The Foo Fighters’ forthcoming album, Medicine At Midnight, is their tenth, which may surprise readers who still think of them as a pretty new band. 

You won’t have to be an established fan to like its nine songs – they’re recognizably Foo-ish in nature – but if you’re familiar with the stadium-rock quartet’s early hits, Learn To Fly, Breakout, Times Like These, Monkey Wrench, and the rest of them, you may detect a slightly funkier edge to the music than usual.
