Though not a soundtrack album by any stretch, Sonic Highways shares its title with the Dave Grohl-directed eight-episode HBO series described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music and premiering Friday, October 17 at 11 p.m.
For the album and series, Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear wrote and recorded one song in each of these eight cities, delving into the local musical currents: how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns. All songs feature local legends sitting in, with every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews for the HBO series, and other local personalities who became part of the process.

I am not sorry I ordered this album and I will be seeing them this summer in concert, It should be a great array of music, new and old. I love the classics, however, this new sound is fresh and very modern. Two thumbs up from me!
NOTE: If you haven't seen Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, it is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray... it is an amazing history and story behind the songs and I highly recommend it to any music lover (rock, alternative, etc) and it is a must for Foo fans.
You can plainly tell no expense was spared in the making of this and im glad... It sounds amazing. Whoever says this is more of the same is out of their minds...
I don't usually rate music as 5 stars unless I instantly love it and continue to after many listens in the future. So for now this gets 4, but could very well be a 5 if I continue to listen and enjoy!
