Re: Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold

Listened to the first half, GREAT rock'n'roll album, not a weak track so far. Even the short intro song is great. Aside from the singles, DIRTY WATER is the outstanding song so far.

Re: Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold

I liked Run for it's risk taking and LOVE Sky is a neighborhood for its mind blowing chorus. Not sure about the Line...a bit too middle of the road.
