I never thought the Foo Fighters ever made an album that lived up to The Colour and The Shape. Not that the Foo Fighters suck, I actually enjoy most of their albums. I just always felt that The Colour and The Shape had something that all their albums after just simply lacked. Then Wasting Light came out. Maybe it is because they recorded this album all on analog and could not go back and fix mistakes. Maybe it is because they had Butch Vig as producer. Whatever Foo Fighters did, they did it right.
