I knew you would put the foo fighters up in the top, I would actually like to hear what you like about that album because I really get quite bored by it. I love the of fighters. I've only really gotten bored by two of their albums and even those I think have their redeeming qualities. (One by One & There is Nothing Left To Lose)

thanks for the great posts.
