Summary: THE COLOUR AND THE SHAPE is an example of how a record brings a rock band into the public spotlight, but is not cosidered to be a breakthrough. This album is a great piece of work, because it displays progression of Foo Fighters' sound before they hit it big. Tracks from this album brought the band millions of listners, but the actual record was not thought to be good enough to promote internationally. Those tracks however, would later lead Foo Fighters to their fame. With Grohl originally from Nirvana, this band would would definately have an awesome sense of time, rhythm, and sound. And they do; Foo Fighters perform well together, keep a steady pulse, and use dynamics to their perfection. This record is mostly a light rock sound, but there are times where there is a good head banger quality present. This album is also some of Foo Fighters best work and rightfully so. Once heard, there's no denying it. With rock classics thrown deep within this record, THE COLOUR AND THE SHAPE is a most have for any rock fan.



Stand out tracks include:

"Hey Johnny Park!"

"Wind Up"

"My Hero"

"Everlong"

"New Way Home"

Summary: Riding the momentum of the hit single "Learn to Fly," which hit No. 1 on the modern-rock charts long before this album's release, the Foo Fighters' third record is unarguably its most refined and poppy. The ominous riff that the opens "Stacked Actors" (which sounds like something Kurt Cobain could have hacked out on Nirvana's gnarly "In Utero") is pretty much a red herring. The 10 tunes that follow are a succession of hook-laden pop songs tarted up with guitarist-vocalist (and former Nirvana drummer) Dave Grohl's thick guitars and increasingly sugar-sweet vocals. Nearly every cut on "There Is Nothing Left to Lose" has the potential of following "Learn to Fly" up the charts. The production is big and friendly and songs like "Generator," "Aurora," and "Headwires" just melt in your mouth. And even though the Foo Fighters' latest is seductively sweet in sound, there are just enough rough edges and lyrical angst to keep things interesting. "--Adem Tepedelen"
