There is not a single bad song on this album. Grohl's lyric writing is at its finest here as well. He pieces together words so brilliantly I've never heard anyone with a similar style pull it off so well as he does on this album. The riffs are great. "Rope" and "Walk" stand out as phenomenal tracks, but every track has great moments. The album is amazing throughout.

Creepy thing happened to me with this album. I drove from Utah to go to my wife's Grandma's funeral. Her name was Rose Marie... and well the mix we had playing had this song come on 4 times in one day during that drive down... no other song did, and it was like a thousand song mix. I don't believe in any type of mystical things, but strange nonetheless.

Anyway, fantastic record from the Foo's. Definitely top 4 Foo album... my mood can't make up it's mind when it comes to them.

Bob Mould, Pat Smear, AND Krist Noveselic on the album?!?!?! Awesomeness.

What a surprise!

After a few okay to decent albums they completely rock on a 4 track player to make an excellent blue collar rocker.

More consistent than their other excellent outing Colour and Shape but with less highs.

There isn't a bad song with Walk and White Limo my personal favorites. White Limo has so much punch and energy.

Foo Fighters' magnum opus, and Dave Grohl's best work since 1993's In Utero.

I'd have to put this one as the best Foo album. Each song is awesome.
Best tracks: Bridge Burning, Walk, Rope
Worst tracks: Miss the Misery, A Matter of Time

Some people here seem to argue that this ranks with their greatest. Well, I'm not sure I would argue with those people ...

Can't decide if I prefer this or The Colour And The Shape. The standout songs on The Colour And The Shape are better than those on Wasting Light, but Wasting Light is more consistent.
