Greatest Hits – Reviews Round-Up

October 29th, 2009 Comments off

Kerrang! - “Far too vital to be nostalgia.”
“Wheels might only be a mid-paced radiorock  staple, but Word Forward snaps into life with spittle and swearing that reduces fears that they’re settling into a comfort zone with age.”

Q – “Testemony to Grohl’s intuitive ear for naive melody and an artisan’s dedication to crafting the perfect aural snack.”
“Word Forward is regulation written to order.  But Wheels is something else: a glossy slice of bittersweet country rock choogle that is so similar to Tom Petty’s  Learning to Fly it must be the result of a gentleman’s agreement.”
