Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways

Album Review

Documentary-inspired new album sparkles, but loses a touch of its lustre in isolation.

The Foos went to look for America. Frustrated that they were only getting glimpses of the cities they were touring, and inspired by the reaction to Dave Grohl’s documentary film about LA’s Sound City studios, they decided to visit eight US cities to investigate the people who make and record music there, and to write a song in each town.
