Colour And The Shape
Taking a cue from the old Blondie marketing slogan, the sophomore effort from Dave Grohls post-Nirvana band was their The Foo Fighters is a band project -- well, at least it was intended that way, but Grohl pushed aside drummer William Goldsmith during the recording and played on the entire record. And who could blame him? When youre the greatest drummer in rock, its hard to sit aside for someone else, no matter how good your intentions, and Grohls drumming does give the Foos muscle underneath their glossy exterior. That slickness arrives via producer Gil Norton, hired based on his work with the Pixies, but he manages to give The Colour and the Shape almost too sleek a sheen, something that comes as a shock after the raggedness of the groups debut. Even the glossy final mix of Nevermind has nothing on the unapologetic arena rock of The Colour and the Shape -- its all polished thunder, rock & roll thats about precision not abandon. Some may miss that raw aggression of Grohls earlier work, but hes such a strong craftsman and musician that such exactness also suits him, highlighting his sense of melody and melodrama, elements abundantly in display on the albums two biggest hits, the brooding midtempo rockers My Hero and Everlong. Elsewhere, the Foos grind out three-chord rockers with an aplomb that almost disguises just how slick Nortons production is, but everything here, from the powerful rush of the band to the big hooks and sleek surface, wound up defining the sound of post-grunge modern rock, and it remains as perhaps the best example of its kind. [Legacys tenth anniversary edition of The Colour and the Shape was expanded by six bonus tracks, adding a clutch of non-LP B-sides, the highlight of which is a version of Gerry Raffertys Baker Street.] ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
