Rolling Stone - p.1273 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he mostly guitar-and-voice opener, 'Razor'; the plaintive, folky take on 'Big Me'; and the climactic, slow-building 'Everlong' -- illustrate how Grohl's songwriting gift moved him out of Kurt Cobain's shadow in the first place."
Q - p.1413 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t adds extra dimension to familiar songs. The title track -- an obscure B-side from 2005's DOA single -- is both gently cantering and creepily off-centre."
Alternative Press - p.139"The sound quality is top notch and includes the appropriate audience reactions to create a great concert atmosphere."
Kerrang (Magazine) - p.56"[V]iolins, harmonicas and percussion twinkle in and out, adding depth, changing perspectives."

Recorded during Foo Fighters' 2006 acoustic tour, SKIN AND BONES finds the perennially popular alternative-rock band drawing from its decade-plus history, even going so far as to include a spare rendition of "Marigold," a tune by frontman Dave Grohl that was originally issued as a Nirvana B-side. Augmenting the group's usual guitars/bass/drums line-up are pianist/organist Rami Jaffee (the Wallflowers), violinist Petra Haden, and additional percussionist Drew Hester, who add subtle flourishes to the stripped-down renditions of revered FF tunes such as the emotive "My Hero." While this concert release (also available on DVD) inevitably showcases the more sensitive side of the typically revved-up ensemble, it also reinforces Grohl's status as one of the most sincere and committed rock performers of his generation, as best revealed on the Foos' raw, intense take on "Best of You." Though SKIN AND BONES is a must-have disc for fans, its unplugged setting makes the album inviting to newcomers not as partial to Foo Fighters' rocking sound.
