This has been called, by some, the Foo Fighters return to form, but they never lost it..if anything they've just explored their talents deeper. With their 7th studio album, they've taken the best bits from their entire back catalogue, pushed their playing abilities to the edge, and held on tight.. This is a new revived band, and with Pat Smear back to make up a five-piece force to be reckoned with, and Butch Vig at the production helm with the 'back to basics' approach, it's given Wasting Light the music industries much needed kick up the ass.
I wont go into the ego-critics over-indulged detail as you've read it all before, but what I will say is Wasting Light truly rocks. Having said that, there are songs for everyone whose ever loved the Foos, from the post-Nirvana explosion of their debut, or to the more undestated, underrated 'Nothing left to Lose', it has a mixed bag, exorcising demons, burning bridges, and driving Limo's, it's the Foos having fun again.. This might not be groundbreaking, but when the Foo Fighters do it this good, like the saying goes, if it aint broke, dont fix it...just add nitro and let her go!!
