The 8th studio album by the Foo Fighters is already rocking via iTunes and Amazon.com overnight.
By Stephen Pate – Despite assorted disses from rock critics, Foo Fighters Sonic Highways rocks and quickly gets inside your head.
Sonic Highways is #1 at iTunes and #2 in Rock music at Amazon.com – day 1. Nice.
The album premise is 8 songs composed and recorded spontaneously in 8 different cities. Get – 8th album, 8 songs, 8 cities.
Sonic Highways is also a HBO TV special with 4 of the songs /cities already – Chicago, Nashville, Washington DC and Austin. The show even has its own trailer.
Here is “Something for Nothing” which is classic Foo Fighters with the slow lyrical buildup to full-on rock.
When Dave Grohl, who WAS the drummer for Nirvanna FLG, shows up, I want to hear it.
Not to put too fine a point on it, if you like Foo Fighters like millions of people do, this is great music.
Sonic Highways is available Amazon.com and iTunes and Amazon.com for $9.99 with the Amazon.com bonus of instant Auto-Rip and a CD in the mail.
