Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways

Post by LFF » Sun Oct 26, 2014 10:01 pm

Foo Fighters are set to release their 8th studio album on November 10th, also on BBC4 at 10 (i.e. now) the first part of the documentary of how they recorded the album - a song in each city based on its history and influences - is being aired.


So far they have released two songs from the albums:

Something from Nothing

The Feast and The Famine


This OP was rushed and I'll make a point of adding my thoughts after my viewing of Sonic Highways.

documentary was really good. grohl hit the nail on the head, it does feel like i have a lot more to base the tracks off with their wider context now.

excited for the cali track/episode.

Oops, forgot about this.


But yeah, the songs work better with context although personally I'm still unsure of them in comparison to when I first heard 'Wasting Light'. The documentary was superb though, if for no reason other than the inclusion of people like Steve Albini and Ian MacKaye who connected the history of the city to the foo fighters project nicely (also they're just really interesting people).

Personally I'm excited to see what they do for Seattle.

Haven't watched the documentary or looked into it or anything, but I'm very hyped for the album even though I only realised it existed a few days ago. Really like Something for Nothing, haven't got around to listening to The Feast and the Famine yet though.

Not really too bothered about this one. Colour and the Shape had some superb singles but otherwise this band has always been pretty mediocre to me.

Meh. Similar opinion to Noodle. Like the single Rope, from the last LP, but not much else and probably won't get this.

Watch the documentary or you won't get it

Also; self titled is their best work and you're wrong if you disagree
