VINYL FORMAT. Just as it long ago became a lazy gag to greet a new Gallagher release with a withering, "well they've hardly gone dubstep, have they," there's no radical new afro-beat flavor to Wasting Light. What you're always going to get from the Foo Fighters is testosterone-fueled arena rock'n'soul.

But nevertheless, this is the awesome sound of a band massively rejuvenated. The songs are bigger, the teeth are sharper, the metal is denser and perversely, the analogue production makes it sound a hell of a lot more classy. Truth is you sometimes run out of masculinity metaphors when describing the Foo Fighters, but spending time with Josh has also rubbed off, so in the ways that the best rock music always is, it also sounds splendidly girly at times.

So this restores Dave as the every person's Rock God, but it also recasts the Foos as more of an actual, collective band than ever. We're just going to say it: this is the best Foo Fighters album since The Color and the Shape. - NME
