Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett released his new solo album “Lost at Sea” via Blue Elan Records.

Aside from being a veteran rocker and guitar slinger for the Foo Fighters, he is also a podcast host and songwriter.

Shiflett worked on this musical effort with producer and collaborator Jaren Johnston, the frontman of The Cadillac Three.

It opens with the mid-tempo and mellow “Dead and Gone,” which has a catchy groove to it, and it is followed by “Overboard” and the spitfire “Black Top White Lines.”

“Damage Control” has a liberating and nonchalant vibe to it, while he picks up the pace with the infectious “Weigh You Down.” “Burn The House Down” is one of those bangers that will inspire fans to clap and sing along with him.

After the heartfelt ballad “I Don’t Trust My Memories Anymore,” it closes with the up-tempo “Carrie Midnight Texas Queen,” and on a fun note with “Parties,” which is the ideal sendoff for his fans and listeners.

The Verdict

Overall, “Lost at Sea” is a solid solo album from start to finish.

There is a lot of musical variety on this collection by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chris Shiflett, where each track has its own identity. It is evident that it was a labor of love for him.

It encompasses elements of Americana, roots, folk, country, alternative, and indie rock music. There is something in it for everyone.

“Lost at Sea” is available on digital service providers by clicking here. It is worth more than just a passing glance, and it garners two thumbs up.
