Two years after their 2005 release, the Foo Fighters were at it again, releasing a brand new album entitled, Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace.  The September 25th, 2007 release was a hit, reaching number one on the UK Album Chart, Official Canadian Album Chart, Australian ARIA Album Chart, New Zealand RIANZ Album Chart, and Billboard Hard Rock Album Chart. The first single off the album was the hit song, "The Pretender," which was followed by "Long Road to Ruin" and "Cheer Up, Boys (Your Make Up Is Running)."  Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace will probably go down as the Foo Fighters best album of all time.  If you have never heard of the Foo Fighters, check out their past musical works, and their most recent release from 2007.
