It's been a while since we've heard something from the Foo Fighters that shook us from head to toe, but with this their 7th studio opus, it's a case of prime time rock n' roll. Produced by Butch Vig (and featuring contributions from former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and Husker Du man Bob Mould) the band recorded from the comfort of Dave Grohl's garage using only analog equipment before the process of post-mastering took place.
From the euphoric drive of Rope, the infinite metallic distortion of White Limo, the grooving, sing-a-long, anthemic rock of Back And Forth, to the rootsy roll of Walk, this is an arena sounding album. Outside that 'big' box, the rousing I Should Have Known and the gorgeous Arlandria are among the best songs Mr. Grohl has written to date. Atmospheric turmoil at its very best… This is Wasting Light!
