Amoeba Review

11/10/2014

For their new album, Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters hit the road, traveling to various musically rich locales to record a song in each city, in an iconic studio. The eight-song Sonic Highways is the resulting musical journey, which also corresponds to an eight-part HBO series, “Foo Fighters Sonic Highways.” “Here lies a city on fire, singing along” Grohl sings at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studio, reminiscent of Chicago rock music from blues to Cheap Trick, though Grohl’s triumphant growl is his own. With Gary Clark Jr. on board, the band tears through the two-part, country-and-glam rock ‘n’ roll of “What Did I Do? / God as My Witness,” recorded at Austin’s KLRU-TV Studio 6A. Washington D.C.’s hardcore roots inspire the band to dig into their original inspirations on “The Feast and the Famine,” and the results are ferocious. Every song might not truly connect the dots between the Foos and their host cities, but overall the gambit pays off, as the concept forces the band to stretch a bit and the results are still as catchy, energetic and heartfelt as anything they’ve done. It’s temping to say that an album takes you on a journey; Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways truly does just that.
