It’s about time that I put my limited knowledge and half-baked opinions of music to work – by reviewing song new rock songs.
“The Best Of You” – Foo Fighters
This song gets better every time I hear it. The problem is, Dave Grohl has been talkin’ up the new album saying its very ‘hard’- This song isn’t. “Best” is a good song that doesn’t live up to Foo Hype.
“Little Sister” – Queens Of The Stone Age
A good song the first forty times a heard it, after that…Eh.
“Beverly Hills” – Weezer
In a word…Disappointment. Fun song the first couple of times through but it grows old quick. I can’t tell if the song is making fun of or loving Beverly Hills, which annoys me – Weezer should be spoofing B.H.
Plus, the video is set at the PLAYBOY MANSION and all the director does is get a group of people clapping as they sit around The Weez playing – Lame.
“Be Yourself” – Audioslave
Way too radio friendly and safe for musicians of their ilk. Especially for a hard rock band’s first release. A nice song from a band that shouldn’t play nice.
“Happy” – Mudvayne
This is the kind of song that good metal bands produce. Reigned in just enough to get radio play but still hard. This song gives Mudvayne a chance to become a very relevant band in the rock scene.
