Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
During the last dark days of Nirvana in 1994, tapes of Dave Grohl’s solo demos circulated among alt rock royalty — Greg Dulli commented positively about them in more than one place — but it never seemed that these home-made tapes would be the origin of one of the biggest modern rock bands of the post-grunge era.

A major criticism of the Foo Fighters' self-titled debut was its supposed lack of, you know, passion among the well-crafted songs and well-crafted rock. This time out, if it's wreckage you want, it's wreckage you get. The Colour & the Shape grows deeper the more it's played, with the band's ripping power more than matched by Dave Grohl's fascinating examinations of pain and divorce. There is even a convincing long slow ballad, "November Stars", whose intensity should win over doubters. If that doesn't work, then the screaming "My Hero" will. --Rickey Wright

I dont think 1,000 words is enough to describe the awsomeness of this album,so rather than babble on i'll try to be brief. After Dave Grohl leaving Nirvana he has moved on to bigger and much much better things. The lyrics are incredible and even if you're not a huge Foo fan you will be impressed. The contrast of music is amazing,with a slow ballad (Doll) opening the album and leading into the racy Monkey Wrench afterwards you will listen to the album with enthusiastic intent. My personal favourite on the album is Hey,Johny Park! and my only complaint is that there's not enough of that wonderfull guitar solo by Grohl. The vocals aby Dave are incredible, with the calm, tranquil chords on Doll and yet the hugely powerful screaming (not at all gratuitous) in Enough Space and Monkey Wrench.

Formed by former Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters initially came under a lot of pressure from critics out to prove that Grohl was just cashing in on his former band's success. As if they hadn't been proven wrong enough by the excellent debut, they were sure to be eating their words when 'The Colour and the Shape' was released.
Often considered to be the Foos' best, the album is a collection of delicious pop-rock classics, full of bounce and melody. Unlike most bands within the genre, Foo Fighters have a real feeling of originality and depth behind their song writing.
The songs are generally built around soft and delicate sections which burst into the punked up choruses. There are also slight metal overtones which add an extra weight to the songs. Some of the best examples of this can be seen in 'Monkey Wrench', 'Hey, Johnny Park!' and 'My Hero'. Then there are quieter ballad moments, such as 'Doll' and 'Walking After You'. However, the standout track, many would agree, is the dream-like 'Everlong' - it simply has to be heard.
In short, 'The Colour and the Shape' is an essential album with some of the best tunes and melodies you will ever hear. Buy it.

If you have gone out and purchased the latest Foo fighters album 'One by one', or your just a fan of rock music wishing to broaden your horizons, and have not yet heard the Foo fighters earlier material then be sure to add 'The color and shape' to your collection. In fact, you could call it illegal to not own this album! It is by far the greatest Foo Fighters album, with the classic punk anthems 'monkey wrench' and 'wind up', and the anthemic 'My hero', the beautiful 'walking after you' will bring a tear to your eye! Who could forget the greatest ever Foo fighters song (and quite possibly the greatest, period) 'everlong', with a great video to match! Needless to say, if your a Foo fighters fan or a fan of rock, you MUST own this album.

This can easily be classed as one of the Foo's best albums. It has some brilliant tracks, 'Monkey Wrench', 'My hero' and the anthem 'Everlong', which are all simply outstanding. The whole album is superb though, very uplifting and just great rock, perfect for those summer days out. This is a great place to start if you're new to the foo's and an excellent addition for any existing foo fans, a must have album!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE on 13 July 2006
Format: Audio CD
foo fighters second album is an album that i will never grow tired off,in some ways this was their last great album,those that followed have their moments but they dont have the hunger that this displayed,their debut is great but this is better,there isnt a bad song on here,the songs range from hard kicking rock songs,to anthemic ballads to electronic tinged songs,its all good here folks,this is a band that were overflowing with ideas and although dave grohl has a big ego,on this he was in top form and had the songs to back up his belief in his band.

the album opens with the melancholy doll which is a sleepy opener,which sends you into a false sense of security before the classic monkey wrench kicks in and what a riff and chorus,that song never sickens me,hey johnny park follows and again is a melodic,sing a long classic,my poor brain follows and is so infectious that even your granny would be hard pressed not to sing along,but folks the good songs keep rolling such as wind up,up in arms,my hero,see you,crikey they are all good,i could just list them all.Walking after you is one of my favourite foo songs of all time,its a perfect ballad with profound lyrics and a cracking middle eight segment,this is an album that needs a nice warm place in your cd player from time to time,could this album be perfect,certainly!
