FOO FIGHTERS / Wasting Light [2011]

Almost 20 years into their career and the Foo Fighters finally deliver the hard-rocking record they've always seem destined to do but for some reason held themselves back from really letting loose.
Wasting Light's raw rock energy might be partly due to Nirvana's Nevermind producer Butch Vig's input into the recording process. Sounding like The Queens Of The Stone Age finally rubbed off on Dave Grohl, the songwriting is rough, heavy and upbeat. Filled with fist-pumping garage rock anthems, the Foos sound like they're having the most fun they've had since The Color & The Shape.
It's not a classic album but one worthy of throwing on when you just want to feel good and forget the shit that lies underneath all this rock.
