3-and-some years ago Dave Grohl and Friends put out Concrete and Gold, a cohesive, solid entry in a lengthy discography stretching back to 1995. While it’s likely my least favorite album of theirs, it has some excellent songs and does a good job of sticking to, for lack of better words, a sonic theme throughout, and the album’s name I think was a great descriptor for it. It was chunky, riffy, heavy at times (Concrete?), and maybe a bit overproduced (Gold!) in my opinion.
