Love it. Makes me think of the relaxed feel of TINLTL.

I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't that.


Really different sounding song for them. I think like it though, need a few more listens. Maybe it'll finally shut up the "all their songs sound the same" crowd. Doubt it though

I am loving the variety on the album, though.

Feels like a grower. I didn't love it on the first listen, didn't totally sound like a Foo Fighters song to me. But another listen or two and I'm enjoying it more.

Hmm weakest for me so far. But I like it's different for them. Very radio friendly.

It sounds like Christian music which isn't a good thing IMO

I know this will sound odd, but it's very young sounding. If that makes sense.

I hope they're not releasing songs sorting by the best because my favorite so far is Run, seconded by The Sky is a Neighborhood

When you take this song in the context of their entire catalogue, I think it's awesome that they can have what is essentially a pop song like this and then songs like White Limo. This song epitomises why I love this band.

Listened to it four times. I still prefer the two other ones.

To me this sounds like someone like Bon Jovi trying to write a Foo Fighters song.

Itīs not bad per se but out of these three Run is my favourite by far.

One of the reviews so far said if SH was FF's tribute to classic rock, then C&G is their love song to alternative. This song is completely that imo and I absolutely love it. Has a chance to be one of their biggest radio hits ever too. It's friendly enough for pop radio if it picks this song up.

Yeah I know what you mean! My wife once walked in when I was listening to Arlandria - it was the pre-chorus and she said "What's this? Bon Jovi?!". What hurt the most is that I realised she was right.

They've had a few Bon Jovi moments since.

oh wow, I LOVE this

totally agree with whoever said it was giving them TINLTL vibes. It's like a throwback to a younger, funner FF.

(and I don't mean that solely because of the "satellite searching for a sign of life" line... it's just a looser, poppier sound than they've had in a long time)

Also, great drums and Rami's synth in the mix. He used that sort of sci-fi sound in a solo during band intros recently.
