Time is not on the side of any arena-dwelling alt-rock rock band celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Hey, survival is itself an accomplishment: Bands don't hang around for ten minutes, let alone ten years, unless they have consistently activated the pleasure receptors in lots and lots of brains. But the minute a band as an operation begins to market its gold-watch milestones, 25 years of loyal service and all that, the next release inevitably becomes a referendum on relevance.

That's where the erstwhile Foo Fighters find themselves as they launch the alternately raucous and meticulously arranged Medicine at Midnight. The band's tenth studio album was completed in March of 2020, and was intended as the centerpiece of an elaborate 25th anniversary tour. Both were derailed by the pandemic.

So here we are in Foo Year 26, contemplating what this band—revered by some for its snappy hook-abundant songwriting, dismissed by some as pop candy peddlers with fine tattoos—has to offer the post-rock post-pandemic post-everything world.

Start with the question of energy. The introductory splat/roar drum pattern of opening track "Making a Fire" comes at you feral and heedless, challenging stasis in all forms. Couple that beat with the industrial-strength guitar, and it becomes a provocation built on sonic abrasion, one that lives a billion miles from lockdown caution. But it's never exclusively that: When, on the disarmingly lovely pre-chorus, Dave Grohl asks "Are you afraid of the dark?" his voice is that of an art-rock trickster savoring the twists and turns of a game, not some aging belter making desperation plays for salvation.

That character comes out later. And when it does, in the turbulent finale of "Waiting on a War" and a few other places, Grohl does not hold anything back. "Waiting," with its all-purpose almost generic question—"Is there more to this than that?"—addresses conflict in many forms, from the idylls of childhood to the mob at the Capitol (just wait, someone will splice together that footage using this as the soundtrack). The genius of this track is in its measured ramp-up, from the acoustic-guitar verses into the declarative refrain and then a surging, rampaging, brilliantly executed accelerando. As the tempo rises so does the menace in Grohl's pre-shredded voice, and that, in turn, transforms the question into a taunt, a mantra, then finally a pulse-quickening showdown with the existential abyss.

That track and a few others—the Bowie-influenced "Shame Shame," the prog-metal "No Son of Mine"—suggest that this veteran band is still immersed in creative exploration. And even when making those highly bankable familiar Foo Fighter noises, they do so in inventive ways, veering away from the predictable on eight out of the nine tracks. The throwaway is the numbing anthem "Love Dies Young;" in a veteran move, it's helpfully placed at the album's end, making it easy to skip. © Tom Moon/Qobuz

Na sua visão global...
David Bowie e suas 1.001 facetas

Estrela singular e genial, David Bowie nunca parou de se reinventar por meio de uma discografia eclética e fascinante. Não há ninguém como ele na história do rock.

Creedence Clearwater Revival, rock atemporal

No final dos anos 60, o Creedence Clearwater Revival fez a história do rock ao inverso, inspirando-se no blues, rock e soul da década anterior. Despretensiosos e fora de moda, esses pioneiros do rock raiz compuseram um número impressionante de músicas que se tornaram grandes clássicos.

Arctic Monkeys, um roubo à inglesa

O quarteto de Sheffield deixou suas terras do norte para chegar às paradas com riffs incisivos e quadris lascivos. Depois de White Stripes, Libertines e Strokes, os ex-adolescentes colocaram o rock em infusão e depois o mundo em sintonia, impondo-se álbum após álbum como um grupo que ocupa todos os espaços, tão confortáveis no soul quanto no pop.
