Wasting Light [Digipak]

New or Used: 3 copies from $6.07
Wasting Light is the seventh studio album by American rock band Foo Fighters.

First single is entitled "Rope" and will be heard from the beginning of March 2011.

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters celebrated Valentine’s Day with a gift to their beloved fans: Those valentines who visited (or continue to visit) received a token of affection dedicated to them by Dave Grohl: A kick-ass shot-on-VHS video of “White Limo” starring Motorhead’s own Lemmy Kilmister as the driver and Grohl (and wife Jordyn), Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear as players in scenarios no doubt familiar to any aficionado of “classic” ‘80s hard rock videos.

Produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder, Wasting Light was recorded entirely on analog tape in the garage of Grohl’s home in California’s San Fernando Valley. The no computers/no software back to basics approach has resulted in arguably the strongest and most cohesive effort of the band’s 15-year-plus career: From first single “Rope” to the frenetic opener “Bridge Burning” to the beautifully bipolar “These Days” to stunning guest spots from Bob Mould (“Dear Rosemary") and Krist Novoselic ("I Should Have Known"), Wasting Light is a singular triumph: a band that’s headlined arenas, stadiums and festivals the world over stripping itself down to the bare essentials and coming up with a world class band’s finest hour.

Concurrent with the album’s release, Exclusive Media Group’s documentary division Spitfire Pictures are producing a feature documentary about the Foo Fighters directed by Academy Award winner James Moll (The Last Days, Running The Sahara).

Co-produced and co-financed by Exclusive Media Group and RCA Records, Moll’s documentary chronicles the entire history of the Foo Fighters, from the cassette demos Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvana’s drummer through their ascent to their Grammy-winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.

This chronicling of the Foo Fighters’ triumphs and tragedies culminates in an in-depth behind the scenes perspective on the making of the new album: A process in which the band pushed itself forward by returning to its roots and recording in Grohl’s garage completely on analog tape.

Performer Notes
  • Audio Mixer: Alan Moulder.
  • Recording information: Dave's Garage.
  • Photographer: Steve Gullick .
  • Wasting Light marks the official return of Pat Smear, who rejoined Foo Fighters' touring lineup in 2006 but hasn't played on the band's studio albums since 1997. It also features a cameo by Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl's former Nirvana bandmate. Rather than focus on the personnel, though, Wasted Light shines a light on the band's melodic hard rock, which is captured in analog sound by Butch Vig.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Eleven tracks of fuzz-box brawn, mosh-pit-hurrah choruses and iron-horse momentum, WASTING LIGHT is the best Foos album since the first two..."

Rolling Stone (p.70) - Ranked #20 in Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "The result is their most inspired LP in a decade..."

Spin (p.78) - "Three-guitar riff bombs, like 'Bridge Is Burning' and 'White Limo,' brandish real heavy-metal muscle, while the insanely catchy 'Back and Forth' summons some of NEVERMIND's poisoned-pop frenzy."

Entertainment Weekly (p.57) - "LIGHT is a muscular rock & roll throwdown, featuring the Foos delivering exactly the kind of catchy, pummeling anthems they're known for..." -- Grade: A-

Billboard (p.32) - "[T]he 11-song set is an explosive, high-octane burst of rock energy from a 16-year-old band that is tightly honed and righteously raw."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] sees the Foos return to their raw, real roots, with songs that largely hark back to grunge's early days and the scene they grew out of."
