Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Dedicated to the victims and survivors of the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks, this EP boasts a touching mix of grief and hope, resignation and determination. The title cut is vintage Foo Fighters: anxious insecurity that gives way to steely optimism. “Bring me some healing, Saint Cecilia. Carry me home to your house of broken bones,” Dave Grohl pleads. “Savior Breath” and “The Neverending Sigh,” in contrast, are pure piss and vinegar, snarling punk meets ’70s rock. The most arresting moment is “Iron Rooster,” a spacey country-rock number that comes from a place of deep contemplation.
