Making it a CLASSIC already.
- Over the last couple of years Dave Grohl has become a very well respected person colliding with a rock legend which this man already is as the drummer of THE defining band of the 90's. Although it took him a few of years until he lost his brand of his previous assignment and started to be fully respected for what his doing, which was well deserved.
- The Foo Fighters are a new wave and punk influenced rock band which some people still would call grunge, but they had developed their own very distinctive sound and since their debut album remain stellar sounding 20 years later which isn't a bad thing as they were able to keep things interesting more or less on every album and tend to avoid sound very repetitive.
- This means that you can't expect anything new in terms of direction or progression on this album, but needless to say, you get exactly what you looking for. THIS is a Foo's record at its finest. Basically every song is so distinctive and tells its own story like the accompanying Grohl's document Sonic Highways which is being broadcasted on HBO and leaves you with a much stronger impression of the whole 9 song package. It's a very clever marketing decision but if it there so much undeniable quality to all of it, you're left with a very little to no chance to hesitate that these guys are true to what they are doing. Regardless of the media attention to this release, which is huge for a rock band these days… the Foo Fighters hit their pinnacle. It might not be their commercial height but this just makes them the ultimate rock band of today and they pretty much secured their spot in rock 'n roll chronicles. If you want to disagree then name a band which recorded their album in 8 different cities and made a tribute to each one of them by recording a song and shooting a insightful documentary about their contemporary music scene.
