My personal favorite Foo Fighters album. Good read, although I would have expected longer for such a revered album.

I vividly remember being enthralled at Monkeywrench. I faked being sick two days in a row to watch the video on MTV (when it was still truly Music TeleVison). And I remember how bummed I was, after saving up my money, that the prongs that hold the disc were busted. Still have that exact case.

This album was my childhood, and it's a testament that it still holds up 1,000+ spins later.

Great review.
Never understood how he could shout all of those words near the end of the song without taking a breath.

The color and the shape is how rock music is supposed to sound, and how this band is supposed to sound. The greatest part about TC&TS is that it is as a whole musically temperamental. This album is great because it demonstrates versatility while simultaneously kicking your ass.

After this album this band changed formats from making great albums, to using formulas to sell their albums, and sell out stadiums. What do we owe this change in production and "musical value" to? "Everlong". Every album since, this song dropped, Dave has written a different version of "Everlong" because of the popularity of this one song. This song used to be a cool emotional song and now is the most over played over referenced song ever.

By the way Echoes, silence, patience, and grace was supposed to be the newer comparison to TC&TS, as gil norton produced it. Unfortunately aside from few songs (which were also singles) it is the biggest pile of shit i have ever listened to. One by One was a masterpiece compared to that album.

Also "The colour and The shape" title track b-side is one of the most kickass songs with a highly original riff, only the musically naive would underestimate it.

I don't even get what you're saying at this point. I'll just stop right now before this gets more ridiculous.
