Wasting Light

Artist: Foo Fighters

Album: Wasting Light

Release: April 12, 2011

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

It’s evident that “Wasting Light,” the Foo Fighters seventh LP and the followup to their Grammy winning “Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace,” sets out to do two things: rock hard and kick ass. And do those things it does. The opening track “Bridge Burning” begins a sonic onslaught that doesn’t let up until the end of the album, with “Walk” closing us out of the pure rock sound Dave Grohl and Co. seem to put out so effortlessly. Tracks like “Rope”, “Back and Forth,” the aforementioned “Bridge Burning,” and “A Matter of Time” present us with frantic, fast paced, but well balanced three piece guitar work. Complemented by Taylor Hawkins powerful right foot and mastery of the drum kit, they’re rounded out by Grohl’s screaming vocals that perfectly encapsulate the heart he has put into these songs. Darker and more emotional songs “Dear Rosemary,” “Arlandria,” “Miss the Misery,” and “I Should Have Known” feature quieter and more carefully measured vocal work from Grohl, while “These Days” and “Walk” present a happier and more hopeful side to the album. Both songs build up from a slower, softer beginning to bombastic finales, in line with the loudness of the other tracks. “White Limo” is a stand out track, particularly in its aggressiveness and balls to the wall mentality, with nearly all of its vocals shouted by Grohl. When all is said and done, “Wasting Light” is an all around excellent record, reflecting on the past and contemplating the future. It brings the Foo Fighters in a newer, somewhat simpler direction than their previous efforts, and reestablishes them as a rock force to be reckoned with.

“In a picture, the representation of a sunset ends with the frame. A rectangular boundary is imposed upon the unbounded natural phenomenon; the fixed depiction of a cloud remains forever unchanging. Music can grow brighter, darker, shift position, and finally fade away like the glow of the sunset itself.”

Review: Beautiful View by Kelsey Lewis

Today, on July 2nd, Fort Worth artist, Kelsey Lewis, released her debut LP, titled Beautiful View.  Featuring 10 original songs, and with a duration of just over 35 minutes, Beautiful View is quite a work of art.  Kelsey’s vocal performance on this album was powerful and intense (Beautiful View and Don’t Write a Song), yet calm, relaxing, melodic, and emotional (Falling and Naive).  This girl has an incredible and very unique voice, that’s bound to take her far.  The instrumentals on this album were just as excellent, especially the bass in Up in the Air and the drumming and guitar in Calendar.  On top of that, Kelsey’s songwriting talent really shows through here.  Definitely pay close attention the lyrics on this album.  Beautiful View is a wonderful album by a wonderful local (Fort Worth) artist.  It is available, right now, on iTunes for $9.90.
