In theory, Foo Fighters’ new album Wasting Light should be thoroughly awesome. It follows the group’s disappointing Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, so it’s got that “comeback album” angle. Wasting Light also guns for “back to basics” status—hard. Frontman Dave Grohl reconvened with Butch Vig, who, in case you forgot, helmed Nevermind by Grohl’s other big band, Nirvana, and recorded the album in analog instead of digital. Oh, and they recorded the whole thing in Grohl’s garage. Founding Foo member Pat Smear is back. Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic shows up on accordion and bass for a track. Hüsker Dü’s Bob Mould pops up too, because why not. On top of that, initial pressings of Wasting Light come with a piece of the record’s original master tape.
