Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters

Dave Grohl was the drummer for Nirvana and apparently he wrote some songs of his own, too! Foo Fighters is his opportunity to let his star truly shine. Not bad for a first try with little outside help save for some Greg Dulli guitar on "X-Static." You may have heard "Big Me" and "I'll Stick Around" popping up on radio or MTV, but the rest of the album is no slouch. From the more aggressive numbers ("Weenie Beenie," "Wattershed") to the kind of melodic grunge pop that proves Grohl to be close to former bandmate Kurt Cobain's equal ("Alone + Easy Target," "Good Grief"), the album's homespun eclecticism suggests that its creator has a long way to go in terms of refining and focusing his craft, but his current approach nevertheless makes for some tough rock songs that succeed in spite of their half-finished quality and hold much promise for Grohl's future achievements.
