Foo Fighters - Skin and Bones Review

by Zane Ewton

Skin and Bones is a snapshot of the Foo Fighters 2006 acoustic tour. The album was recorded solely from the band's August performance at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.

The Foo Fighters have done well not to abuse the live album/compilation filler that so many bands rely on. Skin and Bones breaks that rule but does so in a classy way that offers something fresh for the fans until the next album.

The songs come mostly from the acoustic disc of In Your Honor. With extra guitarist Pat Smear as well as several other multi-instrumentalists, the dreamy soundscapes and melodies of that record are matched perfectly.

The perfect all acoustic albums all have impeccably brilliant songs from top to bottom. While Skin and Bones doesn't match those standards it is still an enjoyable performance that fans of the Foo Fighters will cherish.

"My Hero" gets an updated arrangement while the In Your Honor songs stick closer to the recorded versions. A few older songs including "February Stars" sneak in, as well as a newly dusted off "Big Me".

While I would prefer the driving guitars and Dave Grohl's hollered vocals, Skin and Bones demonstrates another side of a band that remains consistently pleasing. This is another welcome addition for any Foo fanatic.
