2011 album from the Alt-Rock superheroes led by Dave Grohl. 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.

Another Foo Fighters Classic !
A brilliant follow up after Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace. Good balance of tracks and even experimented with a new style in a few songs !
The album is kick-ass. But the one who wrote the track-listing for the album must be a harebrained nincompoop. Why have Bob Dylan songs been listed on a Foo Fighters album??? The answer my friend, I guess, isn't blowing in the wind...
