In the time following the disintegration of Nirvana, Dave Grohl worked hard at establishing the Foo Fighters. The release of the band's third album was a triumph that came on the heels of a label switch, Grohl's divorce, and the departure of three band members. Despite all the chaos, the former Nirvana skinbasher managed to record a collection of songs that meld the power of his punk roots with an innate sense of melodicism.
Sure to shock and dismay indie purists are such abundant '70s classic rock quirks as the stomping Foghat-like riffs of "Gimme Stitches" and the Frampton-influenced talk box that colors "Generator." Elsewhere, the pounding force of the scathing "Stacked Actors" and the driving "Breakout" contain elements of a hard-hitting rhythmic style that has its roots in the D.C. hardcore scene that spawned Grohl. The true beauty of THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE is the way in which the Foo Fighters maintain a delicate balance of blistering guitar and irresistible hooks, resulting in the perfect pop of "Learn to Fly" and the gentle twang of "Ain't It the Life."
