iTunes Review

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl still believes in rock ‘n’ roll. He plays it with the same passion and commitment he brought to Nirvana and to his own group for the past two decades. To kick off the next decade, Grohl took his band into his garage and recorded this album to analog tape with ferocious results. The opening screams of “Bridge Burning” and the hard rock guitar riffs immediately establish that Foo Fighters are stepping up their game. The seductive pop harmonies still underpin the hooks, but the energy behind these tracks is a live wire. Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman Bob Mould joins the group for “Dear Rosemary,” and former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic adds bass and accordion to two tracks. Nevermind producer, Butch Vig, produced the sessions, giving everything a vicious bite. Even the single, “Rope,” keeps its fangs. The songwriting is straightforward and powerful. “These Days” is the quiet before the storm as the songs builds to its own climax. Every track delivers what this band has always promised.

Hell Yeah!

Nice to see rock isn't Dead!

Holding the torch for Rock N Roll!

There isnt much happening in the world of rock these days. Just when you thought rock was dead, along came Foo Fighters "Wasting Light." This album will shortly be hailed as an instant rock classic as these songs begin to resinate. Congradulations to the Foo Fighters for creating a rock record in a day an age where most rock music has become forced and stale. Now listen up all you MP3 lovers. Go out and buy yourself a turntable! Buy this album on vinyl and listen to it the way it was intendid.

Foo-kin Amazing!!!

Don't think, just buy it! These guys bring soo much energy to each song. Excellent job FF's!

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...
