Album Review

Forget all that nonsense about Dave Grohl listening to the Bee Gees and ABBA when writing Wasting Light. You can even forget Bob Mould's killer cameo on "Dear Rosemary,” no matter how seamlessly the Hüsker Dü frontman’s patented growl slides into the Foo Fighters' roar. What really matters is that nearly ten years after Songs for the Deaf, Josh Homme's influence finally rears its head on a Foo Fighters record, Dave Grohl leading his band of merry marauders — including Pat Smear, who returns to the fold for the first time since 1997’s The Colour and the Shape — through the fiercest album they’ve ever made. Nowhere is Homme's tightly defined muscle felt as strongly as it is on "White Limo," a blast of heavy sleaze that's kind of a rewrite of "You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar,” yet Grohl isn’t thieving — he’s tweaking his frequent bandmate with a song that could have graced SFTD or Them Crooked Vultures. That sense of humor is welcome on Wasting Light, nearly as welcome as the guitars that ring loud and long. Things tend to crawl on the ballads, as they usually do on a Foos record, but these slower spots have a stately dignity that contrasts well with the untrammeled rock of the rest of the album. Perhaps Butch Vig — working with Grohl for the first time since Nevermind (and that’s not the only Nirvana connection, as Krist Novoselic plays bass on “I Should Have Known”) — should take some credit for the ferocious sound of Wasting Light, but the album isn’t the Foo Fighters' best since their ‘90s heyday because of its sound; it’s their best collection of songs since The Colour and the Shape, the kind of record they’ve always seemed on the verge of delivering but never have. [An LP version was also released.]

Customer Reviews

Saving Rock

The Foo Fighters, with Grohl at the helm, have once again restored my faith in rock. Not only have they restored my faith in rock, but they have also restored my faith in MUSIC. Today it's hard to find any mainstream music that is as authentic as this. Grohl and company even went as far as to record the entire album on analogue equipment! The first run of the album in stores even comes with a snip of the master track! It's definitely worth a purchase if you like classic Foo. However, the dynamic of the band has changed a little since Echoes, Silence, Patience, and Grace, so if you're a "Best of You," Foo Fighters' anthem fan, you may want to tread lightly. The opening verse of the first song, "These are my famous last words" rings through the entire album. This album doesn't seem like it was made for the radio and that's the beauty of it! Tracks to note: all of them! Check this one out!

Foo's best yet

I didn't know what to expect , but This is just incredible. It is just the best music I have heard in a very long time. Watch how many bands copy the garage / non digital format.

Biography

Formed: 1995 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

When Foo Fighters released a debut album written and recorded entirely by leader Dave Grohl -- at that point known only as the powerhouse drummer for Nirvana -- in the summer of 1995, few would have guessed that the group would wind up as the one band to survive the '90s alt-rock explosion unscathed. Other bands burned brighter but they flamed out, breaking up after scoring a hit or two, while the Foos steadily racked up success after success, filling stadiums around the world while staying on top...
