Sound City – *1/2

Posted: June 28, 2013 in 2013, Documentary, Musical, USA

So, Dave Grohl made a documentary about a record studio that closed down in 2011. It’s the record studio where Nevermind was recorded, and many other albums from the past (seventies).

It’s passable as a documentary. As en extra on a dvd or so. But not as a feature documentary release. It’s a semi-chronological account of a record studio’s growth to fame and decline to closure. Plus the last 40 minutes are about recording a new album with the mix table from the studio that Grohl purchased.

I was pretty bored by it all. And I’m not often bored by things that Dave Grohl does. But he wanted to pay a tribute to the studio, the bands who recorded there before he did and he wanted to jam with them.
