Foo Fighters' gig at the famous Hyde Park, London, June 17th 2006 was quite the milestone in their career. Not only was it the biggest concert the band ever had done with regard to the size of audience, they actually sold out the 85,000 tickets just in a month. Set list of the concert could be considered one kind of "best of" collection as Foo Fighters cranks through hits such as "Best of You", "Learn to Fly", and "Monkeywrench". The highlights of the concert are Lemmy Kilmister's guest appearance on "Shake Your Blood" (which originally was a collaboration song on Grohl's Probot project) along with the rendition of "Tie Your Mother Down", on which Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen join the stage.

Production of this release is a bit of a double-edged sword. On one hand the audio has been produced well, the vocals are distinct and there's enough clarity in the mix, while on the other hand the video quality is slightly disappointing at times. MPEG artefacting is visible and somewhat distracting - as is Grohl's habit of chewing gum while singing, but that one I'll let slide by acknowledging the band's laid-back image. The extras, or more precisely the lack of them, highlight another downside of the release. Regardless, Hyde Park is overall quite an interesting show and by all means worthwhile addition to fans' collections.
