Worth the time
10 June 2015 | by mahitunaSee all my reviews

Never thought someone could make recording studio equipment so interesting. Great info for music lovers and will keep you interested. Worth the time, won't be disappointed. David Grohl loves music and seems down to earth and assembles a all star cast for this informative documentary about a studio that suffered the fate of technology advances.It is funny how people hope lightening strikes twice,a group records a monster album at the studio and then musicians are beating down the door to record their music at the location. And believe it or not it works. Some of the largest selling albums recorded at this studio and some members come back to record with David one more time
