Probably the best album to ever be released by the Foo Fighters, “The Colour & The Shape” further solidified Dave Grohl stepping out of grunge’s shadow and making peace with the ghost of Kurt Cobain. Just about all the songs here on this album are catchy and seem made for radio friendly, but underneath that surface is a demonically comical feel combined with a lot of emotion. On songs like the short opener “Doll”, “February Stars”, and the classic single “Everlong” you can hear the raw emotion in Grohl’s voice, and that is something that no one can fake. “Monkey Wrench” is still a great song, no matter how much it got overplayed, although another session of “My Hero” may prove nerve wracking considering it can be heard just about anywhere. Other great songs like “Hey! Johnny Park”, “My Poor Brain”, “See You”, and “Walking After You” (featured on the X-Files film soundtrack) are all great songs as well, and the band’s tight musicianship rounds out this excellent package. All in all, “The Colour & The Shape” is in my opinion the best Foo Fighters album yet, and is undoubtadly one of the finest albums of the 90’s.
