    Good Grief, X-Static and Floaty would be amazing live.

    So many good two-step parts in Good Grief. Two-stepping in the pit at a Foo Fighters show would be hilarious yet awesome.

    Shame Shame is starting to grow on me after getting around to listening to the live version.

    New album is good, i found the mood to be a bit similar to "Concrete and Gold", that's not a bad thing...

    Loved "Chasing Birds".

    Appreciate the heads up.

    Gave it a spin last night and again just now. It's better than I expected, but my expectations were pretty low. It's not their best work, but it's also not their worst. Somewhere in the middle of the pack. Least it's better than Sonic Highways, lol.

    yeah, i am pleasantly surprised here, it's quite enjoyable, and it's short too so it doesn't really loose steam.

    Haven’t listened to the leak yet. But I dig Shame, no Son Of Mine is a not good attempt at an ace of spades type of this like said above, and War is legitimately guitar parts and melodies from times like these and come alive. And it comes off a bit.... corny?

    so, Shame is the only one I’m actually digging right now. And I’ve been a massive foo fan for a very long time. Hoping the rest of the album holds up.

    No Son of Mine is actually one of the weaker tracks on the record, interestingly enough. I normally gravitate towards the harder/faster songs, but this one really misses the mark. Rubs me the wrong way.
    The title track is fantastic though.

    Medicine at Midnight is so good! As a fan who doesn't really dig Concrete and Gold and Sonic Highways, it's nice to hear them bounce back with an awesome batch of songs. Making a Fire is a brilliant opener, and those background vocals paired with that riff sound great! Definitely the best opening song on a FF record since Bridge Burning I reckon. I really like how concise and to the point the whole album is too. Apart from Waiting On a War which is just a generic FF arena singalong anthem imo, every song has got something cool happening. Holding Poison and Love Dies Young have sweet 80s vibes, and the title track is probably the grooviest track the band's ever done.

    The reactions in this thread to the new record made me realize that clearly alot of people listen to FF for far different reasons than I do/did. This album fucking blows. No balls whatsoever. I don't want my FF to be "groovy". They are, to me, a rock band. They should rock. I want some riffs, I want some loud/soft, I want fast songs and slow songs. I don't want a funky sounding FF. I go elsewhere for such vibes. Fuck outta here with this record.

    I don't mind experimentation but I totally agree with everything you said.

    I gave the album a cursory listen last night and enjoyed it. It's a "fun" album, to be sure.

    It sounds like music they would put in the middle of pop songs on the radio to say "Hey we play rock music too".
