The title Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace could easily lead the listener to think Foo Fighter's sixth album is mellow. However, this is far from the truth, as the band showcases their diversity throughout the record. Altough at times they have softer songs, also some heavier tracks with stomping rhythms are offered. Unfortunately, the album loses some of its appeal in the longer run, especially due to some fairly mediocre tracks.
As a whole this album sounds rather solid. One song, however, doesn't quite fit to the record... it's an instrumental track Dave Grohl wrote after meeting a survivor of the 2006 mine collapse in Tasmania. While this song, Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners, features some nice fingerpicking by the guest guitarist Kaki King, it sounds quite separate from the rest of the album.
The production on this record was handled by Gil Norton, who last time worked with FF on their second album "The Colour and the Shape". As expected, the sounds are apt, and overall impression of this album is fairly positive.
