, but these three all rock. As the promotional sticker on “Concrete and Gold” declares, “Testing the limits of speakers everywhere” which this band always does!

    Foo's trying new things

    To me, any FF album is cause to celebrate but this album did not strike a nerve with me as much as their past albums have. Highlights for me are Run, The Sky is a Neighborhood, Sunday Rain (nice vocals by Taylor), Happy Ever After, and The Line. Much ado has been made of all the special guests, and frankly having McCartney plays drums on a track is cool, but like Sonic Highways the guests are buried in the mix and really bring nothing new to the songs; it still sounds just like the Foo's. Overall, a good album with a few songs I am still trying to warm up to and some that I just skip altogether - IMHO, not up to par compared to their last 3 albums

    Whether you are a Foo Fighter fan or not, this is a great album with many diverse songs from the mellow "Dirty Water" to the roll your windows down while driving 90 mph scream-along "Run". (BTW - if you haven't caught the video for "Run", look it up on YouTube. It's hilarious -with a Michael Jackson/Bollywood ending.) Definitely worth picking this album up if you haven't done so already.

    Foo Fighters hit another home run

    I was looking forward to the new Foo Fighters project and it did not fail to deliver. The added bonus of Taylor Hawkins on lead vocals on one number was also a pleasant surprise. The only complaint I have was there was no need for the obscenity uttered at the end of the last track. It served no real purpose. However, based on the whole project, I would recommend it to anyone to check out.

    The Foo Fighters are my favorite band, but this is far from their best work. I think it has mostly to do with the producer of the album. The producer has worked with successful pop artists, but may not have the knack to produce a rock record. The more I listen to it the more I like it. I will see FF for the 7th time in April!

    I love this album, everything about it. I've heard plenty of negative reviews. I've listened to this repeatedly and find something new everytime. I love how they where the albums influences right on their sleeve. Honestly I need a year to sit with this but it very well may be my favorite Foo album.....Period

    Muddy Production

    My only complaint about the latest FF album is the production. It's so muddy that you can barely hear the bass. It reminds me of production on '60s vinyl. I assume they did this on purpose. But please guys, don't do it again! It makes the album less enjoyable and there is some really good stuff here!

    Foo Fighters rock. We all know this. Concrete and Gold is one of their best records. It has a lot of different feels to it. I love the track that Taylor Hawkins sings, sounds like Steve Miller Band. I'm not a fan of the first and last tracks but the entire rest of the album is quality!

    Let me begin by saying that The Foo Fighters are my favorite rock band. The album is solid and I like the previous releases where not many fans did. A lot of people will like Run and Sky is a neighborhood. I did enjoy a few other tracks as well. It is a good not great album!

    The only downside to this album is its length. With its first track standing as a short intro track, and its last tracking standing as an extended outro, the real meat of the album is 9 tracks spanning about 40 minutes, but it is a wonderful 40 minutes!!

    I'm definitely old school in still getting CD's for my music but the album was pretty good. Not as good as they old Foo but still some enjoyable songs!

    This album is good, but it is not their best. The sound is a bit muffled and lacks the catchiness of their previous releases. There are a few really good tracks though that make it worth buying.

    Dave Grohl & company put together another solid release. Another step in the Foos evolution. Wish they had put a couple more tracks on it, but maybe we'll get some B-sides for Christmas

    The fact that this band is still making solid records is worth its weight in (concrete &) gold. Not their best album, but still better than 90% of the music put out so far this year.

    While Foo Fighters are a force to be reckoned with over the years, this album was good but not great like some of their older ones. The average FF fan will enjoy the album though.

    For Foo Fighter followers this is another good album. I did not find an "anthem" to latch onto like I have with other of their albums, but if a fan, you will still enjoy the work.

    I read reviews where this was one of the best Foo Fighters albums. It has some good songs here and there but song for song doesn't match up to some of their early albums.

    I really enjoyed this album. While not their best, it sill is classic Foo Fighters. Again they have showed that they can change their sound and continue to evolve.

    You fight foo by being consistent and releasing songs that are very well done in every aspect from the beginning until the finished product.
