In 1991, Nirvana rolled up at Sound City recording studio in Los Angeles. The tattered room, which had recorded everyone from Neil Young to Johnny Cash, wasn't what they had expected. However, the album they recorded there – Nevermind – became one of the most iconic of the 1990s. After Sound City closed down last year, Nirvana drummer turned Foo Fighter Dave Grohl bought the console and made a documentary, assembling a supergroup of peers to write the songs that feature here. The Sound City magic dust is sprinkled over the Stooges-like opener Heaven and All, which pairs Grohl with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Sound City veteran Stevie Nicks's trademark tale of temptation and loss,You Can't Fix This, sounds extra haunting given the fate of Kurt Cobain. Some tracks (the Rick Springfield-augmented The Man That Never Was) sound like Foos-by-numbers. However, Grohl and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic have coaxed a jewel from Paul McCartney: the raging, White Album-ish Cut Me Some Slackmust be the rawest thing he's recorded in over 40 years.
