    Reel To Reel Collaboration Studio

    Luckily, I found out about the “Sound City: Reel To Reel” through the Foo Fighters e-mail mailing list. I decided to take a chance on them because I previously enjoyed the Foo Fighters greatest hits collection (reviewed it on January 14, 2011), their Wasting Light cd (reviewed on May 14, 2011), and had much fun at one of the Foo Fighters concerts back in November 11, 2011. As with millions of others, I have been aware of Foo Fighters since the 1990’s thanks to MTV. Additionally, I have been familiar with the Foo Fighters and this genre of music because my two older brothers frequently listened to rock music. I like the diverse music collaborations on the cd. I also completely understand that it is going to vary with each man or woman on personal favorites on this cd. However, I have to admit that the following are among the songs that caught my attention: “Heaven And All” (Robert Levon Been, Dave Grohl, Peter Hayes), “You Can’t Fix This” (Stevie Nicks, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, & Rami Jaffee), “The Man That Never Was” (Rick Springfield,Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel& Pete Smear), “From Can To Can’t” (Corey Taylor, Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen, & Scott Reeder), “Cut Me Some Slack” (Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, & Pat Smear), and “Mantra” (Dave Grohl, Joshua Homme, & Trent Reznor). “Sound City: Reel To Reel” is a great music choice for those who like rock music featuring an eclectic range of musicians.

    A must for music lovers

    I had a lot of curiosity about this, so I ppv it. and immediately had to own it! What an amazing story about what I grew up listening to! The Fleetwood Mac story was awesome! A part of history disappeared with the studios demise. Sadly digital is not always the way you should hear music, especially when you listen back to the old way music was recorded! a must see!

    Great Companion to a Great Movie

    Great soundtrack to the Sound City documentary. Most songs sound like Foo Fighters backing the lead singer du jour. And that is a good thing. This package reminds me of Dave Grohl's "Probot" project from a few years back. If you enjoyed the movie, you'll enjoy the soundtrack. If you didn't see the movie, you would still like this if you are a Dave Grohl fan

    What a fantastic documentary. Sure it helps if you're already a fan but if you're not, you'll still enjoy this vastly entertaining documentary about the Sound City recording studio and all of the legendary albums recorded there. Is there nothing Dave Grohl can't do? Now he can add filmmaker to his resume. Definitely worth a purchase.

    Get this CD if you got the movie! The songs are original and great. You can't beat the sound. If you like Foo Fighters, Fleetwood Mac, Corey Taylor, Queens of the Stone Age, Tom Petty, etc...You can't go wrong with this. I've listened to it dozens of times and plan on more.

    Incredible music by some legendary artists, from track to track there is not one skipping song on the album. Taking advantage of every artists strong points, the album rocks hard, contains incredible lyrics and melodies and is one of the best albums yet released in 2013.

    Overall, Sound City is a great album. I wasn't overly excited after my first listen, but the classic rock sound keeps me going back for more. There is one track "Your Wife is Calling" which is too crazy for my taste, but otherwise i am glad I bought the album.

    As can be expected from these collaboration type CDs some of the songs are hits and some are misses but it's highly going to be dependent on the listener. Personally I found enough enjoyable tracks here to make it a good purchase.
