Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold
I’m of the opinion that there comes a point in a bands life where they should hang up their hat and accept that they are past their "best before date". I’ve seen the Foo Fighters perform and I would have put them in that category based on their live performance as it just lacked the raw angst that comes of youthful anarchism, obviously, they all grew up and have built very good lives for themselves so the angst isn’t really streaming through their veins anymore. That was before I heard this album, and I realised I must be talking bollocks as they still kick arse in the angry rock department.
The first track is a gentle start to the album before they really smack you in the face with the outstanding track Run. This is a bloody good rock track, It would make a good jogging playlist addition for those wanting to step up their stride, you’ll be giving Usain Bolt a run for his money if you manage to keep up with this one!
By the time you get to the second track you’ll probably, like me, be totally bought into this album Make it Right is probably my favorite track on the album, it’s a classic in the making. They certainly did make it right because it’s fucking cracker! I’m not going to wank on about this album anymore, just put it on and rock out motherfuckers. This album may not have the teenage angst to reference, but it’s a bloody good rock album, and possibly one of the Foo Fighters best yet, so they clearly aren't over the hill yet, keep it up you magnificent old bastards!
