The Best Albums of 2011: #14

Foo Fighters: Wasting Light

Whatever you think of the Foo Fighters’ music, you gotta’ admit they’ve had one hell of a run. These dudes (Dave Grohl in particular) have pretty much done it all in a career that has spanned 17 years. While they’ve chosen to take a more subtle approach on their last two albums, Wasting Light is a shift back to doing what they do best: heavy, anthemic, arena-ready alternative rock.  Even after several months of playing this album to death, I can still say that Wasting Light is the band’s best album since their 1999 release There is Nothing Left to Lose.
