Since Grohl's mixing console was not automated, at times four people—Vig, Grohl, Moulder and engineer James Brown—had to work simultaneously on the board, something Grohl found interesting because every song was done differently and "even the mixes sounded like performances" [15] [25] The mixes were tested out in the cars of the band members and Vig, as they felt that "if it sounds good on a lousy stereo, it will sound good anywhere". The opening 40 seconds is as good an album opening as you will ever hear and the rest of the song doesn't let up with machine-gun guitar in the verses and a chorus that shows the Foos still have one or two surprises up their sleeves. Miss the Misery' is the least Foo-like track on the album at a first listen, though it still has that classic motif of borrowing dna from about a dozen different rock bands.

The technical reasons for this escape me, and there is no 33rpm version of this album to compare it to, however I can confirm that it sounds absolutely fantastic.

The equipment was the same the band employed to record the albums There Is Nothing Left to Lose and One by One at Grohl's former house in Alexandria, Virginia. They rehearsed the songs with the intent of recording them live in Grohl's garage, unlike their previous approach of coming up with parts during the recording process. As Grohl says during Back and Forth, before recording began in earnest, "I love that we're going to make an album at home. An example was "I Should Have Known", partially inspired by former Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain – "a song like 'I Should Have Known' is about all the people I've lost, not just Kurt".

According to Grohl, the analog strategy would make the record "sound rawer and somewhat imperfect; [7] Chris Shiflett agreed that "rock n'roll is about flaws and imperfections".Andy Gill of The Independent criticized its "bombastic level" and stated "the presumed desire for back-to-the-roots simplicity . The last two tracks `I Should've Known' and `Walk' ease us out in style and `I Should've Known' has a great intro which then builds throughout the song until it finishes with typical Foo Fighter grit and flair. Grohl's screams haven't registered this dangerously, gleefully shredded in years-- if he was hoping to exorcise some demons, it sounds as though he made that happen.
