About this deal

The band spent three weeks in pre-production and rehearsals at their usual studio, Studio 606, where the composition was completed, going "from forty songs to fourteen". As Grohl wanted the songs "to have maximum emotional potential", the vocals were screamed to the point he had headaches—"when the mic is picking up every tiny inconsistency, you really strain to make it sound right.

Wasting Light is a simply fantastic album, in my opinion the best the Foos have done and easily one of my all-time favourites. Why go into the most expensive studio with the biggest producer and use the best state-of-the-art equipment? If you are an existing fan you won't be disappointing and if you a new to the band this is as good a place as any to start. As evidenced by the opening roar of "Bridge Burning" and "Rope" or metallic uppercuts of "White Limo", the new, three-guitar attack in place provides a wallop that wasn't there before.If heavy metal is a cheese sandwich, grunge is a crisp sandwich and punk rock is a turkey sandwich, then Foo Fighters have always been a turkey, cheese and crisp sandwich. They'd just played some shows at Wembley Stadium, and he told me, 'We've gotten so huge, what's left to do?

Seventeen years after the death of Nirvana guitarist Kurt Cobain, the shattering end of Grohl’s previous band continues to haunt the popwise punk he makes as the singer-guitarist-boss of Foo Fighters. The record won the Best Rock Album award, while "White Limo" was chosen as the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance and "Walk" won both Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song. Five songs on the album were licensed for ESPN [49] and two others were featured in movies, [6] "Miss the Misery" in Real Steel [50] and "Walk" in Thor. I am not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination and do not own any 'high end' audio equipment, but to my untrained ears the vinyl version sounds at least as good as, if not better than, the CD version. All of this can be distilled down to the rather stale observation that if you liked this band’s work before, chances are you’ll like this.Grohl said he felt digital recording was getting out of control: "When I listen to music these days, and I hear Pro Tools and drums that sound like a machine it kinda sucks the life out of music. To reduce the cymbal bleed, the microphones were rearranged and the crash cymbal was traded for a "shorter-decay Zildjian cymbal with holes drilled in it".

Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune felt that, although it is "competently" performed, the songs are not innovative and suffer from "clichés", including "hardcore punk screed", "streamlined rocker", and "melodramatic power ballad".The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.
