Foo Fight­ers have never sounded heav­ier than on their ninth stu­dio al­bum Con­crete And Gold, which is also its most di­verse. Front­man Dave Grohl pushes his vo­cals to the limit on the al­bum’s first sin­gle ‘Run’, the band re­peat­ing the in­tense ef­fort on the rif­fladen ‘La Dee Da’, with the help of jazz sax­o­phon­ist Dave Koz as well as The Kills’ Ali­son Mosshart on back­ing vo­cals. Mosshart also ap­pears on the Bea­tles-influenced ‘The Sky Is A Neigh­bour­hood’, but more sur­pris­ing is Justin Tim­ber­lake’s brief vo­cal in­put on ‘Make It Right’, which also boasts a Led Zep­pelin-type gui­tar riff. Paul McCart­ney dropped by dur­ing record­ing sessions, adding a drum track to the Bea­tle-ish ‘Sun­day Rain’, while Shawn Stock­man from Boyz II Men adds vo­cals to the pur­pose­ful ti­tle track of this bril­liant al­bum.
