Come Alive

The new Foo Fighters album came out yesterday. It didn't get the best reviews, but since I don't care about other people's opinions I got it anyway. Besides, the earth would stop moving if I didn't buy whatever Dave Grohl put out. I like it so far. I always wish for him to do harder stuff and to scream more, but the man has been screaming for years now and that, along with all those cigs, has probably done crazy stuff to his vocal cords.

I really like "Stranger Things Have Happened" and "The Ballad Of Beaconsfield Miners" so far. The former is just the type of song I would fall in love with and I love his line about loneliness. The latter is a kick-ass instrumental that sounds bluegrass-inspired at times and also has one of my favorite things-when one can hear the fingers on the strings. Mmmm!!!

Check it out and let me know what you think!

I just bought a bunch of CDs and probably won't buy any for a little while. But that one will certainly be among the next ones I get. Dave Grohl rules!

I'm sure it would sound great coming out of the stereo in my submarine, but I guess we'll never know now, will we?!

ARC- Listen, I'm sorry about the submarine, ok!?
