Coming up on this latest release, four years later, I was curious and nervous at the same time. Could the Foo deliver yet again with, “Wasting Light”? Well, when I heard that Butch Vig was in the Producer’s chair and Pat Smear was officially back in the band I was fairly certain that this album couldn’t be bad.
