There comes a time when your connection with a band ceases to exist. Maybe you mature and your taste change. Maybe the material they put out no longer resonates like it use to. And maybe they just stop making good music. I'm at that crossroads with Foo Fighters, who have released their second album in a row that I've received with mostly a yawn. It's not like it's a bad record, hell, most rock bands wish they could music like this, but I hold bands like this to a higher standard. I find their latest record mostly vanilla, a pleasant listen that I have trouble remembering songs seconds after they finish. Now the path to which this record was made doesn't help. It's material mostly from a self serving docu series. They travel to cities and make music on the spot, no doubt influenced and inspired by the moment. The music desperately needs the visual and feels incomplete without it. Or maybe it's just downright boring, no matter how much Grohl yells. So disappointing.
