CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Spin

It's Grohl's most memorable set of songs since 1997's The Colour and the Shape.

90
Consequence of Sound

Wasting Light has cornered the kind of ideas that make up the best of the band’s catalog in an earnest attempt to go as big as possible, while staying relatively grounded.

80
PopMatters

Wasting Light is so consistently good that its minor flaws are subsumed by the sense of goodwill and energy it generates.

70
No Ripcord

Catchy choruses remain, arpeggios hardly make an appearance in favor of volatile hooks, and quiet-loud dynamics are still the norm.

One of Dave Grohl's best works in a long time. Wasting Light is pure and unadulterated Rock and Roll.

Best Track: Rope
Worst Track: White Limo
