The Colour and The Shape (1997) by Foo Fighters

Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me (1987) by The Cure

This is a record with a couple of The Cure’s best singles and a few other decent songs and way too much other stuff. It’s crazy that Smith claims to have written another record worth of songs for this album. Isn’t it long enough already?
