The Colour and The Shape (1997) by Foo Fighters

I didn’t love their debut but grudgingly gave it an okay review because I figured it was better than most post grunge.
Well this one is significantly better than most post grunge, in part because Grohl has assembled a real band to play his songs, and the band is better than Grohl by himself.

The other thing is that Grohl has improved his songwriting rather immeasurably. I still don’t love his lyrics (I sometimes wonder how sections of lyrics fit together) but I think he has honed his craft enough that it makes me want to go back to the review I wrote of the first album and downgrade that one. This is significantly better than the debut.


Kudos on the proper spelling of colour
