Really good album, with consistently really good songs start to finish. Can't list favorites because it's well more than half the album.

Great album, if a little inconsistent in terms of songwriting. Easily their best album and a standout late-90s hard rock/post-grunge album

Wellll, at least this has the great song Everlong on it, which is perhaps the best Foo Fighters song ever. That automatically ranks this above their previous self-titled album, which has NO great singles on it.

The best Foo Fighters album will always be the first one but this one is second. Now that they were a full band instead just Dave playing all by himself the sound and the production is so much better and it has more energy.. ohh and it has Everlong nuff said.

Fantastic album, but the problem I have with all of their albums is consistency. Still love them

A very good album from the Foo Fighters. My favorite album of theirs is probably There is Nothing Left to Lose, but this is a close second.

Musically, I am in love with this album. It is full of diversity. Even individual songs change dynamics throughout (Up in Arms, My Poor Brain). Grohl clearly took pages out of Kurt Cobain's book while writing, but has also drawn from his own creativity in his lyricism and musicianship. Grohl's songwriting was already phenomenal by this point in his career. His lyrics improved as his career went on, but even on " The Colour and The Shape", they are full of passion and emotion. His singing/screaming is both moving and thought-provoking.

I also love this album because it produced the greatest ever rock song (meaning, my favourite ever song), "Everlong". All-in-all, "The Colour and the Shape" is a masterpiece full of beautiful songs that defined rock and roll post-Nirvana and set the tone for what followed in the early 2000's era of music. I can never get enough of it and find myself listening to it on repeat constantly. Each track is exceptional and it is a rare album that is without filler.

While I I'm not that big into Foo Fighters, this record was pretty cool to listen to. Obviously the tracks Everlong, My Hero, and Monkey Wrench are fantastic singles. Walking After You and February Stars are cool tracks too. Front to back is a straight up rock album. It does the job well...
