    Foo Fighters "Wasting Light"

    Came out yesterday. Just been streaming it (haven't picked it up yet), but I'm really digging it so far. One of their strongest batches of songs in awhile. It doesn't stray all that far from what the Foos do best, but they really play to their strengths, and throw some great touches in here and there (a few more solos than normal). "Walk", "Arlandria", "Rope" and "White Limo" are early favorites. It will probably finish the year as one of my top 10-15 albums of the year. Having Pat Smear back in the fold is a great thing.

    Anyone else have this yet?


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Foo Fighters "Wasting Light"

    Where are you streaming it? I would like to do this while working today.

    I watched that recent doc they had on palladia on Friday and have been wanting to hear it.

    I'll get it today. There was a documentary on VH1 on Friday about the band called Back and Forth. It was shown entirely commercial-free (edited for cable, though) and was really good. Definitely worth checking out if it comes on again.

    Re: Foo Fighters "Wasting Light"

    Big Foo Fighters fan but I hate "Rope". They played a second single on SNL and it was much better. Like others have said, do not miss "Back and Forth". I must admit, Grohl came off a little overdramatic in the documentary. I prefer his funny smart arse persona in interviews and concerts.

    I cannot recommend Foo Fighters in concert enough. Maybe the last rock band. I went as a casual fan and left as a diehard fan.

    Re: Foo Fighters "Wasting Light"

    Foo Fighters are my second fav band and i love this new album. there really isn't a song on it that i don't like. The sounds, the rhythm, the lyrics, all sound like classic Foo. i liked the last album, but there were a lot of songs that i just thought were ok. but this new one has a hard rock feel and dave's "screams" sound awesome!

    White Limo rocks so freaking hard and the video is Foo Fighters all the way lol. Dear Rosemary and Arlandria are my other favorites.

    i didn't love Rope at first, but it's grown on my a lot. in the documentary my fav part is when Dave's recording a guitar part and his daughter taps him on the shoulder asking to go swimming lol.

    I saw them in Dallas in 08 and i'm gonna see them in May in Council Bluffs. can't freakin wait.

    Re: Foo Fighters "Wasting Light"

    I caught Back and Forth on TV too...I had forgot how much I dug FF debut album way back when.

    I saw them in concert with Red Hot Chili Peppers at Carver Hawkeye Arena. They opened for Chili Peppers but were the much better show IMO.

    FF and the RHCP would be a great show.

    FF were great. They had the crowd into it from the start. I love "I'll Stick Around" live.

    Chili Peppers weren't bad but not all that special. Seemed like they were going through the motions at times. Flea's guitar solo was lame.
