What’s Your Take on the New Foo Fighters Concrete and Gold?
I pre-ordered mine and it arrived on Weds. I listened to it immediately. The record dropped on Fri. 09-15-2017. What's your take? SOUND OFF!
I had forgot that I had ordered this CD months ago, along with the tickets I was able to lock-down for the upcoming Nov 11th performance at the Denny Sanford Center in Sioux Falls, SD.. So when it arrived this past Weds via USPS. I was thrilled!
History pretty much shows that everything Dave Grohl touches turns to gold, or platinum. The Foo Fighters global appeal is indisputable, and that's how I think this record will impact, despite some sharp turns in this collection of tracks.
Present are many of same markers that dot the Foo Fighters landscape, like break-neck STOPS & STARTS, searing vocals & riff-based song structure. Grohl and company have always been able to get their message across lyrically, but there are elements in this new music that is a departure from past efforts. (I like that!) \m/\m/
Of course you've heard the debut 'Run', and now, 'The Sky Is A Neighborhood' right here on Z-Rock & The Rock Of Rochester. I'm currently on my 4th spin of this entire disc. It did NOT blow me away on the 1st spin, but it's growing on me big-time now on the 4th time thru. In addition to the aforementioned tracks, 'La Dee Da' is a stand-out song for me, along with 'Sunday Rain'. In these old ears it's clear to me Dave, Taylor & company has enjoyed hanging out, and working with Paul McCartney.
Here's one review. Here is another from Loudwire, but really, I'd like to hear yours! Music impacts each and everyone of us differently. Again, SOUND-OFF on the Z-Rock Facebook Page!
