Foo Fighters – New album

The Foo Fighters were my first ever ‘favourite band’ after having been introduced to the world of guitar based music with two albums: Nirvana – Nevermind & The Offspring – Ixnay on the Hombre. On their self titled debut, Dave Grohl is said to have single handedly written the material and recorded the vocals, guitar, bass and drum parts. This remains my favouite release, with simple, memorable tracks like ‘Along + Easy Target’ & ‘Exhausted’ complete with much distortion, interspersed with the dreamy songs like ‘Floaty’ and the ultra abrasive ‘Wattershed’.

We subsequently saw the release of a superb album in ‘The Colour and the Shape’, a good album in ‘There Is Nothing Left to Lose’ and the mediocre ‘One by One’.

The group are ready to release their latest offering having put their various side projects on hold for a little while. According to NME.com, “The band are marking their ten year anniversary with a two-sided LP – one disc full of rock songs and the other featuring acoustic tracks.” Hopefully, we will be blessed with a true return to form as opposed to a handful of gems amongst much filler.

    Although I'll agree there was what some might call filler on the past two releases, I'd have not rated the Foos so low in this article… If it was filler, it was exceptional filler.

    I agree One By One is that the Foo's best album. I loved TINLTL and TCATS - two of the best albums in my collection. If the new album is anything like these, it will be superb and well worth the wait.
