Concrete And Gold is the ninth studio album by American rock band Foo Fighters, released in September 2017 by Roswell Records.

Albums eight and seven for the Foos were, in their own ways, conceptual; Concrete And Gold is much more accessible.

No reinventions, no crises of faith, and, given it’s 2017, no overt state-of-the-nation addresses – unless you are counting the oblique opening track, “T-shirt”, which Grohl has said was written in reaction to the political mood (you can’t really tell). “La Dee Da”, meanwhile, is littered with references to obscure rightwing bands. In a recent interview, Grohl was at pains to explain that the song reconnects with both his own alienated teen self and other alienated young males he knew.

The rest ranges far and wide: love songs, storytelling, questioning. There are chant-along tunes that start raw and become saturated, such as “The Sky Is A Neighborhood”, whose heaviosity is leavened by angelic backing sighs. McCartney is here in spirit as well in body. “Sunday Rain” is highly Beatley; so is “Happy Ever After (Zero Hour)”. Both have a dark bent. “Where is your Shangri-la now?” muses Grohl on the latter. “Happy ever after/ Counting down to zero hour/ There ain’t no superheroes now.”

Grohl and co are on point, Concrete And Gold  has girth and depth, and it's refreshing to hear the Foos embrace Grohl's allegiance to real rock values.

Check out the tracks: “Run” and “The Sky Is A Neighborhood”. 

This double LP with etched side 4 and digital download is housed in a gatefold sleeve and pressed in Europe on black vinyl.
