They needed an editor. Badly.

There are a lot of 5-star reviews, and I felt like I was taking crazy pills. Then I scrolled down to see that there were a bunch of people who said what I was planning to say. Whew. I wanted a podcast with good research and thoughtful review of "great albums." When I finally tried this one out...it was what a lot of review complain about. Talking about everything but the album. For instance, in the Nothing Left to Lose Foo Fighters podcast...I learned what one host's girlfriend gave him for Christmas when he was 15. Castle Wolfenstein, the video game. I learned that they didn't expect that there were new viewers, but then they said maybe there WERE first time listeners listening. They said they shudder at how bad their early episodes were. They went over the fact that there was no real reason for doing that particular review except that they liked the album. They said there was no important anniversary or anything. And they, as they were saying that out loud, they put together that it was 20 years since the album came out, so it WAS an anniversary. Crap like this went on for THIRTY minutes before they started breaking down songs. Look, if hosts are witty or incisive or something, it's all well and good to listen to them say entertaining things...but this elevated uninteresting small talk to high art. And when they finally got into the background of the band, they kept having to correct each other on the facts. And when they tried to discuss equipment, they had trouble disguising that they had never seen the equipment they were GUESSING that the Foo Fighters used. SKIP IT.

Good listen

I stumbled upon this podcast somehow a while ago and have since listened to a bunch. The Siamese Dream, Blue Album, amd Chutes Too Narrow eps were great. It also took me through some albums I’ve never actually dove into (Dark Side Of The Moon) and took me on a few nostalgic trips (Yield). Either way, I like their voices and ideas and opinions and stories (Playing the shins in front of a strange girl and your aunt!) and they seem like friends I
Would kick it with. Well done gentlemen and thank you.
