FOO FIGHTERS seesaws efficiently, even rambunctiously, but there's a distance, a sheen to it..."Entertainment Weekly (7/14/95, p.55) - "...Most of these songs are so disarmingly hooky, and yet such a raw blast of energy, that it's as if Lennon and McCartney had grown up in Seattle.

We're talking THAT breathtaking, that joyously gone..."Musician (9/95, p.88) - "...full of smart, crafty, kick-ass music....one can hear how much Grohl's musicianship guided Nirvana's sound--the album is packed with simple, forceful melodies, precise harmonies, and inventive arrangements..."Village Voice (2/20/96) - Ranked #6 in Village Voice's 1995 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included on Jon Pareles' list of the Top 10 Albums of '95 - "...[Grohl's] songs stare down misgivings with cryptic lyrics, memorable tunes and a willingness to bash ahead."NME (Magazine) (12/23-30/95, pp.22-23) - Ranked #12 in NME's 'Top 50 Albums Of The Year' for 1995.NME (Magazine) (6/24/95, p.54) - 9 (out of 10) - "...hurtling, memorable songs, satisfyingly crunchy guitars, and an unambiguously joyful spirit....Grohl sounds blazingly optimistic....[a] talented man at last gaining the confidence and wherewithal to seize control of his own artistic destiny....a massively important record..."154.868
