Now that Dave Grohl has gotten through the intense scrutinyleveled at the Foo Fighters' debut, this follow-up finds him flexing his creative muscles a little easier. Forgoing theautocratic approach of FOO FIGHTERS, THE COLOUR & SHAPE allows the other members of the band a greater amount of influence, which quickly becomes evident. The punk-pop nuggets outnumber the thrashier moments on this record. Nevertheless, Grohl's time on the D.C. hardcore scene is never far from thecreative process, whether it's the first squeals and squawks that pop up around the hooks and screaming vocals of "Hey,Johnny Park" and "My Poor Brain" or the alternating, Nirvana-like dynamics of "Enough Space". Elsewhere, the dreamy popof "Walking After You" (recorded in one take by Grohl at Washington, D.C. radio station WGNS) and "Up In Arms" rubs shoulders with the Catherine Wheelish sheets of guitar flowing through "My Hero".

the foo's best album


As you can guess by my username I'm a huge fan, if I had to put the six albums in a favourite order i'd go:

TCATS
Foo Fighters
There Is Nothing Left To Lose
Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
One By One
In Your Honor

Well, the acoustic side of IYH is pretty good, but the rock disc is just way too overproduced. Album 7 is due out next year and Grohl is promising to go back to basics recording it is his garage rather than Studio 606, and it's a straight up rock record unlike ESP&G, so i'm looking forward to it.

have to agree with you there weenie beenie, the only song i loved on disc 1 was the title trakc, love the intro to it, cant wait for some new stuff. I did listen to some new stuff by taylor hawkins the other day which wasnt bad

Live the songs sounded much better because they didn't feature 50,000 (slight exageration) layered guitar tracks and tons of compression across the board. I think that's what puts me off more than the songs themselves.

I love Them Crooked Vultures as Daves' side project and Jackson United were pretty good, but never really liked Taylors stuff.

I'll second all the comments about what a good album this is - definitely the Foo Fighters best effort to date.

Worth considering that there's an extended tenth anniversary edition out as well (£4.99), with some extra b-sides. Though TBF the b-sides aren't exceptional, except "The Colour and The Shape" (track not album), which is a personal fav...

Far more belters on their first album than any other in my opinion. Every song is a winner. It's their only album I listen to without skipping tracks.

i bought this cd about 4years ago for around £2, anythin over £3 is surely a rip off?

Good album good price. I'm liking Them Crooked Vultures at the moment but waiting for some New Foo stuff (not too impressed with Wheels). After taking a sebatical with other projects I think Dave Grohl should have a lot of fresh new ideas. I ask one thing put the cover of Arcade Fire's 'Keep the car running' on an album. I've onlt ever heard the Foos do that once on a Live CD I have from Brighton and it's one of the best covers I have heard.

Heat from me :thumbsup:
