Default What do you want from the next FF album?

Things are pretty quiet round here lately so trying to spark some sensible discussions rather than what cartoon people think Dave should be in. So as per the thread title really, the next album will be the seventh or eight Foo Fighters album depending how you want to look at it, they've been going a relatively long time now, what do you want from the next one?

Wasting Light 2.0, another 11 or so straight up rock songs? Would you like them to give the soft/loud stuff they did for ESP&G another try? Maybe some more straight up acoustic music again, a la IYH disc 2. Or perhaps you'd like them to try something completely new, a fresh musical direction?

Let's hear what you would like to hear from them.

I never expected an album like Wasting Light from them. Ever. Nothing against them as musicians because they have made albums just as good (to some arguably better). What I mean by that is I never expected an album as amazing as Wasting Light this far into their career. It's amazing and it's part of the reason why I love it so much. I don't think the next album will be as loud or powerful as WL. I think it will be more along the lines of TINLTL (fingers crossed). They can do whatever they want because they've never disappointed me. They've never made me not smile the first time I hear a new album or song. Do whatever you want, boys.

Fewer Bon Jovi like stadium rock anthems and more eclectic songs like the first few albums that have a more grungy/punkish influence to them.I loved Wasting Light but two of the songs that have gotten the most attention on it Walk and These Days were a little too MOR and bland for my taste and really didn't sound like the quirky Foo Fighters that I became a fan of.

Hi Foo-Friends! I am Luciano from Argentina! I would love to see an album with songs like the first record (Foo Fighters), one or two songs with Taylor singing, and maybe Chris too, an album with more songs (Like 17 or 18), and more heavier songs,! Bye friends!

Another kick ass album. I love Wasting Light. Dave and the Foos have a great imagination, and they'll never disappoint.

I'm very, very, very worried about their next album. I'll be brief.
I'm 29 and my brothers are around 40. That means I grew up with their music, that would be mostly bands who split up before I was even born. That means I've almost never waited for a "new album" to come out (speaking about rock music, of course). I became interested in Muse shortly after the release of their latest album, and when they announced the new release i was thrilled. Finally, a NEW ALBUM from a band I really cared about! That said, the singles they released were pure crap, from my point of view.
I became addicted to the Foos with Wasting Light, and I'm afraid of what will come. I hope for a WL2 or a return to the origins with some grungy stuff. I'm usually not satisfied with sperimentation.

A few fast short songs. They've been writing almost exclusively 3:30-4:30 songs for the past few albums. I don't want another TCATS but I'd like more of a mixture in terms of the "types" of songs.

Oh and some Dropped D songs would be cool again. (I fully realize what a silly request that is).

Songs in the vein of the 1st album with more of a faster tempo, punk influence.

I'd love to hear some 6-7 minutes psychedelic rock songs. For real.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the next record have a more laid back feel, sort of like a heavier TINLTL

^THIS too!!^

They have such a broad spectrum of talent-I like when they reach back and dig out the old, then explore something new, all their variations of performances...something that one would never be able to tell was Foo Fighters and definitely the signature/vintage FOO
what?
Is it wrong to want to have it all??

I'd really enjoy a B-side album. All of their B-sides from the first album to ESPG.

In terms of studio, I'd be happy with Wasting Light 2.0. I can't be assed to go back and see who suggested a "heavier TINLTL" but I think that would be very interesting as well.
