Foo Fighters: Wasting Light Review

Foo Fighters
Wasted Light

I like this album. It's big where it needs to be big and vulnerable where it needs to be vulnerable. It's got heart. As a result, the parts I liked I really liked, but there were a lot of moments, especially in the middle of the album that were meh.

The Opening Track "Bridge Burning" was awesome for me. The opening of the song sounded unique and a little creepy. I dig that. That said a lot of the album for better or for worse (for me it's for better) sounds a lot like stuff from 10 years ago. That said I kind of prefer that type of music and frequently shake my old man fist. There are plenty of moments here where the Foo Fighters take something old and make it new, but unlike the Beastie Boys I can't say that the entire album sounds that way. Most of it sounds like it wouldn't be out of place in '96. It's not that the music is bad; it's just that it's been done. It sounds a lot like old Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam stuff. Again since I like Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam I like this, but well it's all been done.


  1. I thought this was a great album as well. In my opinion, it was actually the most consistent album that the band has ever released. I only felt that the album let up a few times and allowed it to nearly earn a 4 out of 5 on my blog review.

    Do you do music reviews often? I'd like to see what else you've got in store!


  2. I try to do them once a week though recently I have lapsed a bit. Right now I'm working on a review of Tech N9ne's new album
