The eight-part television series Sonic Highways wants a lot at the same time. The brainchild of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is part documentary about the music history of eight American cities, part behind-the-scenes look at the recording of a Foo Fighters album, and part collection of performance video clips. Each of the eight parts has the same set-up: first we learn something about a local music scene, then we see the Foo Fighters enter a studio and then hear the final result. Eight cities, eight studios and eight songs. And with that, Sonic Highways is also an eight-hour commercial for the album of the same name. Because by diving into history and uncovering the inspiration behind his songs, Grohl makes the audience very enthusiastic. What is disappointing is that the typical local music genres hardly influence the end result. The country from Nashville or the funk from Washington are mentioned, but you don't hear it in the songs. The Foo Fighters will always be the Foo Fighters. But this DVD shows why Sonic Highways sounds very inspired and driven. (JE)
