'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 Grammyr-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. The 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. RCA. 2005.
