Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü, one of Grohl's idols, was brought in to do vocals in a song Grohl conceived as a duet with him, "Dear Rosemary". Andrew Perry of The Daily Telegraph viewed it as by far the band's best album and found it "tough but accessible, reliably catchy, yet also surprising at the last. The record won the Best Rock Album award, while "White Limo" was chosen as the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance and "Walk" won both Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song. Adele Is iTunes' Top Seller in 2011, Foo Fighters' 'Wasting Light' Named Album of the Year by Apple Staff". Since Grohl's mixing console was not automated, at times four people—Vig, Grohl, Moulder and engineer James Brown—had to work simultaneously on the board, something Grohl found interesting because every song was done differently and "even the mixes sounded like performances" [15] [25] The mixes were tested out in the cars of the band members and Vig, as they felt that "if it sounds good on a lousy stereo, it will sound good anywhere".

If you are an existing fan you won't be disappointing and if you a new to the band this is as good a place as any to start. Former Hüsker Dü frontman and fellow 80s punker Bob Mould guests semi-audibly on the Zeppelin-like crunch of "Dear Rosemary" and then of course, there's Novoselic's turn on "I Should Have Known", where the latter's bass sounds as round and bowling ball-heavy as it did on Nirvana's "Sliver".But as with some other Foo Fighters albums, the sense is that a number of the compositions featured here serve no greater purpose than making up numbers, and that a composition such as the ordinary Miss the Misery, to name just one, will not be played live and will never be heard from again. You take all of the things that people consider your band's signature characteristics and just amplify them and make one simple album with that.

Though he would drum with them during a "Saturday Night Live" performance later that year, Grohl ultimately declined, to start over from scratch and do what he's still doing today: front a band. Walk' is also a song that builds and by the time you get to the end where Grohl screams `I never wanna die' you are singing along with full gusto and feeling every emotion conveyed. On tour in 2010 with Them Crooked Vultures, Grohl developed songs and recorded demos, which he took to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins for development. Other guest musicians included three members of the expanded touring band, keyboardist Rami Jaffee, violinist Jessy Greene and percussionist Drew Hester. Grohl decided on the promotion both because he thought it "would be an extraordinary move to destroy all the masters and give the pieces of the tapes to the fans", as the digital recording does not allow for such a memento, and also because every technician involved with Wasting Light was overly worried about the tapes.

Didn’t hear your warning/Damn my heart gone deaf,” Grohl sings as the initial darkness – a solitary guitar and the quiet cutting guilt in his voice, set in inky reverb – slowly blows up to a purging rage: “No, I cannot forgive you yet/To leave my heart in debt. The band committed to not changing what they recorded; according to Smear, "Whatever we did, we didn’t change it. Memories keep haunting me/Help me chase them all away,” Grohl pleads on Wasting Light, through the guitar rain of “Arlandria,” sounding like a guy who knows there will never be enough amps and distortion in the world to drown out the unanswered whys in his head. Arlandria' is slightly gentler and reminds me of Them Crooked Vultures, but this still manages to chuck a chorus at you to get you bouncing along with pure joy. After "Rope", four other songs were issued as singles: "Walk", " Arlandria", " These Days", and " Bridge Burning".
