Alright, lets do this.. we’re going to look back on some of my favourite albums of 2015. The criteria is this.. the record had to come out in 2015 and I had to love it.. that’s it..
Day 6 – Record 6
THE FOO FIGHTERS – SAINT CECILIA
It’s no secret I worship at the alter of the Foo Fighters and my lord and savior Dave Grohl..
…so it should come as no surprise that the 5 song EP the Foo released in November is on this list. Yes it’s only a 5 song EP but the 5 songs are OUTSTANDING.
I must admit, I enjoy it more than ‘Sonic Highways’ which; don’t get me wrong is a very good record but I found it a bit of a challenging listen. It always feels like I’m being disrepectful to ‘Sonic Highways’ by not sitting down to listen to it and giving it my full attention. Most of my music consumption comes via my phone while I’m commuting or running errands. I always feel like Im not giving it its due. Does that make sense? It’s too good to not pay full attention to. Which is not to say Saint Cecilia isnt, I just find it to be more like the classic Foo efforts I know and love and that are the soundtrack to my day.
Saint Cecilia is a straight up and down rock n roll record. There’s no pop filler, auto-tuning bullshit. It’s a band playing good songs for 20 minutes, which sadly is a pretty rare thing in the mainstream of music these days. It’s good and it’s worth your time.
Also.. it’s free. Seriously, check it out on iTunes or wherever you get your digital music. It’s free..
Moral of the story.. the Foo are the best.
MUSIC.. Hell here’s the whole record..
Tomorrow we break into the top 5
